Justin Thomas and several other golfers took Air BnB to new levels for this weekend. When searching for a place to stay during the Valspar Championship, the group decided on quite the crib… like 40,000 square feet of crib.
What exactly do you get with so many square feet? Well to start, you get a one mile privacy wall surrounding the house. Inside this wall, you can find elevators, a game room, golf simulators and museums filled with all sorts of collectibles. Also included is a cigar room and a shark tank. That’s right, a shark tank, which should fit nicely with the super villain vibe. Not to mention more bedrooms and bathrooms than anyone needs.
The several other golfers staying with JT include Daniel Berger, Harold Varner III, Patrick Rodgers and Smylie Kaufman. When asked about the digs, Varner claimed: “Best place I’ve stayed in, ever”. That’s as clear cut as it gets.
Todd Wagner, partner in 2929 Entertainment and billionaire, owns the mega mansion. The estate is conveniently located 15 minutes from Innisbrook Resort, where the Valspar Championship takes place. As far as we know, the only thing the house does not include is a shuttle to and from the resort. But honestly, with 40,000 square feet you never know.
The players should feel pretty bad if they can’t find the mindset to play well at Valspar this weekend. Nothing says relaxation like hanging in the cigar room watching sharks swim around a tank. Pictures of the crib are pretty absent, cue the one mile privacy wall, but picture Vector’s house in “Despicable Me”.
If the inside of the house didn’t do it for you, good news. Outdoor amenities include a pool with a rock diving cliff, a lake stocked with bass, and a par-3 course designed by Jack Nicklaus. Forget what I said about the shark tank; NOTHING can get better than a private golf course designed by a golf legend in your backyard.
So don’t feel bad for any of these bros at Valspar this week. If they don’t play well, they get to go home to a shark tank and cigar room.
