PGA golfer Geoff Ogilvy sells tennis court estate in Del Mar

PGA golfer Geoff Ogilvy gets $6 million for his tennis court estate in Olde Del Mar

Former U.S. Open champion Geoff Ogilvy, who has totaled $1.044 million in tour earnings this year, has sold his ocean-facing home in Del Mar for $6 million.

The tennis court estate, built in 2008, centers on views of the coastline from more than half an acre in Olde Del Mar. The 4,633 square feet of living space includes a gourmet kitchen with a breakfast bar, den, dining room, great room, office, four bedrooms and four full bathrooms.

A formal living room, clad in hardwood and curving windows, features custom built-ins and a wall fireplace. The master retreat has a fireplace and private balcony.

Set above the tennis court on the tiered grounds, a patio includes an outdoor kitchen and a sun deck in more than 1,000 square feet.

Ogilvy, 37, won his eighth PGA Tour title earlier this month when he took first place at the Barracuda Championship in Reno. In 2006, he bested Jim Furyk, Colin Montgomere and Phil Mickelson by one stroke to win the U.S. Open.

Public records show that Ogilvy and his wife, Juli, paid $4.15 million for the property in 2009. The couple had asked as much as $6.75 million for the home in March. Brett Combs of Pacific Shore Platinum listed the property on behalf of the Ogilvys. Deborah Lokanc of Jelley Real Estate represented the buyer in the sale, which closed Friday.
