Former Chargers running back Darren Sproles has listed his Santaluz estate for $2.78 million. Sproles, who played for San Diego from 2005 to 2010, bought the 5,957 square-foot home in 2012 for $2.5 million. The property, listed Friday, has four bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, a game room, pool, outdoor kitchen and courtyard with a fireplace. Sproles now plays for the Philadelphia Eagles, but he keeps his permanent home in San Diego. Sproles and his wife Michel figured the regular season would be a good time to try to sell the 1.56 acre property. “It’s their primary residence abd their main concern is just to get something out of it and move on to the next thing and just make sure …

When he played for the Chargers, Sproles lived in a 5,600-square-foot home in the StoneBridge community of Scripps Ranch. He bought the property the property in Santaluz while he played for the New Orleans Saints.

Earlier this year, the Saints traded Sproles to the Eagles. Soon after, Sproles listed his Metairie, La., home for $650,000, which he bought for $595,000 in September 2011, the Los Angeles Times reported

Lakeside Country Club in Houston Texas, A Remarkable Golf Course In Houston Texas.

Lakeside Country Club, a Country Club by invitation only in Houston  Texas.

Lakeside Country Club in Houston Texas was founded in 1951 and membership is by invitation only.

Lakeside Country Club in Houston Texas was founded in 1951 and membership is by invitation only.

My recent driving trip on my way home from Alabama included a very special stop in Houston Texas. A good friend (I’d like to say now since I was invited to play his private country club) and client invited me to join his family and play golf at their Country Club Lakeside at 100 Wilcrest Drive in Houston Texas. I was really in for a treat as I did not have time to study up on this very “old world” exclusive course in the center of the city. Lakeside Country Club was founded in 1951 as a private club. The club has approximately 209 acres of golf designed by renowned golf architect Ralph Plummer in 1952 and then updated by golf architect Ron Prichard in 1990.

Lakeside Country Club  has a colorful history dating back to 1861 when the State of Texas deeded this acreage and approximately 1,500 more to Christiana Williams for the sum of $2,000! Since then, the acreage has been subdivided, sold to others and around 1934 the clubhouse (which was the original mansion on the estate) was built. In 1946, the property was sold to Ralph Rupley, who became a charter member of the club.  The charter of Lakeside Country Club was signed in November of 1951.  Since then, horse stables, a bath house, swimming pool and a driving range has been added to create a family atmosphere.

I felt I played a round of golf on a piece of American History. Luckily I had a good round!

I have played all three courses and I must stay finishing on a par 5 on the Dinah Shore Course reminds me of all the professional LPGA Players that have played the same course. In the summer, I got to tell you, jumping in the lake sounds pretty attractive too,  just like the winners!

Here are some more photos of the courses and I hope you get a chance to get out and experience Indian Wells Country Club for yourself one day!

All Rancho Santa Fe home owners and condo owners alike will be able to own their own membership at the prestigious Rancho Santa Fe Country Club. Presently, one must own a detached home or stay at the famed Rancho Santa Fe Inn.

The Rancho Santa Fe Association voted 7-0 on April 17th in favor of granting condomininum owners RSF Golf Club  membership rights.

“We have a limited footprint of which to draw from and anything to increase that footprint will help with the membership.” Said Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club Board President, Mike Philips. “It’s a matter of equity. This is a common sense solution  to something that been kind of a thorn in the side for folks for a long time.”

In other Golf Club news, the Association board approved changes to the club’s bylaws to increase the total number of junior executive memberships from 20 to 30. The membership category allows members under the age of 48 to spread out their enrollment fees in installments.

Castro said that in the two years since approving the membership category, they have recruited 18 junior executive members. After the members hit the age of 48, they become regular members of the club and a spot in the junior executive membership category opens up.

If joining the Rancho Santa Fe Country Club is something you have always wanted and would like to see available condos in Rancho Santa Fe, please don’t hesitate to give us a call for showings at The Biszantz Connection at 619-417-4655.
