First European Jack Nicklaus Branded Residential Golf Development Under Construction

Nicklaus Companies and award-winning developer FM Group have launched the first residential golf community in Europe to be carry the legendary golfer’s name at Stonehaven in Scotland.

The development of luxury homes at the historic Ury Estate is being built around an 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course which is also the site of a castle, with the developer marketing it as one of the  most exclusive golf residential-resort communities in the world.

Nicklaus Companies – a venture between the golfer and New York banker, Howard Milstein, have designed over 435 golf courses in 46 countries worldwide, however, fewer than 10 have been selected to brand the real-estate offering, which speaks to the special nature of Ury’s setting.

The first phase of the 1,600 acre multi-million-pound development is launched today, comprising fully-serviced self-build plots and five-bedroom luxury homes for sale within The Nicklaus Village. The Village is the first of three phases of development that will be released, including Golden Bear Homes and The Jack Nicklaus Retreat.

Owners can either buy or build their dream home, located on the edge of the magnificent Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, with most affording a spectacular view of it.

The exclusive neighbourhood also boasts views of the historic Ury Castle and is set within a stunning rural landscape, delivering the ultimate in countryside living.

Nestled between the rich countryside and stunning coastline of Aberdeenshire, with the historic harbour town of Stonehaven nearby, Aberdeen International Airport is a mere 30-minute drive away via the A90 bypass.

Known worldwide as the ‘Golden Bear’, Jack is an 18-time major championship winner, including the Opens he won on Scottish soil, twice at St Andrews (1970 and 1978) and at Muirfield (1966). Jack’s love of Scotland is well-recognised and was acknowledged in 2005 when the Golden Bear became the only living non-UK national to feature on British currency. He was recently made an honorary citizen of St Andrews.

Nicklaus comments: “I am proud to be launching my first branded real estate development in Europe in Scotland, the home of golf, which holds a very special place in my heart.

“Ury Estate is a unique development which is set to be one of the world’s most prestigious golfing destinations. We are delighted to be creating the opportunity for people to buy or build their dream home at the course.

“The Nicklaus Village at Ury Estate offers a luxury lifestyle experience, with family homes situated in a country setting affording a spectacular panorama of the Aberdeenshire countryside and coastline.”

Jonathan Milne, representing site owner and developer, the FM Group, adds: “We couldn’t be more excited to be launching The Nicklaus Village, a luxury lifestyle community that will be unique in Scotland’s northeast.

“Nicklaus Companies have a track record of creating stunning residential communities at their courses world-wide, and we are very proud to be bringing Europe’s first Nicklaus branded residential development to Scotland.

“With a limited number of plots available, we’re expecting considerable demand from interested buyers both locally and internationally. This will include both golf enthusiasts and those who want to enjoy life in a stunning natural setting.”

Prices range from £600,000 for fully-serviced self-build plots and from £950,000 for the luxury homes.
