The $48,000 Luxury Golf Folio
THIS ISN’T FOR EVERYONE. In fact, there are only 10 Luxury Edition Golf Folios created by artists Paul Skellett and Simon Weitzman. Based on the design of a 14th century medieval Bible, the Golf Folio is called “an epic body of artwork celebrating the game, the terrain and where it’s all going.” It can be yours for as little as $48,000.
With contributions from winning Ryder Cup captain Colin Montgomerie and more than 50 other golf course architects, golf coaches, other industry professionals and celebrities from various creative fields, the Golf Folio features 140 fine art pieces contained in 18 chapters. It’s bound in 400-year-old Russia Hide that was pulled out of black silt during a marine salvage operation.
