TPC Las Vegas

starting bid $400

Poppy Hills

starting bid $400


starting bid $400


VALUED AT $1,100

TPC Las Vegas is a gem of a par-71, 7,104 yard championship golf course designed by acclaimed architect Bobby Weed and World Golf Hall of Famer Raymond Floyd.

A true test of shot-making skill, the TPC Las Vegas golf course can challenge even the most seasoned of golfers, but remain playable for even the most novice of players. The lush greens weave through a scenic desert landscape of arroyos and barrancas over several hundred acres. 


The golf course plays at an elevation of between 2,000 and 2,500 feet, allowing you to get about 7-10 yards extra distance in the high desert. Your putts will pick up some speed breaking away from the mountains and mostly everything breaks toward the Stratosphere Resort and Casino, which you can see in the distance from certain points on the golf course.


VALUED AT $1,100

Immersed in the history of Pebble Beach Resort, the magnificence of Spyglass Hill and the breathtaking views a Spanish Bay, Poppy Hills stands tall in the center of them all providing guests with what our golf course architect Robert Trent Jones Jr. calls “the closest you can get to playing golf in a National Park.”

The team at Poppy Hills welcomes you to put the busy world behind you and surround yourself in nature enjoying each uniquely crafted hole chiseled through the towering Monterey Pines of the Del Monte Forest, offering sneak peaks of the beautiful and iconic Monterey Bay and a chance to enjoy watching playful young deer munching on a freshly sprung California Poppy.

Recently finding itself in Golf Digest’s Top 100 Courses You Can Play expect to find yourself on championship ready turf, flawless bentgrass greens, and perfectly manicured surroundings.


The new ranking was the last piece of the puzzle to solidify the fact that Poppy Hills belongs in Pebble Beach and is a must for anyone visiting Pebble Beach or the Monterey Peninsula.


VALUED AT $1,200

The crown jewel of CordeValle is our 7,360-yard, award-winning golf course, designed by internationally acclaimed golf architect Robert Trent Jones Jr. PGA Tour-quality challenges were brought to the par 72 course design, offering excitement and enjoyment to both the passionate and novice golfer.

Defined by Jones as his finest creation, the course envelopes CordeValle’s Northern California landscape of meandering creeks, sycamore trees, canyons, and broad meadows. With this unique blend of natural and designed elements, each round played on our championship course promises to be an exceptional one.

The course at CordeValle features multiple tees and approach angles for varying degrees of difficulty. Strategically placed bunkers with challenging bays, fingers, and folds establish the character of the course. An elevation change of only 150 feet throughout the entire 18 holes makes CordeValle walkable for the golf purist, and demands different tactics and club selections throughout the game.


Stephen Curry Autographed Jersey

This autographed jersey was worn by Stephen Curry during game five of the 2019 playoffs against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Starting bid is $500. All bid increases are a minimum of $25.


VALUED AT $10,000

Stephen Curry is a 7-time all-star, 3-time NBA World Champion and 2-time MVP. He has set multiple three point records including making 96 three point shots during the month of April 2021.

For his career, he has 21 games of 10+ threes. The next closest player is Thompson with five. He holds the record for the most triples in a season (402) and has made the second-most in league history (2,779)

Bernard's acrylic abstracts, pastel paintings and ink sketches exhibit great power. "Passion, color, texture, spontaneity, and balance are the core of my acrylic abstract paintings and contemporary jazz and music pieces," says Bernard. "Inspired by the struggle, humor and spirituality in the balance of life, I paint - usually without a brush." Bernard's unique method of painting - often using his hands, cardboard or rags - has become one of his trademarks.
