Sporting lifestyles of the rich and famous

Well, this is how “the other 0.00005 percent” lives:

The Pine Creek Sporting Club in Okeechobee, Fla, bills itself as “the only private community in the U.S. centered on shooting sports.” Golf legends Jack Nicklaus and Nick Price are among its founders. Others include Italian gunmaker Tulio Fabbri and former NFL star Tucker Frederickson.

The facility offers more than 1,000 acres of quail fields, a sporting clays course, a five-stand sporting clays field, a rifle and pistol range, dog kennels, horse stables, a members lodge, guest suites, nature trails, a restaurant and a helipad.

Oh, yeah, there’s also real estate for sale. Twenty-two lots, each more than 40 acres, ranging in price from $800,000 to $1.2 million apiece.

The club’s $25,000 yearly dues include  ammunition, birds, guided hunting and lot maintenance.
