Mr. Dalton is the President and Chief Operating Officer of Maui Jim, a sunglasses company that got its start nearly 50 years ago in Hawaii.

The property features a 4,544-square-foot, 4-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom home that sits on the 13th hole of the golf course, which is a replica of the famous 17th hole at Saint Andrews Links.

The primary living space boasts tall ceilings with beams, a fireplace, and built-in shelving with lighting, as well as a wall designed for wine display.

The home is one of several in the Ocala area that have sold for multiple millions of dollars in recent weeks.

In February, a 23.57-acre property built by the founders of the World Equestrian Center sold for over $4 million. Located along “Millionaire’s Row,” the property was developed in 1998 by the Roberts Development Corporation, which was founded by the late Ralph L. “Larry” Roberts, Sr.
