Australia’s first over-50 golf and country club
Australia’s first over-50 golf and country club to be built on Queensland’s Gold Coast
QLD-based land lease developer Halcyon will build the village at Mirvac’s Gainsborough Greens community at Pimpama, 50km south of Brisbane.
The 46 hectares (114 acres) site will be Halcyon’s eighth community and largest with over 500 homes. The deal includes the Gainsborough Greens Golf Club, 18-hole golf course and 34 hectares of residential development land.
Halcyon joint managing director Bevan Geissmann said the settlement cleared the way for Halcyon to reveal its masterplan for the site and the name of the project within months.
“The site itself is a green island within a master planned community, surrounded by reserves, greenery and golf but in proximity to all the daily amenities sought after by over 50.”
Dr Geissmann added the golf course would stay open to Gainsborough Greens residents and the public.
Mirvac Queensland residential general manager Warwick Bible said Halcyon’s plans would further improve Gainsborough Greens, by adding a whole new level of living for over-50s.
“We look forward to working side-by-side with Halcyon as the Gainsborough Greens community, which is already home to more than 1000 residents, continues to grow.”
The new clubhouse will be built on the western edge of the golf course adjoining Halcyon’s planned community.
