The proposal comprises

  • An 18-hole, championship-length golf course and associated international standard practice facilities.
  • Clubhouse and dining/functions facilities, with associated parking. The clubhouse facility also includes 20 accommodation suites (tourist accommodation).
  • Accommodation lodges, comprising 20 twin-bedroom suites with self-contained facilities.
  • Staff accommodation ( for up to 10 staff), including a separate dwelling for the golf superintendent.
  • Discreetly located maintenance compound (including a 1200 square metres maintenance shed) to accommodate golfing equipment, wash-down bays, green-keeping machinery and general back-of-house storage requirements.
  • Five freehold, residential allotments, which could be used for limited unit/villa development and leased back to the golf course when not in use by the private owners. The residential component would be developed during stage 1, to be sold to assist the financing of later stages of the development.
  • New entry road from Hog Bay Road, incorporating road-widening/slip lanes (as required) to provide access to all elements of the proposal.
  • Power and water supply to the site, including a water storage dam (and potentially including wind and solar technology to augment existing power supplies).
  • Storm water and sewage infrastructure for the capture, treatment, storage and reuse of recycled water throughout the development (where possible).
  • A coastal walking trail.
