Sunshine Coast golf course site hits the market

POSTED ON July 23, 2018 @ 7:08 pm

A Greg Norman-designed golf course and permit-approved development site on the Sunshine Coast has hit the market with expectations around the $20 million-mark.

The 160-hectare Pelican Waters Golf Course site, which was acquired in 2004 by a Melbourne family that wishes to remain anonymous, has hit the market after receiving development approval for a new residential precinct in the area.

Approved by the Sunshine Coast Council in 2017, the “Lakes Edge” residential precinct is earmarked for 211 residential lots and three medium-density sites subdivided to create up to 259 lots over 20-hectares.

Designed to be delivered over four stages, with stage one approvals in place for 60 lots the development was subject to some controversy by local residents opposing the development.

The residential development was put forward by the owners of the site as a solution to lacklustre turnover at the golf course.

CBRE’s Brendan Robins and Rem Rafter are marketing the asset.

Robins said the property represented an outstanding opportunity to capitalise on the strong demand for quality land and housing in a sought-after area of the Sunshine Coast.

“Lakes Edge offers a diverse range of staged development options, including a large-scale retirement community, which take advantage of the area’s tranquil, picturesque and secure setting.”

Despite being named the top course on the Sunshine Coast by Golf Digest Magazine, documents submitted to council outlined concerns with the club’s profitability.

“Independent forecasts conclude that Pelican Waters Golf Club will not generate an acceptable level of commercial return for at least seven to 10 years,” the proposal said.

Located five minutes to Caloundra and 90 kilometres from Brisbane, population growth in the Pelican Waters area grew 24.5 per cent over the five years to 2016.

The property is being offered for sale via expressions of interest closing 8 August 2018.
