Parkwood is set to become home to a world-class integrated golf and surf resort with the proposed development of the Gold Coast’s first surf park, the ‘Endless Surf Wave Lagoon’, to sit alongside the existing 18-hole golf course.

Endless surf waves

The proposed plans will complement the Community HUB & High-Performance Centre at Parkwood Village, with the addition of beach-like lagoon offering quality waves to suit all abilities.

Parkwood Village will spend the next few months working with the community and local council reconfiguring the current approval to accommodate the Endless Surf Wave Lagoon and upgrades to the golf course.

“There is nothing more quintessentially Australian than surfing. We want to make sure Parkwood becomes the heart of sport here on the Gold Coast,” Mr Altschwager said.

“A world-class surf break is a perfect fit for our active community as it anchors a whole new level of economic investment into the area.

“Couple this with a multi-millon dollar make-over to the 18-hole golf course and a beautiful family resort, it will be a game-changer!

“The hope is that by 2023, Parkwood Village will be an exciting sports and family venue, which will be renowned across Australia, and training the next generation of world golf, rugby league and surfing champions.

WhiteWater

“Endless Surf will be manufactured by WhiteWater, a world-famous Canadian-based wave pool and water park attraction developer.

WhiteWorld have also announced surf park projects in La Vague Paris, Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, Vietnam and more.

“The Endless Surf technology is on the cutting edge of wave pool technologies. The variety and Quality of the waves is going to truly revolutionise the sport,” Mr Altschwager said.

“A big attraction for us was that WhiteWater is a family run company with an approach to business much like ours, driven by a sense of community and purpose to provide the very best experiences that enhance lives.

Waves up to 2.4 meters

“Offering safe, predictable and quality waves up to 2.4 Meters in size in a controlled environment, the Endless Surf Pool is a natural shape that provides a large ‘beachfront’ for a genuine surf feel.

Paul Chutter, President of Endless Surf, said, “There are those projects which epitomize what we are trying to do, with great clients who contribute to our collaborative approach – Luke and the Parkwood team are a perfect example of this.

They share our passion for pushing technological boundaries, putting Endless Surf as the heart and soul of their development in order to build a vibrant community hub.

The venue’s existing high-performance sports focus will lend itself to this world-class surf showcase and help develop the talents of a whole new generation of local surfers.

“The pool will be complemented by the existing golf course, approved future resort hotel and food and beverage facilities.

The Club at Parkwood Village is a well-established leisure destination located in the centre of the Gold Coast, only 10 minutes from Surfers Paradise.
