An agreement has been reached to secure the long-term future of The Dunes golf course near Port Hughes on South Australia’s Yorke Peninsula.
The high-profile development, including a Greg Norman-designed golf course, went into receivership last year.
But in February, the new developers Rural Bank transferred the golf course to the Copper Coast Council in a bid to revitalise it.
The bank has endorsed a 21-year lease between the Council and the newly-formed Copperclub Golf and Community Association.
Council chief executive Peter Harder said the lease was an important step towards a secure future for the golf course.
“We are pleased to work with the newly-formed association and look forward to a long and constructive relationship with them,” he said.
Chairman Richard Freer said the association was hoping the community would get behind the golf course and its operations.
“We will continue to work towards securing a viable long-term future for the golf course to provide certainty to The Dunes residents and the local community, in addition to golf club members,” he said.
“The success of the golf club will continue to rely on the support of existing members and the local community and it is encouraging to see the extent to which they are already getting behind the arrangement.”
