Prime land on Kangaroo Island may be part of golf course development

POSTED ON December 11, 2017 @ 11:49 am

A PRIME stretch of coastal land on the southeast coast of Kangaroo Island is likely to be incorporated into a planned international-standard golf course development.

The 1km site south of Salt Lagoon is owned by the State Government and has an approximate value of $800,000.

But the Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources last month advertised a notice of intention to dispose of the site in The Advertiser.

 

The golf course development received major development approval in 2016 but the spokesman said it had subsequently changed ownership and the new owner wanted to redesign part of the course.

Having the additional land would “enable players to take advantage of the coastal scenery,” they said.

The golf resort development at Pennington Bay will span across 242.6ha of oceanfront land and expected to generate up to 60 temporary during construction as well as long-term jobs in hospitality, course maintenance and environmental restoration.
