Retirement village developer Living Choice has moved to the next stage of its development plans for the Flagstaff Hill Golf Club, with the lodgement of a $28 million application for residential apartments and a new clubhouse.
Living Choice lodged the stage two plans with Onkaparinga Council (see artist's impression above). The plans were on exhibition, for public comment, until 5 August.
The plans include:
Two three-storey, and two five-storey, residential flat buildings including 110 dwellings
A mixed use building of six-storeys with clubrooms and leisure facilities as well as 12 apartments over the three upper floors
New car parking for the golf club and village visitors
The development, south of Adelaide, is believed to be South Australia’s first integrated retirement complex and golf course.
Construction is now underway on the first development stage, which includes 42 spacious, contemporary villas on the old practice fairway. See more details here.
Flagstaff Hill Golf Club is a picturesque par 72 golf course studded with old gums and two natural creeks.
Many attractive native shrubs and trees line the fairways, making it an enjoyable place to play golf.
A golf course architect has been engaged to elevate the course to the best Tier 2 club in South Australia.
The company said the new clubhouse will include an on-site restaurant and café, cinema, indoor heated pool, golf simulator, gymnasium, wellness centre, hairdressing salon, library, auditorium with stage, children’s room and juniors’ lounge and large function room with stage.
Downsizing.com.au reported in July how golf courses across Australia are increasingly teaming up with retirement villages, including to help their finances.
