Retirement village to integrate with Golf Course

Written by:

The State Government has revoked ‘open space’ zoning on Flagstaff Hill Golf Club to make way for the first retirement village integrated with a golf course in South Australia.

Planning documents for the $40 million village, to be developed by Living Choice Australia, should be lodged with Onkaparinga Council within the next month.

The golf club agreed last year to sell part of its land along Memford Way to Living Choice to clear existing debt and make it more financially stable.

The open space classification, which did not allow residential housing, was established when the golf course was built in 1967.

Davenport state Liberal MP Steve Murray said the club had been an important part of the community for many years.

“The end result is a momentous step in the journey to where this club wants to go and will ensure its future viability and provide more opportunities for young people,” he said.

As part of the deal, Living Choice will renovate the golf clubhouse to include an indoor heated pool, cinema, refurbished restaurant, bar and coffee shop, licensed deck, golf simulators, juniors’ lounge, gymnasium, hair salon and library.

The retirement village will have 42 villas and 108 apartments for 200 residents.
