Liv­ing the Golf Course Life­style

Inside Golf - - On Course Living -

THE lush, rolling fair­ways of Pa­cific Dunes are a de­light to be­hold, whether you’re play­ing a round, en­joy­ing a stroll along the many walk­ing tracks or sim­ply re­lax­ing on your back deck.

It’s this en­vi­able ar­ray of op­tions that at­tracts Pa­cific Dunes’ res­i­dents— with some se­cur­ing land from as lit­tle as $195,000 and oth­ers choos­ing one of the many home and land pack­ages on of­fer.

The award-win­ning de­vel­op­ment is a spacious, mas­ter-planned res­i­den­tial es­tate set on 135 hectares of nat­u­ral bush­land less than half an hour from New­cas­tle or the golden beaches of Port Stephens and only an hour from the renowned Hunter Val­ley wine re­gion.

Syd­ney is an easy two-hour drive and the re­gion’s air­port is just min­utes away, of­fer­ing di­rect ser­vices to Syd­ney, Mel­bourne and Bris­bane.

Res­i­dents have ac­cess to the 25-me­tre pool, ten­nis courts, a com­mu­nity sum­mer­house, café, BBQ area, kids’ play­ground, parks and walk­ing tracks as well as the highly re­garded cham­pi­onship golf course.

Pa­cific Dunes is al­ready a well-es­tab­lished neigh­bour­hood, so the com­mu­nity spirit is alive and well. Young fam­i­lies will en­joy the parks and play­grounds, while Pa­cific Dunes’ own bar and restau­rant of­fer the per­fect places to meet with friends and neigh­bours for a meal or a drink.

The nearby town­ship of Me­dowie has a host of es­tab­lished com­mu­nity fa­cil­i­ties, in­clud­ing day care cen­tres, pri­mary schools, med­i­cal cen­tres, sport­ing fa­cil­i­ties and a shop­ping vil­lage. Pri­vate and pub­lic high schools are close by, along with the highly re­garded Univer­sity of New­cas­tle.

Ac­cord­ing to Sales Agent Sam Bud­den from Robin­son Prop­erty, Pa­cific Dunes is now of­fer­ing a wide range of new home and land pack­ages from the Hunter’s lead­ing builders to suit all bud­gets.

“With land prices start­ing from $195,000, the Fair­ways and Hill­side Precincts of­fer a rare op­por­tu­nity for peo­ple to dis­cover the re­laxed, spacious life­style on of­fer at Pa­cific Dunes,” said Mr Bud­den.

“We’re of­fer­ing sin­gle, split-level and two-storey de­signs on low-main­te­nance lots right through to half an acre.

“Pa­cific Dunes’ pres­ti­gious Fair­ways precinct has only 8 pre­mium home sites re­main­ing that en­joy some of the best views and as­pects never be­fore seen at Pa­cific Dunes.

“The blocks on of­fer are large and flat and have sweep­ing views over the greens and fair­ways.”

An­other ben­e­fit of join­ing the Pa­cific Dunes com­mu­nity is that you can choose your own builder; there are no re­stric­tions on which build­ing com­pany you choose to cre­ate your dream home.

Two res­i­den­tial Pa­cific Dunes Golf mem­ber­ships are in­cluded with ev­ery land pur­chase.

De­signed by renowned course ar­chi­tect James Wilcher, Pa­cific Dunes’ cham­pi­onship 18-hole golf course is ranked amongst the coun­try’s best and has earned ac­co­lades for its de­sign.

The par-72 course is based on strate­gic de­sign prin­ci­ples that will chal­lenge and ex­cite golfers of all abil­i­ties. The 6403-me­tre lay­out com­prises two dis­tinct loops of nine holes that are beau­ti­fully bal­anced in terms of length and dif­fi­culty. The back nine are in­ter­wo­ven among nat­u­ral lakes and wet­lands, while the out­ward nine me­an­der through the tall, na­tive tim­ber.

The wa­ter­ways act as fea­ture haz­ards on some holes, dic­tat­ing the line of play on tee shots and mak­ing club se­lec­tion crit­i­cal on ap­proaches. Na­tive an­gophoras and ma­hogany trees frame the back nine, en­cour­ag­ing the course to be­come an ex­ten­sion of the nat­u­ral land­scape.

Gen­tly un­du­lat­ing fair­ways with dis­tinct mound­ing and beau­ti­ful bunker­ing set into the land­ing ar­eas of­fer sand traps with lo­ca­tion and ori­en­ta­tion worth spe­cial men­tion.

The golf club is man­aged by Troon Golf, a recog­nised leader in pres­tige golf course man­age­ment and de­vel­op­ment around the world.

Troon’s Bren­dan Cur­rie said there are many ben­e­fits avail­able to mem­bers, with un­lim­ited golf, pre­ferred tee times, mem­ber guest rates and lots more.

“Mem­bers are en­ti­tled to ac­cess the Troon Golf Ad­van­tage Pro­gram, in­clud­ing com­pli­men­tary vouch­ers to play other Troon Golf man­aged cour­ses around Aus­tralia, up to $4000 in value.”
