Stylish seniors living project planned for Liverpool Golf Club
LIVERPOOL Golf Club and Mounties Group, one of Sydney’s biggest sports, social and holiday clubs organisations, are looking at the feasibility of establishing a joint multi-million dollar development for seniors living on the picturesque Lansvale course’s current practice range.
In a joint media release early in May, the two partners stated that the planned development’s location on the elevated golf club site would offer the potential for it to become one of the best examples of a stylish Seniors Living Village in Sydney’s growing south-west region.
The release reported that the project would introduce a vibrant and secure environment for senior members of the community.
Liverpool Golf Club is conveniently located opposite Mounties Group’s community club, Club Italia, on Hollywood Drive, Lansvale.
The new development will provide the perfect location for seniors who wish to live independently and in close proximity to community services and entertainment.
While the specific elements of the village are yet to be determined, both clubs have already formed a working group to develop a concept plan for the site.
Liverpool Golf Club President Spiro Spiros said: “We’re delighted to be partnering with Mounties on this development.
“We’ve formed a close relationship over recent years and they were the logical fit when we were looking for a reputable and trusted partner to assist us with the opportunity. Mounties experience with similar projects will be of particular value and benefit to us.”
The Mounties Group currently controls seven registered sports and social clubs across Sydney as well as two health and fitness clubs and holiday resorts at Urunga, Fingal Bay, Koolora and Sussex Inlet.
Its Sydney organisations are Mounties (Mt Pritchard & District Community Club) at Mt Pritchard; Harbord Diggers Memorial Club at Harbord; Fairfield Bowling Club at Fairfield; Manly Bowling Club at Manly; Club Italia at Lansvale; Triglav at St Johns Park and Mekong at Cabramatta as well as M1 Mounties Health Club at Mt Pritchard and Freshwater Health and Fitness at Harbord.
The planned seniors development will be located on the peninsula formed by the Georges River and Prospect Creek.
The premium site offers panoramic views of the golf course and surrounding waterways in a quiet and secluded setting, while being situated only minutes from Liverpool’s central business district and entertainment precinct.
Kevin Ingram, Mounties Group President, said the partnership is a great example of the club industry working together to explore mutually beneficial opportunities.
“It will leverage the financial strength and seniors living experience of Mounties Group whilst taking advantage of the available land and tranquil location of Liverpool Golf Club,” he said.
“With Mounties Group’s extensive development experience, we are always open to opportunities like this.”
This announcement by Mounties Group comes as Mounties in Mt Pritchard is undergoing the first step in a major redevelopment and as Harbord Diggers is well underway with a new club and intergenerational living development project. •
