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. •
