THE very first res­i­dent at Hal­cyon Greens has un­loaded his golf clubs and moved into his new house.

The $250 mil­lion mas­ter­planned com­mu­nity in Pim­pama is Aus­tralia’s first over 50s golf and res­i­den­tial com­mu­nity.

Re­tiree Barry Dempsey was the first res­i­dent of the 500-home devel­op­ment to move in this week.

“Hal­cyon of­fered ex­actly what I was look­ing for all in one pack­age plus I’ll be liv­ing on a golf course — that’s the dream,” he said.

“I love golf, but un­for­tu­nately haven’t been able to play for about 40 years so I love that I’ll be liv­ing on a golf course and will have ac­cess to it ev­ery day.

The Hal­cyon Greens recre­ational area in­cludes 2.4ha of park­land, club­house, out­door and heated in­door pool, cham­pi­onship-size bowl­ing green, flood­lit ten­nis court, cin­ema, gym and dance stu­dio, out­door am­phithe­atre and walk­ing trails.

Hal­cyon joint man­ag­ing direc­tor Be­van Geiss­mann said the ar­rival of the first res­i­dents was a ma­jor mile­stone for Hal­cyon Greens, which is the de­vel­oper’s sev­enth and largest project in South East Queens­land.
