Tee off at golf course
The first residents have arrived at over 50s golf and residential community Halcyon Greens
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.
