Laguna Quays sold
HOPES are high that Laguna Whitsundays' once picture perfect 18-hole Turtle Point Golf Course will be refurbished following news of its sale.
The property has been left in less than perfect condition since its closure last year.
Formerly known as Laguna Quays Resort, it is 45km south of Airlie Beach and 16km from Proserpine.
The property has been sold to Fullshare Holdings Group, according to a statement posted on the Save Laguna Whitsundays website.
Archers Body Corporate also confirmed the sale when they issued a statement to all Cascade condominium owners updating them on the future of their units on the grounds.
"We can advise that the resort has a new owner being a company by the name of Fullshare, which has a sole director from Hong Kong," the statement said.
"Fullshare has also purchased the Cascade units formerly owned by the Marriner entities.”
The statement said the condition of the resort was still "not good".
"There is now only one maintenance employee who, whilst doing his best, cannot cope to keep on top of the requirements of the resort," the statement said.
"The result is that many of the fairways have a metre-high grass. Power has been cut to some of the facilities due to non-payment of charges. We can only hope that we will start to see this improve with the new owner."
The embattled Laguna Quays Resort experienced a range of issues during the tenure of former owner David Marriner, accumulating unpaid rates over a three-year period from 2005, which amounted to $1million.
Fullshare Holdings Group has not provided comment yet.
