PI­RATES could be tak­ing over the for­mer The Great Es­cape site at Hil­larys Boat Har­bour.

The $5 mil­lion de­vel­op­ment would fea­ture two 18-hole pi­rateth­emed ad­ven­ture golf cour­ses and a FlowRider Dou­ble surf ma­chine set in a themed and an­i­mated trop­i­cal land­scape in­clud­ing a pi­rate ship, la­goons and erupt­ing vol­cano.

The de­vel­op­ment, from Pi­rate’s Cove Ad­ven­ture Golf, is with the WA Plan­ning Com­mis­sion for ap­proval but Wyllie Group said it had al­ready re­ceived sup­port in prin­ci­ple from the De­part­ment of Trans­port and the City of Joon­dalup.

Once ap­proved, con­struc­tion works would start later this year and be done in three stages to en­sure the fa­cil­ity opened for the 2019 sum­mer hol­i­days.

Pi­rate’s Cove di­rec­tors said this should mean the golf cour­ses would open in March.
