Anyone know details about the sale to the over 50s developer?

Looks like plans to chop up the course, to squeeze in development.

From the limited knowledge I have of Pelican Waters, as an over 50 venture it would be a genuine prospect for many of that age group who are in the mid to late 50's, own a home but looking for something simpler in retirement.  Heck, I might even look at an interstate sea change.  Somehow I do not think that Rossdale has the same potential.  AND  $15M.... bargain

Had a game up there last year. Really enjoyed the course and as a visitor by myself was made to feel very welcome by the two members, great blokes.
Quite a friendly vibe in the clubhouse with lots of kids.
I reckon biggest challenge if they target over 50’s is perpetuating membership.
Lots of courses targets kids with coaching clinics and allowing them to get away with a bit of ruckus so that they don’t get put off the game and then go on to become future adult members.
So not sure if targeting over 50’s is a good strategy unless they incorporate and emphasise their junior program. Might be a false economy otherwise
