In case you missed it, the Sunshine Coast Daily ran an article on Tuesday 19th July regarding the Club Development Proposal. The article highlights some of the broader vision and long term strategic plans of both the Club and the Developer (Mount Coolum PGA Pty Ltd) with what the development could mean to the Club, its members, the local community and the broader Sunshine Coast Region.

Club drives push for development rezoning
ANOTHER Sunshine Coast golf club is looking for a favourable rezoning as the pathway to a stronger balance sheet and improved facilities.
Mount Coolum Golf Club has received a $40,000 non-refundable deposit from Mount Coolum PGA Pty Ltd to secure the right to redevelop fairways along Suncoast Drive as a 100-lot residential housing estate.
That is down payment on a deal which includes the course redesign and redevelopment, a new club house with bar and dining facilities and the balance in cash to a total value of $15m.
Club president Al Bruschweiler said 96% of members at a special meeting had supported the proposal which would see the fairways relocated to another 7.4ha parcel of lease hold land the club has held for the past 24 years.
The land is zoned environmental under the 2014 Sunshine Coast Council Planning Scheme and would need re-designation as sport and recreation for the scheme to go ahead.
The developer would then also need to successfully rezone land on Suncoast Drive from sport and recreation to residential.
Mr Bruschweiler said the club had struggled for membership for the past few years with the deal likely to secure its financial position for the next 30 years.
It would also deliver a golf clubhouse which would be a facility for general community use as well as much-needed practice facilities for junior players.
He said the club had a target of 700 full time members supplemented by country and other class memberships.
There was no plans to alter the tree-lined nature of the golf course which would extend to the new holes.
Mr Bruschweiler said if the rezoning was approved there would be no hand over of the existing fairways until the new ones were built.
Mount Coolum PGA Pty Ltd director Jason Hague said if the rezoning approvals were allowed a 100-lot housing subdivision would be created along the rim of the re-configured golf course.
Although the properties would also front Suncoast Beach Drive access is proposed via an internal road.
He described as a mistake the continued zoning of the 7.4ha parcel – known as Lot 152 – as environmental management instead of sport and recreation. Mr Hague said other parcels of land in the same lease agreement were zoned sport and recreation.
Mr Hague said there was a long-term vision to return to the Sunshine Coast the Australian PGA, previously staged at Coolum Hyatt and then Palmer Resort.
Development Watch president Lyn Saxton said consideration needed to be given to home owners on the northern side of Suncoast Beach Drive who had purchased their properties on the understanding they overlooked a golf course not the roofs of houses.
Divisional Councillor Jason O’Pray said he has requested an update on the rezoning application which he he didn’t expect to come before the council until the August or September meeting.
Cr O’Pray said he had received numerous approaches from golf club members during the local government election campaign, seeking his support for the proposal.
