Golf resort community planned for Whitsundays, Australia

A 710-acre site in the Whitsundays, a gateway to Australia’s Great Barrier Reef and other vacation destinations on coastal Queensland, is slated to become a resort community with an 18-hole golf course.

The community will be called Regatta Waters, and it’ll have an 18-hole golf course designed by Graham Papworth. Links Living, the property’s previous owner, had hired Papworth to design the golf course for a community it was calling Whitsunday Springs.

The Whitsunday Times says that Papworth’s challenge at Regatta Waters will be “to strike a balance between providing a rewarding golfing experience with the demands of the surrounding residential community.”

The demands may be substantial, for Latitude aims to build as many as 2,500 housing units.
