New club gets go-ahead
THE Boyne Island Tannum Sands Club has received the green light.
The Boyne Tannum Trust, developer of the Boyne Tannum Country Club Estate, announced that the $200 million project had begun implementation after almost four years of detailed planning applications and environmental impact studies.
The Boyne Island Tannum Sands Club will boast new lawn bowls facilities including a new clubhouse, the addition of a brand new Aquatic Centre, and a new 18-hole championship golf course designed by leading Australian course designer and legendary golfer Graham Marsh.
Jean-Mic Perrine of Perrine Architecture said the driving force behind the vision for the new Boyne Tannum Country Club Estate was to embrace the natural landscape.
“The buildings will integrate with and participate in their environment, yet allow the beauty of the surrounding riverscape and landscape to be the focus of the unique lifestyle that residents will enjoy,” Mr Perrine said.
The development includes riverfront townhouses, luxury apartments, golf course homes and retirement villas.
Gladstone’s acting Mayor, Cr Gail Sellers, said the council was encouraged by the prospect of having a first-class sporting and entertainment venue in the Boyne/Tannum area.
“Boyne/Tannum residents now have a first class sporting and entertainment venue on their doorstep with access to an 18-hole golf course, new lawn bowls
facilities, and a 25m eight-lane swimming pool that is open to the public,” Cr Sellers said.
“The inclusion of multi-storey housing and course-side villas in the development makes the
project commercially viable, providing Boyne/Tannum residents, and those in the wider Gladstone region, with excellent entertainment facilities without cost to ratepayers.
