Sanctuary Cove opens new clubhouse

The brand new state-of-the-art Sanctuary Cove Country Club clubhouse technically opened in December 2009 but the offi cial opening ceremony took place in early April. Over $12 million dollars was spent creating this exclusive and stunning golf clubhouse which is located overlooking the 18th hole on The Pines championship golf course. Designed by renowned architects Cox Rayner, the clubhouse features an undulating fl oating roof system that mimics the unique course layout of The Pines. Boasting full height glazed glass walls providing natural light and uninterrupted views of The Pines, it’s clear to see why members are thrilled with their new clubhouse. Sanctuary Cove Country Club President Greg Herring said members are thoroughly enjoying the new facilities. “Having the clubhouse overlooking the 18th hole of The Pines is perfect. There’s a real sense of camaraderie amongst our members who are now spending more time relaxing together in the Lakeside Bar and Jabiru Restaurant,” said Greg. Over 200 people attended the offi cial opening of the Sanctuary Cove Clubhouse including Mulpha Australia Executive Chairman Seng Huang Lee, Local Federal Member Mr Stuart Robert MP and Local State Member Michael Crandon MP.
