Golf and surf resort coming to Parkwood

The proposed ‘Endless Surf Wave Lagoon’ will be adjacent to the 9th and 18th holes at Parkwood Golf Club.

Living Choice’s first Gold Coast retirement community, Living Choice Parkwood, which will be located within the vibrant The Club at Parkwood Village precinct, is set to become even more appealing to the “un-retiring” following the exciting announcement that Parkwood will become home to a world-class integrated golf and surf resort.

The Gold Coast’s first surf park, the ‘Endless Surf Wave Lagoon’, will sit alongside the existing 18-hole golf course, adjacent to the 9th and 18th holes, and just a short walk or buggy ride from the retirement apartments.

The pool will be complemented by the existing golf course, approved future resort hotel, food and beverage facilities and the Living Choice retirement resort, which will start construction later this year.

Luke Altschwager, Managing Director of The Club at Parkwood Village, said the proposed plans would complement the Community Hub & High-Performance Centre at Parkwood Village, with the addition of beach-like lagoon offering quality waves to suit all abilities, from beginner to professional.

“Parkwood Village will spend the next few months working with the community and local council reconfiguring the current approval to accommodate the Endless Surf Wave Lagoon and upgrades to the golf course.

“There is nothing more quintessentially Australian than surfing. We want to make sure Parkwood becomes the heart of sport here on the Gold Coast,” Mr Altschwager said.

“A world-class surf break is the perfect fit for our active community and anchors a whole new level of economic investment into the area.

“Couple this with a multi-million dollar make-over to the 18-hole golf course, a beautiful family resort plus a retirement resort - it will be a game changer!

“The hope is that by 2023, Parkwood Village will be an exciting sports and family venue, which will be renowned across Australia, and training the next generation of world golf, rugby league and surfing champions.

Endless Surf will be manufactured by Whitewater, a world-famous Canadian-based wave pool and water park attraction developer. Whitewater has also announced surf park projects in La Vague Paris, Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, Vietnam and more.

“The Endless Surf technology is on the cutting edge of wave pool technologies. The variety and quality of the waves is going to truly revolutionise the sport. Offering safe, predictable and quality waves up to 2.4 meters in size in a controlled environment, the Endless Surf Pool is a natural shape that provides a large ‘beachfront’ for a genuine surf feel,” said Mr Altschwager.
