Brookwater Golf Community celebrates another landmark year
January 1, 2012
Brookwater experienced another landmark year in 2011, with the premier golf community celebrating its tenth anniversary with the arrival of Drift at Brookwater, the announcement of the $30 million Brookwater Retail Village and the opening of the world-famous Ian Triggs Golf coaching facility at the Brookwater Golf & Country Club.
Brookwater deputy managing director Raynuha Sinnathamby said 2011 has been Brookwater’s biggest year yet, with the world-class residential community celebrating their tenth anniversary in September.
“Brookwater has evolved into a world-class golf residential community over the past decade, with 2011 marking our official tenth anniversary,” Ms Sinnathamby said.
“Brookwater residents have already seen such significant growth in the area, with 2011 bringing a combination of big names and major construction to the area,” she said.
Professional golfer and coach-of-champions Ian Triggs teamed up with the Brookwater Golf & Country Club to bring the world-famous Ian Triggs Golf coaching facility to Queensland, which officially opened in July last year.
Another big name to join the Brookwater Golf & Club was David Moore’s iconic restaurant, Drift, which relocated to Brookwater in May after the restaurant was devastated by the Brisbane Floods.
“We were pleased to welcome Drift to the Brookwater Golf & Country Club last year, with the iconic restaurant already becoming a favourite meeting place for residents, members and their guests,” Ms Sinnathamby said.
Construction of the $30 million Brookwater Retail Village began in December 2011, with the new community retail centre set to open in September this year.
The new one-stop shop Brookwater Retail Village will house a Mater Health Centre, Woolworths and eight specialty stores.
Brookwater deputy managing director Raynuha Sinnathamby said the opening of the Brookwater Retail Village will see Brookwater become one of the best-serviced residential communities in south-east Queensland.
“We are thrilled to be able to work with Mater Health Services and Woolworths to bring such a diverse range of health services and retail options to the local community,” Ms Sinnathamby said.
“Residents already have access to a range of premier community facilities, with the opening of the Brookwater Retail Village later this year firmly positioning Brookwater as a one of south-east Queensland’s most highly-sought after – and best-serviced – areas,” she said.
The new devlelopment follows Woolworths' initial presence in the Orion Springfield centre, with the retail giant opening one of their first Masters Home Improvement centres in Springfield Central in October 2011.
Ms Sinnathamby said residents and investors are also set to benefit from a range of new developments happening in the area over the new few years.
"Springfield City is experiencing rapid growth at the moment, with developments such as the expansion of Orion Town Centre, the Springfield rail line and upgrades to the Centenary Highway all contributing to the overall liveability of the area,' Ms Sinnathamby said.
