Visitor accommodation, including a 212 bed apartment/hotel-condominium, 250 woodland lodges and a 26-bed golf hotel
World-class golf facilities on the site consisting of an 18-hole championship course, 8-hole practice course and driving range
120 hectares of park and woodland with walking and cycling trails
A sports injury clinic
lndoor climate controlled water sports, adventure and other leisure facilities
The development is intended to occur in three phases and to generate significant numbers of new jobs. Visitor accommodation and indoor facilities will be based on a unique ‘Ecodome’ concept, with buildings arranged under a circular series of canopies.
