Estate News
The St Francis Links Villas near completion!
What started as a discussion over a cappuccino with Adrian Gardiner more than four years ago, has now become a reality and the first phase of sectional title units will be transferring in March 2024!

Sales have exceeded timeline expectations and more than 56% has now sold. The project development team aim for completion before we host the SDC Championships at the end of February. Although still a construction site, a walk along the Villas Avenue loop gives one a sense of a community within a community.  The landscaping which was started early on has enhanced the development and the units are beautifully placed, some with exquisite views! The St Francis Links Villas truly compliment the course and our estate.

St Francis Links is the Place to Be!
Our Growing Community
38 homes are under construction with new concept and plan submissions each week!
It is still remarkable that we were building approximately 22 homes at a time, with 54% permanent occupancy pre-Covid and today, we average 43 homes under construction and 82% permanent occupancy!

Families are choosing the Links for its sense of belonging, safety, natural environment, facilities and lifestyle. Our new Board is assessing the future and finances carefully and will expand in due course on the balanced priorities we can all look forward to.

3 Reasons to love golf
Quality time
What’s better than a few hours sharing a common passion with the special people in your life? It could be your partner, children, grandchildren or friends, or all of them.
Aside from the fact that walking 18 holes burns over a thousand calories, you’re also out in nature, unplugged from electronic devices and away from notifications, news feeds and stress. 
Eternal hope
You could hack through the rough on your way to the green, but save a shot by holing a 30-footer and it was all worth it. There’s always the next shot, the next hole, the next round to look forward to. There’s always a chance something special could happen.
For the love of the game

• The impact on power of a driver with two ‘flex’ zones to increase rebound speed and therefore ball speed.
• Noticeable improvement in forgiveness in high and low contact on the face.
• A clubhead you get back to the ball, square at impact more often.
