Next time you are planning a trip to the tourism Mecca of the Southwest break the journey at Bunbury and use it as a starting point rather than a by-pass. An exciting resort development, The Sanctuary, awaits you at Pelican Point, some 4 kms from Australind and just 100m right off the main Perth - Bunbury road about 12 kms before the city.
The golf course now also includes apartments located right on the course. These are in addition to the fashionable real estate development The Golf, Lake & Canal Estates which the course moulds itself around, offering a unique lifestyle in Bunbury. The apartments can be purchased and managed for the investor, and they will offer a welcome addition to accommodation choices in this first part of the Southwest. The views from the apartments are superb, and you feel like you are stepping onto the fairway as it is landscaped to blend into the course proper.
The Clubhouse facilities have been expanded to include new changing rooms, a function centre and extensive conference facilities. The total package should have great appeal to the corporate market.
The Michael Coate designed 18-hole layout opened as a complete 18 in October 1994. Its distinguishing features are water, water and more water - in fact it comes in to play on no less than 12 holes and even the driving range is an aqua one using floating golf balls. There are 64 bunkers, large inviting greens and immaculate, tightly cropped Windsor green fairways. Apart from the water hazards you pay the price for going off the fairways with sandy lies in much of the rough but there is no "ball eating" bush to fear. It is a low lying, flat course, easy to walk, although carts are available for those who desire them. A pleasant change from the current crop of resort courses is the absence of paved cart paths, which can intrude so much.
