Pacific Golf Club
Reside Communities and Pacific Golf Club are partnering to develop a market-leading retirement community alongside one of Brisbane’s best golf courses.
About the project
Reside Communities propose to build a retirement community at 430 Pine Mountain Road, Carindale.
The proposed village would offer maintenance-free apartment living in a community of like-minded neighbours, right next door to one of Brisbane’s best golf courses and close to shops and essential services in the heart of Carindale.
The proposed project would comprise seven architecturally designed buildings offering modern independent living apartments in a mix of sizes and floor plans. Each home would be purpose-built and beautifully presented with one, two or three bedrooms, a fully appointed kitchen and stunning views.
One bedroom apartment from $490,000
Two bedroom apartment from $595,000
Two bedroom plus study apartment from $685,000
Three bedroom apartment with double car space from $850,000
The project would also include dedicated resident amenities, including an indoor swimming pool, cinema, resident bar, health and wellness centre and private village bus, along with ample landscaped green space for residents and club members to enjoy.
A Development Application was lodged in March 2019 and is currently under assessment by Brisbane City Council.
Pricing is subject to Development Approval and may change at Operator’s discretion.
Why is this project so important?
Like many areas in Brisbane, Carindale doesn’t have enough quality retirement living options to meet demand from the growing number of residents over 70.
Almost 7,800 residents in the local area are aged over 70. Over the next 10 years, this number is expected to increase by more than 2,500 (up 33 percent) to more than 10,000.
While many people choose to grow older in their home, many would prefer to downsize and enjoy a maintenance-free, independent lifestyle with access to activities, events and facilities, not to mention the peace of mind brought by ageing in a supportive environment.
The proposed Pacific Golf Club community aims to deliver high-quality, purpose-built housing for locals who want to experience this lifestyle in the area they know and love.

Why a retirement village?
In the Carindale statistical area (which takes in the suburbs of Carindale, Carina Heights, Holland Park, Mt Gravatt, Mansfield and Holland Park West), almost 7800 residents are aged over 70. This is expected to increase over the next 10 years by more than 2,500 (up 33 percent) to more than 10,000.*
Like many areas in Brisbane, Carindale doesn’t have enough retirement living options to meet demand. Unfortunately, this means many long-term Carindale residents have to consider leaving the community they have lived in for decades to find a place to retire.
This project will provide retirement options to suit a range of different needs right in the heart of Carindale, with easy access to shops and essential services.

About our partnership
Reside Communities and Pacific Golf Club have partnered on this project to create quality retirement living options for the local community and to future-proof the Club’s sustainability.
The cost of operating and maintaining a golf club is a significant ongoing challenge and the proposed development would provide a long-term, ongoing income stream for the club without impacting on the course or the Club’s ownership of the land.
The project site represents just 1.5 hectares of the 53 hectares owned by Pacific Golf Club, with the golf course and remaining green space to be preserved for many years to come.
The project also includes a number of new or improved Club facilities:
Brand new Clubhouse including a restaurant, café, bars and gaming room
Putt putt course
Virtual reality indoor golf facility
New practice facilities
Upgrades to the par three course
New driving range
