Who We Are?
ABOUT THE CAUSE
Not only is North Lakes golf course one of the most beautiful and challenging golf courses in the Brisbane region, it is the focal point of a thriving community that boasts a population of over 25,000 residents.
The course is beautifully manicured and provides luscious green space in an urban area where there are several smaller green spaces but nothing on the level of the North Lakes golf course.
North Lakes is an award winning, master planned suburb and community build around the beautiful Lake Eden and the North Lakes golf course. Lake Eden is often described as the heart of North Lakes, and North Lakes golf course is described as the soul. Both are critically important to the survival of our community and maintenance of our residents’ quality of life. Both significantly contribute to the unique aesthetic balance envisioned by the master planners in creating our suburb. Both are picturesque fundamental features that ought to be permanently protected for the benefit and enjoyment of the entire community, now and into the future.
The golf course is also home to dozens of native animal species and provides the last opportunity for many birds and animals to live amongst the community in a natural green habitat. Kangaroos, koalas, possums, echidnas, and reportedly even platypus, along with many other species of animals. These vulnerable animals rely on the golf course and its beautiful waterways, trees, shrubs and bushes as their last habitat, and last chance to survive in suburbia and live a happy and peaceful life.
There are a multitude of viable options available instead of selling off the land to developers; options that would see the golf course maintained for the benefit of the community, now and into the future. Golf Australia and the Professional Golfers Association (PGA) of Australia have endorsed the SNLGC campaign and reiterated the massive potential that exists for our golf course to thrive. Firstly we just need to oppose and defeat the closure and redevelopment plans – we need your help to make our voices heard.
