With the build moving along at a quick pace, it’s nice to see that the golf course and Stonecutters Ridge is moving along just as fast. Homes all around the development are flying up, and available land has become scarce! Here’s a few updates I’ve come across over the past few weeks that may be of interest!
1. New signs have gone up around the neighbourhood, officially advertising the opening of all 18 holes of the golf course in “Early 2011″. Whether that’s February, March, or beyond is still up in the air, but what we do know is that all 18 holes will be finished being shaped/built by October, and the development will be using the summer months to let the fairways/greens/tee boxes grow in appropriately.
2. The first six holes (2-7) are all but finished, and will be opening in two months time. While play will be limited to residents of Stonecutters Ridge only, it will at least allow me to improve my game a bit – before the surround golf guru’s kick me off the course for being a terrible golfer.
3. We spoke to Mark in the sales office last weekend and it looks like the old RAAF Station Schofields across Eastern Creek has been zoned for commercial redevelopment, and a new shopping centre, similar to the Rouse Hill Town Centre is on the books. While it is in the early planning stages, it looks to have gotten the go-ahead from Blacktown Council. It won’t be as big as Rouse Hill Town Centre, but it will surely help assist the substantial growth and gentrification that the North West area is undergoing.
4. Lots have become quite scarce, with around 10 lots left in the existing releases. The sales office estimates that the next release (lots behind the Lily Pilly release), will be released in just a matter of weeks!
So that’s what’s happening in our neck of the woods. Hope everyone’s build is going smoothly, and those that are looking forward to golfing at Stonecutters Ridge – it’s not long off!
See you on the course!
