The magnificent $10 million country club at Toowoomba Pinnacle wins a prestigious Master Builders Award
From an innovative housing park in Victoria to opulent and decadent multi-million-dollar clubhouses and award-winning architecturally designed homes in the over 50’s lifestyle sector, Palm Lake Resort continually raises the benchmark over 40 successful years in business.
Winning the 2018 Best Sporting Facility award at last week’s Master Builders Awards confirms the quality and commitment that Palm Lake Resort have achieved with their stunning Toowoomba Pinnacle resort.
Each new decade of retirees expects more quality and lives more active lifestyles, creating seismic shifts in the way people retire. The quaint retirement villages of the 80s bear almost no resemblance to the luxurious resorts of today. Through all this, Palm Lake Group’s continual success shows business thinking that is willing to evolve to new ways of living.
Scott Elliott remembers mowing the lawns at Palm Lake Resort Willow Lodge as a teenager back in the 1970s, and clocking laps on his beloved motorbike – to the (understandable) dismay of neighbours. Nowadays he has refocused his energy into exciting new projects as managing director alongside his father and founder, Walter Elliott.
“The Country Club and our display village showcase an architecturally elegant lifestyle that raises the benchmark in Toowoomba,” according to Sue Baldwin, Palm Lake Resort general manager of sales, “creating a definite buzz and drawing visitors from many regional towns.
“The homes and resort are honestly breathtaking.”
Toowoomba Pinnacle’s energy-efficient home designs offer exquisite open-plan living with raked ceilings to maximise natural light, space and comfort. Caesarstone benchtops, Smeg appliances and other luxury fitting and finishes add to the grandeur and come as standard.
Toowoomba Regional Council mayor Paul Antonio described the Pinnacle Country Club as “perhaps one of Queensland’s most spectacular” when he officially opened it last year.
Some of the additional new class-leading facilities include a wine cellar, 60-seat cinema, ten pin bowling alley, eight rink undercover lawn bowls green, Milon gym, heated indoor pool and an outdoor infinity pool.
“We truly love what we build,” Sue revealed. “Winning Master Builders Awards means we are recognised by our industry peers for our quality, craftsmanship and bold choices to lift the level of prestige and luxury in over-50s lifestyle resorts.”
