Most-viewed: Investors swing for South Australian golf resort
A golf resort and country club on the South Australian coast is proving a hit with investors, with scores of potential buyers eyeing the property and hoping to be nearest the pin.
The McCracken Country Club was the most-viewed property on realcommercial.com.au over the past week, with opportunities to secure a golf course extremely rare on the commercial market.
The resort, an hour south of Adelaide, features more than 55ha of coastal land that is home to an 18-hole championship golf course, 66 hotel, apartment and villa-style accommodation rooms, a 150-seat restaurant, bottle shop and commercial kitchen.
It also includes the Victor Harbor Convention Centre, which has capacity for 300.
The facility is understood to have an annual turnover of more $6 million, with the chance to grow the offering with further developments.
Expressions of interest to purchase the Country Club close on July 27.
The river of interest in the South Australian listing is a positive sign for the tourism and leisure market, which REA Group chief economist Nerida Conisbee is showing signs of distress as COVID-19 continues.
“Distressed listings do seem to be rising a little bit. It’s not off the charts, but the number of distressed listings in hotels went from one in the June quarter last year, to five over the same period this year,” Conisbee says.
“I thought that was quite telling in terms of some potential issues.”
