Sandhurst - Melbourne



Sandhurst is one of the most exclusive suburbs for golfing in Victoria as well as being home to the PGA of Australia. Sandhurst is in the south-east of Melbourne CBD, approximately 35 kilometres from Melbourne's CBD. Access to major regional centres such as Bayside, Frankston, Mornington Peninsula or Narre Warren should only take ten minutes.
The beach and boating facilities of Patterson Lakes and Carrum are only 5 minutes away, at the end of Thompsons Road. The local area is well serviced with a range of family and community facilities including public and private schools, shopping centres and medical services.
Sandhurst was originally part of Carrum Downs, however, like most new suburbs in Victoria, once a development has taken off they create a new suburb.
 



The Sandhurst Development
Sandhurst Club is unlike any other residential development in Australia. Apart the impressive array of club facilities and services you'd expect from such a quality project Sandhurst Club also boasts some truly special and unique features. Residents become an actual member of The Club entitling them to have an active involvement in the future of their community. A cutting edge communication network incorporating security system for all homes provides peace of mind and real benefits to residents that are simply not available in other suburbs. Best practice environmental initiatives add to the physical appearance of the estate and the standard of living of all residents. Then there's the ClubLINKS concierge programme which offers a standard of service that will make you feel like your living in a holiday resort all year round.

ClubLINKS Concierge Services
As a resident your unique ClubLINKS card entitles you to all the benefits of ClubLINKS providing a range of member services with convenience and choice. Like a concierge in your pocket your ClubLINKS card allows you to book recreational facilities and 'to your door' services, gardening, cleaning, pet minding and other domestic services as well as allowing you to golf or dine at other high quality clubs nearby or far. There's no need for cash, just put it on your ClubLINKS card. Specially negotiated prices for all services including home insurance and selected retailers also means you'll get the best deal around.
 


Home of PGA
In a historic and unprecedented move, The PGA of Australia relocated its national headquarters to Sandhurst Club in 2006. This includes the PGA’s Centre of Excellence Golf Learning Centre and its PGA Junior Development Program with established world leading teaching and training facilities that will promote tomorrow’s champions as well as those new to the game.
Sandhurst Club members will also benefit from the expertise that the PGA brings to the game of golf. The decision to call Sandhurst Club home reinforces the quality and reputation of Sandhurst Club – a venue the PGA is proud to be associated with.
Along with the superb facilities and two championship standard courses having the PGA permanently based at Sandhurst Club will ensure that this is one of the premier golfing venues in Australia.


Facilities
Sooner or later in life, our decisions are guided by quality of lifestyle.
Unprecedented in Melbourne, the concept of club living at Sandhurst is all about creating a better lifestyle for its members. It also takes the idea of community to a whole new level. All at once providing a sense of escape, and a sense of belonging.
As well as the Clubhouse with its bars, licensed restaurant and members lounge, Sandhurst Club has a Health Club with a pool, aerobics room, gymnasium and Tennis courts.
The commercial precinct also provides cafes, community services and possibly serviced accommodation and convention facilities. Not to mention the national headquarters of the PGA of Australia and its impressive golf facilities including golf retail shops are located at Sandhurst.


Security
Although there is not a high crime rate in Carrum Downs or the surrounding areas, we all know that people feel more relaxed knowing that there is security on site.  We understand that the wellbeing of your family and the security of your property are some of the most important factors dictating where you make your home. That’s why at Sandhurst Club we’ve developed a state of the art security system throughout the estate. Best of all you would hardly know it exists unless you need to use it.
Your peace of mind is assured with a clever mix of human and electronic security. Security monitoring 24 hours a day provides assistance and monitors activities in the estate and within every home. Discrete technology such as closed circuit TV also protects club premises and property.
Resident Members
Every property owner is a Resident Member of Sandhurst Club. This entitles them to a wide range of benefits and privileges that serve to protect and improve, over time, the physical amenity and standard of living of owners and residents. The objectives of the Club are to:
1. deliver cost of living savings to owners and residents
2. establish an advanced e-community
3. highlight public recognition and awareness of Sandhurst Club
4. optimise utilisation of facilities
5. develop financial self-reliance.



Cutting Edge Communications
As a resident of Sandhurst Club you will be the first to benefit from Australia's first private residential optical fibre network, placing the development at the cutting edge of communication technology. Provided by ClubLINKS Utilities the communication network has up to 100 times the capacity of existing telephony infrastructure and is 25 times faster than cable connections.
With faster communications and more capacity than existing commercial infrastructures residents will benefit from lower costs and the potential for future access to services such as movies screened direct to their home, bill payment, security monitoring, home office and free-to-air TV.
Our IP Telephony services, delivered via IP Systems private network, offers state-of-the-art telephony services for residents. Those Residents working from home have an unheard of flexibility thanks to ClubLINKS Utilities' Telephony. Cheap calls and discounted rentals provide estimated household telephony savings of 18%.


Recreation Paths
A unique characteristic of Sandhurst Club is the extensive network of off road recreation paths that weave throughout the estate. Most houses have direct access at the rear of their property to a pathway that allows them walking, cycling or golf cart access to the village precinct and most areas of the estate. You and your children will be able to move around freely in a beautifully landscaped environment safely removed from vehicle traffic.
