The Lifestyle: A Summary


For every golf enthusiast, there’s the occasional player and those that have never swung a club. Golfing aside, what unites the residents of Hope Island is the love of the outdoors, stunning landscapes and prestige homes. Wide-open spaces, greenery and water features attract a wide and consistent variety of native species, from troops of kangaroos to flocks of parrots and birds of prey. Between the luxury of the Sanctuary Cove Golf and Country Club and the Links Hope Island Resort Golf Club, there is a marina to take in, fine food and shopping, and every type of event in between. More than a game on the greens, it is the associated community that residents enjoy every day. And whether you play or not, you will need a golf cart to ferry you easily between all these locations – and that’s why Hope Island is known for its signature Golf Buggy Lifestyle!
