Construction on a new, 18-hole, championship golf course designed by Phil Scott, father of Australian golf star Adam Scott, is set to get underway in April as part of a multi-million dollar environmental restoration project at Whitsunday Shores Estates in the town of Bowen in Queensland.

The 85-hectare course will be built in nine-hole phases, with completion of the first phase anticipated by the end of 2009. The course will be the centerpiece of a community country club that will also feature a licensed clubhouse.

The restoration project at Whitsunday Shores also calls fordevelopment of a $2 million, 18-hectare eco-park featuring a man-made lake. Construction of the new park began late in 2008.

At build out, Whitsunday Shores will have more than 1,000 residential lots and a retail precinct.
