Bulk earthworks on the excavation of the dam next to the ninth hole are due to be completed by the end of this week.
McPhee said once excavation works were complete, civil works would then commence on stage two housing.
“That dam had to be widened and deepened and a lot of the soil that has come out of there has been re-used on the site as well,” McPhee said.
“The idea of the widening and deepening of the dam was to not only create a feature for the housing lots, but to also retain any stormwater from the sub-divisions to be re-used on the course.”
McPhee said it was hoped civil works would be completed by March next year, which will then allow for housing construction to begin, with 21 of the 26 lots in stage two already sold.
McPhee said the star of golf works for stage three are also underway, which includes the existing eighth hole eventually becoming a par 5 and a new ninth tee.
“Once we build the new ninth green, the second shot will be a little bit more difficult because you’ll have to carry the water a little bit,” he said.
McPhee said the first part of stage three golf is scheduled to start in spring.
