Tony Stewart from Rainbow Beach Commerce and Tourism reported further advice from the Department of Natural Resources, that there were no expressions of interest in the Rainbow Beach Resort Golf Course.
It is now listed with a Gympie agency. The vacant premium freehold lot is 3.192 hectares (7.88 acres) – was “previously developed as a temporary 9-hole golf course, now being sold on an ‘As is’ basis”. Tony said it was zoned for six storeys.
The fairways on the 9 hole par 3 course at Rainbow Shores, are not as lush, and the tees and greens are now bare, and the location is still exceptional.
Locals have written in the Community News, still sad that Rainbow Beach has lost its golf course amenity, which was well renowned for many years, and equally as well patronised, requesting that the new state government make the land available to the community, probably through Council and perhaps the Community Centre, and the golf could be restored to the prime attraction it used to be.
