Merewether Golf Club (MGC) - long seen as one of Newcastle’s premier golf clubs - is set to develop 148 modern apartments as part of a specialised senior living precinct in a joint venture with renowned developer Thirdi Group. 

In addition to the apartments, the $188m project will also include self-care seniors living units and a wellness centre housed within a multi-storey tower.

A new clubhouse will also be constructed, featuring a restaurant, sports bar, pro shop and conference centre. Luke Berry, Director of Thirdi Group is confident that MGC members will snap up half of the available apartments saying “the level of engagement during pre-launch is unprecedented - there is nothing like this in Merewether. They [prospective purchasers] might buy them all before non-members get a chance to even review floor plans.

MGC members will have early access to purchase the apartments as part of an exclusive series of DA development updates and launch weekend later this year after the project secures DA approval. 


The project team has worked hard to design a development that will maximise the site’s potential while being respectful to surrounding viewpoints. 

Robert Huxley, Co-Founder & Director of Acquisitions of Thirdi Group, is looking forward to what this development will add to the location and surrounding community. He explains, “We now look forward to working with Newcastle City Council… [to] deliver on our promise to create one of the best Golf Clubs and Seniors Living precincts ever seen in the Newcastle and Hunter region.”

“Not only will this development help secure the club’s future, it also paves the way for significant investment to take place in the course infrastructure and facilities,” comments Aaron Spalding, MGC board member. 

In addition to securing the club’s financial future, this project will also deliver a range of modern facilities and amenities. These will serve the club for decades and add significant value to the club, its members and their families.

Luke adds, “these are the sorts of developments our community needs in a COVID-19 recovery, providing jobs during construction and importantly providing housing for those that have been identified as our most vulnerable during the crisis.”
