Planning for a luxury, 148-hectare golf estate near Walvis Bay is already in an advanced stage and project implementation is scheduled to start this year.

The President's Links Estate will apparently be built next to the Dorob National Park, near Walvis Bay, and will include about 745 luxury residential units.

The golf course will be built among Namibia's distinctive dunes, according to the website.

The specific location was chosen by world-renowned golf course designer Peter Matkovich and his partner, renowned golfer and winner of the Open Championship, Louis Oosthuizen.

"We hope that the course and surroundings will attract the Sunshine golf tour back to Namibia and may even attract a European tour event," reads the information on their website.

It will apparently be one of only three other courses in the world located between dunes.

The size of residential units in the estate will range from 184 to 390 square metres and prices range from N$3.9 million to N$8.5 million.The developers plan to build pet-friendly parks, a sports education centre, restaurants, coffee shops, a clubhouse, gym, bowling alley, swimming pool, tennis courts, running and cycling lanes and a cinema. RETIREMENT RESORT Retirement units will also be built in the estate.The 115 m² retirement units will be located on a property of your choice. The property will have two bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, a spacious living area and kitchen / scullery, and a single garage, garden and fireplace. Prices start at N$2.4 million, reads the website.Two larger units are also available that have a double garage and some even have a view of the golf course. ECO-FRIENDLY, BUT MODERNAccording to the website, the President's Links fully complies with the International Finance Corporation's Edge (Excellence in Design for Greater Efficiencies) certification system."Edge certification gives owners the assurance that their homes are built to be resource efficient by focusing on energy and water saving initiatives, as well as ensuring the maximum use of raw materials in their most natural state,” said the director, Andrew van Schalkwyk.The President's Links will apparently use electrocoagulation technology to convert effluent water (from the Walvis Bay Municipality) into an odourless source of irrigation water for irrigation of the golf course."The municipality has granted three million litres of water per day to the estate, which is currently not suitable for human consumption and cannot be purified into potable water. All water that is not used on the estate will then be sent back to the municipality for use in the surrounding community,” said Van Schalkwyk.Investing in this eco-friendly, sustainable, yet modern and sophisticated estate includes a free golf club membership."Anyone who invests in President's Links will automatically contribute to The Living Desert Fund where 5-7% of every home sold goes into this sustainability fund, which will enable community development initiatives as well as the maintenance of the golf course and clubhouse," Van Schalkwyk [email protected]
