!THE GYMPIE GOLF RETREAT WAS BUILT BY ONE OF GYMPIE'S ALL TIME GREATEST BUILDERS.

history

The ultra modern home is as good as new in every way. Kitchens, family rooms and all walk areas have beautiful timber floors. It is only 100m from the Golf Club and is ideal for groups of golfers on tour. They can all stay together within walking distance of the course, but with the privacy of their own home. While the rooms are private, they can easily access the common area, making it their perfect retreat for golfing groups.

Noel & Lyn Busk bought the house in 2004 with the idea to share it with fellow golfing groups, but it has grown to beyond golf, and is more about family and working groups who are looking for a nice home away from home. Gympie Golf Retreat has attracted guests from all over the world, and been occupied by celebrities and golfers alike when visiting Gympie for Events. There are always lovely local managers at the Retreat, as we live far away ourselves, and we feel we contribute to the local Gympie economy in many ways, through employment, good and services, and to tourism as well.

BUILDER HANGS UP HANGER AFTER 55 YEARS

A man synonymous with home building in the Cooloola area, Dave English, finished work after 55 years of home building. Mr English, 77, retired home to McIntosh Creek Road, to spend time with wife Gladys and concentrate on growing orchids, a passion of his for about half a century.

Mr English started out as a builder in his own right on his return from WW2. He had completed his apprenticeship with his father John, a builder, before war service.On return, he and older brothers Frederick and Victor, also carpenters, were taken into the business by their father and the second generation of the company started in 1945. The name English will not be lost to the building industry with Dave’s sons Lawrence and David having entered the industry, both now working for themselves. Mr English’s sons are just two of the apprentices he has trained. More than 25 others have also done their time with him during his 55 years as an employer. And the house to go out on was an achievement for Dave English as well. Built on Shield Street for Gary and Rosie Boshammer, with Mr English saying “It is probably the biggest home I’ve ever built and possibly the most unusual”, he said. “Rosie saw the style in a magazine and adapted it to suit the site and the family’s needs. It took the truss designers about three weeks to work and design the roof structure. The home is built out of heritage sandstone block and is on two levels with the floor area covering 53 squares.”

”Heritage sandstone is a terrific product and the strongest home you can build is cement block. You will never move it, the core is filled down and locks the building together as are the head beam. A block home is almost impossible to destroy”. Mr English estimates he had built more than 2000 homes in his time in the industry in Gympie, the Mary Valley, Sunshine Coast and Brisbane.”It is a creative industry, most homes are the peoples’ dreams, often the biggest dream and investment people have in life. I just helped people find that dream in a great house.”
