On Saturday, March 23, the Sanctuary Cove Country Club will throw open its doors for an exclusive Open Day event, letting the public see exactly what they’ve got to offer with a day of fun and fitness in the sun.

Visitors will be treated to a taste of the Country Club’s unique gym experience, with activities including an outdoor yoga session overlooking the picturesque Palms Golf Course, spin cycle on the verandah and a host of other classes to try throughout the morning.

The haven crew had a sneak peak, along with a cheeky midweek yoga session on the greens at the Country Club. This is a hidden gem, with sweeping views of the golf course and real dose of nature with the comforts of a luxury club surrounding you. It’s the spot to rock your active wear all day! We reckon it’s a super midpoint to catch up with your Brissy friends, even take advantage of the morning kids club session and enjoy some adult conversation over eats at Arnie’s, their onsite cafe and bar.

Go on and check out their Open Day, giving locals a rare chance to experience first-hand the full suite of offerings available at the Country Club, which includes world-class facilities and services like the four air-conditioned training rooms, the diverse group fitness timetable, a heated pool, spas and saunas, specialised treatment rooms and child-minding services.

Guests will be able to take a tour of the premium gym facilities, and do a meet and greet with the Country Club’s personal trainers, fitness instructors, tennis and swimming experts, massage therapists and beauticians. Backed by a team of world-class trainers and rehabilitation professionals, there is always a team member on hand at the Country Club to offer expert advice and ongoing support to ensure you achieve your health, fitness and wellness goals, and visitors will get a taste of this exceptional service at the Open Day.

“There will also be free body scans available on the day so you can see how you measure up,” says Ryan Fishburn, Sanctuary Cove Country Club operations manager. “If you’re a regular gym-goer or looking to start your fitness journey, the Sanctuary Cove Country Club has something for everyone and for all fitness levels.”

92.5 Gold FM will be broadcasting live from the Country Club from 9am, with prizes up for grabs throughout the morning, and Arnie’s Café and Bar, which located at the Country Club, will also launch a new menu.

“If you haven’t visited the Sanctuary Cove Country Club, now’s your chance to experience everything it has to offer,” says Ryan. “We can’t wait to showcase our unique gym to the community at Open Day.”

The Open Day will take place on Saturday 23 March 2019 from 8am ‘til 12pm at the Sanctuary Cove Country Club, Gleneagles Drive, Sanctuary Cove, with free parking available on-site.


If you’re keen to take on a new challenge, you will be able to sign up to ‘8 Weeks to Health and Happiness’ at the Country Club Open Day – a new lifestyle challenge providing a holistic approach to living healthier and happier.

The challenge doesn’t just offer the chance to change your life for the better – there is also a grand prize of a luxurious trip for two to the spectacular island retreat of Hayman® Island by InterContinental on offer for the winner of the challenge.

“During the eight-week program, participants will have access to a range of fitness classes, weekly health talks from experts, food plans and recipes,” said Mr Fishburn. “We’ll be holding our usual classes as well as additional cardio and yoga classes, including sessions on the sand at the InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort Lagoon Beach Pool.”

Ryan says the program aims to go beyond the standard weight-loss challenge and provide a holistic approach to living a healthier and happier lifestyle, with tennis lessons and swimming sessions in the Country Club’s 25 metre pool also on offer.

Rounding out the program will be food plans and health tips, recipes from Arnie’s Café and Bar and weekly expert health talks to keep participants inspired and informed. There will be a number of spot prizes throughout the eight weeks to keep you motivated as well as, of course, the grand prize to Hayman Island for whoever achieves the greatest weight loss by percentage.

The prize includes flights, island transfers and three nights’ accommodation on the island for the winner and a friend.
