Lakowe Lakes Golf and Country Estate is designed as an exclusive, secure and serene haven located some 25 minutes outside the bustling business centre of Lagos.
Home owners will enjoy the security and freedom that a gated community brings, as well as the luxury of living on a pristine 18-hole golf course, complete with clubhouse.
Choose to stay, and play at Lakowe Lakes Golf and Country Estate, and you’ll also enjoy sports facilities such as a swimming pool, squash, tennis and badminton courts.
The Lakowe Lakes development occupies a land area of roughly 308 hectares, and overlooks a 55 hectare man-made lake.
Its prime position on the thriving and fast developing Lekki-Epe axis guarantees occupants easy access to other neighbourhoods, and to the city, taking advantage of the upgrade and expansion of the Lekki-Epe Expressway.
Lakowe Lakes golf and country estate forms part of the larger “Lagos New Town” development project, which has been planned as a fully integrated, self sustaining municipality that will incorporate first class infrastructure.
This new town has been modelled after other globally successful urban redevelopment projects.[tab: New Town Project]
The “Lagos New Town” development comprises six phases of projects planned to house a population of approximately 225,000. Lakowe Lakes forms the second phase of this development.
Situated between the Lekki-Epe dual carriageway and the Atlantic Ocean coast, the sites’ prime position ensures that the development, and in turn Lakowe Lakes, benefits from the Lekki-Epe modern transport network; which includes the newly planned toll Expressway, and introduction of a light rail system in the near future to create an improved transport system.
This means that residents are able to take full advantage of an easy transport system that provides them full access to the city, as well as surrounding neighbourhood.
Lagos New Town has been planned as a fully integrated, self-sustaining exclusive lifestyle development that will contain a mix of land uses. These have been selected to provide an optimal modern “Live, Work, Play” environment for the town’s residents, guests and tenants.
The residences have been designed for homeowners to enjoy the full splendour of the golf course and lakes. Three types of plots are available to future residents, and these have been designed to suit varying tastes, and of course, budgets. These plots include 375, 500 and 1,000sqm options.
A total of 1,124 plots will be available for purchase. This will allow for a total of 1,425 dwellings.
Lakowe Lakes offers a variety of house types for a more unique and personal experience[tab: Golf Course]
Designed by PGA Professional and golf course architect, Robert O’Friel, the golf course at Lakowe Lakes will set new international standards for golf courses in West Africa.
The golf course, which will open to golf lovers in June 2011, will take full advantage of the unspoiled surrounding coastal forest and blend the excitement of the fairways with the beauty of this natural ecosystem to form a harmonious balance for golfers and residents.
This also means it will remain protected and secluded from the coast as well as the adjacent residential estate.
The course itself measures 92 hectares and includes multiple tees, generously wide fairways, bunkers and greens to suit all levels and skills of golfers.
As a regulation golf course with an overall par rating of 72, the course consists of two returning loops of 9 holes each – 2 par 5s, 2 par 3s and 5 par 4s.
Other great golfing benefits will include a golf academy, 9-hole par-3 course, driving range and dedicated practice facility, and a clubhouse with function facilities.
Due to the world-class standards of the Lakowe Lakes golf course, not only will it satisfy golfers of various handicaps, it is also expected to attract the attention of professional and amateur tournaments, thereby creating exciting golfing action.[tab: Location] Getting to Lakowe Lakes
