Stronghold Investment Management has acquired the Cardinia Club, a freehold investment in Melbourne’s Pakenham. 

Stronghold purchased the property as a trustee for the Stronghold Hospitality Property Trust No.15, a Brisbane based fund manager with several freehold investments in the hospitality industry. 

The Cardinia Club has 105 EGM’s, a large bistro, upmarket sports bar and multiple function rooms. 

The venue was originally part of the Pakenham Racecourse before the Pakenham Racing Club moved its operations to a new racing facility at Tynong North. 

CBRE Hotels negotiated the sale on behalf of the Pakenham Racing Club with a new 13-year lease to Pakenham Racing Club.

Stronghold is projecting an initial cash return of 7.5% per annum for its wholesale investors.

“This gaming investment generated a significant level of interest from the market, but it took an informed investor like Stronghold to recognise the strength of this opportunity with Pakenham Racing Club as its tenant,” Callow said. 

Steve de Nys, Head of Property at Stronghold, commented the club established in 1875, had 160 employees and three venues.
