Opening as LBI National Golf & Resort in June 2022, in time for summer season as a public course, a future plan for a hotel, restaurants plus wedding and event venues will be announced soon. The golf course reopening will bring back 25-50 jobs to Ocean County and has the potential to create an additional 175 positions in the county by next year.
“We’re excited at the prospect of Sea Oaks Golf Resort becoming part of the VIVÂMEE Signature Collection,” said Josh McCallen, Accountable Equity Founder and CEO. “We believe our blend of hospitality culture and development expertise puts us in a unique position to provide tremendous long-term dividends for Sea Oaks in the years to come as we grow.”
The property consists of an Inn with 31 rooms and suites, 35,000 sq ft country club, banquet space, two restaurants, three bars, outdoor dining space, plus an 18-hole championship golf course and driving range with skyline night-time views of Atlantic City.
Barbara Balongue of Balongue Design Inc. has been commissioned to lead a $4.5M resort rebrand, beginning immediately, including upgrades to guest rooms, entertainment spaces, bars and restaurants.
As a VIVÂMEE Signature Collection resort, the LBI National Golf & Resort revival vision will focus on the prestigious 194-acre golf course, bespoke weddings and unique events. Golfers looking to hit the links will also benefit from investment in property, and return of the expert practice facility, driving range, practice bunker and putting green. LBI National is located one-hour from Philadelphia, 30 minutes from Atlantic City and is less than 20-minutes from Long Beach Island, ideal as a drive to or city escape vacation.
“Today’s guest yearns for exceptional destinations and authentic hospitality. It’s more than just operating hotels. It’s an intimately human service cherishing the souls of guests, and the team we trust to serve them, all of which are key to achieving our goals,” added McCallen.
Accountable Equity, owners of Renault Winery Resort, in Egg Harbour City, NJ, and Kent Island Resort, Stevensville, MD, have seen record year-on-year growth in the last year.  As a leading private resort development company with 200-plus employees, Accountable Equity has led two multi-million-dollar investment programs in two VIVÂMEE Signature Collection resorts; continuing to transform them and is delivering new levels of exciting experience-focussed resorts.
