  LITTLE EGG HARBOR – The former Sea Oaks Golf Resort has been purchased by Renault Winery Resort owners (Accountable Equity) and will reopen as the LBI National Golf and Resort. 

  The $6.5 million transaction will bring this abandoned resort a new life and new jobs to the area. The 200-acre golf resort has been closed since the start of the pandemic and is now set to relaunch for the 2022 summer season.

  The LBI National Golf & Resort is slated to open in June as a public course, with future plans for a hotel, restaurants as well as wedding and event venues will be announced soon. Reopening the golf course will bring back between 25 to 50 jobs to Ocean County, and has the potential to create an additional 175 positions in the county by next year, Accountable Equity said.

  “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 has 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.

  A $4.5 million resort renovation is underway commissioned by Barbara Balongue of Balongue Design Inc.

  “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.
