LITTLE EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP — The company that owns Renault Winery announced Tuesday that it has acquired the former Sea Oaks Golf Resort in a deal valued at more than $6.5 million.
Golf is set to resume at the renowned LBI National Golf & Resort, a public course, in June. The establishment has been closed since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. The hostel, restaurants and other property amenities will reopen after the renovations, Accountable Equity said in a press release.
Reopening the golf course will bring 25 to 50 jobs to Ocean County, with the potential to create an additional 175 jobs by next year, the company said.
“We are thrilled to have Sea Oaks Golf Resort as part of the Vivamee Signature Collection,” said Josh McCallen, Founder and CEO of Accountable Equity. “We believe our blend of hospitality culture and development expertise places us in a unique position to deliver huge long-term dividends to Sea Oaks in the years to come as we grow.”

The property consists of an inn with 31 rooms and suites, a 35,000 square foot country club, banquet space, two restaurants, three bars, an outdoor dining area, as well as an 18-hole championship golf course and driving range with nighttime views of the Atlantic City Skyline.
Barbara Balongue of Balongue Design Inc. was tasked with leading a $4.5 million renovation, including upgrades to guest rooms, entertainment areas, bars and restaurants.
The revived LBI National will focus on its 194-acre golf course, weddings and unique events, Accountable Equity said.
“Today’s customer desires exceptional destinations and authentic hospitality. It’s not just about operating hotels. It’s an intimately human service that cherishes the souls of the guests and the team we trust to serve them, all of which are essential to achieving our goals,” said McCallen.
In addition to Renault and LBI National, Accountable Equity owns Kent Island Resort in Stevensville, Maryland. It acquired Renault, in Egg Harbor City, in 2018.
