Seaview changes management
Monday, April 27, 2009
Seaview Resort, the historic Galloway, N.J., golf getaway, is changing management.
Dolce Hotels and Resorts is taking over management of the resort, located near Atlantic City. Troon Golf has been retained to manage the golf operations. That includes the Bay Course, a Hugh Wilson-Donald Ross design, and the Pines Course, designed by Howard Toomey and William Flynn.
The management change will take effect May 8.
Seaview, which had been managed since 1984 by Marriott International under the name Seaview Marriott, is owned by LaSalle Hotel Properties. LaSalle is a real estate investment trust that owns 31 hotels and resorts with approximately 8,500 rooms.
Initially founded as a country club in 1912, Seaview grew into a 297-room hotel with 27,000-square-feet of conference space, a spa and two courses on 300 acres.
Seaview’s Bay Course, which used to be a regular tour stop for the LPGA, underwent renovations in 1998 and 2006 to restore the course to its original design. Its sister course, the Pines, opened as a nine-holer in 1929 and was expanded to 18 holes by William Gordon in 1957.
Dolce Hotels, founded in 1981, operates 24 properties in the United States, Canada and Europe. It is headquartered in Montvale, N.J., and Paris.
