Heritage Golf Group Acquires Stanton Ridge Country Club
NEWARK, NJ – March 23, 2021 – Heritage Golf Group announced the purchase of Stanton Ridge Golf & Country Club, located in growing Hunterdon County, New Jersey with proximity to both Newark, NJ and New York, NY. Stanton Ridge Golf and Country Club is the eleventh property to join the Heritage Golf Group portfolio and their second club in New Jersey following the December 2020 purchase of Shackamaxon Country Club in Scotch Plains, New Jersey.
“With its location in a growing family oriented suburban market and an outstanding golf course, clubhouse, and residential community, Stanton Ridge Golf & Country Club is a welcome addition to our expanding portfolio of clubs. This club represents our third acquisition in the New York and New Jersey metropolitan area over the past three months,” said Mark Burnett, Heritage Golf Group’s CEO and President. Other prominent private clubs acquired by Heritage include: Shackamaxon Country Club and Knollwood Country Club in Westchester County, NY all in great locations to the New York and Newark metropolitan markets.
The 18-hole championship golf course was designed by Stephen Kay and has developed a strong reputation as one of the best private courses to play in the area. Members enjoy other amenities such as a swimming pool and tennis court complex as well as a clubhouse with dining alternatives and spectacular views. The club’s expansive banquet area and outdoor wedding venue is designed to create memorable personal and charitable events.
Heritage will be working with the members to activate a diverse Board of Advisors and Member Committees to provide advice and counsel on operating enhancements and renovation investment. Heritage is reviewing/considering upgrade projects such as targeted golf course improvements and new expanded outdoor dining and lounge space with fire features, soft seating, and new Member driven menus.
This rapidly developing network of Heritage Clubs within the New York and New Jersey golf association population coupled with Heritage’s owned properties on Hilton Head Island, Tampa, Sarasota, Chicago, Milwaukee, and Richmond, Virginia, are forming an enticing and unique reciprocity benefit for Heritage Golf Members.
