Major renovations are underway at The Shore Club in Cape May Court House that owners say will revitalize the private golf club into something a whole family can enjoy.

The club, which opened in 1916 and formerly known as the Wildwood Golf & Country Club, is being renovated in phases, according to a statement from Suzy Abrams Jones, a public relations official working with The Shore Club.

The first phase includes refurbishment of the clubhouse lobby and the Grand Ballroom. The new lobby will have new paint, furniture, and wainscoting. The ballroom will have new chandeliers, champagne-colored Chiavari chairs, crown-molding with L.E.D cove lighting, fresh paint, wainscoting, and a new bar.

“The new Shore Club aims to give couples that memorable special event experience at a great value,” Amanda Ruhl, The Shore Club’s Director of Marketing & Events, said in a statement.

Another phase of the renovations includes restoration of the bunkers on the golf course. Construction on the course is ongoing this week.

The course has a celebrated history and hosted famous professional golfers such as Arnold Palmer, according to previous press reports.

When the renovations are completed later this spring, the club will begin to offer expanded golf programs, social events, and memberships for children.

The new programs will be directed by PGA Director of Golf Fred Riedel, according to the statement.

“By including children and grandchildren with all Full and Intermediate Memberships, we have set the stage for our already great family environment to go off the charts,” Riedel said in a statement. “It’s a very exciting time at The Shore Club, and we are looking forward to an amazing season.”
