stockton buys seaview

Stockton University sold Seaview Hotel & Golf Club to a Florida company in July for $21.07 million.

GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP — Employees at the Seaview Hotel and Golf Club are facing layoffs this November.

According to the state Department of Labor website, 229 employees were notified through the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, or WARN. Under WARN, employers must provide 60 days’ notice of mass layoffs.

The layoffs will take effect Nov. 26, according to the site.

Spokespeople for the century-old golf resort and hotel did not return requests for comment Saturday.

The property is currently owned by KDG Capital LLC, a Florida company that bought the resort for $21 million in July from Stockton University. The college’s board of trustees approved the sale in early April.

Seaview General Manager Bob Nelson said at the time of the sale that the new ownership planned to renovate rooms and public spaces at the property. The resort hosts the ShopRite LPGA Classic golf tournament.

Stockton had owned the hotel and bay golf course since 2010, when the university purchased it for $20 million as additional housing and academic space, and leased out commercial operations on the property.
