The 113-year-old Muskegon, Mich. club has been acquired by the RedWater Collection, which also owns and operates several other courses and restaurants across the state. RedWater plans to rebrand the SE4SONS Gastropub and open to members and the public in the summer of 2021.
The historic Muskegon (Mich.) Country Club is set to be acquired and operated by the RedWater Collection, a West Michigan ownership group of golf clubs and restaurants, MLive.com reported. Formerly known as Watermark Properties, RedWater signed a purchase agreement to buy 113-year-old country club, an April 12 news release stated.
The Muskegon Country Club features an 18-hole course on 130 acres of dunes between Lake Michigan and Muskegon Lake, MLive.com reported. The sale includes a restaurant on site that shuttered last year due to COVID-19. RedWater plans to rebrand the SE4SONS Gastropub and open to members and the public in the summer of 2021.
Existing Muskegon Country Club staff will be rehired, RedWater said in the news release.
The club operated as non-profit owned by its membership before being sold to a group of investors in 2014. C+RB reported on the sale at the time.
A statement from Steve Olsen and Trip Johnson, two members of the former owners MCC Partners, LLC, said they are confident RedWater will take the club to “a whole new level.”
With the addition of the Muskegon Country Club, RedWater now owns five private and three public golf clubs across the region, MLive.com reported.
