Suneagles Golf Course and Gibbs Hall Contract Up for Grabs

The original contract has run out and must go out to bid again.

The Suneagles Golf Course and Gibbs Hall could be under new management this spring.

Both are owned by the Army which is temporarily leasing the property to the Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority (FMERA), the authority that oversees the redevelopment of the fort from Army installation to civilian properties.

For more than a year now Atlantic Golf has managed the Eatontown course. It subcontracts the banquet facilities management to McLoone's.

The successful bidder for the contract will pay FMERA $10,000 per quarter to reimburse it for the cost of leasing it from the Army. The Army has extended it's lease to FMERA for an additional 18 months. FMERA officials say they hope to sell off the property to a private owner in the near future.

No word yet on whether Atlantic Golf will put in its bid again. Whoever does win the contract, which begins April 1, will be required to keep current golf fees at the 2013 rate with a 10 percent allowable increase the following year.

The operator of the course would also be required to clean up remaining damage from Superstorm Sandy.
