The Witmondt and Schonbraun Families, operating through Edgewood Golf Course Realty Associates, are the new owner of the 60-year-old golf course, Edgewood Country Club in River Vale.

"Edgewood Country Club boasts a longstanding history and a loyal member base in Bergen County and beyond,” says Dan Rogers, general manager, Edgewood Country Club. “This new ownership ushers in a new era of financial stability and a long-term improvement plan that will feature exceptional facilities and fresh programming at Edgewood." 

The transaction closed on April 1. Hampton Golf Management is now providing management oversight during the ownership transition and will continue ongoing operations management of the club.

The new owners plan to make capital improvements during upcoming years to update both the property and facilities. Program and amenity updates are also in the works—including the swimming pool and club house, slated to start this year.

"The Witmondt and Schonbraun families have long and successful track records within the golf club and real estate industries and bring the fresh perspective of some extraordinarily successful business people to the club. They also possess strong family values and are very savvy about current trends and the expectations of country club membership in the region," says MG Orender, founder, Hampton Golf Management and a former PGA President. "I am very excited for what the future of Edgewood holds for both its loyal, existing and new members alike."

The country club offers event space for both members and non-members. 

After several months of renovations, the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia-Valley Forge is now open as the Alloy – King of Prussia, a DoubleTree by Hilton.

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Although several cities are opening up again, many offices are still enforcing work from home policies. As they did when Stay at Home first began, plenty of organizations are still offering webinars with insights on how to tackle the new normal. Gaining new knowledge is a great way to use extra time that might have been spent on a commute. 

Here at M+E, we’ll keep the following list updated, as some webinars are live and some are pre-recorded. Please email lauren.pahmeier@tigeroak.com to add more applicable webinars to the list.
