Listen> Jim Fraser; former owner of Mays Landing Country Club talk about The Links at Brigantine Golf Course. They’re looking for someone to take over Food & Beverage and Jim was there for the ‘walk-thru’ on March 2.
An RFP was sent out recently order to attract a vendor that would feed & provide drink inside the Links Clubhouse at the north end of the island.
Pirates Den, Cellar 32 and Mad Dog Morgan were 3 of the 6 potential bidders who did a walk-thru of the facilities on WED March 2.
Brigantine Links Manager; Nathan, said that 23,000 rounds were played in 2015. Fraser thinks that Brigantine needs at least 30,000 rounds with an average price per round $40 to be successful.
‘Anemic’ is how Fraser described the 2015 revenue numbers that Mad Dog Morgan brought in last season. The Links food & bev operation called Morgan’s Pub, only brought in $270,000 as reported by Morgan himself. Many of Morgan’s utilities like electricity, WIFI and TV were subsidized by Brigantine Taxpayers. Morgan was able to leverage the City’s concessionaires permit which made it very cheap for Mad Dog to serve beer & spirits.
