Rehoboth Beach Country Club’s $10.5 million renovation

February 17, 2020

Changing the view

REHOBOTH BEACH — When General Manager Michael MacDonald looks out the bay windows at the Rehoboth Beach Country Club, he sees an ocean of possibilities for the club’s future. After building his career in Florida golf and social clubs, MacDonald is no stranger to stunning water views, but the one found at the Rehoboth Beach Country Club is second to none.

“Even in Miami, you had this great view of the water and you could see the city skyline. But you didn’t have much in terms of a big view like this,” he said. “At nighttime, you can see the houses across the bay light up and that gives it a ethereal, spectacular feel. When people ask what’s our brand, I say ‘this view is it.’”

To capitalize on that brand, MacDonald is overseeing a $10.5 million renovation of the 95-year-old country club. In Feb. 2019, the membership approved a plan to overhaul the clubhouse and expand the pool area and golf course amenities, financed and paid by the membership. The end goal is to inspire current members and to draw new ones. Read the fulll article here.
