Beau Rivage Hires Hotel Management Company

By Meg Garner, posted May 16, 2014
Beau Rivage Lodge, Golf and Resort announced this week it hired Crown Hotel and Travel Management to manage the Wilmington golf resort’s hotel and meeting space.

This move will allow the facility’s owners to focus their attention on golf operations.
Crown manages four hotels in North Carolina and Virginia. Beau Rivage will the fifth hotel in Crown’s portfolio, but it will be the first that includes accommodations such as its own golf course.
“We are extremely excited to add Beau Rivage to our ever growing portfolio,” Barry Eagle, director of operations at Crown, said in a press release. “This property has so much potential and has unique qualities unlike any other hotel in Wilmington.”
In the fall, Beau Rivage owner Charlie Walker decided to outsource the hotel management to focus more on golf operations.
Walker found Crown after he received a referral from a trusted source. Now he hopes that the new management team will help to not only expand its business but also improve its efficiency.
Walker said there is already a positive change in his business. He said Crown has focused its attention on room renovations, competitive pricing and, most importantly, new golf packages.
“We are the only Wilmington golf course where you can go from the bed to the tee,” said Jake Walker, Beau Rivage’s director of marketing.
Crown will only manage the 28-bedroom lodge and 2,800-square-foot meeting space. Beau Rivage’s management will continue to oversee the golf course, clubhouse, pool, lounge, tennis courts, restaurant and bar.
With the extra help, the Walker family can now focus solely on the golf course and for them that’s a “huge peace of mind,” Jake Walker said.
