Beacon Hill Club | Summit, New Jersey
Assistant General Manager

About the Club
Beacon Hill Club, located 20 miles west of New York City, is situated on nine picturesque acres in Summit, New Jersey on the site of a Revolutionary War Landmark. Carroll P. Basset, founder of the Jersey Central Power and Light Company, built the Main Clubhouse in 1910 as a private home. The focal point of the Club is the 27-room, Tudor-style Main Clubhouse which is supported by a lower campus featuring a recently renovated outdoor ice hockey rink, state of the art platform tennis facility and additional dining outlet.

Adjoining porches and terraces lend to a careful blend of programming and athletic activities which appeal to all demographics of membership. As a family-oriented Club with rich heritage and traditions, Beacon Hill offers authentic year-round programming to appeal to a multi-generational membership. The Club is scheduled to complete phase I of the master plan in September 2021, which includes a full renovation of Main Bar, a Wine Cellar, a kids lounge, and new Club-owned pro-shop.

The Club operates year-round with the core of operations being centered around the summer and winter months. Operations in the colder months are driven by the outdoor ice rink which serves as an area of programming and social engagement for the Beacon Hill community. The Main Clubhouse is closed for dining for multiple periods at the beginning of August and the middle of March. The Carriage House, which serves as less formal dining, operates seasonally and in tandem with either the pool or ice-season. The “shoulder” seasons, late March to mid-May and early October to late November, are typically less busy for Club operations.

Gross revenue exceeds $4.3 million with Food & Beverage accounting for $1.2 million. There are 113 staff members at the height of season and a total of 465 memberships today.
