Scarborough Properties is developing the Somers Point Paddle Club at Harbour Cove, on the site of the former Bubba Mac’s Shack at 520 Bay Ave.

The private club will have a membership of 600 to 700 families who will be able to enjoy two resort pools and multiple spas. Other features include an outdoor restaurant and bar area in addition to private cabanas and over 200 fully upholstered chaise lounges set atop a porcelain tile deck overlooking the marina’s North Basin.

Lush exterior landscaping and detailed architecture, pool deck plantings, complimentary towel and chaise cover service and fine outdoor furniture will combine to create a tranquil, members-only waterfront resort amenity.

In addition, two apartments, three- and two-bedroom properties overlooking the pool and marina, will be available for rental by members and their guests.

The Somers Point Paddle Club will be the third club by the developer adding to the existing Cape May Paddle Club and the Brigantine Paddle Club currently under construction and opening in summer 2023.

The Somers Point Paddle Club will open for summer 2024 with memberships going on sale in late summer of 2023. Priority will be given to Harbour Cove Marina slip holders and Somers Point residents initially, and then open to the broader community if positions remain available.

Membership fees have not yet been determined, but the Brigantine Paddle Club memberships opened four weeks ago at a cost of $1,950 per season. The season will run mid-May to mid-September.
