January 10, 2019

JJManning Auctioneers is pleased to announce the January 10th successful closing of the $8,805,000 auction sale of fee & leasehold interests in Newport County's "The Carnegie Abbey Club" held on December 4, 2018.

The auction was a multi-part or in the entirety event featuring the Donald Steel designed 18-hole course, clubhouse, and 41-slip marina that lie on approximately 280+/- acres on Narragansett Bay owned and leased by the Benedictine Monks who operate the neighboring "Portsmouth Abbey School." Also included was 6.2+/- acres of condo development land and 2.5+/- acres of residential development land.  

Marina owners, golf course operators, investors, and developers were represented among the registered bidders. A crowd of over 80 included many members who watched as the 7 bidders vied for 5 auction groupings, rising with a spontaneous roar of applause when Justin Manning's hammer fell and one of the more active buyers, represented by counsel, took the auction in the entirety.  Laura Decker, Director of Membership & Marketing for "The Carnegie Abbey Club" later indicated that the buying entity "consists of a group of current members committed to restoring the club to the high standards it has historically been known for.
