Coral Ocean Golf Resort may re-open in first quarter of 2020

E-LAND Group may re-open Coral Ocean Golf Resort in the first quarter of 2020, its chief executive officer Matthew Park said on Saturday.

He told reporters that it will cost more than $50 million to repair and renovate the hotel and its golf course which have been closed since Oct. 2018 after Super Typhoon Yutu slammed into Saipan and Tinian.

Park said E-Land hopes to re-open the golf course first and then some of the buildings that were not badly damaged by the typhoon.

In a separate interview, Gloria Cavanagh, general manager of Pacific Island Club, another hotel operated by E-Land, said Coral Ocean Golf Resort is still in the “demolition phase.”

She added that the first quarter of 2020 is the target date for the reopening of the hotel and golf course.

Cavanagh said the management is also considering adding 200 rooms to the hotel.

Coral Ocean Golf Resort started clearing and demolishing its typhoon-damaged facilities in May.

Kensington, the other hotel operated by E-Land Group on Saipan, marked its third anniversary on Saturday.
