Bald Head Island’s Shoals Club Kicks Off 2012 Season

1239

By Jens Fisker, Shoals Club General Manager

The Shoals Club officially reopened its doors this past Friday night to members and temporary members. It was great to share the evening with both old friends and new faces. From the improvements to our facilities, to the addition of a new chef, we couldn’t be more excited about the upcoming 2012 season.

With the arrival of Chef Robbie Nicolaisen and the oversight of Bald Head Island Limited, LLC Resort Operations Director Woody Walls, much energy has been devoted to creating new menus for all of our dining venues, from the Dining Room to the Lounge to the Sandbar Grille.

In the Dining Room, you’ll see even more emphasis on regional cuisine and fresh local seafood. We’ve expanded our relationships with vendors who share our vision for uncomplicated, straightforward ingredients of the highest quality, and are utilizing locally sourced and sustainable products where available. NC flounder, Carolina white shrimp and free range chicken are menu highlights and are all sourced from nearby, while natural beef and acorn fed Berkshire pork are produced on small farms and ranches known for their quality. Even our Junior Menu has been revamped with imaginative cuisine and healthy options for those 12 and under. We can’t wait for you to taste the results of the attention our Culinary and Beverage staff has given to identifying the best ingredients and most thoughtful preparations available.

Our Lounge Menu has also been revamped with a tapas-style approach that’s perfect for those desiring lighter fare or a casual evening out. From NC oysters on the half shell to fried green tomatoes, you’ll want to order several plates to share. Also new for this season, we’re featuring a number of craft beers on tap from breweries located across North Carolina. As you have a chance to sample our new brews, please let us know your favorites.

In the coming weeks, we’ll also share our expanded and improved Sandbar Grill menus. We’ve incorporated the great feedback we’ve received from members and guests and hope you’ll be pleased with our new approach.

Don’t forget to mark your calendar for our first Member’s Dinner of the season on Friday, March 30, which offers a delicious menu featuring potato leek soup, baby arugula salad and pork tenderloin. Reservations can be made by calling 910-454-4850.

We look forward to welcoming you time and again at the Shoals Club for the 2012 season to enjoy unparalleled views, premier food and the fellowship of other members.
