Historic or Contemporary? Discover the Best of Both Worlds at the Gibbs Estate

Antiquity is being remastered by Martelli Signature Homes at the Gibbs Estate on the Suneagles Golf Course, where more than 90 years of history pair with a modern renovation to create an old-meets-new ambiance of sophistication.

The golf course was designed by A.W. Tillinghast, a noted early 20th-century American golf course architect, and opened in 1926. Formerly the grand clubhouse of the course, Gibbs Estate (formerly known as Gibbs Hall) has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Nestled atop the Suneagles Golf Course, this historic, Tudor style venue offers a prime location in Eatontown, N.J. for events of all types and sizes, including:

  • Weddings
  • Corporate meetings and events
  • Fundraisers and galas
  • Golf outings
