Knife and Fork's Doughtery Family Buying Linwood Country Club

Last Edited:

The Linwood Country Club will soon be under new ownership after it's sold to the owners of three well-known Atlantic City restaurants.

The board of directors of the Linwood Country Club announced plans to sell the 97-year old club, once a private club, to the Dougherty family.

The Dougherty family currently owns and operates Dock's Oyster House, Harry's Oyster Bar, and the Knife and Fork Inn — all in Atlantic City. 

Officials with Linwood Country Club — about 15 minutes outside Atlantic City, also in Atlantic County — say they are excited about the Daugherty family's plans and look forward to working with them to write the next chapter for the historic club.

The sale is expected to be completed before the end of 2017.
