History of the Belmar Fishing Club
- The Belmar Fishing Club was first organized with forty-nine members on September 1st, 1909. Arrangements were then made with the Ocean Pier Co. to construct a club room.
- In 1929, the fishing club erected a bigger and better clubhouse to accommodate its growing membership.
- In 1930, the fishing club we now occupy was officially dedicated and declared open.
Belmar Fishing Club is located on 100 Ocean Avenue & First Street, Belmar, a few blocks from Silver Lake, Jane Magovern’s Playground, and Belmar Beach. The Belmar Fishing Club structure is typical of the recreational clubhouses and/or public facilities constructed in the early twentieth century in New Jersey’s coastal resort communities. The presence of such clubhouses also reflects nearly two centuries of recreational and sporting activity along the coast. From 1929 to 1930, the Belmar community embraced its Spanish Mission style as appropriate seaside architecture.
Belmar Fishing Club is situated in a nice and secluded location that is out of the public eye but still right on the beach. The club has an open fireplace near the front door, that gives the place an old-world vibe. The staff of the club is also very nice and welcoming.
