The Park Club Welcomes Jim Shumate, CCM as General Manager

October 26, 2023

The Park Club in Orange County, CA has announced the appointment of Jim Shumate, CCM, as its General Manager. The club is scheduled to open in December 2023 after completing a total renovation in the space formerly occupied by the Center Club Costa Mesa. The exclusive club is poised to be the leader in the city club sector in Orange County and will focus on the local business and arts communities. The club will feature both casual and upscale dining, a vibrant bar scene, private events, outdoor space, high-tech business conference rooms, and personal business space.

Located directly adjacent to the Segerstrom Center for the Arts, home of the Philharmonic Society of Orange County, the Pacific Symphony, the American Ballet Theater, the South Coast Repertory, and the newly opened Orange County Museum of Art, The Park Club sits in the center of the Southern California art scene. As the Club begins its next chapter as part of the BNG Hospitality Group, the space will be inspired by the neighboring art institutions and will become a destination for the community’s creative class and business community. The Park Club is also a member of the Palmer Advantage Club Network.

Mr. Shumate has a long history in the club and hospitality industry, having worked at some of the finest clubs in Southern California and South Orange County, including The Riviera Country Club, Big Canyon Country Club, Monarch Bay Beach Club, Bella Collina Towne & Golf Club, and Coto de Caza Golf & Racquet Club. He achieved his CCM designation in 2021 after previously being named a Willmore Kendall Scholar by CMAA.
