Suntex Marinas said it acquired The Ridges Marina, a north Georgia property on Lake Chatuge.

The marina will undergo extensive reinvestment in the coming year, the new owners said.

"We are really looking forward to being part of the Suntex family of marinas,” The Ridges Marina general manager Michael Kennedy said in a statement. “Our team is already working hard with Suntex management to bring about several exciting enhancements to the property in 2017. Our guests are sure to have an experience of a lifetime during their next visit."

The Ridges Marina has more than 300 covered slips, and the facility includes a fuel dock, ships store for incidentals, and pontoon rentals. A resort is adjacent to the marina with tennis courts, a fitness center and pool.

The property also has an on-site restaurant, Lake Chatuge Lighthouse. The 250-seat, casual-dining restaurant and sports bar is the only waterfront restaurant on the lake.

“The Ridges Marina is truly a beautiful location with fantastic amenities and unlimited potential,” said Bryan Redmond, founding principal of Suntex. “Georgia is a special place, full of pristine vacation destinations; we already have two marinas on Lake Allatoona a little further west. The Ridges offers guests Southern charm and a full- service marina destination. We look forward to adding the full Suntex experience for future guests to enjoy.”

The 34 Suntex marinas are in Kentucky, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Texas, Virginia, Tennessee and Oklahoma.
