The BYC was in the process of being sold by the previous owner (a German lady). The new owners are re-converting the BYC away from timeshare/condo usage into a "pure" hotel.
(How they will handle current owners is beyond me.)

That they would close it during a sale makes NO SENSE to me.
In any event-- it was open when I was there. Any shutdown (if that is reality) has nada to do with Keith.
