Why do I get directed to GoDaddy asking if I want to buy the name when I enter the Club Orient web address?

presumably the website is just down, rather than being closed by club O - Wondering if they may re=open by next February0, any opinions?

I imagine that they just ignored the email to renew the domain, which is dumb, because renewing a domain is dirt cheap. Someone smart purchased it, and I figure they will pay a pretty penny to get it back, or just start up a different domain. Back when, before Irma, they probably should have bought up a bunch of different similar domains. Domains are generally cheap to buy, unless it is a specific one.

If you look at this video on YouTube, supposedly recorded 3 weeks ago (January 1), it breaks your heart but is a good indication that it's going to be awhile before they're back.....

cluborient.com is still owned by Club O:

Whois lookup

It's not currently re-directing (which is why you get an ad from GoDaddy. Note they are NOT offering to sell you cluborient.com, but rather variations on the theme). This may be because the website is down or because someone neglected to pay the re-direct fee to GoDaddy. Given that Club O has mentioned that they were having problems with their email, this is probably just an oversight which will be rectified.

Just for reference, the domain was updated in 2017 and does not expire until 2021. Fortunately, they have lots of time to deal with any technical issues.
