KemperSports to Manage Homestead Golf and Country Club
Pacific Northwest public golf course remains centerpiece of community
NORTHBROOK, Ill., Jan. 12, 2016 – KemperSports started the new year on a high note as the company announced today that they have been selected to manage Homestead Golf and Country Club in Lynden, Wash. Located just a few miles south of the U.S./Canadian border, “The Homestead” has remained the centerpiece of a 400-home residential community since opening in 1993.
The 18-hole championship golf course features wide landing areas and multiple tee options making it a top destination for novice and avid golfers alike. Set among the valley of the Cascade Mountains to the east, Homestead offers unmatched views as it routes through the residential community and native berry farmland.
“KemperSports is the right partner to lead operations at Homestead Golf and Country Club based on their significant experience in operational efficiencies and name recognition of managing premier properties as well as their unmatched presence in the Pacific Northwest,” said owner Mr. Morris Chen.
KemperSports will leverage more than 30 years of golf operational and agronomic experience to ensure that Homestead Golf Course is properly positioned for the future. In addition to golf, the club includes a large pro shop with changing rooms and fireplace.
“Homestead Golf Club has a long standing reputation as a great value golf experience in the region,” said KemperSports CEO Steve Skinner. “We look forward to working with ownership to provide the best possible experiences for the community residents and golfers in the Pacific Northwest.”
KemperSports’ presence in the Pacific Northwest continues to grow as the company also manages Chambers Bay in University Place, Wash. – host of the 2015 U.S. Open Championship – and Bandon Dunes Golf Resort in Bandon, Ore. – named by Golf Digest as the No. 1 Golf Resort in North America.
Northbrook, Ill.-based KemperSports builds, owns and manages golf courses, resorts, athletic clubs and lodging venues across the U.S., Caribbean and Central America.
