KemperSports Selected by Bolingbrook (Ill.) Park District to Manage Boughton Ridge Golf CoursePosted on Tuesday Jun 28, 2016
NORTHBROOK, Ill., June 23, 2016– KemperSports announced today it has been selected by The Bolingbrook Park District to manage Boughton Ridge Golf Course and Ashbury’s at Boughton Ridge – on the northeast side of The Village of Bolingbrook, Ill.
For more than 35 years, Boughton Ridge Golf Course, a 9-hole executive length golf course, has remained a source of pride for the community while serving as a recreational gathering place for youth golfers as well as delivering a dynamic golf experience for avid golfers. The par-32, 2,205-yard layout with strategically placed bunkers can be enjoyed by beginning golfers while also challenging low-handicap players.
In addition to golf, Boughton Ridge rounds out the experience with Ashbury’s – a grill and pub style restaurant known for its burgers, sandwiches and salads and is open year-round. Ashbury’s remains a popular dining destination for golfers after their round as well as non-golfers looking for a casual place to gather with friends. Ashbury’s also has the ability to host private events and outings for up to 80 guests.
“We feel KemperSports is the best partner to further enhance what is already a wonderful community recreation amenity for Bolingbrook residents,” said Ron Oestreich, executive director of the Bolingbrook Park District. “Their experience in managing non-traditional golf courses while enhancing food and beverage operations will be a huge asset to golfers and diners alike.”
KemperSports will be tasked with delivering operational solutions with food and beverage and agronomy cost-saving efficiencies and increased player development programming.
KemperSports will also bring marketing and operational synergies while partnering with nearby properties, including Bolingbrook Golf Club – which KemperSports has managed on behalf of The Village of Bolingbrook since it opened in 2002. KemperSports now manages 15 properties in the Chicagoland area.
“We have proudly been a part of the greater Bolingbrook community for more than 15 years,” said KemperSports CEO Steve Skinner. “We look forward to working with the Bolingbrook Park District to enhance Boughton Ridge and Ashbury’s.”
