Since the company was founded almost 35 years ago, KemperSports and KemperSports' managed properties have received national acclaim for nearly every aspect of facility management ranging from golf course quality to community impact; from environmental stewardship to customer service.
Our portfolio of recognition and achievements is diverse. Each year, many of KemperSports' municipally managed facilities are recognized for being the best in the country, while some of our premium daily-fee facilities are considered among the top you can play. Perhaps most noteworthy in today's climate is the recognition we have received for consistently operating our facilities in an environmentally sound manner.
KemperSports' success and recognition across the industry is the result of superior leadership and an innovative approach to management that embraces a hands-on, client-centric approach while empowering all staff members. As a result, KemperSports' CEO, Steve Skinner, and President, Josh Lesnik, were both recently ranked in Golf Inc. Magazine's list of "Most Powerful People in Golf".
In addition to the multitude of accolades that our company has received over the years, KemperSports has also garnered significant accolades for hosting, managing and marketing collegiate, professional and national amateur golf tournaments for over 40 years. We recently hosted the 2012 Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid at Harbor Shores Golf Club in Benton Harbor, MI and are preparing to host the 2015 U.S. Open at Chambers Bay in Tacoma, WA.
