KemperSports Selected to Manage Diamante Country Club



NORTHBROOK, Ill., Jan. 8, 2018 KemperSports announced today it has been selected by ownership to manage Diamante Country Club – the only private membership club in the central Arkansas residential community of Hot Springs Village.


Opened in 1995 and designed by Ault, Clark and Associates, Diamante Country Club consistently ranks as one of the top golf courses in the state, including recently being ranked by Golf Digest as the No. 3 best course in Arkansas. The 7,500-yard, par-72 layout is also considered one of the most challenging and scenic tests of golf in the country with its fast-rolling fairways, significant elevation changes and emerging vistas of the mountain landscape.


“We are thrilled to partner with Kemper to manage Diamante Country Club,” said Board President Rich Van Leeuwen. “We chose KemperSports for their significant private club experience and our belief that they are the right partners to ensure a positive future for the club and its members.”


Diamante Country Club remains a popular recreation and social hub of the Hot Springs Village community. Sprawling over 26,000 acres in the Ouachita Mountains of central Arkansas, Hot Spring Village represents the largest gated community in the country and is one of the most vibrant residential communities for social activities and outdoor recreation, including world-class golf, miles of hiking trails and 11 lakes for boating and fishing.  


In addition to its renowned golf course, Diamante Country Club offers a dynamic member experience with a 9,000-sq.-ft. clubhouse with casual and fine dining options through multiple locations. The clubhouse amenities include substantial practice facility with large chipping area and driving range, pool and four lighted clay tennis courts.


“Diamante Country Club is a special place featuring one of the top golf courses in the state,” said KemperSports CEO Steve Skinner. “We look forward to working with ownership to enhance the experience for the membership and their guests.”
