KemperSports to Manage Pottawattomie Country Club


Historic Club enters new phase of exceptional service and member experience


NORTHBROOK, Ill., Jan. 19, 2016 KemperSports announced today that they have been retained by the Board of Directors to manage Pottawattomie Country Club in Michigan City, Ind. Located just an hour east of downtown Chicago, the club has a rich history of delivering one of the best and  vibrant club experiences in the region.


The 18-hole, par-72 championship golf course was designed by Tom Bendelow and opened in 1909. Bendelow is best known for his award-winning designs at all three courses at Medinah Country Club as well as East Lake Golf Club. Bendelow’s routing utilizes minimalist design attributes while highlighting the natural beauty of the terrain. 


In addition to golf, the club includes a family-friendly pool with adjacent snack bar, pro shop and a newly-built clubhouse with multiple dining options as well as ample space for private events and weddings.


“KemperSports is the right partner to lead our club in to the next generation,” said board president Kevin Martin. “As a fellow Midwest company, they share in the similar values of exceptional service and experience that have been instilled at Pottawattomie Country Club.” 


KemperSports will be tasked with delivering innovative membership retention and sales programs while leveraging clubhouse utilization for additional social events, weddings and member programming.


“Pottawatommie Country Club is widely recognized as one of the finest family-friendly private clubs in the region,” said KemperSports CEO Steve Skinner. “We look forward to working with membership to ensure the highest levels of service are maintained at their historic club.”


KemperSports’ presence in the region continues to grow as the company also manages Harbor Shores, host of the 2016 Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid, located just 40 minutes north in Benton Harbor, Mich.
