KemperSports will be tasked with delivering operational best practices to ensure the current levels of quality playing conditions and exceptional service to its guests. With strong experience in managing some of the top municipally-owned golf courses around the country, KemperSports will implement marketing strategies to grow business levels in golf, banquets and the restaurant.
