Chicago Golf Company Dominates Top-100 List

KEMPER_SPORTS_GLEN_CLUBChicago golf course management company KemperSports recently placed nine of its properties in GOLF Magazine’s Top 100 Courses You Can Play list. The list, which will be featured in the September issue of the magazine, utilizes a two-year rating system based on the input from a prestigious group of golf writers, industry veterans and raters. KemperSports continues to manage more top-100 golf courses than any other management company.

The company currently manages 15 golf courses in Illinois, including The Glen Club, which was ranked 78th on the GOLF Magazine list. Other KemperSports properties in our state include Bolingbrook Golf Club, Deerpath Golf Course in Lake Forest, Cantigny Golf in Wheaton, Fox Lake Country Club, Hawthorn Woods Country Club, Highland Park Country Club, Bull Valley Golf Club in Woodstock, Royal Melbourne Country Club in Long Grove, Stone Creek Golf Club in Urbana, Turnberry Country Club in the Village of Lakewood, Vernon Hills Golf Course, Rockford Country Club and Chicago’s Harborside International Golf Center.

“We are proud and privileged manage more top-ranked golf courses that any other management company,” said KemperSports Chief Executive Officer Steve Skinner. “These honors are a true testament to the vision of our clients and the quality of the staff that manages each facility.”

KemperSports-managed properties throughout the United States that were honored include:

  • No. 1 – Pacific Dunes – Bandon, Ore.
  • No. 8 – Bandon Dunes – Bandon, Ore.
  • No. 10 – Old Macdonald – Bandon, Ore.
  • No. 12 – Streamsong (Red) – Streamsong, Fla.
  • No. 13 – Bandon Trails – Bandon, Ore.
  • No. 16 – Streamsong (Blue) – Streamsong, Fla.
  • No. 17 – Chambers Bay – University Place, Wash.
  • No. 74 – The Prairie Club (Dunes) – Valentine, Neb.
  • No. 78 – The Glen Club

The 2015 U.S. Open will takes place at KemperSports’ Chambers Bay in Washington State. This will be the first time America’s National Championship will be played in the Pacific Northwest. With massive, rolling fairways, towering dunes, undulating greens and unpredictable coastal winds, Chambers Bay should provide the world’s best with a test unlike anything played at a U.S. Open.
