Correction: KemperSports continues to grow portfolio

Editors note: We have corrected our data on the number of facilities managed by KemperSports, which is 109 18-hole equivalents. We also updated the company's profile in the digital version of the magazine, which is published below. Golf Inc. previously reported numbers that it gathered doing its own research, and which were not verified by the company. Since publication, KemperSports has cooperated with Golf Inc. to ensure accurate data.  Last year we inadvertantly reported the number of facilities and not the number of 18-hole equivalent golf courses. When compared to the current portfolio, this erroneously showed a large drop in the number of courses managed. We apologize for this error. KemperSports continues to grow its portfolio, as reflected in the story below. Its rank as the sixth largest management company in the world is unchanged. 

 

 

KemperSports, a privately owned company with an eclectic portfolio, increased its portfolio by eight properties in the first half of 2019, reaching the largest number of golf courses in its history. It manages 131 facilities, 121 with golf, and 109 18-hole equivalent courses.

KemperSports continues to dominate when it comes to management of top 100 courses, a niche it solidified soon ater Bandon Dunes opened in 1999. It has also added numerous private clubs to its portfolio. The company recently added Links at Perry Cabin, the last course completed by the legendary Pete and Alice Dye; Thornberry Creek at Oneida, host of the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic and the official golf course of the Green Bay Packers; and Rock Spring Golf Club at West Orange in New Jersey, one of only two public Seth Raynor designed golf courses.
