Kemper gets contract for Hamilton Farm

KemperSports has been tapped to manage Hamilton Farm Golf Club, a ritzy private enclave in Somerset County, New Jersey’s horse country. The club, which has been tailored to expensive corporate tastes, features a 36-hole, Hurdzan/Fry-designed golf complex, a helicopter landing pad, a 20,000-square-foot mansion with suites for 10 overnight guests, a lodge with four guest suites and meeting space.

Hamilton Farm was built by Lucent Technologies in the late 1990s, in the hope of creating a super-exclusive club for 18 corporations that might do some business together. But Lucent fell on hard times, and it sold the property to Townsend Capital in 2001. Townsend immediately shifted gears, dropping Lucent’s $1 million initiation fee to a measly $250,000 and setting out to recruit 200 corporate members.

Steve Skinner, Kemper’s CEO, describes Hamilton Farm as “a spectacular private club with a tremendous staff” and promises to “enhance the member experience for years to come.”
