KemperSports adds two: Village Club and Tobacco Road

KemperSports has been selected to manage The Village Club of Sands Point (N.Y.) and to provide consuklting services for Tobacco Road Golf Club in Sanford, N.C.

Founded on the estate of Isaac Guggenheim in 1918, the Guggenheim family held ownership of The Village Club property until 1953, when it was purchased by the IBM Corporation as a corporate country club and retreat for New York area employees. The facility and on-site mansion held numerous corporate training and executive development seminars until being purchased by its current owner, the Village of Sands Point, in 1994.

Originally designed as a nine-hole layout by Robert Trent Jones Sr., the course was expanded to its current 18-hole routing by renowned golf course architect Tom Doak in 2001. In addition to the golf course, the club includes a swimming pool overlooking Hempstead Harbor, 12 tennis courts, five platform tennis courts, formal and casual dining venues and events space at the Guggenheim Mansion that includes 12 overnight lodging rooms. 

Tobacco Road Golf Club was built on land previously used for tobacco farming, the course was designed by architect Mike Strantz. Because of the unique site and architectural quality, Tobacco Road is widely recognized as one of the top golf courses in the Pinehurst area.

KemperSports will work with Tobacco Road to integrate its best practices and programming, including True Service, the management firm’s proprietary customer service training program, which focuses on ensuring consistent delivery of helpful and friendly service to members and guests.
