KemperSports to oversee construction of 9-hole in N.J.


The Hudson County Improvement Authority has hired KemperSports to oversee the construction of a nine-hole, player-friendly course that will take shape on part of a reclaimed landfill in Jersey City, New Jersey.

“They have a proven track record of building strong public awareness, working with local schools and finding creative ways to attract residents and seniors to public courses,” said Norman Guerra, the authority’s CEO.

Lincoln Park West Golf Course has been designed by Roy Case, a Royal Palm Beach, Florida-based architect who’s made a career of working on what he calls “difficult sites.” He’s done at least two courses on landfills, in Houston, Texas and West Palm Beach, Florida.

When Lincoln Park West opens, most likely in the summer of 2015, KemperSports will operate it.
