KemperSports takes over Oakmont Golf Club in Santa Rosa. Calif.


Just months after a $125,000 embezzlement scheme was settled, the members of Oakmont Golf Club have hired KemperSports to manage their property.

The semiprivate club, which features a pair of 18-hole, Ted Robinson-designed courses, is the centerpiece of a seniors-only community in Santa Rosa, California. Fairfield Homes, the community’s developer, opened Oakmont as a private club in the early 1960s.

Steve Skinner, the CEO of KemperSports, calls Oakmont club “a property with a rich history in the local market,” but many of the club’s members would like to forget parts of it. For 14 months, beginning in 2011, they were victimized by a golf operations manager who was later sentenced to a year in prison.

Before KemperSports’ arrival, Oakmont had been managed for nearly a decade by Empire Golf.
