KemperSports retained to manage New Jersey's Hamilton Farm Golf Club

NORTHBROOK, Ill. -- KemperSports, the most trusted name in golf, announced today that it has been selected to manage club operations at Hamilton Farm Golf Club, an exclusive private golf club in Gladstone, N.J. Located about 60 minutes west of New York City, Hamilton Farm Golf Club features 36 holes of golf, including an 18-hole, par-3 course, on a historic estate in Somerset County. Hamilton Farm Golf Club becomes the latest addition to KemperCollection, KemperSports' growing portfolio of private clubs.

Hamilton Farm Golf Club was recognized as the 2012 Club of the Year by the New Jersey PGA Section and the New Jersey State Golf Association. Its two 18-hole courses, Highlands and Hickory, were designed by famed architects Dr. Michael Hurdzan and Dana Fry, and carved from acres of hardwood forests. The Highlands course played host to the LPGA HSBC Women's World Match Play Championship in 2005-2006, and more recently the LPGA Sybase Match Play Championship from 2010-2012. Hamilton Farm's short course, Hickory, is the nation's only USGA-rated 18-hole par-3 course.

"Hamilton Farm Golf Club is a spectacular private club with a tremendous staff," said Steve Skinner, chief executive officer of KemperSports. "We look forward to working with the members, staff and ownership on ways to enhance the member experience for years to come."

Rich in tradition, Hamilton Farm was once part of a 5,000-acre farm established in 1911 by Wall Street financier James Cox Brady. The grounds still contain many of the original buildings today, including barns and horse stables. The main stable at Hamilton Farm was built in 1916 and has been headquarters to the United States Olympic Equestrian Team since 1961.

In addition to golf, other club amenities at Hamilton Farm include a Georgian-style mansion with 10 guest suites, a private lodge with four guest suites, meeting accommodations and an inviting clubhouse that offers both casual and formal dining, locker rooms and a pro shop.
