KemperSports Selected to Manage Bear Creek Golf Complex
Marks KemperSports’ first property in the state of Arizona
KemperSports has been selected to manage Bear Creek Golf Complex in Chandler, Ariz. The announcement, which comes after a highly-competitive bid process, marks KemperSports’ first managed property in the state. The popular Bear Creek Golf Complex includes 36 holes of golf designed by Jack Nicklaus Design Company, practice facility with PGA professional instruction and The Bear’s Den Bar & Grill.
“Bear Creek has enjoyed a great reputation as one of the most popular public golf venues in the southeast Valley,” said Dan Strand, principal, Las Corrientes, LLC. “We look forward to collaborating with KemperSports and leaning on their more than 30 years of experience in the golf industry.”
Located 25 miles southeast of downtown Phoenix, Bear Creek’s golf offering is highlighted by The Bear Course as the championship par-72 layout can stretch to more than 6,800 yards. The Bear Course delivers an “inland links” golf experience with firm and fast playing conditions across rolling desert terrain and strategic bunkering.
The executive Cub Course provides a sporty alternative to the Bear Course’s championship layout. At just 3,500 yards and a par-59 routing, The Cub Course offers a fun alternative and a great golf course for beginning and junior golfers.
The complex also includes a robust practice facility with grassed driving range, short game area and two practice putting greens.
“We are proud to be managing our first property in the highly-competitive Phoenix golf market,” said KemperSports CEO Steve Skinner. “We look forward to working with ownership to enhance the golf experience at Bear Creek.”
KemperSports will be tasked with implementing proven sales and marketing initiatives to engage with local golfers to ensure that the golf courses remain a positive hub for the Easy Valley golf community. KemperSports will also introduce TrueService – the company’s proprietary customer service training program that is built to deliver unique guest interactions through genuine and friendly service.
