Case Study

Sand Creek Station

Newton, Kansas

Daily Fee - Municipal

KemperSports has enjoyed its longstanding partnership with the City of Newton since 2005. KemperSports played an instrumental role in working closely with the City, course architect, and construction group on the pre-opening, design and development of a facility that would “fill a void” in the market. Sand Creek Station has held the highest customer loyalty index in the United States since 2008 (Standard Fee Category) with the National Golf Foundation’s annual Golf Survey Program. In 2018, based on KemperSports’ optimal performance, the City asked for a long-term early contract renewal and signed a 9-year extension (the maximum extension the Law would allow) for full-service operations management.
