KemperSports Selected to Manage Victory Ranch Club

Victory Ranch will be added to the KemperCollection portfolio of private clubs ... Features Rees Jones-designed championship golf course, fly fishing within close proximity to Deer Valley

(NORTHBROOK, Ill.) – KemperSports, a leading golf course management company, has been selected by Sterling Bay Companies to manage Victory Ranch Club, a private luxury home development located 15 miles from Park City in Kamas, Utah. The 6,700 -acre property, just a 10-minute drive from the ski lifts at Deer Valley, includes an 18-hole Rees Jones-designed championship golf course, fly fishing and additional ranch club amenities.

“Victory Ranch is a very special piece of property that has great potential,” said KemperSports chief executive officer Steve Skinner. “We are honored to have the opportunity to work with Sterling Bay Companies to develop a world class club.”

The private golf course, which opened in 2009, has been recognized by leading golf publications including Golfweek as part of the publication’s “2010 Best New Courses” list.

“We selected KemperSports to manage Victory Ranch because of the company’s proven success in the golf industry, especially in the private club sector,” said John Gavin, Investment Principal at Sterling Bay Companies. “We are excited about the acquisition of Victory Ranch and we expect it will be a premier ranch destination in the Western U.S., offering both world-class golf and fly fishing on property."

The 18-hole golf course at Victory Ranch features a 7,599 yard par-72 layout, and was designed by Rees Jones to complement the 20-mile views of the Wasatch and Uinta Mountains and views of the upper Provo River and Jordanelle Reservoir. Exciting elevation changes and high plateaus also allow spectacular views of Flat Top Peak. The course features fescue-lined fairways, white sand bunkers, natural walls of ancient stone and an average of seven tee boxes per hole to offer numerous yardage options for golfers of all skill levels. An outstanding practice facility featuring a driving range, chipping area and putting area completes the golf experience at Victory Ranch.

In addition to the golf course, Victory Ranch features a fishing lodge with access to world-class private fly fishing on a five-mile stretch of the upper Provo River—one of the world’s greatest freestone trout fisheries.

KemperSports recently began management of Victory Ranch Club June 1.
