KemperSports Selected to Manage Quail Lodge Golf Club

(NORTHBROOK, Ill.) - KemperSports, a leading golf course management company, has been selected by The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited, parent company of The Peninsula Hotels, to manage the Quail Lodge Golf Club, in Carmel, Calif.

Opened in 1964 and designed by Robert Muir Graves, the 18-hole golf course is situated on the scenic Carmel River in the Carmel Valley, making the 6,500 yard, par 71 perfect for the walking golfer. With an active and loyal membership, Quail Lodge Golf Club offers a full schedule of member events and social activities. Quail Lodge also features a golf clubhouse, tennis courts, and a 90-room Lodge, which is currently under renovation and scheduled to open on April 1, 2013. The 20,000 square-foot golf clubhouse includes banquet rooms, meeting space, bar and grill room with indoor and outdoor casual dining, golf shop, as well as a “members only” lounge, pool, workout facilities and men's and ladies’ locker rooms.

"The members at Quail Lodge Golf Club have supported the facility for many years and we plan to continue the tradition of delivering a high-level club experience to the members and their guests," said KemperSports Chief Executive Officer Steve Skinner. "We look forward to welcoming Quail Lodge Golf Club into the KemperCollection, our network of clubs throughout the US."

Quail Lodge Golf Club offers a complete practice facility and golf school, The Golf Academy at Quail Lodge featuring a MAT-T (Motion Analysis Technology by TaylorMade) system – a high-tech tool that takes swing analysis and club-fitting to a new level. Previously only available to PGA TOUR professionals, the MAT-T system gathers vital swing information and statistics using multiple high-speed cameras and converts the data to create a three-dimensional image of any golfer’s swing to create a unique golf lesson and club-fitting environment. Quail Lodge Golf Club is the only club in northern California with the MAT-T system.

“With its newly renovated lodge, a player-friendly golf course and its advanced golf instruction program, we believe the Quail Lodge Golf Club offers a unique golf and resort experience for golfers of all types as well as to groups looking for a resort offering golf, lodging and meeting facilities,“ added Skinner.

KemperSports begins management of the Quail Lodge Golf Club Sept. 1.
