NORTHBROOK, Illinois – KemperSports has announced that it has been selected by the Village of Sands Point, NY, to manage The Village Club of Sands Point. Widely considered one of the most vibrant and active clubs on Long Island, the Club enjoys a rich history of exceptional golf and amenities for its members and their guests.
“We have one of the finest club properties around and one of only a few with a waterfront,” said Village of Sands Point Mayor Edward Adler. “We chose Kemper both for its reputation as well as our confidence that it will help us even further raise the high-end member experience.”
Founded on the estate of Isaac Guggenheim in 1918, the Guggenheim family held ownership of the property until 1953, when it was purchased by the IBM Corporation as a corporate country club and retreat for New York area employees. The facility and on-site mansion held numerous corporate training and executive development seminars until being purchased by its current owner, the Village of Sands Point, in 1994.
Originally designed as a nine-hole layout by Robert Trent Jones, the course was expanded to its current 18-hole routing by renowned golf course architect Tom Doak in 2001. Doak is considered one of the finest modern architects for his designs at Pacific Dunes, Old Macdonald and Streamsong Blue. Doak’s design at The Village Club of Sands Point features a par-71 classic layout with views of the New York skyline and Hempstead Harbor throughout.
In addition to the golf course, the club includes a picturesque swimming pool overlooking Hempstead Harbor, twelve tennis courts, five platform tennis courts, formal and casual dining venues and events space at the Guggenheim Mansion that includes 12 luxurious overnight lodging rooms.
“The Village Club of Sands Point is an iconic and historic club in one of the most famous golf markets in the country,” said KemperSports CEO Steve Skinner. “We look forward to working with the Village and members to continue the special traditions of the club while further enhancing the member experience.”
