KemperSports selected to manage White Clay Creek Country Club

Premier management company to enhance the guest golf and banquet experience and grow food and beverage revenues

NORTHBROOK, ILLINOIS, Feb. 3, 2022 – KemperSports announced today that it has been selected to manage White Clay Creek Country Club, located on the grounds of the Casino at Delaware Park in Wilmington, Del. White Clay Creek becomes the first course under KemperSports management in the state of Delaware. The company will look to elevate the property’s golf and dining experience and grow its business overall.

White Clay Creek Country Club opened in 2005 and is positioned around the racetrack and stables of Delaware Park. Designed by the famed architecture duo of Arthur Hills and Steve Forrest, the course was constructed with a focus on environmental sensitivity. The land’s natural beauty has been enhanced by the retention of its native horticulture, a supervised stream restoration and wildlife habitat preservation. The 7,007-yard, par 72 layout features five sets of tees to appeal to both new and experienced players. For the last three years, White Clay Creek has ranked No. 4 on GolfPass’ annual Golfers’ Choice list of best courses in Delaware.

“White Clay Creek has long been a favorite among locals in the region,” said KemperSports CEO Steve Skinner. “We’re excited to bring our experience in public golf and understanding of what players and guests want to improve the overall experience, enhance the food and beverage offerings and take the club to the next level.”

The facility also includes a 40,000-square foot clubhouse, 12-acre outdoor practice facility and indoor golf academy, fully equipped pro shop, banquet facilities and local dining favorite, At The Rail Wine Bar & Grille.
