Northbrook, IL - KemperSports announced today that industry veteran Don Crowe will return to the company to serve as general manager of Bandon Dunes Golf Resort. Following Hank Hickox and Josh Lesnik, Crowe will be just the third general manager in the resort's 17-year history.
In his role, Crowe will be tasked with delivering the consistently high level of service that loyal Bandonistas have come to expect.
A 15-year veteran of KemperSports, Crowe has served as the general manager for the company at five different facilities, including The Glen Club and Dorado Beach Resort and Club in Puerto Rico. With a proven track record of success, Crowe was awarded in 2001 as the James R. Seeley KemperSports General Manager of the Year.
He returns to Bandon Dunes after being on the opening team in 1999 as the resort's first hotel operations manager. Crowe's experience at Bandon Dunes, combined with all of his other leadership roles, make him the ideal candidate to lead what has become the No. 1 golf resort in North America with four courses in the top 100 in the country.
In addition to the world class links, Bandon Dunes Golf Resort also features 200 overnight rooms and five golfer-centric restaurants.
