KemperSports Appoints Ross Liggett Sales and Marketing Director of Heron Lakes Golf Club

PORTLAND, Ore., Jan. 22, 2009 – KemperSports today announced that Ross Liggett will assume responsibilities as sales and marketing director at Heron Lakes Golf Club. Heron Lakes is a 36-hole Robert Trent Jones II-designed municipal course owned by Portland Parks and Recreation and managed by KemperSports since June 2008. In his new role, Liggett will be responsible for steering sales and marketing initiatives and programs for the club.

An industry veteran for 10 years, Liggett most recently oversaw operations at Stratton Mountain Resort in Stratton Mountain, VT. A Massachusetts native, he attended the Pamplin School of Business at Virginia Tech where he holds a degree in hospitality and tourism management.

“Ross is well prepared for his new position,” said Heron Lakes General Manager Stewart Koch. “His energy and enthusiasm make him a great addition to the Heron Lakes staff.”
Situated near the confluence of the Columbia and Willamette Rivers in North Portland, Heron Lakes offers two 18-hole courses by Robert Trent Jones II. Both the Greenback and the Great Blue are outstanding layouts with distinctly different characters. Over the course of their history, Heron Lakes has established its courses among the best in the area, boasting near-perfect conditions and tests for all abilities. For more information on Heron Lakes, call 503-289-1818 or visit www.heronlakesgolf.com.visit
