Joel Jacobs and 93 Capital Group selected KemperSports to manage full resort operations at Dismal River Club in Mullen, Neb.
“We are very excited to be working with KemperSports as we continue to develop the property and work toward improving the overall member experience,” said Dismal River Club CEO and Owner Joel Jacobs. “The high-level customer service programming they have built from decades of experience will be a great resource for our club’s unique remote location.”
KemperSports will focus on strengthening Dismal River’s reputation as one of the Midwest’s premier private destination clubs while enhancing the member and guest experience through a continued commitment to delivering unrivaled service and unique offerings.
“Dismal River is an incredibly special destination in the Sandhills,” said KemperSports CEO Steve Skinner. “The two courses designed by Jack Nicklaus and Tom Doak are very highly regarded and the club amenities are first class. We are excited to work with Joel Jacobs to carry out his vision and elevate the member and guest experience.”
Located in the Sandhills of western Nebraska, Dismal River has attracted golfers from all over the world since the opening of its Jack Nicklaus-designed White Course in 2006. The complementary Tom Doak layout (Red Course) opened in 2013. In 2017, Jacobs — a Mullen native — took the helm of the club and expanded its offerings to include 80 rooms, 17 guided hunting and fishing experiences, an array of outdoor excursions such as horseback riding, kayaking and mountain biking, rustic-inspired lodging amenities and several dining options.
In addition to the 80 rooms currently on property, Dismal River will be adding 20 more to open later this year, which will be situated in four-bedroom luxury cabins.
