WILLIAMSBURG, Va., Nov. 17, 2009 – Lennar Homes, one of the nation’s largest home builders, today announced the selection of KemperSports to manage Colonial Heritage Golf Club in historic Williamsburg, Va.

Built in 2006, the 18-hole Arthur Hills design offers golfers a 6,889-yard, par-72 layout with five sets of tees and immaculate playing conditions throughout the 175-acre course. The golf course, which is widely considered to be one of the top courses in Virginia, challenges all levels of play with strategically placed bunkers and undulating fairways all set in the classic beauty of the natural terrain.
