Authur Hills Philosophy
Golf course architect Arthur Hills has always admired traditional golf courses, such as Pinehurst #2, Shinnecock Hills, Cypress Point, Prairie Dunes, Seminole, Merion and Inverness. Taking a historic approach to every course he designs, his goal is to exceed expectations of beauty, preservation of natural features, strategic design and quality of construction. To that end, he includes elements which make for a fair and balanced course that is both aesthetically pleasing and strategically sound.
