Golf Course Architect
For the last fifty years, Arthur Hills has delivered hundreds of beautiful, thrilling, award-winning designs to golfers all over the world. With over 190 original designs and 120 renovation projects, Arthur Hills has become one of the most respected and admired golf course architects in the modern era. His renovations include renowned clubs such as Oakmont, Inverness, Oakland Hills, and Congressional Country Club, and his original creations have graced Golf Digest's Top 100 list, won Golf Digest's Best New Public and Best New Private Course awards, and garnered dozens of top State and 'Best in Class' rankings that are too numerous to list here. Not surprisingly, fifty of his designs have been chosen to host prestigious tournaments and events on the PGA, LPGA, Senior PGA, and European PGA Tours, as well as USGA Championships, Collegiate championships, Mini-Tour events and nationally televised Made-for-TV events such as the annual Skins Game at Bighorn Golf Club and Shell's 'Wonderful World of Golf' match play event played at both Bay Harbour (ranked the 8th Best Public Golf Course in the United States by GOLF Magazine) and Longaberger Golf Club.
Of all the awards and accolades bestowed upon Arthur Hills' designs, however, perhaps the greatest testament to his broad and enduring appeal occurred rather quietly, when, in the only poll of its kind conducted in the mid-1990's, 535 course rating panelists for Golf Digest Magazine selected Arthur Hills as one of the Top Five "Favorite Present-Day Architects".
And now, fifty years and over 300 courses after his first design, Arthur Hills has created a masterpiece at Chicago Highlands.
