“In the 25 years that I have been in the business, I have worked with a number of golf course architects on many various projects, currently I’m working with Raymond Hearn Golf Course Designs and I must say I could not be more pleased. We chose RHGCD because of Ray’s expertise in classical course restorations and a “lay of the land” minimalist approach to golf course design, which fit the criteria that we were looking for in a Golf Course Architect. We are extremely excited with Ray’s outstanding restoration and remodeling design and look forward to its successful completion. I have great confidence in Ray and would recommend his company’s services to any club considering doing work on their golf course.”

“Traverse City Golf & Country Club and I have worked with Ray Hearn for over 5 years. Ray’s focus and commitment from the beginning was to design a practice facility that met the needs and desires of our entire membership yet follow the financial plan made available to his firm. Ray’s friendly personality earned the respect of my green committee during his first presentation. His excellent design, service, professional guidance and leadership throughout the entire process made our renovation a huge success.”

“The centerpiece of Macatawa Legends Development is a Ray Hearn designed championship golf course. We believe Mr. Hearn’s design will be one of the best in West Michigan. The response of those who have played has been extremely positive.”

"With all the reasons we wanted to team with Ray Hearn for this design it comes down to one thing. We trusted him to make a great course on this site without altering the unique natural beauty that existed…and he did just that."

"In business, as a job completes, typically your outside contractors move on to other jobs. We know this must happen, but for Raymond Hearn Golf Course Designs, it's different. They take a personal interest in all of their work just as if each course is like one of their children. Their constant involvement is a breath of fresh air."

“Moon Brook CC has worked with Ray Hearn for 4 years now with Ray finishing a new remodeling master plan in 2006. Ray was a perfect fit for Moon Brook CC. His background in classic golf design is evident in the brilliant master plan he has created for the club. He was able to present a plan that was overwhelmingly accepted by a membership that is generally resistant to change. His plan demonstrated to the Moon Brook faithful how subtle changes can be incorporated to make a great golf course greater, without compromising the original design intent. We would highly recommend hiring Ray to any Club seeking help in this area.”
