I selected Raymond Hearn as my golf course architect based on his ‘lay of the land’ approach to golf course design. I wanted an architect that would respect the land and take advantage of its outstanding natural beauty and Ray Hearn did just that.

Ray did an excellent job in designing an award-winning golf course (National Award Golf Digest Magazine). From a golf course owner and golf course contractor’s perspective, he is one of the best golf course architects practicing today.

Ray is a great drawer of plans but his 70 plus site visits over four years was what brought the design to life. His great work earned Golf Magazine’s Best Renovation in the USA in the private club category. I have great confidence in Ray and would recommend him to any club.

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. His excellent design, professional service and leadership throughout the entire process made our renovation a huge success.

Our prestigious club is the oldest private club in all of Central America. We are also honored by being the only PGA Tour Stop in all of Central America. We considered many golf course architects including the top PGA Tour Players but we selected Raymond Hearn as we were confident he was the best choice to help elevate our course standing from very good to excellent. The membership and board felt we have made a great choice.
