Erin Hills. Site of the 2017 US Open Championship.
First awarded the USGA Women’s Public Links Championship in 2008 before it had opened, Erin Hills was borne from a triple collaboration of designers in Dr. Michael J. Hurdzan, Dana Fry and Golf Digest Senior Architectural Editor Ron Whitten. Since then, not only has this venue hosted the 2011 US Amateur Championship and the 2015 Wisconsin State Amateur Championship, it has been bestowed with endless praise from the highest levels of golf to include current USGA Executive Director Mike Davis “I think it [Erin Hills] is going to go down as one of the great championship tests in the United States. I start to go hole by hole, and I compare this to some of the great U.S. Open sites, like Shinnecock, like Pebble Beach, like Oakmont. This stands up with all of them. I really believe that.”
Scioto CC. Site of the 2016 US Senior Open Championship.
Holding the extraordinary distinction as but one of a handful of venues ever to host a PGA Championship, US Open Championship and Ryder Cup, this childhood home of 18-time Major Championship winner Jack Nicklaus underwent a substantial renovation in 2008 led by Dr. Michael J. Hurdzan and in collaboration with the Golden Bear himself.
The Philadelphia Cricket Club. Wissahickon Course. Site of the 2015 PGA Professional National Championship, 2016 PGA Senior Players Championship and 2020 US Amateur Four-Ball Championship.
Considered by many historians to be the oldest (1854) continuously active Club in the United States, a team led by Dr. Michael J. Hurdzan had the honor of adding a new addition (the 2002 Militia Hill course) to the two existing and universally famed A.W. Tillinghast designed Wissahickon and Saint Martin’s courses.
