Design Distinctions

We greatly appreciate all the players who have taken the time to recognize the time and effort we put into every single one of our projects. Each year,  we are grateful to have opportunities to design new courses and receive player ratings on multiple course designs that rank among the sports best.

For 13 of the last 13 years, John Houck, HouckDesign has consistently had at least one course in the top 3 in the world on at least one of the two major player review sites. 

 

John Houck has also consistently had at least one course as the #1 course in the world for 11 years out of the last 13 years on at least one of the two major player review sites.

We have listed out the Design Distinctions of the past four years only below.
