Multimillion-Dollar Hills Course Renovation

We’re turning The Hills course into a golfing paradise! Remember the recent Saddleback 9-hole renovation? Well, that was just the warm-up. The main event began in March, with the grand reopening of the Cimmarron Course slated for October. It's like waiting for your birthday but with more golf balls and fewer candles.

Over the last several months, we have partnered with Lanny Wadkins and Kurt Bowman from Wadkins Design Group to widen the previously planned renovation project from just the greens to the remaining 18 holes! The scope of renovation work for Holes 1-18 will include not only the greens, but bunkers, fairways, putting green, practice facility, and cart paths. Irrigation upgrades will also be made where necessary to ensure the course provides the best play.

The Cimmarron Course (10-18) will be completed over the next six months and the Chisholm Course (1-9) soon after.

“I’m thrilled to be able to work with this wonderful Arthur Hills golf course. From the moment I first stepped out on it, I could see that it had such 'amazing bones’ and that re-designing the green and bunker complexes would dramatically improve both the visibility and playability of the course.”

Four Phases of Golfing Bliss

PHASE ONE | Cimmarron - Beginning March 2024: Cimmarron (10-18) and the putting green take center stage with a full greens complex makeover, featuring premium G12 Championship Bermuda grass. Bunkers are recontoured, and the irrigation system is upgraded, transforming The Hills Course into a true championship-style marvel.

PHASE TWO | Cimmarron: We're giving the tees a facelift with laser-leveled new turf. Plus, you'll make your golf buddies jealous with newly upgraded fairways. We are currently finalizing the choice of grass for the tee boxes and fairways.

PHASE THREE | Cimmarron - Early Fall 2024: With favorable weather, we plan on a grand reopening celebration for Cimmarron in early October.

PHASE FOUR | Chisholm - Early 2025: The final phase to The Hills Course renovation begins. Chisholm (1-9) and the driving range receive a complete makeover just like Cimmarron, taking your game to the next level.

Hole 12: The bunkers on the left of the fairway will be modified to improve visibility. The green will slide to the right and the hollow left of the green will be softened.

Hole 13: The fairway bunkers will be modified to provide more strategy and a more generous landing area. The green will be redesigned to allow for a bold second shot to run onto the green.
