Biography

Greg Muirhead
Greg Muirhead

Greg Muirhead is a native of Indianapolis, Indiana, who discovered golf and learned the game as an avid junior golfer at Crooked Stick GC. Certain that he wanted to pursue a career in golf architecture and after meeting famed architect Pete Dye to discuss the profession, Greg enrolled in the College of Architecture & Planning at Ball State University and graduated with both Bachelor of Landscape Architecture and B.S. in Environmental Design degrees.

While attending Ball State, Greg completed two internships assisting with the construction of the Pete Dye designed, Austin CC in Austin, Texas. After graduation, Greg assisted with the construction of a Dye course in Denver, Colorado. In late 1984, Pete and Alice Dye helped Greg secure his current position with Rees Jones, Inc.

In addition, Greg’s co-designs have hosted over 60 PGA and LPGA Tour events.

Greg became a member of the American Society of Golf Course Architects (ASGCA) in 1987 and served as the organization’s President in 2006.
