Gregory B. Muirhead was born and raised in Indianapolis. He discovered golf and learned the game as an avid junior golfer at Crooked Stick Golf Club in Carmel, Indiana. He'd always known since he was a child that he wanted to pursue a career in golf architecture. And indeed, after meeting course architect Pete Dye at Crooked Stick, Greg enrolled in Ball State University's College of Architecture and Planning. He graduated in 1984 with both a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture and a Bachelor of Science in Architecture specializing in the field of environmental design.
Greg showed his dedication to the sport by completing two internships while attending Ball State. He assisted with the construction of the Pete Dye designed Austin Country Club in Austin, Texas, and then later, he again helped with constructing a Dye course in Denver. In late 1984, Pete and Alice Dye assisted Greg in securing his current position with Rees Jones, Inc.
Greg has since been involved in the design or redesign of various daily-fee, resort, and private facilities throughout North America, Africa, and Asia. His designs are known for their natural, links-style layouts with rolling fairways and extensively contoured greens that challenge all players.
Greg joined the American Society of Golf Course Architects (ASGCA) as an Associate Member in 1987. He was elected a Regular Member in 1989, and in 2006 Greg was chosen as President of the group. He's also held the positions of Immediate Past-President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary, and Membership Chairman for the ASGCA. In addition, Greg has served on the ASGCA Board of Governors for two three-year periods and recently co-chaired the group's Strategic Planning Committee.
