Saw this news yesterday:

http://www.nbcsandiego.com/news/local/Golf-Legend-Johnny-Miller-Signs-On-for-Redesigns-at-Warner-Springs-Ranch-440542543.html

Interesting news that I'm excited for. Not a big fan of Miller as an announcer, but I do like his course designs (crazy greens and all). The course has a great setting and layout foundation, so it will be cool to see what they can do with a proper renovation.

I'm familiar with some of Miller's designs.

Anyone know of a re-design he did in the Southwest? Just to look at before/after philosophy.

It's now closed, but he did Badlands in Las Vegas. The original 18 holes are target, desert style golf. Then they added 9 more holes, winding through a high end community, that is a more traditional layout in the desert. Still has barrancas, forced carries, etc, but not as crazy as the original 18 holes.

He also owns Silverado in Napa, and I'm sure his design influences are on the course. But that is more parkland style layout.

It will be interesting to see the property once the whole resort is completed. Sounds like a great concept.

And it's a sure bet that once the project has been completed and new scorecards printed, they'll read as follows: "Redesign by Johnny Miller, first player to shoot 63 in the U.S. Open...and on a much tougher layout than what Justin Thomas faced at Erin Hills".
