The work at Mistwood, which includes the original design and a recent renovation and restoration, has garnered numerous design awards and media accolades in the past three years.  His redesign work at Mistwood also won one of the ASGCA’s prestigious Design Excellence Awards in 2014.

Hearn is proud of the hands-on attention he is able to give to each project his company takes on.


“It’s important that we are on the site often for the attention to detail, which means travel and a busy schedule,” Hearn said. “It’s exciting though to be part of such great projects. We’ve been fortunate to work with some great people and great clubs, and we look forward to our work in the future with more great people and great clubs. Golf course design is our work, but also our passion and we try to reflect that in every project.”
