Architect of Grand Haven Golf Club

The Matthews family is synonymous with Michigan golf and synonymous with Grand Haven Golf Club. Bruce Matthews not only designed and built Grand Haven but he owned the course and lived there. Today, his son, Jerry Matthews continues the family tradition and is a busy golf course architect. The family may have passed the baton but the design philosophy stays the same: create natural and beautiful golf courses fit the land and provide ample challenge for the better player while ensuring that the game is still fun for the mid- to high-handicapper.
Matthews Family Design Philosophy: We are widely recognized for our ability to design an upscale golf course for an affordable price. While this is a slight hindrance in fame and fortune, it is very satisfying to help others.
Our designs reflect a lifetime in golf. We have experienced and know all facets of the golf course business. We have been a superintendent for public and high end private clubs and we have operated a public course for profit. These experiences influence how we design a course. Challenging and beautiful golf courses can still be efficient to build and operate. We create courses that epitomize value.

Your course is a classic. It’s hard to find courses with character and terrific use of natural surroundings. I’ll definitely play your course again the next time I’m in Grand Haven.
