Garrett Gill, MLA, ASGCA, ASLA
Garrett grew up in the golf business. His father, David Gill, was a successful golf course architect based in St. Charles, Illinois. Together they completed numerous golf course projects across the Midwest including 18 hole designs for Meadowbrook Links in Rapid City, South Dakota and Hulman Links in Terre Haute, Indiana. Both golf courses have been ranked in the Top 50 Public Golf Courses by Golf Digest Magazine.
Williams & Gill ~ Gill Miller ~ Gill Design Inc
In 1985, Garrett and golf course architect George Williams formed Williams & Gill. Together, they completed projects across the United States for American Golf and Golf Enterprise companies (Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Nevada, North Carolina, Georgia, New Jersey and Missouri). Next, he teamed up with Paul Miller to design White Eagle in North Hudson, Wisconsin and other gems across Minnesota, Illinois and Iowa. Over the years, the roster of associates and partners have changed but the philosophy has remained the same - traditional design principles with a flair for innovation.
