"...I have had Ron involved on our Prairie Club Golf and now our Valentine project, both in the Sandhills of Nebraska. His efforts in green construction & project management are to be applauded! I wouldn't hesitate having him involved in a future project...."

The Golf Club at Red Rock -  Rapid City, South Dakota  USA

"...perhaps the best ground hugging golf course built on a mountain side since Crenshaw & Coore’s Plantation course in Hawaii."

—Ron Whitten, Golf Course Architecture Critic, Golf Digest


"Ron was the designer and project manager for The Golf Club at Red Rock.  Our direction to Ron was to build the best 18 holes he could conceive while meeting the demands of the housing development.  Ron met this challenge by building a championship golf course that was rated in the top 30 best new golf courses in the US when opened in 2004 and has been rated the top public golf course in South Dakota every year since.  The course while challenging appeals to a broad range of players and abilities which has contributed to the Golf Club at Red Rock being a commercial success as well as a design success."

St. Andrews Links Trust Golf Academy - Haikou
Haikou City, Hainan, China

"Our Academy outfield was designed and shaped by Ron and his team. The project was completed ahead of schedule and he delivered all of our design wishes. Ron even went the extra mile to build a “Road Hole Bunker” replica for us with the exact dimensions and feel of the original bunker in St. Andrews, Scotland. The end result is a fantastic range and short game area that compliments the rest of our facilities here. In summary, Ron has an amazing depth of knowledge and combines this with great enthusiasm. Anyone who is lucky enough to have Ron on their team will really benefit from his work."

"Ron Farris has been a friend and colleague of mine for more than 30 years. He is of the highest character and has a great deal of talent and vast experience in golf course design and construction. Ron has worked side by side with some of the finest architects of all time, and when combined with his terrific personality, Ron provides a level of expertise and professionalism that is hard to match. I would gladly recommend Ron for any golf course design or construction endeavor you may be considering."
