Hill has described his personal involvement with golf course architecture as beginning with the participation in the development of the golf course routing plan and the generation of design and grading concepts that are relative to the strategy of individual holes. Throughout the design process, Hill gets involved in the construction, promotion and provides on-going consultation even after the golf course has opened.
Myrtle Beach has the honor of an Arthur Hill golf course, the Pine Hills Course at Myrtlewood. This golf course is one of the best in Myrtle Beach and was even voted by Golf Digest in 1997 as one of the top 10 layout courses in the entire area. It is also one of the most sought after courses on the Grand Strand today. A modern masterpiece, it has Bentgrass greens, contoured fairways and strategic bunkers that create a beautiful and challenging course that has hosted some very big events for golf. There are also practice facilities, putting greens, a chipping area, a target range and an 8,000 square foot clubhouse that serves all the needs of the golfers who come out to this excellent course. Truly, a masterpiece in Myrtle Beach golf.
