Westhaven Golf Club is the perfect place for golf enthusiasts of all levels to enjoy the game in a casual and friendly environment. In the short time since its opening in 2009, the Westhaven Golf Club’s course has received national recognition for its design and attention to detail including being named to GolfWeek and Golf Digest "2010 Best New Courses" lists. The 18-hole core golf course blends seamlessly with the surrounding hills and ridgelines of western Williamson County — its natural character as remarkable as the manicured fairways and greens.
The Westhaven Golf Club was designed by renowned architects Arthur Hills, Steve Forrest and Associates as a core golf course. The course plays to a par 72 and measures 7,000 yards from the championship tee. This challenging layout boasts five sets of tees, bent grass greens and numerous bunkers to test all skill levels. To allow members a true golfing experience, the course has been configured separately from the neighborhood so that there are no homes lining the golf course which allows players to focus on the game. We welcome you to take a tour and learn more about our beautiful course and clubhouse.
Arthur Hills Philosophy
Golf course architect Arthur Hills has always admired traditional golf courses, such as Pinehurst #2, Shinnecock Hills, Cypress Point, Prairie Dunes, Seminole, Merion and Inverness. Taking a historic approach to every course he designs, his goal is to exceed expectations of beauty, preservation of natural features, strategic design and quality of construction. To that end, he includes elements which make for a fair and balanced course that is both aesthetically pleasing and strategically sound.
