Our lead designer, John Houck, has solo-designed more disc golf courses than anyone working today. What sets him apart is not the quantity of his work, but the quality. Players recognize his name and make an extra effort to visit his courses. John’s signature in the disc golf industry is the innovation and creativity that he brings to each course that he designs. When it was time to take disc golf to a new level, the PDGA, Professional Disc Golf Association
chose John Houck to be head designer at the prestigious International Disc Golf Center in Augusta, Georgia.
From neighborhood parks to major multi-course facilities, John has been a leader in disc golf course design. His series of articles on the subject have helped educate hundreds of aspiring designers. John’s love for disc sports shows in every course he works on. If he’s working on your project, he won’t leave until he’s convinced he’s created the best course possible on your property.
At the end of 2017, John was the designer of the #1,#2, #7 & #17 ranked disc golf courses in the world, out of over 8,000 courses worldwide, according to player reviews on DGCourseReview.com

John says, “I am extremely grateful to all the players who appreciate my designs and travel to go play them. I am humbled by the support and kindness from everyone. I have been working in this industry as far back as I can remember, and it's been a privilege to not have had any other occupation. In 2021, I plan to keep innovating designs and have some great projects ahead. As always, nothing happens without my wife and partner, Dee. She's the one who has devoted herself to craving the path for all disc golf course designers in the industry. Thanks to her, I’ve been able to take part in some amazing projects. Thank you everyone from the bottom of my heart, and here’s to great 2021 and beyond for all of us!”
HouckDesign is happy to travel anywhere in the world to bring our unique designs for all to enjoy.
