“I’d heard many good things about Rayburn Country since the redesign and it all proved to be on target.  The other players were thoroughly impressed. They turned that into a great golf course.  It’s probably in the top three we’ll play. I just thought they did everything right from that magnificent clubhouse to a layout that really makes you think about the shot you are going to hit.  The routing was basically the same as the old course, but there are a lot more bunkers, the fairways are terrific and the greens have a lot more undulation.  If you miss to the wrong part of the greens, you really get penalized.  To turn what they had into that is a huge credit.  I would think it will be a regular stop on the Adams Tour for years to come.”

Since opening, Rayburn Country Golf Club has received exceptional reviews according to head pro Paul Calame.  “We are the most excited by comments on the ‘variety of shots they get to make in a round’ and how that makes [playing Rayburn] “a truly fun experience.”
-- Paul Calame, head pro, Rayburn Country Golf Club.
They were “the best design team I’ve worked with in my entire golf course construction and grow-in career.”  “Excellent in all categories.”

“Randy was the architect for my golf course project, ShadowGlen Golf Club, which began construction in 2001.  ShadowGlen was later selected by GolfDigest as one of the Top Ten Most Affordable Public Courses in America in 2004.  We have continued to receive recognition for various other design features from golf and media sources since opening.  As an owner, as well as a golf course contractor, I believe one of the strongest points of my recommendation is the fact that not only did Randy do an excellent job designing our course but designed it in such a way that we have been able to grow our business and retain our goals for the property...Randy’s knowledge of the game, respect for design intent for our specific property as well as ability to work with all parties involved at ShadowGlen Golf Club have made him a very valuable asset to our organization.”
--  Frank G. Hutchinson, III, Owner, ShadowGlen Golf Club

As a contractor, I know that I can bid Randy’s jobs 10% less than any other job, because the quality of his drawings ensure that changes in the field will be minimal.
