Chris Wilczynski, Course Architecht

Chris Wilczynski


A graduate of Michigan State University and a member of the Society of Golf Course Architects since 2005, Chris formed CW Golf Architecture in 2010 after two productive award winning decades at Arthur Hills/Steve Forrest and Associates.

During his tenure there, as lead architect, he was responsible for a host of original designs and renovations which garnered national design plaudits including Red Hawk Golf Club in Tawas, Michigan; Black Gold Golf Club in Yorba Linda, California; Wolfdancer Golf Club in Austin, Texas; and Westhaven Golf Club in Franklin, Tennessee.

Chris believes in always pushing the design envelope and working hand-in-hand with each client to deliver super designs that bring out the natural beauty of the land. His design here at Esplanade Naples is a wonderful example of that design philosophy while being fun for golfers of all abilities.
