Russ Myers, former superintendent at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Okla., recently resigned from his post to join Hanse Golf Course Design.

Hanse restored the course in 2019 prior to the 2021 Senior PGA Championship and 2022 PGA Championship.

Myers hosted a pair of PGA Championships at Southern Hills, once in 2007 and again in 2022. He also served as superintendent at Los Angeles Country Club from 2009 to 2015.

“I feel like we all go through phases in our career. The superintendent career has been good to me,” Myers says. “There was a point when I was introduced to the guys (at Hanse Golf Course Design) and I really enjoyed working with them. I felt that joining their team is a good opportunity for me to learn more, and to also move into the next phase of my career.”

The club has begun a search for its next superintendent, according to general manager Nick Sidorakis. Myers will begin his role with Hanse Design in October, with an end date for his time at Southern Hills not yet determined. Myers says he will continue to live in Tulsa after his move to Hanse’s firm.
