Perry Maxwell kicks off our list with three courses in America's Greatest 100, including No. 12, Crystal Downs, which Maxwell built in 1931 with the help of the legendary Alister MacKenzie. Maxwell also spawned another great architect, his son Press, who would go on to redesign his 25th ranked Prairie Dunes. Perry's accomplishments are rounded out with Southern Hills C.C. at No. 30.
