A visionary golf course developer/architect, Marion Hollins became a pioneer of the sport.
A standout golfer who won the 1921 U.S. Women’s Amateur and served as captain of the first-ever U.S. Curtis Cup team, she would shift her attention by contributing to the development of the Monterey Peninsula into a golf mecca.
She made significant contributions to Cypress Point Club, and then founded and oversaw the development of Pasatiempo Golf Course. Fellow Hall of Fame member – Alister MacKenzie – credits Hollins with the idea for the iconic 16th hole at Cypress Point, with her suggesting it be played as a par-3 (instead of a par-4).
Later, in collaboration with MacKenzie and Bobby Jones, she provided her influence on the development of Augusta National Golf Club.
