LDS Golf Legend Johnny Miller to Redesign Golf Course Where Mormon Battalion Camped

"The story of the Mormon Battalion is about ordinary people who accomplished incredible things through their obedience, service, sacrifice and faith," Elder Michael F. Hemingway said. "They followed the prophet, even when it was very hard. They went through tremendous hardships, but kept going."

Johnny Miller likes taking old, worn-down properties and bringing them back to life.

The Mormon and former golf pro turned course architect has delighted in restoring several notable ranch properties. Now his design group is taking on something different — a golf course with a historic Latter-day Saint twist.

Miller recently agreed to help redesign and improve parts of the Warner Springs Ranch Golf Club in Warner Springs, a scenic, rural place near San Diego where the Mormon Battalion once camped.
