Prior to opening Paul Miller Design, Inc. in July of 2004, Paul was a partner at Gill Miller, Inc. At Gill Miller his design portfolio included The Legends Club and The Meadows at Mystic Lake, that were both named top ten new golf courses nationwide by Golf Digest magazine. At Highland Park National Golf Course in St. Paul he incorporated the “Snoopy” hole in the redesign of the golf course to pay homage to Charles Schultz, who learned to play golf and caddied at Highland National.
Completed projects include the major renovation of Otter Creek Golf Course in Ankeny Iowa, with a new clubhouse, a completely renovated golf course, practice range, parking lot, and entrance drive that are all part of a 357 acre mixed use development. The Mayor of Ankeny called the plan, "one of the most imaginative, creative, out-of-the-box plans I've ever seen." Paul Miller coordinated the design and construction efforts that were required to bring this 12 million dollar project to a successful conclusion through two construction seasons that were marked with intense rain events that challenged everyone involved.
