Charles Hugh Alison (5 March 1883 – 20 October 1952) was a British golf course architect. He worked predominantly with Harry Colt, John Morrison, and Alister MacKenzie, in 1928 forming Colt, Alison & Morrison Ltd. He also played four first-class cricket matches for Somerset County Cricket Club between 1902 and 1905.
One of Alison's most-respected designs is Milwaukee Country Club (1929), co-designed with Colt, which was ranked among the Top 50 golf courses in America by Golf Digest in 2007. Another endearing Colt-Alison design is Century Country Club (1927) in Purchase, New York. On 26 April 1922, The New York Times announced that Colt, MacKenzie & Alison of London would be developing the new Century golf course on 180 acres (0.73 km2) of pristine countryside. The course's architects are listed as Colt and Alison but MacKenzie's influence is imbued throughout the 18 holes.
