Simply put, golf will never look quite the same thanks to world renowned Pete Dye, the former decorated amateur golfer who turned his attention to golf course design. Dye is considered to be one of the most influential golf course architects in the world today. His designs are known for their distinctive features that include small greens and the use of railroad ties to brace bunkers.
Infamy and total respect sums up Dye’s design reputation as they will both outrage you and truly amaze you. Did you know that, more than any other architect, Dye’s designs always find their way onto the PGA Tour schedule, including the PGA Championship, which is being hosted at the Ocean Course atKiawah Island,South Carolinathis week?
We are very fortunate to have two Dye designs inMyrtle Beach, the Dye course at the Barefoot Golf Resort and Prestwick Country Club. Both of these fine layouts bring many moments of puzzling joy to our golfing clientele and I’m sure an equal amount of angry outbursts as they navigate their way around the golf course.
The Pete Dye layout at Barefoot is a course that you will long remember, a visually stunning design filled with penalties for wayward shots that have become synonymous with the Dye name. The Dye Course is the only semi-private facility at Barefoot Resort. Play this beauty from the appropriate set of tees and you will absolutely enjoy your round of golf.
Another Dye masterpiece, Prestwick Country Club has already been recognized as one of the Grand Strand’s finest golf courses. Featuring Dogwood lined fairways, thirty five foot grass mounding(s), dazzling wildflowers, railroad tie rimmed bunkers, freshwater lakes and winding streams. The golf course features six sets of tees and will thrill any golfer.
Dye’s uncanny ability to include short and medium length par fours in his designs is very evident. His re-introduction of drivable par fours has made the game so much more exciting to play and watch.
