Designed by Pete Dye and Perry Dye, the course at Plum Creek Golf Club hosted the Denver Champions of Golf event on the Champions Tour from 1984 to 1987.
It took more than ten years from conception to delivery but seasoned commentators will tell you that Pete and Perry Dye’s course at Pound Ridge Golf Club was well worth the decade-long gestation period.
In 2002, Pete Dye’s Canyon course was the first of two 18-hole layouts to open for play at the Promontory Club. The front nine holes are laid out in open terrain whilst the shorter back nine climbs into more hilly territory.
The facility at Riverdale has two 18-hole golf courses for public play but it’s the Dunes layout that garners all the plaudits. Pete and Perry Dye designed the course in a Scottish links style in the mid-1980s, with Tom Doak also having a hand in the construction of several holes.
Royal Links Golf Club was envisaged as a tribute to the links game played at layouts on the Open rota (both past and present) in Britain, with holes inspired by the likes of the world famous “Postage Stamp” at Royal Troon and the “Road Hole” on the Old course at St Andrews.
The New golf course at the San Roque Club may be one of the finest new layouts in Europe and certainly one of the most beautiful.
Laid out by Perry Dye, the course at Southern Hills Golf and Country Club is set in the south of the country, near the border with Malaysia, where fairways are routed along a narrow river valley which is surrounded by dense jungle.
Originally fashioned in 1988 by a duo of Dye’s – Pete and his son Perry – the rather exclusive course at The Farms Golf Club was softened by former U.S. Amateur Champion, John Fought, in 2000.
Said to be the most expensive golf course constructed at a reputed cost of around $250m, the cliff top layout at Trump National Los Angeles was designed by Pete and Perry Dye from the remains of the Ocean Trails Golf Club…
Woo Jeong Hills Country Club was opened in 1993 and is as close as you can find in Asia to a big, brutish, US tournament golf course.
