Casa de Campo, La Romana
Pete Dye's Teeth of Dog is a sublime routing from his early days in design that is simply one of the most enjoyable 18 holes on the planet.
This place words can hardly describe. I have played great courses like Bethpage Black and Erin Hills and this place takes the cake.
Hilton Head Island, South Carolina
When you don't play that well but still fall in love with a course, you know it's special. Pete Dye Classic.
French Lick, Indiana
The Dye Course at French Lick is everything you expect a Pete Dye course to be. It challenges your eye. It provokes a little self-pity.
Kiawah Island, South Carolina
Big Pete Dye fan. Have played his courses all over the country. Ocean Course was on the bucket list.
Las Vegas, Nevada
I absolutely love this course, was well worth the trip outside of Vegas! I found it much more enjoyable than typical Adesert golf.
this is one of my favorite Pete Dye layouts. Tough but fair is the way to describe the design and how the course plays. Classic Dye elements are everywhere from coffin bunkers to sharp drop-offs next to the greens to railroad ties.
La Quinta, California
Just unique and fun, but expect to make some bad scores on at least a few holes.
It's about as visually stimulating of a golf course as there is, between the many long canyon carries, Dye's bunker and green shaping, gorgeous backdrops, neighboring mansions, the lake and of course, Pennybacker Bridge. It commands your full attention every step of the way. Take Dead Aim.
our final round of our Wisconsin adventure, following Erin Hills, both courses at Whistling Straits, and Meadow Valleys. This course was right at home in that lofty company. In some ways, it may have been my favorite.
