A fitting sendoff for a legendary figure
Pete Dye will go down as one of the greatest and most influential golf course architects of all time. And while the Links at Perry Cabin, his final design, may not be in quite the same conversation as his most famous works, it is nevertheless a lovely, fond farewell that members and visitors will enjoy.
Laid out over the routing of a previously underwhelming design, the Links wanders out in a big loop from the site of its future clubhouse, with holes in both meadow and forest settings. The transitions are smooth, making the golfer feel transported, rather than dragged, from one environment to another. Rough growing conditions in 2018 set the course back somewhat with its conditioning, but both the expertise and the budget should have it in impeccable shape in 2019 and beyond.
The course has all the major Dye signifiers - pot bunkers, visual trickery and a general mischievous air - but it also sports some of Dye's boldest greens, including the final one, a massive two-tiered stunner. It caps off the course's - and Dye's - "Goodnight Kiss" to his fans.
