HAPPY BIRTHDAY PETE DYE, enjoy # 91, your have earned it.

Pete Dye along with his wife Alice Dye have designed over 100 courses across the country, and few more outside of America.

Dye and his team have created holes of beauty, and others that give golfers fits.

But as Dye likes to say, most golfers don’t want things easy, they want to earn something.

Below some pictures from our files of the Pete Dye collection.
