Pete Dye (1967) / Pete Dye (R 2013)

The golf club, built in 1966, is perhaps the most authentic form of Pete Dye's transition to design, when he first chooses to change his convention and start designing schemes. of land like the ones he had seen during a tour of Scotland in 1963.. In doing so, Dye has reintroduced deception, misjudgements and rail links into the architecture of American golf. Its construction caught the attention of young Jack Nicklaus, who has made several trips and made some clever suggestions. This led to a five-year Dye-Nicklaus design partnership. The golf club remained intact for 45 years, until in 2014, when his younger son, PB Dye rebuilt each hole by modestly adjusting some of its original architecture, but by restoring many lost bunkers over the years .

"Beautiful aesthetics. Pete Dye's signature railway sleepers are present on a number of holes, while integrating perfectly into the landscaping and hole design. "

"I like the way Pete Dye consulted Jack Nicklaus, then 27, for his opinion on shooting values. Mission accomplished. Columbus feels that most people in town (14 km) do not even know she is there. "

"Recent changes in 2013 have improved playability without affecting shooting values. Another second course. Of course, the course has aged well and remains a good test, with subtle greens and very strategic approach shots, often hidden by Dye's charming lines. "

"Make sure to try the homemade cookies at the turn – homemade and to die for!"
