The Back Nine
“The Dye looks and feels more like a course in the low country of Georgia or South Carolina,” said Joe Webster, president and managing partner. “The Dye Preserve is the benchmark of quality play in Florida, catering entirely to the ardent golfer. The minimal intrusion of nearby homes and the technical challenges of a Pete Dye course – all within 30 minutes of Palm Beach International Airport – are enticing to golfers in search of an enhanced experience.”
Along with Dye’s precision hole design, the historic traditions of golf that date back to the 15th century take center stage at The Dye. The club’s members are guaranteed the luxury of play, as reserved tee times are not required. Experienced, professional caddies accompany players walking the course, which features unobtrusive soft cart paths of crushed coquina. Natural buffers protect players from the distractions that are often associated with modern courses.
Among the many aspects that set The Dye apart from other golf clubs is its 20,000-square-foot clubhouse, a finalist in Golf Inc. magazine’s 2007 Clubhouse Competition private club category. The warm, inviting lodge-inspired clubhouse features a dedicated library displaying Pete Dye memorabilia, coral rock foundation and terraces, and spacious, outdoor porch views of the 9th and 18th greens.
Pete Dye has designed more than 75 landmark courses, which have been host to some of golf’s most highly recognized tournaments, such as the Ryder Cup, the PGA Championship and The Players Championship.
