The Front Nine
Pete Dye says that the future of golf lies in its past, specifically in the great traditions of the game. It was with this in mind that the world-renowned golf course architect built The Dye Preserve Golf Club, one of only a few golf courses in the area offering a “core golf” experience.
Golf at The Dye Preserve is steeped in tradition. It encompasses 175 park-like acres enriched by Florida’s native flora and fauna. The 18-hole championship course features the very latest in turf technology for the highest caliber of play. The variety of turf beautifully defines the tee boxes, fairways and greens on each hole.
The hallmark of this private course is its exquisite tranquility. These attributes, increasingly rare in South Florida, maximize the beauty of the cypress breaks, water features and wildlife habitats. Native birds and wildlife are as at home as the members, and on any given day can be seen between every shot.
“The design of a golf course should not be driven by the surrounding real estate or roadway grids,” Dye said. “This course is keyed solely on the game. Designers today should consider preserving and enhancing the natural characteristics of land, creating golf courses that will challenge a player’s skills and spirits as it delights his senses. My inspiration for this course came from golf’s greatest traditional courses.”
