Welcome to Planet Golf On-line, the Internet’s most authoritative source for unbiased and accurate golf course information.
We loved this press release announcing the UK's first Dye Designs golf course so much that we decided to republish it here on Planet Golf in full. Conspicuous by its absence, was the name Pete in any of this ‘bringing Dye golf to England’ spin.
No designer or architect was named on the press release, one presumes in order to cultivate the myth that this might actually be a genuine Pete ‘50 championships on my courses’ Dye deal.
Next month the Talisker Australian Masters and the World Cup of Golf will both be held on the Composite Course at Royal Melbourne. It will be the first time in this country since 1988 that major professional events have been held consecutively on the same course. Back then it was the World Cup and the Bicentennial Classic, also hosted by Royal Melbourne.
In advance of the upcoming events, Australian Golf Digest sat down with Royal Melbourne’s course superintendent Richard Forsyth to discuss preparations for the summer of golf, and the responsibility of managing Australia’s most precious piece of golfing real estate.
