Profile

The son of legendary architect Pete Dye, Perry Dye followed his dad into the course design business but unfortunately without quite making the same impact on the industry as his famous father. The most disappointing aspect of Perry and P.B Dye’s work is not the missing creative genius so regularly displayed on Pete’s courses, but the continual copying of Pete Dye holes on their designs.

Perry Dye has built substandard copies of the famous 17th at TPC Sawgrass on courses like Klagenfurt in Austria and Woo Jeong Hills in South Korea, the latter an ordinary hole with a big flat green surrounded by sand and played from a lengthy and elevated tee with a wood instead of a wedge.
