The legendary Pete Dye, is a golfer turned golf architect as he fell in love with more than just the game. Although he was a champion golfer, Dye’s interest was really in the design and aesthetics of the course itself. He is a legend in the field of golf course design and construction throughout the expanding world of golf and has established a reputation for unique, environmentally friendly, and renowned, resort and public golf courses.
Innovative and deeply inspired by his 1963 visit to Scotland, Dye has over 100 courses to his name, many of which have hosted numerous PGA TOUR and LPGA events. Some of his more notable courses include River Course at Black Wolf Run, Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass, and Ocean Course at Kiawah Island. Now in his 80’s Dye continues to deliver to golfers some of the most challenging courses in the world.
Built in 1971, the Harbourtowne golf course is an 18-hole, Par 70 course on the Chesapeake Bay waterfront. Harboutowne’s course is not unlike other Dye courses in that it incorporates some of the elements which are so characteristic of Dye. Trademark elements include high grass, deep bunkers, walls built of railroad ties and carefully constructed rough. The first nine holes are fairly wide open with bordering out of bounds residences, some water hazards and tall grass, while the back 9 are rather tight and tree-lined. Whether a rookie or golf pro, this course is sure to provide a fun yet challenging round of golf.
There’s still time to take advantage of Harbourtowne’s winter golf rate and experience Dye’s work firsthand. From now until 4/21/13, purchase an off season golf package for $199.98 per person for 2 nights, 3 days in a waterfront guest room, 3 rounds of golf with cart, continental breakfast and gratuity each morning.
