Barefoot Dye, Prestwick Country Club, Legends-Moorland represent the best from Pete, P.B. Dye
Myrtle Beach golf is particularly special because the market features courses designed by many of the game’s most renowned names like Nicklaus, Palmer, Player and Fazio. But perhaps one name stands slightly above the rest in the world of golf course design: Dye.
Pete and P.B. Dye’s tremendous creativity and unparalleled craftsmanship are on full display at three of Myrtle Beach’s best golf facilities, each one with a character that is uniquely Dye.
The course in Myrtle Beach that bears Pete’s name, The Dye Course at Barefoot Resort, opened in 2000 to staggering reviews and is a must-book for all golfers. Known for its visual appeal, the Dye Course’s natural surroundings play a big role in its challenge, with tall grass and unrefined waste areas characteristic of a Pete Sr. design. In addition, humongous fairway bunkers, hills and mounding along with Dye’s famous (or infamous) railroad ties remind you that you are playing a course crafted by one of golf’s most innovative minds.
Scottish-inspired, Prestwick Country Club is a collaboration of Pete and P.B. Dye, marked by all of the design features that make the Dyes great, like strategic bunkering and railroad ties, as well as abundant lakes and natural areas that add to the beauty of the traditional design. Play when the pampas grass is at full length, and you’re in for a visual treat that will have you thinking you’ve left the Lowcountry for the hills of Scotland.
The most difficult of the three courses located on-site at Legends Golf Resort, water is an integral feature incorporated throughout its Moorland course’s par-72 layout. Players will also find rolling, mounding, generously wide fairways along with large, undulating greens that require attention for each and every putt. Moorland remains a top pick for golfers looking for the biggest challenge at Legends. The back nine includes an incredible five-hole finish, including the par-4 16th, which is drivable from all tees and presents a great risk/reward because of an elevated green that punishes players who go for the green and miss it.
The Dye name is legendary, and the father/son duo have left a legendary mark on the Myrtle Beach golf scene. Be sure to check out these truly remarkable golf courses on your fall 2019 trip with MBGolf.com. And don’t forget to book your staying accommodations with Condo-World!
