Outstanding Architect Perry Dye Laid Out Our Golf Course

Perry Dye is the elder son in the third generation of a family of golf architects that got its start in 1922 when his grandfather designed and constructed a nine-hole golf course in Urbana, Ohio. This is where Perry’s father, Peter Dye, grew up and received his early training.carts.jpg The Dye family heritage started in the Midwestern United States and has carried on from generation to generation in providing the foundation for the creation of some of the world’s finest golf courses.

Perry Dye began his apprenticeship under his father at age 12 and continued working on courses in the Midwest until the early 1970s. Then while in college, Perry worked on the construction of several well known courses such as Oak Tree Golf Club in Edmond, Okla., the Country Club of Colorado in Colorado Springs and Casa de Campo in the Dominican Republic. His full-time work in golf course design and construction began in the 1980s with such courses as Plum Creek Golf & Country Club in Castle Rock, Colorado and Rancho Santa Fe Farms Golf Club in Rancho Santa Fe, Calif. Among courses he has work on are Copper Creek Golf Club and Englewood Golf Course in Colorado, Luana Hills Country Club in Kailua, Oahu, and Desert Pines and Royal Links in Las Vegas.

His firm, Dye Designs, expanded its international work starting in 1986 and has created many courses in Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, Korea, Australia, Austria, Spain, Germany, Brazil and Mexico.

In 1986, Perry Dye was accepted into the prestigious American Society of Golf Course Architects and is unique among golf course architects in his participation and support of the Golf Course Builders Association of America.
