U.S.: Pete Dye 8,100-yard course set for April opening

Recently inducted World Golf Hall of Fame architect Pete Dye will open his new Pete Dye course at French Lick Resort in his native Indiana on April 24.
The resort golf facilities currently include a 1907-vintage Tom Bendelow course and a Donald Ross design that followed 10 years later.
The new Dye course includes tees that can stretch its length to more than 8,100 yards.
Dye, who still lives in Indiana much of the year, described the French Lick site as “arguably the best inland site I have ever worked.”
French Lick, long known for its historic Pluto Mineral Springs, is also the hometown of legendary basketball player Larry Bird.

Another fine example of mindless design at it best! Just another egocentric architect who has no idea of what the game needs to succeed. No wonder the game continues to go, down, down, down.
