Pete Dye, one of the most influential and creative golf course designers in the recent history, masterminded the Pete Dye Canyon Golf Course at Promontory. Heavily influenced by the rumpled fairways and deep pot bunkers of Scotland, Pete Dye is a pure artist who is able to sculpt dirt into incredible landforms, and create beautiful yet often maddening golf holes.
“Pete Dye’s designs typically play brutally tough for the better player, yet surprisingly enjoyable for the average golfer. Easy escapes from bunkers, open run up areas in the front of greens and limited forced carries from the correct tees are staples of Dye creations.”
The Dye Canyon Course stretches to 7,700 yards from the tips, which is way more length than most mortals can handle, but play this one from an acceptable yardage and you will be grinning from ear to ear.
