Pete Dye, designer of the TPC Sawgrass, has been selected for the World Golf Hall of Fame. Dye was selected in the Lifetime Achievement Category, and joins architects Donald Ross, Alister Mackenzie and Robert Trent Jones, Sr.
“This is really a surprise,” Dye said. “With all the great people that are in the Hall of Fame, it’s an honor to be part of them because they’ve all given back to the game of golf, and I’m certainly proud to be here as one of them.”
We have a great Pete Dye course near GolfBlogger World Headquarters in Ann Arbor: The University of Michigan’s Radrick Farms. There’s a photo at left, and you can see more photos of this hidden gem here.
