Renowned Golf Course Architects Pete Dye and Alice Dye Honored at Long Cove Club

HILTON HEAD ISLAND (October 9, 2015) –Traditional Bagpipes rang out as members of Long Cove Clubgathered near the 18th green of this private championship course for a Dedication Ceremony honoring world-renown golf course architects, Pete Dye and Alice Dye, in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina on Friday, October 9, 2015. The Dyes were honored for the impact they have had on golf and golf course architecture and recognized for their creation of Long Cove Club’s nationally acclaimed golf course.

The Dedication Ceremony included remarks by Steve Smyers, President of the American Society of Golf Course Architects, Bobby Weed, golf course architect and former construction crew chief for the Long Cove Club course project in 1980 and David Ames, one of the Founders of Long Cove Club. They spoke of the Dyes’ comprehensive work in golf course design and, in particular, complimented them on their “spectacular design” of the Long Cove Club Golf Course.

The Ceremony highlight was the unveiling of the Dyes’ Plaque and the dedication of the “Pete Dye Clock”, a newly installed signature tower clock. The Dyes’ Plaque is a sculpture relief bronze plague commissioned in the Dyes’ likeness. It is positioned at the base of the clock, which is surrounded by several other bronze plagues with quotes by noted golf writers, course architects and top players on the excellence and uncompromising quality of the Dyes’ design of the Long Cove Golf Course.

Pete and Alice Dye, both of whom are in their late eighties, are considered to be among the most influential golf course architects in the world. Among the many outstanding golf courses they have designed are the championship courses at Whistling Straits, Crooked Stick, TPC Sawgrass, The Golf Club, Harbour Town Golf Links and the Ocean Course at Kiawah.
