The late, great hall of fame golf course architect Pete Dye left his mark on golf courses around the world. The hall of fame golf course architect’s footprint was especially strong in the state where he and his late wife Alice lived for decades — Indiana. It was so strong that seven of Dye’s finest creations were bundled together to form a golf destination appropriately named the Pete Dye Golf Trail.
While Michigan in the summer, Florida in the winter and the Carolinas in the spring and the fall are popular golfing hotspots, the Pete Dye Golf Trail in Indiana provides golfers with everything they want and need in a golfing getaway, in the spring, summer and fall.
In the recently completed booklet, The Pete Dye Golf Trail: Back Home in Indiana, Wellington-based golf writer Mike May provides a short description of those seven designs. Each editorial vignette contains the web site, physical address and telephone number for each golf course on the list. The booklet is posted on IndianaGolf.com at www.indianagolf.com/news/Golf.Pete.Dye.Trail.Indiana.Booklet.pdf.
In addition to an editorial description of each golf course, the booklet contains a number of images from the seven layouts, which are built on a variety of landscapes.
During May’s fact-finding editorial rounds of golf along the Pete Dye Golf Trail, he wore golf gloves from Bionic Glove, golf shoes from New Balance Athletic Shoe and socks from Gold Toe Golf Socks.
The Pete Dye Golf Trail: Back Home in Indiana is May’s fifth golf guide/publication. His other publications are: A Pint and a Pork Pie: The ’83 Open Championship, England’s Atlantic Links: An Irresistible Golf Destination, The Top 10 of Hoosier Golf: Ten of Central & Southern Indiana’s Top Public Golf Destinations and Golf in Kent: The Crown Jewel of English Golf. Currently, he is working on The Hoosier State’s Top Golf Destinations: 25 of Indiana’s Finest Public-Access Golf Courses.
May is a correspondent for Golf Central Magazine, Ohio Golf Journal, GoGolfandTravel.com, Midwest Golfing Magazine, GolfTrips.com, GolfDaily.com, Golf Oklahoma and Tri-State Golfer Magazine.
