Pete Dye made a name for himself in the 1980s and 1990s by building many courses in Florida on land that was poorly suited for golf, demonstrating time and time again that he could build something from nothing. However, what goes underappreciated is that he excelled with good land. Be it The Golf Club or here in Kohler, Dye had a fine ability to route holes in a manner that included a property’s best natural features. Its sister course, Whistling Straits, has become more famous, but that doesn’t mean it is better.
