MORE ON THE PETE DYE COURSE
His vision has now been etched into the hilltops near West Baden Springs Hotel, and in June 2009 the 18-hole Pete Dye Course at French Lick opened as one of the premier championship Indiana golf courses. Having built golf courses all over the world including great coastal sites, this course arguably could be considered Dye's best inland site offering golfers 40-mile panoramic views of the countryside.
Dye aimed for this to be a "walkable" course, and golfers are sure to feel Dye's signature sting as they tee off from vista- to-vista on this 18-hole masterpiece. The Pete Dye Golf Course at French Lick will play host to the 2015 Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid.
LAST TIME ON THE LINKS
Freshman Jessica Porvasnik recorded a hole-in-one earlier this season, utilizing an 8-iron to ace a 163-yard par-3 at the Westbrook Spring Invitational.
