Very honored to be presented with the ASGCA Design Excellence Recognition Program Award. As one of my favorite golf courses I have had the privilege work on, Colleton will always be special to me.
When built new, Tim Liddy was the project architect for Pete Dye on this private golf course in Bluffton, South Carolina. Tim continues to work with the golf club on a consulting basis with Mr Dye.
When the course opened in 1999, it was selected by Golf Digest as "One of the Top Ten New Courses in the U.S." and was later selected by GOLF Magazine as "One of the Top 100 Greatest Courses in the U.S." Pete Dye calls it "the best course I have ever built."
The Dye course regularly hosts major tournaments like the South Carolina Amateur, US Amateur Qualifier, and the US Open Qualifier.
