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.
The Colleton River Pete Dye Course has unobstructed views of Port Royal Sound and the Atlantic Ocean from 11 of its 18 holes. Stretching over 7,300 yards, it plays through dense Lowcountry forest as well as open scenic wetlands—and common to many of Dye's designs, it features small, undulating greens that are well-protected by pot bunkers.
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.
