Pete Dye Golf Club
Pete Dye Golf Club, Bridgeport, West Virginia
No. 45 on Golf Digest’s ranking of America’s 100 Greatest Courses and No. 9 on Golfweek’s ranking of the Best Modern Courses, Pete Dye Golf Club ingeniously weaves former coal mining remnants and rambunctious terrain into a course that tempts and tests you from the opening tee shot to your final putt.
Inside the Tour magazine featured the course, and noted, “Many of the natural contours and features of the land are incorporated into the design. Old coal cars line the 10th fairway, some bunkers are pulverized coal. Mine portals, exposed strip-mined high walls, a passageway through a deep mine, a coal tipple and creeks and waterfalls utilizing the mine drainage are but a few examples of Pete’s commitment to the land’s heritage. There is no other course like this in the world.” (Photos courtesy of Pete Dye Golf Club)
