Did you know?

In 1923 the Duke of Devonshire commissioned Dr Alister MacKenzie (whose work includes Augusta National) to design a new 18 hole course on undulating and partially wooded farmland on the Duke’s estate outside Buxton. The course was to replace a 9-hole course, which the Duke wished to redevelop as a site for new housing. Cavendish was opened in 1925, becoming very popular with visitors to Buxton, who came to take the hydropathic treatments at the town’s spa baths.

Tournaments:
The American Express formerly known as the Desert Classic, and for many years played as the Bob Hope Desert Classic, will once again be decided on the Pete Dye designed Stadium course at PGA West (Jan 16-19).
The Players Championship:  for the 39th time, TPC Sawgrass, another iconic Pete Dye design, will host The Players Championship for one of the richest first prizes in world golf (March 12-15).
 
Who's Who: 
Pete Dye:  one of the greatest golf course architects of this or any generation passes away aged 94. His contribution to golf course design, and the legacy he leaves is immense.
Jack Nicklaus:  like Pete Dye a native of Ohio, actually started his golf course design career working together with Dye. In 1967 Dye asked Nicklaus to input to his design for The Golf Club in Columbus, Ohio. Two years later they worked together on the revered Harbour Town Golf Links in South Carolina.
