Course architect Pete Dye didn’t reach the pinnacle of his profession by surrendering to challenges. Sure, Dye carved The Pete Dye Course at French Lick into the hillsides of his native Indiana’s rolling bluffs above and behind the historic French Lick (Ind.) Springs Hotel. However, the resort owners, The Cook Group, actually considered a few other well-known designers before choosing Dye. After walking the proposed site, Mt.

After some pondering back home, Dye gathered up an area topographical map and a napkin upon which he sketched preliminary drawings and returned to French Lick, determined to “build the course whether they want me to or not.” The resulting 8,102-yard, par-72 masterpiece — situated at one of Indiana’s highest elevations with stunning, 40-mile panoramic vistas — officially opened in Spring 2009.
