The Dyes (Still) Have It

Pete and Alice Dye are both well into their 80s, but do you think they put their feet up to relax this summer? Not a chance. The peripatetic couple, who spend their summers in Carmel, Ind. outside Indianapolis, have nearly completed a renovation of Gulf Stream Golf Club near their winter home in Delray Beach, Fla. With advances in equipment, the bunkers on the club’s 1923 Donald Ross-designed layout were out of position and were penalizing higher handicappers. “We have high respect for Mr. Ross’s work, and try to do what he would do were he alive today,” says Alice. Pete is also updating The Golf Club in New Albany, Ohio, a course virtually untouched since he built it in the mid-1960’s; and is revising The Keswick Club in Charlottesville, Va. (above). When they’re not busy with course design work, both Dyes routinely shoot well below their ages. If golf is a prescription for long life, the Dyes are living proof.
