How one of the nation’s top golf course superintendents helped The Ford Plantation raise its game.
When the legendary World Golf Hall of Fame architect, Pete Dye, designed the golf course at The Ford Plantation, his goal was to create a course that was fun and playable for golfers at every skill level. The end result was a unique course featuring a parkland style front nine and a links-style back nine, that is unlike any other place in the world.
In 2014, The Ford Plantation Golf Course underwent a $7.5 million renovation with Pete Dye’s direct involvement. It’s not often that an architect has the opportunity to revisit one of his/her creations, and the result was what Pete Dye proudly proclaimed to be his “finest Southern links.” Since then, the golf course has received high praise from numerous golf publications.
