Pete Dye designed his namesake course at the sprawling Colleton River Plantation on the coast of South Carolina in 1998, and it immediately earned notice as one of Golf Digest's Top Ten New Courses. The location, on an estuary amid extensive wetlands, can be austere—part of Prince of Tides was shot in the area—but some of the high ground is perfect for outdoor sports, and Dye said of the site before he started building his course, "I don't know what more you could ask for." With many options for oceanside golf in the region, Colleton is well worth a visit for the abundance of water and evergreen woodlands, while a number of the holes offer roomy play by the beach. Greens are undulating and defended by small, pot-style bunkers. The links-style layout provides stunning views out over Port Royal Sound and the Atlantic beyond.
