Delray Dunes hires Scot Sherman for Dye restoration

“It has lost much of its Dye characteristics, so we are studying its past and trying to reintroduce Pete’s fingerprints on the ground as best we can,” said Sherman. “Similar to the older restoration projects, we are using photographs, aerial images, club documentation, and member testimony to accomplish the task.”

Kip Shultese(sp) just renovated it 3 years ago, seriously. Tried his best to mimic the Dye look.

I guess the fact that Pete Dye did not believe in restoration, will not stop guys from offering to restore his courses.


I've already heard from a couple of clubs wondering if I'd consult - including the very place where Pete told me that restoration was ridiculous.

Tom,


Could you touch on that some more? I'm curious as to why Pete was against restoration. Was his belief against all restoration or specifically related to his designs?

I would be curious in hearing about that as well, as I think some of his own designs are eminently restorable, especially the one in profile this week.
