“A challange”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Possibly the best course in all of south FL, and there are 2 other 18's equally great! The golf practice center here is world class with driving and short iron ranges, sand traps, greens and a pro available whenever you need help. It's a golfer's haven.

“Minority view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Many of my friends don't like the Dye because it makes them think. When it is in good condition I believe it is the best of the three courses in the PGA Village complex.

“A classic Dye Creation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Played the course later in the day with no Ranger in evidence. Much nicer experience than on the Wannamaker, although the course was in worse condition.

“2 rounds played in March 2013”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

The course is a very fun layout. Looks intimidating from the tee but ample landing areas. Issue was the course was in poor shape. Greens rolled OK, but many had replaced sod patches. Fairways were thin. Discount rate of $59 (Normally $120) made it worthwhile & we played 2 days in a row.

The PGA of America is very much aware of your concerns and disappointed that we did not deliver an experience that is commensurate with The PGA brand and our commitment to excellence. To address these issues, we hired Dick Gray in March 2013 as the new Superintendent for PGA Golf Club and PGA Country Club. Dick comes with 25 years of experience with top golf courses, including Jupiter Hills, which was ranked among the Top 100 Courses when he served as Superintendent. He is charged with restoring the courses at PGA Village to the top quality we have been known for throughout the years.

We value our guests, and have notified any staff involved in delivering less than an excellent experience that this is not consistent or acceptable with The PGA brand. We would like the opportunity to serve you again in the future, please advise if a credit for a future round or a full refund would be acceptable.

Thank you,

Adriana Vizcaya

“Enough already with the bunkers, but that's Pete's way”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013 via mobile

We played the Dye Course for $55 vs the normal $119 price tag. The course was unnecessarily difficult for the average golfer.
Ridiculous number of bunkers (some were pot bunkers). It takes the fun out of it.
Were paired up with a couple from Chicago staying at PGA and they said the Wanamaker course was more enjoyable.
We knew Dye courses were challenging, but this was ridiculous.
