Working with renowned golf course architect Pete Dye, Commissioner Deane Beman created a course design that favored no particular player or style of play. The result is a truly balanced course. Players find a selection of short, medium, and long holes within the categories of par-3s, par-4s, and par-5s, both right and left doglegs, and a course routing laid out, so no two consecutive holes ever play in the same direction.
Opened in 1987, Dye's Valley Course has hosted a number of elite-level tournament competitions in its history: Korn Ferry Challenge at TPC Sawgrass (2020), Mackenzie Tour Qualifying (2018-19), Web.com Tour Championship (2013-2015), Winn-Dixie Jacksonville Open (2010-2012), United States Amateur Championship - Stroke Play Qualification (1994), Senior Players Championship (1988 - 1989). A challenging test and excellent conditions, Dye's Valley was ranked No. 21 of Golfweek's 2017-18 rankings of "Best Courses You Can Play" in Florida.
