Pete Dye grew up in Ohio with his brother Andy, and was introduced to golf at an early age. He won the Ohio State High School Golf Championship, and secured a medal at the Ohio State Amateur Golf Championship, and then studied at Asheville School, a boarding institution in North Carolina. Dye wanted to be a paratrooper and even enrolled in the US Army Airborne School at Fort Benning in Georgia, but never entered World War II because it was over before he got an opportunity to be sent overseas.

After the war, Pete studied at the Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida, and after graduation moved to Indianapolis, Indiana, where he worked as an insurance salesman, and was a quite successful one as well. In the meantime, he excelled as an amateur golfer, and even won the Indiana State Amateur Championship in 1958.

Dye decided to become a golf course designer and he designed his first 18-hole course in Indianapolis named Heather Hills in 1961, now known as Maple Creek Golf & Country Club. His next endeavour was the Radrick Farms Golf Course at the University of Michigan in 1962 and it opened in 1965, while the following year Dye visited Scotland to thoroughly study classical golf courses. Upon his return to the US in 1964, Pete designed the Crooked Stick Golf Club in Carmel, Indiana, which would be used for the 1991 PGA Championship, while three years later, he completed The Golf Club near Columbus, Ohio.

Among well-known public golf courses in America which Dye has designed are La Quinta Resort and Club in California, Lost Canyons Golf Club also in California, TPC at Sawgrass, Florida, and Brickyard Crossing, Indiana. He also worked on the TPC of Louisiana, Bulle Rock Golf Course in Maryland, Pound Ridge Golf Club in New York, Mystic Rock, and Nemacolin Woodlands Resort in Pennsylvania. Pete created golf courses in South Carolina, Virginia, and Wisconsin, including Kiawah Island Golf Resort, Harbour Town Golf Links, Virginia Oaks, Big Fish Golf Club, Whistling Straits, and Blackwolf Run. Dye also designed courses in the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Israel, Italy, and Switzerland.

Regarding his personal life, Pete Dye married Alice Holliday O’Neal in the early ‘50s and he has two sons with her. They currently reside in Carmel, Indiana.
