A free spirit who does not wear wrist watches or look at calendars, P.B. (Paul Burke) Dye is the youngest son of famed golf course architects Pete and Alice Dye. Following his family's example, P.B. has been "moving dirt" for as long as he can remember. He was atop a bulldozer at age 9 learning the art of shaping golf courses at Crooked Stick in Carmel, Indiana, and at age 16, P.B. helped his dad at Teeth of the Dog in Dominican Republic.
P.B. graduated from the University of Tampa in 1980 where he studied Spanish, a discipline useful to him when in the Dominican Republic. P.B. embraces "The Dye Way"—a personal commitment to "roll up your sleeves" hard work and quality. He has no office, staff, or overhead, and he often lives on job sites, designing and building courses himself. P.B. has been called a natural–born wizard on a tractor, and he has been known to have aimed a bulldozer into the woods to begin his courses.
A non–stop storyteller and talker, P.B. has constructed more than 30 courses, which are mostly located in the eastern United States. He maintains two residences, following the golf season: he lives in Ohio in the summer and Florida in the winter, with frequent visits to the family compound in the Dominican Republic. A survivor of both colon and rectal cancer, P.B.'s acclaimed designs include the P.B. Dye Golf Club in Maryland, The Honors Course in Tennessee, Fisher Island in Florida, and the Legends Club Moorland Course in South Carolina.
