Daily fee Dye-design in Westchester County offers virtual tour, online reservations
(POUND RIDGE, N.Y.) - Pound Ridge Golf Club - the newest daily fee course in Westchester County - has launched a new website featuring three exclusive videos of legendary course designer Pete Dye. Also provided are virtual tours, e-postcards and other features that bring the course to life for golfers everywhere.
The short videos reflect upon the 10-year process of designing and building Pound Ridge Golf Club, giving viewers a first-hand peek into the vision, intuition and constantly-evolving thought process that have allowed Dye to design award-winning, eco-friendly courses for over 50 years.
The biographical videos are woven together by Pete's personal comments, insights provided by his wife, Alice, and the perspectives of his design and construction team. The videos - "The Ethos of Pete Dye," "Pete Dye of Design" and "Pete Dye on Pound Ridge" - provide a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at his design process and reveal how golf's "greatest living architect" meticulously crafted the course with Ben Hogan in mind.
The inspired wit and precision of Dye's design of Pound Ridge Golf Club - featuring the same intriguing balance of accuracy and playability as his other work including TPC Sawgrass, Whistling Straits and Casa de Campo - has now been captured on film. Viewers are offered an intimate insight into Dye's ever-fertile mind and the manifold reasons his courses linger in memory.
For those who enjoy the mathematical poetry of golf and Dye courses in particular, the new website offers: hole-by-hole strategies; drop-down architectural renderings; handicap/index-based tee placement information; and precise distances for a variety of different shots throughout the course.
Another online feature is the ability for players and viewers to share their experience of Pound Ridge Golf Club by sending an e-card to colleagues and family, with mouthwatering, high-resolution photos of each hole and space for personal comments.
"We are excited to launch our new website and highlight Pete's exceptional course design," says Pound Ridge owner Ken Wang. "The Pound Ridge Golf Club new website creates a stimulating, virtual tour of each hole and allows golfers to effortlessly book online."
Through video and image excellence, the new Pound Ridge Golf Club website clearly articulates the 10-year process of transforming 172 acres into one the New York metropolitan's top courses. Since opening in 2008, Pound Ridge has earned world-class accolades from Golf Digest, GOLF Magazine, Golfweek, and LINKS Magazine, becoming a must-play in every golfer's bucket list.
