THE LINKS AT PERRY CABIN BY PETE DYE TO DEBUT IN SPRING 2018

St. Michael’s, Md. (Aug. 15, 2017) – The Links at Perry Cabin debuts Spring 2018 on Maryland’s Eastern Shore and Chesapeake Bay. Created by renowned architect Pete Dye, the Links is an exciting, exhilarating 18-hole layout that plays through trees and over significant elevation changes.

“This golf course is exciting because it incorporates all of the Pete Dye mysterious things that he does,” commented Alice Dye, Pete’s wife and long-time design collaborator. “As you go along, it builds up and you see a little Pete Dye here and a few more Pete Dye elements there, and then you get to the 16th hole and the final three holes are so exciting.”

The Dyes describe The Links at Perry Cabin as a family “mulligan” because Pete worked on a course at the same site back in the 1960s with his late brother Roy Andy Dye before the developer went bankrupt. The new course—a total rebuild designed by Pete Dye with additional input from Alice and their son, P.B. Dye—is now part of the most luxurious resort in this part of the country.

It is also one of the most exclusive, being available only to club members and guests of the Inn at Perry Cabin.

“Several holes have a links-style feeling with continuous movement and some mounding that almost looks like natural sand dunes,” explained P.B. “The 7th has the same philosophy as the 9th hole at Yale, a famous ‘Biarritz’ hole with a big saddle in the middle of the green. It’s definitely not a hole that you see on the Eastern Shore, so it’s going to stand out.”

P.B. continued, “At the turn, you enter into an almost parkland-type course, holes 10 to 15 are in the woods with majestic old trees. You feel as if the course has been there for years. Then the last three holes—what we call the ‘Good Night Kiss’—golfers are going to remember, with a short par 4, a replica of the island green from TPC Sawgrass, and the 18th will be one of the most majestic finishing holes in golf.”

Golf memberships are being sold, with playing and lodging privileges built into a limited number of founder memberships.

St. Michael’s, Maryland, is located about 60 miles from Baltimore-Washington International Airport (BWI) and 90 miles from Washington, D.C. The area is easily accessible from Philadelphia (2.5 hours) and New York City (4 hours). Easton Municipal Airport, 20 minutes away, accommodates private aircraft.

“Golf with a Twist” Revitalizes Hunt Valley CC Near Baltimore

 

Hunt Valley Country Club,—an Arcis Golf property in the scenic Maryland countryside—has opened an innovative, three-in-one golf course designed to appeal to golfers, non-golfers, families, and anyone else with an imaginative new concept perfect for celebrations, events, and sporting activities of many kinds.

The newly renovated course, named “The Ridge 9,” offers nine holes of traditional golf along with 18 holes of two other games played on a golf course: Disc golf and Footgolf.  This three-in-one combination creates a family-friendly environment that make Hunt Valley much more than simply another golf club.

“This is the only place on the East Coast where you will find a country club with a championship golf course plus Disc and Footgolf courses,” said Jon Vodehnal, general manager of Hunt Valley Country Club. “The upgrades to The Valley, our 18-hole championship layout, have enhanced shot values and improved playability. On The Ridge 9 we’re offering fun experiences the whole family can enjoy, no matter how they like to play.”

The changes to The Ridge 9—now promoting a variety of “swing, sling, and kick” sports options—is part of a $2.5-million revitalization of the entire Hunt Valley CC.

“We can create all sorts of activities for our members,” Vodehnal said. “That could be anything from a tee shot accuracy contest or a dart game station, speed golf, and just about anything you can think of that applies to golfers, Disc golfer, and Footgolfers alike.”

The Ridge 9 also allows Hunt Valley County Club the ability to host different types of events, from kid’s birthday parties that are outdoors, active, and economical, to corporate outings and team building exercises.  Hunt Valley’s on-site experts are experienced in organizing charitable golf tournaments and with The Ridge 9’s flexibility, the staff can assist planners in creating a new, exciting twist on traditional events. The club will also be offering Disc golf leagues for those seeking some fun as part of a group.

Located 22 miles north of downtown Baltimore in a family-centric community once known for historic horse farms, Hunt Valley Country Club remains the region’s premier golf experience. The club’s 18-hole layout –The Valley—was redesigned in 2016 by Fry/Straka Global Golf Course Design. Additionally, a new practice range features two elevated tiers with both grass and artificial turf hitting surfaces. The range also was extended to accommodate a full array of clubs, benefitting golfers warming up and practicing as well as the club’s staff of PGA golf professionals and their students.

The enhancements made to Hunt Valley Country Club are part of Arcis Golf’s commitment to allocating millions of dollars in major capital improvements to its portfolio of 68 public and private facilities nationwide, an indication of the dynamic direction the Dallas-based company is taking in the golf industry.
