Crooked Stick is Pete and Alice Dye’s first championship golf course design. It has been recognized as a Top 100 golf course since 1971 and has hosted six USGA National Championships including the U.S. Women’s Open and Senior Open and U.S. Women’s Amateur. John Daly’s historic win in the 1991 PGA Championship, the United States victory in the 2005 Solheim Cup, and BMW Championships in 2012 and 2016 won by Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson have all been contested on the historic links of Crooked Stick Golf Club. In 2020, Crooked Stick hosted the inaugural Dye Junior Invitational and the Western Golf Association's Western Amateur, and the Big Ten Conference Men's Championship in 2021. The goal of our membership is to present “The Dye Junior” as a tournament of the same high-quality and competitive level as those Championships and identify champions who become future stars on the PGA and LPGA Tours.
“A haven far removed from the urgency or conflict, where golfers can enjoy the quieter pleasures of their game in seclusion and peace. Crowds have no place here, and waiting between shots must be almost unknown, for the membership is limited,”
