When renowned golf course architect Pete Dye was chosen in the mid 1970's to design Oak Tree Golf Club he was given only one directive: "Make it the hardest course in the world." At the 1988 PGA Championship, players faced a course with a USGA rating of 76.9 for its par of 71, the highest course rating in the country at that time. To date, Dye speaks of Oak Tree as the finest inland golf course he has ever built. Over the years, Oak Tree Golf Club has hosted a number of prestigious tournaments, including the 1980 PGA Cup Matches, 1984 U.S. Amateur, 1988 PGA Championship and 2000 PGA Club Professional Championship.
