"The PGA of America is deeply saddened by the passing of Alice Dye, one of the most enduring advocates for women’s golf and the game’s future. Alice’s groundbreaking career as the ‘First Lady of Golf Architecture,’ where she partnered with her legendary husband, Pete, forged an unforgettable legacy. Alice was the first woman seated on the PGA Board of Directors, and went on to ignite so many other remarkable uplifting chapters that included being celebrated as the 2004 PGA First Lady of Golf. This very special woman took her passion to another level in a lifelong campaign to remind us that the game of golf should be inviting for all of us. The PGA joins the golf world in sending our thoughts and prayers to the Dye family." — PGA of America President Suzy Whaley.
