Window coverings were taken down to better showcase incredible views of the
Pete Dye golf course. One-of-a-kind wallpaper specially designed is used in the
second floor Garden Room and the first-floor ladies restroom. John Vickery preps
lunch in the short-order kitchen on the first floor. What was once a small prep
kitchen for light lunch items has been enlarged into a full service kitchen and grill
for the Dye Clubhouse’s new dining venue, Pete’s.
“WE leveled those floors up
and opened that up to
where you walk in and
see all the way through,”
says architect John Murray of Bowman Murray
Hemingway. “Those views are amazing. The
building really wasn’t taking advantage of those
views prior to the renovation.”
Every window was replaced, and the decision
was made to leave them uncovered.
“The whole backside of the building has such
breathtaking views to the point we named one of
the rooms upstairs the Overlook Room and the

One-of-a-kind wallpaper was designed from
Carroll’s House of Harris line for an upstairs
room and another unique design was used in the
downstairs women’s restroom. A color palette of

to make room for a casual dining grill.
“The greatest reward was seeing the reaction of
the members who hadn’t seen it since the hurri-cane
damaged it. They just couldn’t believe the
transformation,” says Murray.
Light fixtures were selected by Carroll, who
chose classic designs with a more modern
“I view lighting in a building as the jewelry
of the project. We were able to incorporate great
chandeliers but we also used a lot of wall sconces
and pendants,” says Carroll.
To keep the existing wood paneling as a tie to
the original clubhouse, the red mahogany wood
paneled walls in the lounge were restained a deep
brown-black and paired with a pale blue uphol-stered
“The future of this structure has been debated
for years,” Murray says. “This was taking a build-ing
that was at the end of a life and turning it into
something spectacular that members can enjoy for
