What are typical course conditions for the Dye course at French Lick at the beginning of October?  Might be coming thru and was going to give it a go if conditions are solid.

Played it in late september a few years ago and the course was impeccably conditioned.  Play the Ross course as well if you have a chance.  Based on cost/value i'd prefer Ross over Dye if i went back.  Both are awesome

Slightly off topic, but do they offer traditional caddies that carry your bag and walk with you, or is it strictly a riding course with forecaddie?

Played the Ross a few years ago and loved it.  Only time for one round and was hoping to play the dye

Both courses are walkable. The Dye course typically offers a cart and a forecaddie, but it's up to you.

Check with the course to make sure they aren't aerating when you are there.

PRO TIP:  The greenfees at PEte Dye are all for unlimited play so make sure you take advantage of that and try to get around twice.  You'll have to pay the forecaddie fee twice, but that's the only additional charge for the replay.
