Greensboro’s Sedgefield Country Club Dye Course will become a semi-private facility and restore its original name, The Cardinal by Pete Dye.

On March 1, 2019, the Sedgefield Country Club Dye Course near Piedmont Triad International Airport in Greensboro becomes a semi-private facility and restores its original name, The Cardinal by Pete Dye.

“We are excited about this change and look forward to increased rounds and activity on the golf course,” wrote McConnell Golf Triad Regional Director Beverly Marler in a letter to the membership. “Rest assured membership will still have its privileges.”

In 2006, McConnell Golf purchased the Cardinal Golf & Country Club, a Pete Dye-designed masterpiece originally constructed in 1974 and host to many nationally recognized amateur tournaments, including the club’s renowned Cardinal Amateur. After nearly $5 million in renovations to the clubhouse and golf course, most notably hiring Dye to return and fully restore his original design, The Cardinal is recognized as one of the state’s most challenging courses.

With the recent announcement, The Cardinal tee sheet is open to non-member play with the following conditions: 

  • All members will have preferred access to the tee sheet, allowing them to secure the same prime times to which they are accustomed.
  • All Full Golf members may retain the same access that is currently enjoyed at Sedgefield and other McConnell Golf properties.
  • All Dye Family Golf members may retain their same membership privileges at The Cardinal as well as dining privileges at Sedgefield.
  • All current dues/fees will remain in place.

Tee times are available to the public via and GolfNow's online tee time marketplace. 

Dye Family Golf memberships for The Cardinal will continue to be available. In addition, Head Golf Professional Chris Terry and his team will offer a full calendar of golf tournaments, events, and programs throughout the year that are available exclusively to members — including Full Golf members who have access to all McConnell Golf properties, existing Dye Family Golf members and any new Cardinal memberships. These programs will not be open to non-members.
