Normally when golfers say that they are looking forward to the 19th hole, they are referring to the clubhouse or bar. The 19th hole is a slang term for a pub, bar, or restaurant on or near the golf course, very often the clubhouse itself. A normal round of golf has 9 or 18 holes of play. However, some golf courses actually do have a 19th hole you can play. That hole is often used to settle a bet, to determine who is paying for drinks and things alike. As we like to inform golfers about special things concerning golf courses, we decided to provide you with a collection of golf courses throughout the world with a playable 19th hole!

The Dye name has long been associated with the game of golf, or more specifically, golf courses. Back in the 1960’s, when golfers walked hard fairways and unwatered rough, carrying wooden headed clubs with steel shafts, Pete and Alice Dye had their humble beginnings. From their first major project at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, the couple’s design influences have evolved through the years. Initially taking inspiration from Robert Trent Jones and Alister McKenzie, the Dye’s would eventually develop their own unique style. Target greens, difficult 18th’s and high lipped greenside bunkers among other trademark elements, would form the basis for a Dye course in the years to come.
