Weed specializes in golf course design, renovation and repurposing. He began his professional career with an extended apprenticeship with Pete Dye, launching a collaboration of over 35 years’ duration and a lifelong friendship.
Hired in 1983 by the PGA TOUR,Weed was the in-house designer from 1987-1996, responsible for the design of many of today’s best-known TPC venues, which continue as host sites for prominent TOUR events.
Weed also collaborated with many of golf’s most familiar names, including Sam Snead, Gene Sarazen, ArnoldPalmer, Jack Nicklaus, Raymond Floyd, Jerry Pate and Chi Chi Rodriguez – a rare cross section of experience.
In 1994, Weed’s career reached an apex with the formation of his own design firm, where he continues to“handcraft” golf courses. Today, Weed has amassed an impressive list of new and renovated courses that consistently are ranked at the top of their respective categories.
