Where2Golf says: 

Cape Schanck Golf Course: Each hole of this very pleasantly undulating course is individually sculpted from the trees and bushes that once covered this and all other parts of the Mornington Peninsula. After a solid, and one might say American feeling front nine, the wind freshens as you head up the short par-4 10th, to be greeted at the 11th tee by the first of several wonderful back-nine sea and Mornington Peninsula views. The "price" of these views is levied in the form of tighter fairways and greater undulation, with the early good-width rolling fairways being replaced by some much tougher and tighter drives. The elevation changes create plenty of interesting holes, not least the superb par-3 14th, with a backdrop of the ocean and parts of the National GC. In true Trent Jones fashion, some of the greens here are huge - at the short par-4 6th the green must measure fully 80 metres from front to back. Among other Trent Jones features are a smattering of water hazards, including a small lake guarding the front of the green at the excellent par-3 7th. All in all a good course, with its even more impressive twin just next door (the Trent Jones designed Old Course of the National GC).

At this Stay & Play venue, the on-site accommodation is located close to the golf facilities.

Tournaments:
The American Express formerly known as the Desert Classic, and for many years played as the Bob Hope Desert Classic, will once again be decided on the Pete Dye designed Stadium course at PGA West (Jan 16-19).
The Players Championship:  for the 39th time, TPC Sawgrass, another iconic Pete Dye design, will host The Players Championship for one of the richest first prizes in world golf (March 12-15).
 
Who's Who: 
Pete Dye:  one of the greatest golf course architects of this or any generation passes away aged 94. His contribution to golf course design, and the legacy he leaves is immense.
Jack Nicklaus:  like Pete Dye a native of Ohio, actually started his golf course design career working together with Dye. In 1967 Dye asked Nicklaus to input to his design for The Golf Club in Columbus, Ohio. Two years later they worked together on the revered Harbour Town Golf Links in South Carolina.
