Where2Golf says: 

The Grange Golf Club (East course): Separated at one point by just 200 yards from Royal Adelaide Golf Club, it is no surprise to find The Grange Golf Club occupying similar, sand-based, linksy terrain. Here the East and West courses, each laid out in two nine-hole loops, roam across an expansive parkland area, where partly open, partly tree-lined fairways make their way to well-bunkered greens.

The East course is the slightly more recent design, marginally shorter and arguably not quite as impeccably maintained as its companion. It too benefits from firm, fast, links-like fairways, which will feel a tad tighter on some occasions than on the West. Another departure from its companion is the occasional presence of water, not least along the rightside of both the par-5 4th and par-4 5th (known as Crow's Shed), where small wetland ponds dangerously threaten along the rightside of each hole. The par-4 7th and par-3 8th also bring water into play, this time on the leftside.

The terrain here is generally quite flat, with long grassy mounds and a liberal scattering of trees separating the holes. Between the 11th and 12th fairways a small preservation area contains some of the Adelaide sandbelt's rarer indigenous flora. Although lacking a little of the West's charm and elegance, and occasionally a bit more exposed to housing beyond the perimeter, the East nonetheless provides an enjoyable and challenging round, especially with water threatening on the front-nine and several tightish drives to make on the inward-nine.

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.
