Where2Golf says: 

Horsham Golf Club: Roughly halfway between Melbourne and Adelaide on the inland route (A8), Horsham is home to a very pleasant and testing golf course. Tall, mature pines and eucalyptus, as well as many other tree varieties, line the often tightish fairways, on this gently undulating and well-maintained parkland layout. When pine trees are in the majority, you might almost be fooled into thinking you are playing Horsham in Surrey rather than Horsham, Victoria, such is the classic nature of this excellent golf course. Stylish bunkering flanks several fairways and provides threatening defences to the top quality greens. Some of the best holes come on the back-nine, which benefits from a little more undulation than is found on the front-nine. The 12th is an excellent doglegging par-4, soon followed by two snaking back-to-back par-5s, the 14th and 15th. If the tightish fairways are not narrowed by trees, then springy semi-rough often lies in wait for any wayward drives. Overall, a quiet, pleasant and natural setting for one of Victoria's best out-of-town, parkland layouts.

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.

Sutton Coldfield Golf Club: located to the north of Birmingham, occupies a small corner of the wonderfully expansive and natural environs of Sutton Park.

Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
