Where2Golf says: 

The Links Lady Bay Resort: About 70 km south of Adelaide, and set beneath picturesque, grass-covered rolling hills, the Links Lady Bay course provides one of South Australia's most enjoyable and scenic golf outings - as an integral part of the Links Lady Bay Resort, with a Grand Mercure hotel on site, this is an excellent coastal location at which to relax and enjoy your game - the links-style layout, set less than a kilometre back from the ocean, is classically open, with rolling fairways and many swales, bumps and hollows built into the pleasantly undulating terrain - rustic looking brown-sand bunkering and large, undulating greens with slick run-off areas all adds to the links golf experience - the generally good-width fairways will be enjoyed by long hitters, although go too far offline and uncompromising grassy rough awaits in the mounds that line the holes - although some housing is planned for the future, it won't detract from the general feeling of breezy openness, which is complemented by wonderful views onto the shimmering ocean and folding hills - this pleasantly challenging layout, with some easier-going holes and others decidedly less so, benefits from excellent quality maintenance and presentation - well worth the journey south from Adelaide, especially if you plan to stay a day or two and sample the local estate wine as well.

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.
