Where2Golf says: 

Moonah Links (Open course): The most formidable course in Australia? Off the back tees with the wind blowing (as it often does) even the best Aussie professionals struggle to break par. Like many of the great British and Irish links courses, its a tough one for amateurs, but unmissable and thrilling to play. The wonderful layout comprises many elevated tee-boxes and greens, good-width fairways and plenty of bunkering - some of it in the middle of the fairways (and not just small pot bunkers either). Putting on the huge, sloping greens may be a humbling experience, but the excellence of the undulating layout, combined with the splendid setting will keep you enthralled all the way round. Wineries, rural countryside and occasional box-shaped villas lie beyond the course, enhancing its rolling openness. Peter Thomson was given a prime site on which to establish a fitting seaside links venue for the Australian Open. Apart from the absence of sea views, he created everything you would hope for in a world class links course.

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.
