Where2Golf says: 

Victor Harbor Golf Club: The most exciting, scenic and memorable shot you'll play at Victor Harbor is your first - perched high above the rest of the course, the layout's first-tee is located alongside the also elevated clubhouse - stretching out before you is a fabulous panorama, prominently featuring the Southern Ocean and the area's distinctive hills and coastal rock formations - this good-length, rifle-straight par-4 opener, plunges away down the hill, connecting you to the remainder of the course, which is a relatively flat, nicely tree-lined, parkland layout - a mix of tall eucalyptus, mature pines and many other native tree varieties line the usually good-width, sometimes tightish fairways - the small Inman River loops around the northern section of the course, but don't expect much here in the way of water hazards, except for two or three small ponds that come into play on a couple of holes - large, dish-shaped greenside bunkering is however something that threatens at several, although not all the holes - except for a small climb at the end of the front-nine loop, and a ski-tow that gets you back to the clubhouse from the 18th green, significant elevation change is confined to the spectacular opening hole - good maintenance and presentation standards are generally the case on this pleasant, tree-lined, parkland course - there is no housing on or around the perimeter, just a wonderfully natural environment of native trees and bushland, a rich haven for all manner of birdlife.

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.
