Where2Golf says: 

Amata Spring Country Club, meaning eternal spring, is one of Thailand's elite courses that is only open to its members and their guests, a policy that's strictly applied here. In return for the hefty joining fee, members can enjoy one of the most exciting new layouts and one of the best presented courses in the country. Arranged on naturally contoured land that slopes gently away from two good-sized lakes, the course contains many excellent and distinctive features. The bunkering is top-class, with sizeable bunkers threatening at every hole and on every approach shot. Around the greens the substantive bunkering is complemented by smooth sloping run-off areas, which will thoroughly test your chipping skills, before you putt on the fast and often wickedly undulating greens. The two lakes come into play on several holes, not least the signature island-green short par-3 17th, that literally floats in one of the lakes. Measuring a mere 40 yards long by 40 wide, there is just the green to aim at, complemeted by a small bunker and one or two palm trees. A small boat will take you out to the green to putt out, or chip from the island's drop-zone. This highly prestigious and always challenging golf layout is not matched by its rather eclectic surroundings, which include light industry, Spanish villas, local homes, a temple, an oriental palace, condominiums, woodland and a small range of hills and mountains in the background.

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.

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.
