Where2Golf says: 

Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club: Bordering alongside Trabuco Creek (Arroyo Trabuco in Spanish), this very natural golf course is laid out in the gently rolling, west facing foothills of the Santa Ana mountain range. With real estate development prohibited in this area, the surrounding environment provides a wonderfully natural setting for this out-and-back Tom Lehman design; it also provides a home for a multitude of southern California flora and fauna, including mountain lions and rattlesnakes (not dangerous unless YOU provoke THEM). The layout takes you quickly into open, rolling hills, with good-width fairways flanked by an array of long grasses, bushes and small trees. The most scenic stretch, from the par-5 7th through to the par-5 12th occupies wonderfully open, undulating terrain, where plenty of elevation changes add to character of the holes. Particularly attractive are the 10th, 11th and 12th, which lead you through a ruggedly picturesque canyon, deep in the hills. Water makes its first telling appearance at the attractive par-3 13th, where a tee-to-green carry over a small lake is required (perhaps modelled on the renowned 17th of Kiawah Island's Ocean course ?). The closing duo are dangerously threatened by the same small lake that runs from tee-to-green up the leftside of the long par-4 17th and par-5 18th; definitely a concern for habitual hookers of the ball. Clearly a fan of links golf, Lehman has provided many short, grassy run-off areas around the often large and undulating greens, perfect to hone your chip-and-run game.

Did you know?

The golf course is laid out in the western foothills of the Santa Ana mountain range, which separates Orange County from neighbouring Riverside County. The nearby town of Mission Viejo is one of the largest master planned communities ever built as a single project in the United States. The city's name is a reference to Rancho Mission Viejo, a large Spanish land grant from which the community was founded. There is no Spanish mission in Mission Viejo. >> On the other side of the Creek from the golf course you will see Saddleback College. Enrolling over 25,000 students each semester, this two-year post-secondary institute of higher education has served South Orange County since 1968.

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.
