Where2Golf says: 

Hesketh Golf Club's first two holes and final five, are characterised by sizeable sand dunes that give plenty of contour and character to the opening and closing stretches of the course. These holes effectively encircle the impressive clubhouse.

In the middle section of the course the terrain becomes considerably flatter, promoting more of a parkland and less of a coastal duneland feel to proceedings. The 6th and 7th holes run alongside an area of marshland, which stretches far into the distance, and is home to a well-known bird reserve. The sea itself is too far across the marshes to be a visible feature from the course, but with trees, water and deep rough bordering both sides of many holes you'll need to keep your full attention on the course itself.

Although not overly dramatic in terms of scenery, Hesketh is nonetheless a very pleasant and natural golf course, excellently maintained and a regular venue for prestigious regional amateur events.

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.
