Where2Golf says: 

There are few golf clubs that can boast such panoramic and commanding views from the clubhouse and 1st tee, than Heswall Golf Club. The Dee estuary and the North Wales coast are a stunning sight from this peaceful stretch of the Wirral peninsula, all supposing that the wind is not blowing flat out (as it sometimes can do in these parts).

The opening holes take you down towards the estuary. By the time you reach the long par-3 4th you will be directly alongside the expansive marshland that stretches away to eventually link-up with the water's edge. Holes 5, 6, 7, 8 and 14 are also played on this lower level, down by the waterside, but don't expect sand dunes and a links style course here at Heswall.

On this well-maintained layout, the gentle slopes and predominantly parkland-style holes are defined by small birch and fir trees separating the fairways. A few small, deep ponds also come into the reckoning, guarding the approaches to two or three greens.

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.

Sutton Coldfield Golf Club: located to the north of Birmingham, occupies a small corner of the wonderfully expansive and natural environs of Sutton Park.
