Ipswich Golf Club (Purdis Heath)

4-star: generally an excellent standard golf course, well worth visiting.
   Ipswich Golf Club (Purdis Heath) Est. 1895

Where2Golf says: 

Ipswich Golf Club (Purdis Heath): This course on Purdis Heath carries all the trademark features of James Braid, a masterful course designer. With generally wide-ish tree-lined fairways, well-bunkered and smallish greens, touches of gorse and plenty of heather, this is a heathland course to rival the best in England. Among the many splendid holes are the 9th, a short, tight par 4, and the rifle straight par-5 11th. The blind shot to the 4th green is a curio on an otherwise splendid layout.

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.
