3-star: a good golf course with many fine features.

Where2Golf says: 

Keighley Golf Club: Laid out along the banks of the River Aire on one side, and the Leeds & Liverpool Canal on the other, there is much to admire in this relatively short, parkland layout at Keighley. Mature trees and rapidly developing saplings provide definition to each hole, while lush grass beyond the fairways ensures that there is a price to pay for shots which stray into the semi-rough. While Keighley's parkland charm, complemented by the meandering river, may present an easy-going, gentle outing at first glance, there are some holes that will more seriously test and examine your all round golf game. Many players would elect the good-length par-4 17th as their favourite hole. Longer par-4's at the 1st, 5th, 6th and 15th will all require good length off the tee if the green is to be hit in regulation; even then fairway woods and long irons are often needed to reach the target. Keighley, together with the golf clubs at Ilkley and Bingley St Ives, form an attractive triumvirate of courses on the edge of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales.

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.
