Where2Golf says: 

Bluewater Bay Golf Resort (Lake/Magnolia courses): With 36 championship golf holes available, you may find your round combines any two of Bluewater's four nine-hole loops - although the Lake/Marsh and Bay/Magnolia combinations seem to be most frequently used, we have chosen to highlight the Lake/Magnolia pairing, which is located away from the Bay and takes you into an attractive environment of small lakes and natural wetlands (we separately feature the Bay/Marsh pairing, which maximises the views out onto Choctawhatchee Bay) - the original, Fazio-designed Lake-nine gives you some of the best golf holes at Bluewater Resort, as well as an occasional touch of elevation change - the slightly uphill, blind drive at the very good par-4 1st gets the Lakes off to an impressive start - a fabulous stretch of holes includes the par-4 3rd and par-4 5th, both flanked from tee-to-green by a narrow lake, with the signature, downhill par-3 4th played across the lake - the Gerry Pate designed Magnolia-nine is the newest of Bluewater's quartet, and in many ways exudes the most natural feel - several holes are routed through woodland, where oaks, pines and magnolias line the way - sandy waste areas and good-quality bunkering often threaten, while occasional carries over wetland will be required on some holes - although you don't get bayside, you will enjoy some of Bluewater's best golfing challenges and natural scenery on the Lake/Magnolia layout.

Did you know?

Bluewater Bay Resort is located on the north shore of the expansive Choctawhatchee Bay, which appeared on early Spanish, French, and English charts as St Rose's Bay or Santa Rosa Bay. The 140-mile Choctawhatchee River flows down from southern Alabama and empties into the Bay, along with several other smaller rivers and streams. The name Choctawhatchee simply means "River of the Choctaws".

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.

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