Where2Golf says: 

Turnberry Isle Miami Resort (Miller course): Ray Floyd's redesign of Turnberry Isle's two courses was heralded in 2006 by a name change. The North and South were transformed into the present-day Miller and Soffer courses, giving this luxury Miami resort two distinctly different layouts. Although shorter, more forgiving and lacking some of the landscaping and planting that characterises the Soffer (Turnberry Isle's jewel in the crown), the Miller course is nonetheless an absorbing and excellent test of golf.

Towering condo blocks may look down on proceedings from outside the resort, but not so as to detract from the oasis-like character of the course. The holes are attractively defined by a liberal scattering of slender palms and black olive trees, while an excellent array of crater-like, white-sand bunkers hug the fairways and defend the immaculately maintained greens. Water makes several telling appearances on the Miller's front-nine, becoming an even greater peril on the inward loop, where you journey around a good-sized lake from the par-3 12th to the excellent par-4 16th; all five of these holes are bounded by water on the rightside - a potential nightmare for slicers of the ball!

When water is not present, wayward shots will come to rest on grassy earthmounds, which is less penalising than catching the more abundant and thicker vegetation of the Soffer course. Again resonating with the Soffer course, the Miller's par-5 18th is memorably enhanced by a spectacular waterfall, with ficus trees and excellent bunkering also adding to the scenic finish.

Stay & Play: luxury on-site accommodation is available at this top-quality Turnberry Isle Miami Resort (see Where2Stay section below).

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.
