Where2Golf says: 

Grand Cypress Golf Club (New course): Orlando's impressive Grand Cypress Resort, located next door to Walt Disney World, boasts 45 holes of Jack Nicklaus Signature golf. The original three nine-hole loops, which make up the North/South/East course, were joined a short while later by the distinctively different New course. Although New in name, this Nicklaus Signature design takes its cue, and opening and closing hole design, from the Old Course St Andrews (and other notable Scottish links courses). All the hallmarks of a traditional duneland seaside golf course have been re-created here, except of course views onto the sea, and a notable absence of thick rough. Although surrounded by woodland, the course itself is open and virtually treeless. There are plenty of small, strategically located pot bunkers that threaten marginally wayward drives and also defend the large, undulating greens. Water ditches (burns), low dry-stone walls, gorse-like bushes (whins) and slick, bump-and-run green-surrounds all feature strongly. As do several huge double-greens. One Scottish feature that is relatively absent here is knee-high rough skirting the well-groomed fairways, which allows big-hitters to larrup the ball into relatively non-penal, expansively open areas. Really fun to play, and a good test off the back tees.

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.
