Where2Golf says: 

Just off I-95 above Port St Lucie you'll find the PGA Golf Club and its three excellent championship courses - this fabulous triumvirate, comprising two layouts by Tom Fazio (the Ryder and Wanamaker) and one by Pete Dye, are owned and operated by the PGA of America - whereas Scottish flavours permeate the Dye, and Carolina characteristics are found in the Ryder course, the Wanamaker is a classic Florida layout - set against a backdrop of wetlands, palm trees and palmettos, the course attractively weaves its way in two clockwise nine-hole loops - an equal distribution of small lakes, wetland areas and housing flank the holes as they follow the gentle, natural contours of the flowing terrain - large, often deep bunkers stand-out along the generally good-width fairways and around the large and undulating greens - when stylish bunkering is not guarding the putting surfaces, then water will doubtless be present to threaten your approach shots - although some housing is present, the Wanamaker has a mainly open and natural feel - expansive wetland areas, stands of tall pine trees and a liberal scattering of stockier palms predominate - some pleasant elevation changes are found at holes like the par-4 3rd and downhill par-3 6th - the wonderfully elevated green at the short par-4 15th is well worth hitting rather than leaking right into a cavernously deep awaiting bunker - this classically Floridian fusion of small lakes, wetlands and occasional woodland is immaculately presented here on the Wanamaker.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game. It is arguably the best of the country's more northerly layouts, together with Lauswolt (50 km away to the north-west).
