Where2Golf says: 

Tiger Point Golf & Country Club: Built alongside the wonderfully scenic Santa Rosa Sound, Tiger Point once featured two adjoining championship courses - after a pounding from hurricanes of the mid-2000s, golf is now available on the East course - the West course is undergoing a gradual restoration, which has seen nine holes brought back into play (as of 2009) - the out-and-back layout of the East course provides the opportunity for many scenic waterfront views, and a chance to test your game against a relatively open, Scottish links-style layout - two testing and water-defended par-3s feature among the first four holes; they will serve as good preparation as you progress to the short par-4 5th, with its water-surrounded island green - Tiger Point exudes a holiday golf feel much of the time, with its frequent views out onto the expansive Sound, and holiday homes and villas flanking several holes - the course becomes a little more tree-lined and housing a bit more noticeable on the 9 thru' 12 loop of holes, before linksy openness and sea breezes come rolling back in at the par-5 13th - maintenance here is good without being immaculate, perhaps unintentionally imbuing a linksy rusticity on parts of the course, not untypical on the average Scottish links - the rough may not be as penal as in Scotland, and no holes rub shoulders with the beach, but water will be a fairly constant companion - plenty of small ponds and water channels run alongside the good-width, flattish, uncontoured fairways and threateningly sidle up to some of the large and sloping greens.

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.
