Where2Golf says: 

Golf de la Bretesche: Towering pines and oak trees create tight-ish corridor-like fairways here in the sumptuous woodland setting of the even more sumptuous Chateau de la Bretesche. The Chateau, providing a backdrop for the 9th and 18th holes, is a definitive towers-and-turrets grand chateau, surrounded by a deep and dark moat. All very spectacular ! The golf course is a very pleasant tree-lined affair, which requires precision over power, and which opens out a little, as it nears the Chateau. Beware the large greens, they can be quite quick. Also beware the trade-mark Bill Baker U-shaped hole. Here at La Bretesche it appears as the par-4 8th, and contains far too many degrees of bend for a single par-4.

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.
