The Golf Guide to the Top Courses
Where2Golf says: 

Harborside International's two excellent golf courses, Port & Starboard, are both well-rated and always popular layouts. They were designed by Dick Nugent to bring the great tradition of British links golf to the Chicago area, and are the closest top-quality public access courses to downtown Chicago.

In many respects Port and Starboard are "peas-in-a-pod," both equally good, challenging and enjoyable courses to play. These open links-style layouts will not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy. With little to separate the two courses in terms of quality, golfing challenge and views (of the Chicago skyline, Lake Calumet and the surrounding eclectic area), our advice is play one course in the morning, stay for lunch and then try the other in the afternoon.

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.
