Where2Golf says: 

Malone Golf Club is home to another of Belfast's very handsome, undulating parkland layouts, where Fred Hawtree's excellent design combines with the natural woodland beauty of the Ballydrain estate. All manner of trees are dotted along the top quality fairways (but never too densely), with some mighty oak, chestnut and beech trees particularly prominent. Solid bunkering also features along the fairways and around the excellent greens. The Drumbridge and Ballydrain nines are the primary combination, with the equally good Edenderry nine making up the 27 holes of Malone. A large lake comes into play on the Ballydrain nine, most noticeably at the wonderful short par-3 15th. Clearly a very good parkland golf course that is part of Belfast's elite, ranking closely alongside Royal Belfast and Belvoir Park.

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.

Latest golf course reviews
Sutton Coldfield Golf Club: located to the north of Birmingham, occupies a small corner of the wonderfully expansive and natural environs of Sutton Park.
