Where2Golf says: 

Belle Mare Plage (Legend): Located in close proximity to the Constance Belle Mare Plage resort, you'll find its Legend and Links championship golf courses. Both lay down a testing, technical challenge for your game. Situated directly opposite the resort, the classical, parkland Legend course is the flatter and tighter of the two, a layout that has recently hosted the professionals of the European Seniors Tour. Here you will need your A-game to score well, with the "A" firmly based on accuracy. Laid out in an ancient deer reserve (you may still see some deer), the course is relatively flat and uncontoured, with shallow bunkering around the subtly sloping greens. Tightish tree-lined holes and an abundance of water hazards will continually demand excellent course management and accurate shot-making. The 506-metre par-5 4th is the longest hole and arguably the tightest, with water flanking both the left and right of the fairway. As you carefully pick your way round this layout, there is not too much to see beyond the course, although an attractive and varied array of tropical trees and bushes line the holes inside the perimeter. The undoubted highlight of the Legend comes at the fabulous par-3 17th, where the course suddenly opens out onto a large lagoon, a corner of which you must cross with your tee shot. A course that will be appreciated by the straight-hitting technician, rather than the wayward big-hitter.

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.
