Where2Golf says: 

Jack's Point Golf Course: This relatively new course has a name and reputationthat's already reverberating around the world of golf - if you are not looking up at the stunning Remarkables mountain range, you are probably looking across the wide expanse of Lake Wakatipu - on many holes the stunning panoramas combine both lake and mountains - complementing and blending into the spectacular scenery, is a fabulous out-and-back layout, brilliantly designed by John Darby - with infinity greens backdropped by the lake - dry stone walls to drive over - always undulating, always dramatic and scenic - Jack's Point exudes an open and classically linksy character - nobody said golf was intended to be easy, which parts of this layout certainly aren't - but nobody said golf was supposed to be this scenic either - generally good-width fairways and all playing surfaces immaculately maintained - with a green fee substantially less than the other big new name in town (The Hills) its no wonder Jack's Point has already put a big smile on the faces of thousands of visiting golfers - quickly gaining a world-class reputation that's spreading way beyond the shores of New Zealand.

Did you know?

The "Jack" of Jack's Point is not as many believe something connected with the Golden Bear (Jack Nicklaus), but rather with a local Maori hero called Jack Tewa. In the winter of 1862, "Maori Jack" as he was known locally, risked his own life attempting to save two of his companions (Rogers and Mitchell) after their boat overturned on the lake in a freezing, violent squall. Although Rogers eventually succumbed to the appalling conditions, Jack's actions (and those of a mysterious collie dog) certainly saved Mitchell's life.

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.
