Where2Golf says: 

The Golf Club at Terra Lago (South course): Located on the less developed, eastern side of I-10, and previously known as Landmark Golf Club, the North and South courses at Terra Lago are scenically among the most spectacular in the Palm Springs/Palm Desert area. The South course is perhaps a shade less dramatic than the North, but like its companion, the layout initially weaves its way through wonderfully undulating, desert terrain. This open and ruggedly beautiful environment will challenge and enthral in equal measure, with its many rolling elevation changes and fairways laced through the rocky, duneland wilderness. From the higher elevations, the length and breadth of the Coachella Valley is stunningly revealed, with its towering mountain ranges flanking either side. The lower sections of the front-nine loop are sliced through by the Coachella Canal, which is crossed on two occasions via Terra Lago's signature bridges, crafted from former railroad wagons. The undulating, pristine desert of the front-nine, gives way to a flatter and arguably less interesting back-nine. Starting at the short, bunker-encircled, par-3 12th, the holes make an anti-clockwise loop around an area planned for real estate development. Water hazards are sparingly used throughout, coming into play on three front nine holes courtesy of the canal and a collection of small ponds that line the par-5 8th. Only on the dog-legging par-4 10th will water threaten on the back-nine.

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.
