Where2Golf says: 

Estoril Golf: Situated in the heart of upmarket residential Estoril, this course conforms to type for city centre golf - dogs yap from nearby gardens (but that's only at the 1st hole), a motorway splits the course in two (but its only a minor distraction for two or three holes) and like the area, some of the hills can be slightly tough going. But make no mistake, here at Estoril is a Mackenzie Ross masterpiece, which richly deserves to be played. Pleasantly wooded and quite tight in parts, there is often more space off the tee than you at first think. The bowl-like green at the long par-3 8th is just one feature that marks out a succession of truly memorable holes. Unless you hit as long as Ernie Els, don't worry about this seemingly short par-69 course - there is more than enough challenge to satisfy any amateur golfer.

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.

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.
