The Golf Guide to the Top Courses
Where2Golf says: 

Located in the Rio Grande area of Puerto Rico, amongst the island's largest concentration of golf courses, Coco Beach (formerly known as Trump International, Puerto Rico) boasts two top-quality layouts. Although the PGA Tour's Puerto Rico Open is contested on the Championship course, its companion, the International is arguably the more dramatic and scenic of the two. Both layouts set you off towards the spectacular forested ridge of the El Yunque National Park, but the ensuing holes then go their separate ways.

At the International's second hole, you climb to a wonderfully elevated tee-box and then play back down the hill to a small, water-defended green. Another dramatic downhill par-3 is played as the 8th hole. Between these two plunging par-3s, the layout's front-nine takes you on an immensely scenic and natural journey. The holes are often quite tight, significantly undulating and lined with dense coastal vegetation, although from many vantage points you will enjoy panoramic vistas over Coco Beach and onto the azure-blue Atlantic.

On the flatter back-nine, the long cart ride from the 10th to the 11th takes you into some tight, " tropical jungle" lined terrain, eventually connecting at the par-4 17th to an oceanside double green shared with the 12th hole of the Championship course. Apart from the more resort-style opening and closing holes of each-nine hole loop (which resonate with the Championship layout), the International provides a challenging and dramatic outing into the most natural areas of Coco Beach, Puerto Rico.

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.
