Where2Golf says: 

Rowallan Castle Golf Club: Located between the City of Glasgow and Ayrshire's spectacular "golf coast", Rowallan Castle is the first layout in Scotland to be designed by Colin Montgomerie. Although construction of the course began in 2005, with an intended opening in 2008, the course eventually opened in 2010. The 18-hole rolling parkland, championship golf course will in time be complemented by a luxury hotel and residential development. Located near Kilmarnock, 30 minutes drive south west of Glasgow, the site is set within a 600-acre Scottish country estate, complete with 1000-year-old yew trees, trout streams, two spectacular castles, and distant views of Ailsa Craig and the Isle of Arran.

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.
