Where2Golf says: 

Marina Bay Golf Course represented a breakthrough in Singapore when it arrived in 2006 - the island's first (and much needed) public-access championship golf course. Located just a short sand wedge from the sea (which is only briefly glimpsed at the par-4 5th) this new and attractive layout brims with links-like features, inspired by the classic courses of Scotland.

Most notable among Marina Bay's links credentials are the deep, revetted-style bunkers that fiercely guard the greens and fairways. Appearing at just about every hole, and often three or more at a time, these fearsome sand traps will often cost you a stroke, requiring a sideways shot out.

The layout's links character is further reinforced by square cut tee-boxes, rolling-undulating fairways, sea breezes and a relative lack of trees. With many water hazards in play and shiny silver floodlights outnumbering the trees, there are however a few notable departures from a pure Scottish thoroughbred. The island-green par-3 13th is a rare bird on a natural seaside links course, as is the par-6 4th ... the only par-6 hole in Singapore.

As you get further into the inner-loop of the back-nine, you may feel the need to see more variety and a change of view from the ever-present Singapore city skyline. You may also be getting a bit bunker weary. If scenic variations are not on hand, then there is always the chance to admire the excellent green-keeping and course presentation, very high-quality for a public-facility. Ah, the joys of links golf, albeit without too many sea views!

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.
