Where2Golf says: 

Orchid Country Club: Located in the northern part of Singapore alongside the expansive Lower Seletar Reservoir, Orchid CC has three nine-hole loops, each named after a famous orchid. All 27-holes are available for night golf. The Dendro and Vanda nines have both been recently refurbished and offer wonderfully open, linksy, lakeside golf. Playing alongside the wide reservoir creates a distinctly seaside feel, while the relatively sparse population of trees, square-cut tee-boxes, rolling fairways and excellent bunkering reinforce Orchid's links-like credentials. The gently undulating, open terrain provides several nicely elevated tee-boxes, as well as wonderful views onto the lake, with Seletar Country Club in the distance on the opposite bank. Water hazards are often in play here, either the lake itself or creeks cutting in from it. The most dangerous of these creeks meanders through Vanda's short par-5 6th hole (a hole that also boasts an orchid shaped bunker). With plenty of breezes coming off the lake, there are times, not least on the occasionally narrower Vanda course, when accuracy rather than length is what's needed from the tee. The mainly elevated greens usually require a high approach shot into them to clear the ever-present (and often deep) greenside bunkering. When safely on the putting surface the challenge lies in unravelling their many slopes and borrows. The Aranda course, also brings you down to the lakeside for three holes, and following its impending refurbishment, it will join the other two as an equally playable, testing and high-quality layout.

At this Stay & Play venue, the on-site accommodation is located close to the golf facilities.

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.
