The Golf Guide to the Top Courses
Where2Golf says: 

Golfclub Wylihof: Laid out alongside the River Aare, just north of the village of Luterbach, Wylihof is generally ranked among the top echelon of Swiss golf courses. It's certainly as well-maintained and as scenic as most. Across the river to the north and west, partly wooded slopes climb up to exposed cliff-faces, which signal the start of the Jura mountains. The golf course itself occupies much flatter terrain next to the river, which quietly flows past, coming into view as you start the back-nine. The par-4 10th, par-5 11th and doglegging par-4 12th holes follow the line of the river bank, with the best of the river views coming at the par-4 12th tee. In this wonderfully quiet and natural location, what was originally a very open layout is beginning to tighten-up in places, with maturing trees and small bushes lining some of the opening and closing holes. The middle section of each nine-hole loop is still played in a distinctly open and linksy environment, with rippling mounds rather than trees lining the generally good width fairways. Water hazards play their part on some holes, as at the short doglegging par-4 7th and 12th, where club selection from the tee is important. At the testing 7th, a 7-iron may be enough for big hitters to get in position for a second shot over water. All but one of the very good collection of par-3s, bring ponds into play in front of their respective greens. The back-nine, which is wrapped around the "inner" front-nine loop, arguably has the more interesting holes, but throughout you will enjoy this pleasantly challenging, quiet and scenic layout and its excellent clubhouse facilities and restaurant.

Did you know?

Flowing past Wylihof Golf Club and visible from the 12th hole is the River Aare, a tributary of the Rhine, and the longest river that both rises and ends entirely within Switzerland. The Aare rises in the Aar glaciers of the Bernese Alps. As it emerges from the Alps the river passes through the famous Aare Gorge, where it carves through a limestone ridge near the town of Meiringen.

Where2Golf spotlights

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.
