Shalimar Pointe Country Club: Tucked away in the quiet surroundings of Shalimar on the western shore of Choctawhatchee Bay, Shalimar Pointe is a busy and popular member of the Emerald Coast's burgeoning array of fine golf courses. Although the two nine-hole loops weave through a residential development, for most of the time the housing is unobtrusive and set well back.

There are many excellently crafted holes, usually lined by a pleasant scattering of oaks and pines. Rolling mounds and stylish bunkering also provide good definition to each hole, as well as a challenging array of defences. Water hazards take the form of ponds that sit menacingly alongside six of the greens.

This well-maintained, fun and challenging layout combines a good array of straight and doglegging holes. A mix of good-width and some tighter holes are flanked by a combination of well crafted bunkers and sandy waste areas, with the Emerald Coast's sandy duneland much in evidence beyond some of the fairways.

The subtly-sloping putting surfaces can sometimes present a relatively slim target, requiring accurate approach shots to avoid the awaiting water and/or bunkers. The par-4 12th and par-3 16th are played to an opulently sized double-green.

Choctawhatchee Bay is glimpsed on occasions, but alas none of the holes are played directly along its shoreline. Arguably the layout's best holes are found on the back-nine, with the excellent, though bunkerless, long par-4 17th bringing you to one of those threateningly water-defended greens.

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with five wins out of her last five starts on the LPGA Tour. Winning the Chevron Championship also brought the second major championship win of her career.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda's five wins in five starts, when he placed second at the Houston Open. Either side of that, he won The Arnold Palmer, The Players, and then The Masters and The Heritage.
