Shark's Tooth Golf Club: This scenic and challenging Greg Norman layout is part of a private members club, which also opens its doors to guests staying at the WaterColor Inn & Resort. Forming the centrepiece of the Wild Heron residential community, the course expansively weaves its way through a wonderfully natural pine-forest, rarely intruded upon by any housing.

The front-nine's relatively even terrain has not been overly enhanced by mounding, giving a generally flattish perspective to this outward loop. Lake Powell, one of the largest coastal dune lakes in Florida, provides the setting for the front-nine's signature duo, the long par-3 5th, and the tight and testing par-5 6th.

From the tees (and crossing some fairways) you'll need to take-on some testing carries over wetland areas. Beyond the usually good-width fairways, encounters with ever-present live oaks and loblolly pines may cost you a shot or two en route to the greens. Clusters of white-sand bunkers and sandy waste areas also pose a frequent threat.

Around the subtly sloping putting surfaces there's plenty of opportunity to exercise your chipping skills. Smooth run-off areas are more in evidence than clinging rough. On the attractive and more undulating back-nine, the par-5 13th, long par-3 14th and par-4 15th provide another wonderfully scenic stretch of holes, located directly alongside Lake Powell.

Pick of the holes: closing out your round, the fabulous par-4 18th is played towards the impressive clubhouse, which beautifully frames your approach to the final green.

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 four wins out of her last four appearances on the LPGA Tour, a feat last achieved by Lorena Ochoa in 2008. Korda's win at the T-Mobile Match Play brought up her 12th LPGA Tour victory.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda’s three-in-three, when he placed second at the Houston Open. This followed back-to-back wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players. Like Korda, he remains comfortably ahead in the official world golf rankings.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
