PGA WEST Jack Nicklaus Tournament Course

PGA WEST Jack Nicklaus Tournament Course

The Nicklaus Tournament Course is truly one of Nicklaus' best. This course is a remarkable test of golf where accuracy is rewarded and errant shots are severely penalized. Visible plateau landing areas, firm elevated greens and jagged bunkers will leave a lasting impression on golfers of every level. The PGA WEST Jack Nicklaus Tournament course is ranked among Golf Magazine's "Top 100 Courses You Can Play" in the United States.

PGA WEST Greg Norman Course

PGA WEST Greg Norman Course

Golf courses are made in the image of their creators, and Norman, a.k.a. "the Shark," is known for an aggressive style of play. On a Norman design, the risk-reward ratio is highly correlated, and those who spend strokes on safe shots may wind up feeling like shark chum. Yet, Norman insists the measure of great course is playability for a variety of levels.
