The PGA Tour’s CareerBuilder Challenge event (once known as the Bob Hope Classic) used both the Nicklaus Tournament course (featuring two island greens) and Pete Dye’s TPC Stadium course at PGA West to co-host the championship in 2016.

Daniel Wexler commented as follows in the Palm Springs Area Golf Guide: “Also opening in 1986 was the Nicklaus Tournament course, another big (if occasionally overcooked) facility which would surely garner more attention were it not situated immediately adjacent to the Stadium.

Water is actually used somewhat sparingly here (it meaningfully affects only six holes) though with the exception of dry entries like the 549-yard 4th, the 364-yard split-fairway 6th and the 528-yard 11th, it is the primary factor on most of the layout’s more memorable tests.”

Jack Nicklaus will forever be associated with greatness on the golf course, but it’s his design work that should also be remembered in equal measure to his magnificent competitive achievements on the links.
