Show stopper: No. 15 at Indian Wells' Celebrity Course.

Course architect Clive Clark is one of a select group of designers to have played in the Masters, and it made an indelible impression. In his first round at Augusta National in 1968, the former British Ryder Cup player aced the 16th hole, which might explain why his design for the Celebrity Course at the Indian Wells Golf Resort is chock-full of tributes to Augusta.

Clark took the resort's existing West course and gutted it, and the result is a stunner. Admittedly there are holes on the front nine that feel shoe-horned in, but most of the east-west holes are undeniably memorable, especially the watery 237-yard, par-3 sixth, which plays straight at the San Jacinto Mountains.
