This wooded, stream-slashed D.C.-area venue will host the Quicken Loans National in June. Formerly known as the TPC at Avenel, a ho-hum layout that hosted the Tour from 1987 through 2006, the course was renovated and reopened in 2009. It subsequently hosted the 2010 Constellation Energy Senior Players Championship and the Web.com Tour's 2012 and 2013 Neediest Kids Championships.

This month, the WGC-Mexico Championship will introduce Tour players to this venerable, tree-lined 1920s track near Mexico City, which boasts slender fairways, uphill closing holes and compelling views of the capital (aka "The City of Palaces"). Roberto De Vicenzo, Ben Crenshaw and Jay Haas all won Mexican Open titles here.

Quail Hollow welcomes the 2017 PGA Championship in August, so pinch-hitting in May as the host of the Wells Fargo Championship is this gorgeous Tom Fazio creation in Wilmington, N.C. The course edges the Intracoastal Waterway and features bold, handsomely sculpted bunkers and vast, rippling greens.

Glen Oaks Club
Northern Trust replaces Barclays as title sponsor of the first FedEx Cup Playoff event, in late August, at Long Island's Glen Oaks Club. The 1971 Joe Finger design was reworked by Joel Weiman and boasts superb conditioning, courtesy of superintendent Craig Currier, who formerly tended the blades at Bethpage Black.

In June, the U.S. Open pays its first visit to this public-access, 11-year-old Michael Hurdzan- Dana Fry design (with Ron Whitten consulting). Located 35 miles northwest of Milwaukee, the course occupies a massive, topsy-turvy spread of ridges, dunes and fescue grasses, lending a linksy, Ireland-in-the-Heartland ambience. Of course, no Emerald Isle track stretches to 7,812 yards, as this one does.
