Rankings:  4th      

The Takeaway:  With a solid design from start to finish, there is no shock the Fazio designed Corales course hosts the PGA Tour. Holes 8, 9, and 18 on the coast are fantastic and the interior holes are probably better than Teeth of the Dog, but not quite enough to overcome Dye's masterpiece in the rankings.  Grade A-
