The course

PGA Tour

El Camaleon Golf Course is a 7,017-yard, par-71 resort layout designed by Greg Norman. The venue is set right on the Caribbean Sea with a number of holes nestled up against the beach.

"It's so beautiful here," Thomas said of the setting. "The beach, the golf course is pretty, so many holes on the water. It's a great, great relaxing venue and a nice way to end the PGA Tour year before we start off in Kapalua."

Because it's a resort course, the winning score typically lingers in the 20-under area, so expect plenty of low numbers this week.
