Breaking news? That speculation started last week, With no facts either way.
Cypress decided on their own to opt out of the former Crosby Clambake due to PGA rules about club membership. It probably is too short for current PGA pros with today's technology though. 
I think the reason the OP didn't get any responses initially is the deliberately provocative thread title. So what if she's attractive and uses her looks? I can name a number of female and male athletes that have done the same. She's a nice lady with a smoking body. Not the best golfer on the LPGA but she competes on occasion.
Based on my current game which is probably close to a 21 handicap, I'd hit driver off the tee (assuming I'm playing from 507 yards), then a hybrid short of the first set of bunkers then some sort of wedge to the green. 
Van Pelt knows more about golf than most of us. Do you know he started years ago with The Golf Channel before moving to ESPN and becoming part of their cult of personality? 
I played the South Course after the first redo in about 2006. As long as you play from the correct tees it's not a bear. You can play the Gold tees at under 6100 yards with a men's slope of 129. There are not a ton of traps and I doubt the rough is normally 4" tall. It's a flat course. Really nothing special IMO.
No single player. I first started golfing in the early 1970's and of course at that time Jack Nicklaus was the most dominant player as well as captivating to watch. A few basic principles of my setup are text book Nicklaus from reading Golf My Way. But the true influence on my interest in the game was the opportunity to golf with my best friends on a fine Saturday.
I also live in SE Michigan and I have never heard of amateur tours in our area. There are tournaments for higher handicap golfers like you and I once in a while. You may want to contact the Michigan PGA who may be more helpful.    You can look into joining a golf league at a local course. These are plentiful in our area.
Because so many said exactly the same before the 2013 season. How did that turn out?
In early May about 15 years ago I was playing at the Garland Resort which is about 3 hours north of Detroit. This was a yearly weekend outing, 36 on Friday and 36 on Saturday but in Michigan that time of year is hit or miss. That afternoon was sunny but about 40 with periodic snow. It was great fun due to the nature of the foursome and we drank a lot of hot chocolate that day. I don't mind playing when it's in the 40's as long as the sun is out and the wind is down.
