Designed by Jay Morrish and Tom Weiskopf, The Stadium Course at TPC Scottsdale was purpose-built to host the PGA Tour's Phoenix Open, and it has done so since 1987. Designed with high drama in mind, the venue is well known as one of the most exciting and fan-friendly in all of golf, which includes a thrilling finishing stretch that begins with the risk-reward 15th hole. The course plays to over 7,200 yards from the tournament tees, but golfers who play the course during their Arizona golf vacation will find the layout has more forgiving fairways than many other area desert courses. The TPC experience includes one of the most encompassing practice areas in the destination, as well as grand clubhouse that includes the Toro Restaurant and Rum Bar. TPC Scottsdale is also home to the Champions Course, which plays out of a separate facility nearby.

Excellent?

We went to the course to experience the stadiums that are in place this time of year. That in itself is worth the expense one time. However, this was my 3rd. time to do this, so other factors came into play. The forecaddie system is mandatory, and personally I don't enjoy it. There is a lot of talking with the caddie trying to engage with all 4 members of the foursome and it did not help the pace of play. Our round was about 4.5 hrs.

One of the most fun rounds I’ve played

Our trip to TPC Scottsdale might be one of the most enjoyable rounds I’ve played. The entire day was a great experience. I’ve watched the tournament on TV so many times but actually playing it was even more fun than I thought it would be.

The practice facility might be the nicest I’ve ever seen. With an afternoon time, we were sent off No. 10 to start, I think to make sure we got to play the closing stretches of holes that are so well known. We stopped to see the “Tiger” plaque in the desert left on 13 and that was cool to see. As a hacker, it was amazing to par holes 15-17! My tee shot on 16 probably would have been booed as I JUST missed the green. My ball was a few inches onto the collar but I two-putted for a 3. No. 18 is a monster and the tee shot for the pros from the back tees looks terrifying.

After the high of playing the famous inward nine, the front nine was just OK. I was surprised there were so many houses close to the cart paths on the first couple holes. The green complex on 3 with all the tiers was extremely difficult to putt. The par 3s on 4 and 7 are challenging but the last two holes weren’t that interesting to us as we were rushing to finish before it got dark.

No doubt that it is a REALLY costly round but needs to be experienced at least once. I’m glad I played it and can check it off my bucket list. Not so sure I’d want to play it again, mostly due to the price, but would happily do so at a cheaper rate. Can’t wait to watch the WMPO!

Good experience

Good experience at a challenging course. It was nice to have the caddy for course knowledge and to keep the pace of play up. We completed 18 in about 4:15. Felt like a gladiator on 16 with the pavilion already up, lucky the workers didn’t boo me when I missed the green to the left! Will definitely play there again.

Had a blast

It was an atypical hot September. However, that didn't stop my from having a great time and a great round. Everything was immaculate from tee to green. Greens were moderate in pace with nothing too crazy,

There are much better in the area!

TPC Stadium is by far the most over-rated course in the Phoenix / Scottsdale area. Conditions were sub par. Staff was not friendly at all. I would highly recommend playing a better track for cheaper such as Troon North, We Ko Pa, Quintero, and many, many others out here!

Not what I expected

Customer service was horrible from the very first moment we walked in. On course conditions were not good. Pace of play was very very slow. Amenities on the golf course were not great no water on a very hot summer day. Flew in all the way from San Antonio to play a few courses this course did not meet my expectations if you want value for your money visit troon North much better course.
