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.

Lovely round

We had an extremely enjoyable round. However if there is any way to limit beginners to playing a little later it might help when golfers are joined in to a four ball. I would say today we had 3 players with index’s between 10 and 20 and then a third player with no handicap and at best would be 45. Whilst we we all beginners once and cannot discriminate having a minimum index for such a course at prime time might enhance the experience. Many top European course still ask for a handicap certificate or digital version. And have a higher limit at certain prime times to keep speed of play to a sensible time and enhance every players experience.

TPC Scottsdale - Excellent Course

I played TPC Scottsdale - The Stadium Course for the first time and I was amazed how different it looks with all the people and the grandstands gone. The course was in really great shape and is very picturesque. It is worth playing again!

Second best TPC Course I've played..behind Sawgrass only

Layout is simple enough yet you feel like each hole stands alone. Bordered perfectly with grass ending and desert rock beginning. Specifically placed floral to accentuate each hole gives a little different feel on each one, for example a 20 foot tall cactus at one par three versus brightly colored flowers at another tee box.

The wildlife is so used to humans they just lay there as you hit your next shot. The birds will constantly fly into your golf cart and take your food if you're not there to prevent them.

Not a fan of not being able to drive the golf cart into the desert rocks, but I get it, don't want to tear up the carts.

Staff came by with wet cold towels.

Great halfway house at the turn.

I expected a larger, more diverse and expansive driving range but it was adequate.

Book an afternoon round at the lower price point. Not as many golfers. I'm a single and it took 2 hours, 10 minutes with me slowing down and enjoying the final 3 holes.

Lived up to the hype today

TPC Scottsdale Stadium course lived up to the hype today. Greens were the best I've seen anywhere course was in impeccable shape. I just wish I could olay it a few more times. Looks way different without the grandstands everywhere, especially the famous #16 par 3, but still tons of fun. Top rate care from the staff made it that much better.

Amazing Golf for Under $100

I have traveled to many places around the United States and have played a number of the top 100 courses in America. But this one might be the best I have ever played for the money.

I bought a late afternoon tee time in June (off season due to heat) but snagged it for $99. It was over 100 degrees at the time we tee’d off but by the back nine, the temperature was amazing and the sunset views around this place were truly spectacular. Not to mention if you are from a hot humid place in the south, this kind of heat is much dryer and more bearable.

The golf course was in great shape, and the greens were some of the best Bermuda surfaces I have played. I would compare it to Pinehurst #4 in its condition, and yet I paid $230 less than I did to play #4 in the middle of the NC hot humid July.

To play a course that is one of the most popular stops on tour each year, and it come in at a cost under $100 means if you come to Scottsdale in the summer, you have to get out to the Stadium!! Even if you come in the late fall or early spring, it would likely be worth the much larger price tag if you are a serious player, and fan of Golf.

May play at Stadium course

Greens were in good shape and running well.
Fairways could use better sand filling and a little wet/soft near the greens which causes mud and balls to stay short if flighted high.
Bunkers good. Drink cart service good.
