pinggolf55,

We thank you for choosing to play TPC Scottsdale knowing you have many options of great golf courses. We do have a great group of caddies this season, which really adds to the experience on the Stadium course. Conditions are still great post Waste Management Phoenix Open. How do you compare it to Chambers Bay? Thank you for visiting from Tacoma.

Thank you for choosing to play TPC Scottsdale on your visit from CT. Playing with the grandstands still up is a fun and unique experience on the Stadium course. Just try to image 16,000 screaming fans on hole 16 as your enter the tunnel. We hope to see you back in TPC Scottsdale in the future - maybe stop by for the next WM Phoenix Open.

The course is really fun to play. It is pricey considering they dial down the speed of the greens pre WM Open. I love the layout and the ambiance.

The experience wasn't worth the price but the last 4 holes are amazing. You always leave satisfied.

The pace was excellent. We teed off around 1 pm and still got in under 4 hours.

For all the forecaddies, the bunkers weren't in great conditions. For the price of mandatory FCs, there should not be a mis-raked bunker. FC did a good job.

Greens were okay - slower than the rest of the courses we played by alot (Southern Dunes, Talking Stick North)

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. Playing the Stadium course around the time of the WMPO is a unique experience. Your comments regarding the bunkers and green speed have been forwarded to our maintenance department; and will be reviewed as we strive to provide an experience our customers expect from a TPC property. I hope you will consider playing at TPC Scottsdale in the future - next time you should try the Champions course as it is also a very well-maintained and challenging golf course.

Best,

Eia,

Thank you for your comments and for choosing to play TPC Scottsdale on your visit to Arizona. I'm not sure what date you played, but I"m sorry to hear you were not well notified of our CPO requirement at this time of year. The Stadium is cart path only from overseeding to the TOUR event in early February. Conditions are excellent right now and golfers will begin to notice faster greens and higher roughs as we get closer to tournament time. I hope you have an opportunity to come back and play TPC Scottsdale again - maybe try the Champions course next time.

Thank you,

TPC Scottsdale Management Team

So glad you enjoyed the course. There is lots of great golf in Scottsdale, so it's nice to hear we provided the experience you were looking for. There are changes daily on the Stadium course as the grandstands continue to go up on holes 16-18. We are all looking forward to the WMPO in February. Come back and see us again soon.

I didn't give it an Excellent rating because they had just opened it after September overseeing. Fairways were thick and the was almost no roll. Greens were also super slow. Guess October is not the month to play in it. I am sure this venue with the super layout and its difficulty is a must play course. Have to come back and play it under normal conditions.

PJ5957795,

You came a long way to play TPC Scottsdale. We know you have a lot of options so we thank you for choosing TPC. The Stadium course is a great course, but you happened to come at a time where most of us in Scottsdale are overseeding. Greens are a bit furry and much slower than usual. I hope you have another opportunity to visit from San Juan. November through April is ideal.

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback.

It should be a must play on everyones list. They truly treat you like a pro. The final four holes are truly my favorite 4 finishing four holes in golf. 15 is a long par 5 with an Island green .16 is in my opinion one of the easiest holes on the course only play 168 yards to a back pin. 17 is a short par 4 that you can drive the green on and 18 is beautiful with the clubhouse and the mountains in the background.

Nashhays,

We appreciate you taking the time to give us your feedback about your experience at TPC Scottsdale. The final four holes on the Stadium course are by far the most talked about. I think hole 15 is one of the most beautiful and interesting holes with water on the left and the island green. Hole 16 is relatively easy, but now imagine 16,000 fans screaming at you as you attempt to hit and hold the green. For anyone who plays between November and April we include a complimentary forecaddie experience - almost like the pros. The WMPO is in a few weeks. The holes you enjoy so much will look like completely different holes with all the grandstands. Thank you for choosing TPC Scottsdale.

Best,

TPC Scottsdale Management

played on a Wednesday and the weather was great. Overcast and a slight breeze, which made the first few holes (started on 10) a little more difficult.

the course was in great shape and the greens were fast and true.

pace of play was also great, although i didn't want to rush thru and not totally enjoy this awesome course.

my only complaint would be that i wish they had more time available when the rates are under $100.

i would definitely play a few times.

Conditions are good on Stadium right now as we will begin preparations for the WMPO soon. Our rates will be going up the end of this week but there will be some online specials running throughout the next couple months. You can also get word of individual and buddy group specials in our weekly email newsletters. Mark your calendar for Scottsdale Golf Week December 5 - lots of great things happening in the area during that time.

Thank you for taking the time to give us your review. It is a much different playing experience when the structures for the WMPO are up. In fact, they will start to go up early October. Most golfers don't even recognize hole 16 when the structures aren't there. Think about visiting again in January when the stands are nearly complete.

After attending the Phoenix Open many years, I played this course with a friend to mark it off our bucket list. We both were somewhat disappointed after our afternoon round. The course just seemed like many other nice courses in the area, but just more expensive. Unfortunately, it rained that morning and it was cart path only. That never helps your golf experience, especially when you have very high expectations for the course. The fairways were only in okay shape, but it has been a rough summer. The green were in better shape with many undulations to make it challenging. The course does play long. Everyone working at the course was very helpful and friendly. Would I recommend it to a friend? Only if you have never played it. There is much better value in the metro area.

rkolisar,

Your feedback is valuable to us. We've only had a couple rainstorms this summer and it sounds like you happened to play after one. The Stadium Course is definitely a 'bucket list' for so many golfers. It's really fun to play when the structures are up for the WMPO. Hopefully, you'll have a chance to play again when we have peak conditions.

Thank you,

Staff at the bag drop seemed disinterested. Golf shop and cart girl saved the day. Neat to play the holes you see on tv. Water on about every 6 holes. Could've used some more of those considering it was 108 degrees. Course conditions were very good tee to green. I guess I just expected more for the rate that they charge.

I know it's summer time but the tournament tee boxes weren't cut; the greens were slow and bumpy; and the staff was over watering in spots causing significant damages. However, I was impressed with the conditions of the bunkers and the fairways and cuts around the greens. The starters were very cordial, as were the outside staff operating the bag drop. The Marshall's weren't helpful but not said anything if you were a 1/2 a hole behind. Truly wish the greens were in better shape and the approach areas weren't sloppy wet.
