Enjoyed playing this course immensely. The layout and views were great. The greens are very large and flat and quite easy to read. What you saw you got! The fairways and the rough were lush due to overseeding and lots of watering. However, there was not much sand in the bunkers (just a thin coating over hard stuff) and greens were very firm and not holding that well much as you would see on a high traffic public course. They were in preparation for January's Waste Management PGA tournament so traps and greens were not ready and there was lots of construction with the construction of the bleachers going on. Our assigned caddy was superb!

This is a premium course at a premium price but really fun as the spectator stands are being constructed for the WM Open. The 16th hole is particularly great since you are in the stadium as the tour players will be. One drawback is cart path only until Feb 5 but with a fore caddy things went pretty well. Not sure I would pay the full price but deals can usually be found if you are flexible.

The only reason why this course is receiving two stars is because of staff members Taylor and Corby. Taylor agreed to move our tee time up so that we would be able to finish before dark; at the range Corby pointed out the new tee time required a forecaddie, which we did not want or need. Taylor came down and it was agreed we would go out ten minutes later...a one hour open block of time with no other golfers booked. Sweet!

(Keep this in mind - all groups ahead of us had a forecaddie for every two players.)

And then it started going downhill. The pace of play management was absolutely horrible! By the time we made the turn, there were three - yes, three! - groups waiting on the box. Being ever the optimist, we patiently (or not so much) wait. At this point the entire rhythm of the game is shot to smitherenes and we sat for so long between shots that we were frustrated. As we finished 13, there were now four groups waiting on 14. Oh, heck no! We are done with this BS and head back to the clubhouse.

As we pass the groups we notice that while the lead group on 14 is just approaching the green, the group on 15 is also approaching and the group on 16 is replacing the pin. How in the world does this happen - ESPECIALLY when there are fore caddies?! For a world renown TPC course, this is absolutely unacceptable. For a round of golf that can go for more than $200, it is insulting.

When I voiced my complaint to the manager in the pro shop, his repeated parroted response was, "I'm sorry you did not have an enjoyable experience."

Don't spend money here just because it is a designated TPC or because No. 16 gets you all misty eyed when watching a tournament on television. Those are the only two things this highly overrated course has to offer.

1:40 tee time we did not finish

Later tee times jumped a lot of holes and got in front of us to golf 15, 16, 17, & 18 the better holes

The pace of play was great until then

Had a long wait after that!!!!!

Of course at TPC Scottsdale you are going to expect a beautiful and challenging course, and that it was you got. That said, it the was little things such as no range balls and we showed up an hour early to hit a few before our round. We teed off at 1:50 assuming plenty of time to fish out round and as of 16, we couldn't see our balk anymore it had got so dark - TPC, you should let us know we won't get 18 on - can blame them completely though, the group ahead put us behind 25 mins through 9 holes at which groups behind us were pushing on us, but we had no where to go and we didn't see a Marshall the entire round. The staff was great, pro shop crew were accommodating - would I play there again, probably not only because $225CAD is quite a bit for a course - been there, done that now.

Thoroughly enjoy plating this course from the time of arrival until the final putt. The staff are super friendly and go out of their to assist. The course was in perfect shape and setup up for all level of golfers based on the tee block chosen. This was the second time playing the Stadium course and can't wait for the opportunity to play it again.

We were surprised about the very beautiful planted islands and waste areas. The fairways and greens are in best conditions. For this and for the popularity of this course we think the high greenfee rate($165,- per Person) is ok. But The marshal on the course stressed us although we were fast enough. This is unecessery. And the cooler on the card was filled with ice but no water bottles were offered. On every other much cheaper courses in Arizona we always got complementary water bottles. This was also surprising for us.

109oF is usually unbearable unless you're playing the stadium course in Scottsdale. Being a local, we watching the pros play and that is pretty cool - playing it is even better.

All things considered, its not an overly difficult course if you can stay out of the rough.

We played for $90. I know that it goes for like twice that much in the winter. Other than its PGA pedigree, I don't know why its soooo expensive outside of summer months.

Will play it again... next summer.

Snowbird friend from Wisconsin came back mid-August and wanted to play golf "somewhere we don't get to play in the winter", so I booked TPC Scottsdale Stadium course. He shot Par on #16, I got a bogie, no cheering or booing!! We had a great time and enjoyed our round. Course is in great shape.
