A brutal test of golf

The Stadium course gets the respect of all golfers including professionals. When this course was built, persimmon woods and blade irons were the norm. No 460 drivers to easily hit your target. The Stadium today strikes fear and respect into players with modern equipment so imagine what it was like in the 1980s.

Flat lies are seldom. Miss your alley was and you will likely be in golf purgatory until you dig out back into play. The moons surface is between tee and green so club choice and a solid swing is paramount to get you around this track with some sanity remaining. It's a beautiful layout and a PGA West trophy. A must play

Every hole is different

Every hole is different and a challenge. You need to decided on a plan for each hole and then execute your plan. Any errant shots will be penalized, either by find water, or by making the next shot much harder. Just a really fun place to play. The finishing hole, 15-18 are fairly unique. The deep bunker left of 16 green is interesting, if your not in it. The sand most around 12 can be a challenge to negotiate too.

Worth experiencing, just don’t expect to have a great score.

Got to play at least once in your life

This is a unique course. On most holes you need to hit the ball very exactly lots of water, sand and elevation changes. Hole 5, called double trouble, gives you two chances to hit it in the water, one on the left and the other on the right. All the par 3s are interesting, with the iconic 17th, not nearly as hard as the 6th. The bunker left of the 16th should be experienced, as it’s unique, but so is the bunker on 12, which is a moat of sand around the green. Just unique and fun, but expect to make some bad scores on at least a few holes.

Beautiful but tough course

This course is fantastic. However, with many undulating fairways and greens it is very tough. Great track.

I admit I Am Biased

So my parents live on this course so I am a bit biased, but this is my favorite of the PGA West courses. I usually play either the back tees or one up from the back tees and I swear to God I swear like I have lost a fistfight every time I walk off the course. You have to hit every shot in the bag out here!

Only bad thing is sometimes you can get the tourist players out here who really don't belong playing such a tough course, but there are usually marshals cruising around all day.

If youre a single digit handicap planning a trip with the boys, this is a must play!

Not as tough but still...

Since Pete Dye came out to redesign the course it has been tamed quite a bit. It used to be a monster with every fairway lined with waist high bushes on all of the mounds (and 6.5 hour rounds). With the redesign it is still a beast but you can make some loose shots and still recover now. The fairways were pristine, tees in great shape, and greens a bit on the slower side than normal but still running very smooth. Come on out, you won't regret it. I was a bit disappointed on the first tee when I found out that I paid $175 through GolfNow and the 3some I was with paid $125. Not sure how they got that rate but you should know that it's out there if you can find it.

This was our last round before leaving Palm Springs heading back to Alberta. Good customer service from. When you are met to getting on the course. Course in great shape. Challenging and narrow fairways. You had to think about your next shot.
When walking across the bridge on the 17th hole, Alcatraz, interesting to note that many PGA golfers had walked the same bridge.

Fantastic!

Beautiful course, great condition. unbeatable scenic vistas. Loved every minute of it. Very playable if you choose appropriate tee blocks and you're not hitting it all over the yard. Friendly staff. Eat and drink at Ernie's patio afterward to prolong a great day

Playing like the Pros

It was a great course to get a sense of what the Pros encounter even though not playing from the ‘tips’.
Nice idea to clearly make the entry and exits to the fairways. Areas of the course were quite dry and browned out.
Given this was first time playing the course we found it difficult to navigate around the many ,many bunkers. The GPS was not very helpful in many cases in order to be able to see bunkers behind rolls and hills. Greens were purported to be running at 11 in many instances they were much slower but rolling consistently.
Overall it was a tough test of golf, given it was our first time out for the season, it was probably not the best choice to start on. I would definitely play the course again.

Super Stadium

What a track!! I listened to the staff and jumped up to the White tees. What a stellar piece of advice. I was able to really enjoy the course and reach the greens. Unreal condition. Keep up the pace so you can take pics and videos at the 17th.

High expectations met

We had very high expectations playing this course. And the day was perfect.
Perfect condition, perfect layout. As difficult as we were fearing, but worth every dollar.
Don’t forget to bring your sand wedge, preferably a 62 degrees!
