Course maintenance below average

This is a great golf course that charges a premium price. 3 days prior to us playing there was an inch of rain. Standing water in low areas and in a few traps. We rented a house on the 11th hole and never saw a maintenance crew attempt to fix issues. They cut the greens but don’t make the final cut around the perimeter of the green.
If you are charging a prescription price the course should be in premium condition. You can’t take short cuts. Issues on the course have to be addressed immediately.

Horrible bunkers

The course was immaculate, tees, fairways and greens. However the sand traps were hard packed and very little sand. Not worthy of the course or the price they charge

Absolutely Top Notch

Might not be cheap but in my mind it is worth every penny. I am a big Sawgrass fan so there is no doubt I love this track. Playing from the golds about 5,800 yards is just so much fun. All the grasses are in terrific shape. Always remember Pete Dye giveth and he takes away.

From the practice facilities to the 19th hole. We immensely enjoyed ourselves. Course was still in tournament shape and gave a good idea of how impressive of what tour pros can do.

Perfect conditions

What a great deal we found on GolfNow at the last minute! The Stadium Course is not fair, but life is not fair either as per Pete Dye. We could not have had better conditions on this date, and playing it forward was a must for our bunch. Well done if you can shoot your hdcp on this track.

PGA West TPC Stadium Course - Amazing!

Jan 27th ... Sometimes "Too Good to be True", is really a good deal. Booked a 1:48 pm T-Time at PGA West TPC Stadium Course on GolfNow for $60.00, arrived early and was welcomed by everyone from the guys at the front door to the Pro-Shop staff & Starter, they were more than accommodating. Got hooked up with a 3 some from Minneapolis went out at 1:30 pm, we finished at 5:08 pm, what an amazing course & experience, played from the Whites they were difficult enough, lost 2 balls #6 in water & #15 in yard/bushes, made 2 birdies, had a few 3 putts, shot 40/42=82, had to pinch myself more than once to make sure I wasn't dreaming, a really fun day on a tough course, that the Pro's recently made the game look easy!

Pace of play was slow as we had two novice golfers in front of us. Course is difficult one needs to pick the best tees for the skill of their ability

Awesome

Played PGA West Stadium course today. I shot a 91, which is phenomenal since I haven't played back home since October. There is a ton of sand and lots of water. If your ok with that, it is great. We got lucky as there was no one ahead of us and no one behind us. So cool to play a course a week before the pros are there. Can't wait to watch them next week.

Rock hard greens

For the money, I expected a more manicured course. They need to up the maintenance, particularly the front nine

Tough as advertised

Course in great shape, pace of play was reasonable. Tough, visually intimidating course, but fair. Fairways, bunkers, and greens all in pristine condition. On the pricey side...but worth it.
