Worst course conditions I ever played in my life

Should have taken pictures. It is hard to describe the condition of the greens. They were recently aerated but I have played recently aerated greens before and this was no excuse. 40% of the "greens" was DIRT. and excoriated dirt also. The tee boxes were lousy, the fairways were AWFUL but the greens were laughable. Everyone in my foursome agreed. We played other courses in the area during the 5 days we were there (some also recently aerated) and they were light years ahead of this course. Luckily I paid only $45....but I wouldn't waste my time if it was for FREE!!!!

Play The Course The Pros Play!

The Stadium Course at PGA West is a true test of your game. It puts a premium on your approach shots as well as your tee shots. The course was in great shape and I managed to not fall victim to the infamous bunker on 16! The finishing stretch of 16,17, and 18 is one of my favorite in golf. Such variety and beauty in each hole! Can't wait to play here again.

One off Bucket List

Great facility and the golf is challenging, but not as tough as the starter would make you think. The Stadium course was on the list because it's a Tour stop. The condition in late May was only fair and our round Memorial Day weekend was 5.5 hours. Great company and getting to play 16,17 and 18 well made the day!

Fun day in the desert

Fortunately was able to get a deal time so was a really good value. The course was in great shape from tee to green. Really love the greens here. Roll true and the speed I like, firm, fast, and consistent, but not lighting quick. The only beef I have, if you want to call it that, is that some of the clientele tend not to want to fix their divots. Would definitely play here again.

Always Demanding

Golfers not loving this course are just wanting something easier . Lots of fun every hole a scenic adventure . Play the correct tees . Unless you are an honest 5 or under play the whites or blue white combo

Tough Track

Very tough course. 1 of 5 we played over a long buddies golf trip wkend. Had to play it as a bucket lister. Lots of water and bunkers that didn't make it any easier. Course was in great shape but not as pristine as when you watch the tour players come through it at the beginning of the year. Bring your A game!

Stadium Course was amazing

Pace of play was excellent and the weather was incredible. IF you can keep the ball in the fairway, you will score well. Greens were quick and hard to hold outside of 130 yards. Incredible experience and can't wait to go back next year...

Very Challenging...Beautiful Course

This was the first time I have played the Stadium course. I got a great rate on GolfNow for a 3:45pm tee time. Unfortunately, the groups ahead of me were playing rather slow and I was only able to get 16 holes in. The water and bunkers made this course tough. It was fun being able to play a course that I watch the professionals play on TV. I would definitely play it again if the price is right!

Beautiful Golf Course

Absolutely beautiful course. Different challenges on every hole challenges every aspect of your game. Only issue was pace of play- very slow. Didn’t see the Marshall out on the course once to speed things up. Started at 2:30 and wasn’t able to finish 18 holes by 8 PM due to a logjam of slow groups ahead of us.
