Designed by Jay Morrish and Tom Weiskopf, The Stadium Course at TPC Scottsdale was purpose-built to host the PGA Tour's Phoenix Open, and it has done so since 1987. Designed with high drama in mind, the venue is well known as one of the most exciting and fan-friendly in all of golf, which includes a thrilling finishing stretch that begins with the risk-reward 15th hole. The course plays to over 7,200 yards from the tournament tees, but golfers who play the course during their Arizona golf vacation will find the layout has more forgiving fairways than many other area desert courses. The TPC experience includes one of the most encompassing practice areas in the destination, as well as grand clubhouse that includes the Toro Restaurant and Rum Bar. TPC Scottsdale is also home to the Champions Course, which plays out of a separate facility nearby.

Great Experience - A must for every golfers bucket list!

Won't find better conditions, the greens and fairways were impeccable. This was definitely a course on my bucket list, of course any PGA tournament course makes that list. And of course the iconic 16 was great.

It's not a hard course, the sand got me into trouble, it's heavier than I expected but fair. The greens run true and remember everything breaks toward the valley :-).

We paid $106 in July so I probably won't play it again. It's nice to say I played it once and birdied number 16 :-).

Hot Day, Cold Rouind

I have to qualify what I say by the fact I simply played poorly the entire round. That said, the course was in excellent shape. But, as I have seen on other premier courses, the players somehow feel entitled to leave un-repaired ball marks. Have some courtesy for the players coming behind you--REPAIR YOUR BALL MARKS!!! As to the round itself, unless you hit 260 or better off the tee, you are advised to play from the white tees. I played the blue tees (next up from the tips), and I found myself with a long second shot into the green almost every time. I think I would have enjoyed the round more from the white tees and the opportunity to hit some precision clubs now and then into the pins. Long clubs only lead to balls in the bunkers as the pins are usually protected with bunkering. Overall, the course is not really that difficult if length is not an issue. I need to play this course again to shake off a bad round, but I will also definitely take the shorter route from the white tees.

Overmatched Old Guy

9 Handicap with 230 yard drives that decided to play from the Blue Tees. Got the challenge I was looking for. Rough was suitably punishing. Greens were hard to hit and hold. All-in-all just what I wanted...to see what the pros are up against (albeit from the back tees). Forecaddie did a great job of helping us find balls in deep rough. Troy gave helpful tips that my after-the-bike-wreck form could not capitalize upon. Course was great. Next time maybe I can bring a better game.

Amazing weather today. I am fortunate to play a lot of nice courses..
This place was in impeccable shape today. The greens are as good as it gets..
Would highly recommend this course. Obviously it’s kind of expensive.

Great conditions/cart path only

Greens and fairways are in great condition as they prepare for the WM PGA tournament in February. Stands are up. Each group has the benefit of a caddie. Thanks to Tom for his help with aiming off the tees and reading the greens, superb! Cart path only, be aware. Also allow walking, but must take an individual caddie for $125. Finished just under 4 hours with a 9:20am time. Cool to play the holes we will see on TV in a month.
