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.

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.

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.

Great Mixture

Having a chance to see and play this course before the PGA Waste Management does in early 2020 was a great thrill. Crews were diligently working on the Grand Stands and cosmetics, and never was anyone in the way. The course is beautiful, and the mix of yardages makes the course playable for all abilities. The staff was cheerful and our caddie Matt was awesome.
Thank you very much.

Enjoyable experience

TPC Stadium was a blast to play with the familiarity of so many holes from annual TV coverage of the WM Phoenix Open. The front nine plays surprisingly long and has a few tight tee shots. The back nine is where some of the most famous holes in modern golf are found in particular, 15-18. 11 is the toughest hole on the property and 14 is second toughest. 15 and 17 are true risk reward holes and would be exciting to play each and every time. Having the majority of grandstands up added an unique and very cool experience. Course was in very good shape although the fairways and greens played much softer than I’m sure they will play come late January. Pace of play was not great as we played in over 4.5 hours. Green fees are on the pricey side but a twilight tee time is a much better value. Range and practice areas are great. I would strongly recommend especially if you can get any kind of bargain for less than the expensive rack rate for the sake of playing holes you can see each year on TV and a great atmosphere being right in the heart of Scottsdale. TPC Stadium is an overall good golf course and facility.

Amazing round!! with perfect weather, course, and partners

I have expected this round because this is one of the PGA tour course.

There had been severe rain 2 days ago, however, it was clear on the day. I joined with the other three partners who had good manners, nice play pace, and encouraged each other.

This is the first rounding in U.S. which I played with a caddie. He was funny and talked a lot of useful information to us.

Overall, the course status was fantastic, weather was amazing, and it will be my memorable rounding forever.

Fantastic

The course is in fantastic shape! The bleachers are up right now, So to play the 16th was mind blowing! This is really a 100 dollar course but to get the professional experience it’s gonna cost you another hundred. But totally worth it.

Epic day at TPC Scottsdale Stadium course

It was an incredible day in Scottsdale! Light breeze & the course was in great shape. The second cut of rough was pretty deep - hard to find your ball sometimes. Bring extra balls!

As advertised

Always have to say it is really cool to play a course that the pros play. The course has only been open a week since the summer shutdown and the conditions couldn’t be any better. The greens were smooth and rolled true. The sand was powder and the fairways perfect. 17 is a great risk reward hole because you can either drive the green or end up in the water on the left. 16 is the stadium hole and it really is unrecognizable without the grandstands. It’s a short 150 yard par 3 with nothing to it. 15-18 are really a great finishing set. Was told by the staff that the champions course is the tougher of the two so try and hit that course too.
