TPC Scottsdale has earned a host of honors, including a spot among the top three Arizona golf facilities for service and among the "Top 50 Golf and Resort Destinations in the World," the latter by no less than Conde Nast Traveler.

The Champions Course at TPC Scottsdale sits where the Desert Course did, but offers the thrills of golfing a new course, this one designed by architect Randy Heckenkemper, who did his best to fit the new golf course into the untouched desert land that surrounds it.

The Champions Course at TPC Scottsdale rivals its better-known sibling golf course, the Stadium Course, with all the good looks and good golf one might expect in the Scottsdale area.

Kind of expected more

First time playing TPC Champions course. Greens are great, but everything else was just ok. There are much better values in this area. They really need to cut the price in half for what they have here.

TPC Golf with Friend

Nice course. Lots of challenges, fair if you play the fairways. Pace of play was s bit slow at first but the marshal prompt the group in front of us and play improved on the back nine. I will play this course again when the price go down when snowbirds leave the area.

Excellent TPC

Very enjoyable experience. Shared cart with another single. Interesting guy. Played with female twosome. Had a great time. All were experienced golfers who knew the etiquette of playing golf. . Played from white tees. I like the short par 3's. Makes the average golfer feel like they have a chance to hit a green and make a birdie.

Great course but overpriced

Course was in great shape, greens were smooth and fast. But for $185 I was expecting a larger driving range and a full service restaurant. Staff was friendly and beverage service was timely. However our cart ran out of power on the 14th hole and was not replaced until we finished the 15th hole. Do not feel we got what we paid for in green fees and what we expected for that exorbitant price.

Awesome experience

This course was certainly beautiful although we wanted to play the Stadium Course. The staff and the twosome we played with, pace of play and the whole experience made it a great round. The course itself was amazing although the view was not as beautiful as the Stadium side but it gives us a.readon to come back.

TPC Champions was in great shape.

Third time playing here. All three times it has been an enjoyable experience. The sand in the bunkers is perfect. I wish more courses used this sand. Greens roll true. I will definitely be back.

TPC Wednesday

Had a great day! The staff let us on early, which we really appreciated. We completed the round in 3:45, which was excellent. The course was in great shape, though some of the greens were slow. Several holes are very challenging, good shots are rewarded. A beautiful Desert course with wonderful Mountain View’s. All the staff were friendly and helped make this a great first time visit. We definitely plan to come back!!

Great winter condition. Expensive rental clubs

Course was in very good shape with spectacular views of the mountains. The greens were not too fast, but they were smooth.

Rental clubs were $80 which seemed a little steep as we got a green fee for $68. I was not prepared for this. Also they did not have any stiff shafted sets, which seems like a reasonable request. They had to go across the road to the stadium course and put together a set, which was nice of the staff to do (I guess). Other than that, the value was good.

Uninspiring layout. Many copy and paste par 4s. I would say the par 3s are the most memorable. However the green complexes were very cool with multiple tiers and tricky pins.

Overall good condition value for the green fees and only having time to play one course while in town on limited funds this felt like the right choice.

great condition and challenging

Really enjoyed the Champions course today. We played in 3 hours teeing off around 9am. Course is in great condition and has some very challenging holes. Green held a good shot and speeds were good, not too fast.

New Year golf

Nice course. Great shape. Perfect greens. Nice tee boxes. Good price. Challenging layout. Friendly staff. Easy to find. 90 degree rules slightly unecessary and time consuming. And small practice facilities. Overall would play again.
