Type Resort
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.

In good shape for just being over seeded.

We finished up in just under 4 hours, had a great round for it being cart path only. There was a bit of waiting. They are recovering from the storms and seeding areas again. Definitely play again.

Best of Summer

I've been wanting to play this course for awhile and I'm glad I finally did. This is the nicest course I've played for a few years. I play about once a week all around the valley but have never checked this place out till now. The course was in pristine condition and for our summer this is outstanding. Most of the courses I've played have had lots of trouble with the hot weather but TPC has it figured out. The greens were some of the best and the layout is great.

Saw a great price on GolfNow and decided to play a TPC course with my friends. I was not disappointed as everything was up to our expectations.

Best course in Phoenix

Fairways, rough and greens were the best of the nice courses we have played this week. The layout of the course was very nice, much better then the Stadium course.

This is a must play course, you will be glad you played here, it’s is very nice.

Nice course

Just aerated the greens, but still not bad. Course was in great condition. Lots of 'water hazards' with the recent rain. Cart girl was MIA, found out she crashed??? Fun round for a good value.

Course Conditions

Fairways lost as a result of too much salt in the soil. This should be disclosed at time of booking otherwise the customer is left with a disappointing experience vs had I "expected some fairways to be compromised" I would have had a better experience in knowing what I was getting my client into..

Great layout but terrible condition

The Champipns Course is in my opinion a better layout than TPC stadium course. However, this is the first time I played the Champions course that it was not in good condition. The fairways had large areas without ANY grass and the greens were slow and bumpy!

Fun and challenging course

It was a pleasure to play from well maintained bunkers (sand traps). Overall, the course was in pretty good condition. There were 2 or 3 fairways that were not in good shape, but we were warned of the problem before we paid. The greens were excellent (fast and true). A very challenging course well worth the money this time of year.

Nice layout.

Finally a course in Arizona with nice sand in their bunkers and not dirt. A good layout with lots of different shots needed. Greens were quick as well.

Desert Course - I survived!

Hotter than hadis day - tee time 8:45 am - 1:15

Temp > 104

Course difficult enough without excessive heat.

Would love to play again under better conditions!

Challenging course

Like the other TPC courses, the Champions course caters to the golfer. The staff is fantastic, always ready to help you. The course is laid out nicely, and in good shape. The challenging greens were also in great shape and putted true. This course is not as nice as the Stadium course, but enjoyable.
