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.

I had fun on this course. Good condition for this time of year. The course is challenging enough but not overly challenging. The greens were in great condition and rolled true. Enough sand traps and desert scape to keep you mindful of where to land the ball. Overall a great experience for a first time Arizona golfer.

Excellent Golf Course

Hadn't played TPC in a few years, so it was time. The golf experience this time was the best I've had there. Staff was friendly and helpful. Course was in great condition. Morning weather was perfect. I won't wait a few more years before returning.

Gem of a course.

Never thought about playing this course, being the little brother of the TPC tournament course. Then I heard from another golfer it was a great course. I had to see it for myself. The course was in excellent shape, the greens fast and tricky. If you can stay in the fairway, you'll score much better. Nice pro shop and did not get a chance to check out the restaurant. Everyone was friendly and pace of play was good. I will definitely be going back.

Great bang for your buck

If you are playing in the summer, get an early tee time. Course was a little long for me. If I ever play it again, I'll hit from the Red tees. Not much fun hitting fairway and long hybrids on the par 4s and coming up short.
Beautiful course and great staff.
Great bang for your buck.

Championship course TPC

First time to play this course- staff was very friendly- $51.00 summer price was a great value when compared to other courses in the area. The course was well maintained- Each cart has an LED screen with GPS- nice tool for distance to pin and map of course. Scented Ice towels was a nice touch while golfing on a hot day- good signage- waters stations well distributed throughout the course.

Great Course friendly staff

The course was in amazing shape if it was December but it was August! Completed a round in just under 4 hours. Great value in the summer time.

Tougher of the TPCs

Played here on a rec from the clubhouse staff at stadium and wasn’t disappointed. It’s definitely tougher than the stadium course. At the stadium you can spray it and still survive; it is much more narrow at the champions. 15 was a 286 short 4 that was a risk reward hole. 18 is a shorter version of 18 at sawgrass with water all down the left and dares up to take it over the water for your second. The greens were recently punched but were still fast. Definitely play here

Excellent experience

I was in Phoenix for a couple days and had time to play one round. With so many choices of golf courses I knew I could count on a TPC club for a quality experience and good conditioning. TPC Scottsdale Champions Course did not disappoint. The pace of play was excellent, until I caught up to a 3-some on #15 which included a walker that had a single behind them but they would not let him through. An on-course ranger could have alleviated this. But besides this minor annoyance, everything else was great.

Low Round!

Course was in excellent shape despite the recent hot weather. Had crew out hand watering any dry spots.
Well laid out course that plays well with some challenging but fair risk reward holes. Sand traps actually have sand that's playable with NO rocks! Staff was friendly and organised, lots of workers on the course but that's probably why it was in great shape. Greens were holding well and only moderately fast. Would absolutely play it again for the price!
