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.

Great Course!

Course was immaculate condition. Layout good. No real blind spots but GPS helped. Staff and amenities were excellent. Fairways were somewhat narrow requiring fair amount of accuracy. "Dessert" areas were relatively easy to hit out of. Greens were quite fast. Fly overs from nearby airport a little unsettling but certainly added to the unique atmosphere. Would definitely play again.

When expectations of a course comes to fruition

When you think TPC, you think waste management phoenix open. Although this is the championship course, it feels and plays like the stadium course but at half the price. I would definitely come play this course again. It is narrow so being able to hit the fairway is crucial or self you be dropping every single time. So make sure you hit them straight.

Airplanes Cars and Wood Chippers

If you do not mind the non-stop sound of landing and departing aircraft, cars on the freeway, and a non-stop wood chipper, then this course is for you. Everything else was fantastic about the experience, just the noise level was too much.

Pleasant day

Everything about the round was good. No surprises. Friendly staff, started on time. 4:15 minute round. I especially liked the greens. They took very true, and for me, the speed was just right. I suppose around 10-11. Beautiful day.

Unfriendly staff.

Course was in great shape. However It was completely frozen all morning, they should have had a frost delay.

Welcome staff unorganized and not friendly.

Champions Course

I thoroughly enjoyed my day at the course. From warming up, only a short walk to the range, to the practice green right in front of the club house. Both were in excellent shape , with plenty of room for several people. The course itself was beautiful, with plenty of different looks, and enough challenges to keep you interested. The shape was excellent, and the views stunning. I would recommend this course to any caliber of golfer.A little pricey, but compared to similar prices of other courses, it was in better shape , and more interesting to play.

Disaster

Last time I played here in August the course was immaculate. Today it looked like a cow pasture and due to the golf tourney NEXT WEEKEND, the parking situation was an absolute nightmare. Had to walk a mile to get back to the course from the parking area. There should have been a disclaimer posted notifying potential customers of this. Probably the worst golf experience I’ve had in the valley.

Always in top condition

The course is always in great shape. No bare spots in the fairways and the greens are fast and smooth. GPS on carts helps with club selection.

All I expected

First time playing this TPC course. Everything I expected. Staff courteous and helpful. Course conditions magnificent. Greens on the quick side but that, too, was expected. Only minor complaint: No marshall and we followed an incredibly slow group. Caught the. On 7 and waited on every single shot thereafter. Didn't allow pace to affect s great day. All in all, a great experience and round of golf.
