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!

Really enjoyed the course. Quickly got out. Beverage gal very friendly. Met a nice marshal making sure we were having fun. Challenging, great layout, greens rolled slower than I expected. Would definitely come back.

Buyer Beware

We were excited to play the Championship Course. We drove up from Southern Arizona. We usually play together once a week at different courses. We decided to make the trip up and unfortunately were disappointed. We knew about the over seeding and expected the fairways to be overgrown but the green were in poor shape. The staff were on the course in landing areas, so we had to wait for them to move. The staff came up to us and stated we were behind the pace of play we took exactly 4:18 min for a foursome cart path only. No one hit into us and were a hole ahead during the round. The threesome in front of us were a hole ahead of us and the ranger came up to us and stated go faster to catch up to the threesome. I enjoy playing fast but others in my group are older and with cart path only it made it hard on the older gentleman. Hey, I’m the first to say let’s increase pace of play but if no one is hitting into and you are playing around 14 min a hole for a foursome I don’t get the problem. Three encounters made us not want to play here any more. The gentleman at the bar said he played almost five hours which is unacceptable and never saw the ranger. Do to course shape and ranger won’t be back.

TPC is a joke!

Staff less then cordial; management likewise. I'll never even attempt to play a TPC course again. Business must be too good for the way their operations are run

Value at TPC Champions

I’m going to grind A small ax here. If you’re paying $125 for 18 and the greens and tee boxes aren’t mowed, they just over seeded so it’s cart path only, no drinking water on course and they charge $4 per bottle at the Club house, I’m not very pleased. Then they send off our carted 4 some behind 4 walkers? Long day and likely I won’t be back.

CPO - ugghh.

So they recently over-seeded and it really had an effect on the course (which is to be expected).

1st - CPO - cart path only
2nd - the seeding left the fairway grass long, and in most cases soggy from the watering. Which again, is to be expected.
3rd - greens were super slow and a bit wonky. Also everyone in the group mentioned the pin placements. I’ve seen tournaments set up easier, many Holes being a flag stick length on the green.

I didn’t care as I play quite a bit but the guys in my group found the pin spots tough.

I think I would play the tips next time around as some of the holes were way too short where I found myself hitting an iron or hybrid off the tee.

Staff was very friendly, pace of play was great and I would recommend playing this once they lose the CPO designation.

All in all a fun day. Thanks

Fantastic course, conditions always superb

Second time playing this course and has quickly become a must play while in the Scottsdale area. The conditions are the best amongst any other course in the area that I've played and the price is about half the cost for the Champions course. Layout is enjoyable and the lush greens and fairways are stunning with the mountains in the distance. My only complaint would be pace of play. Our group finished in 4 and a half hours which is not too bad, but the group in front of us had two walkers who were duffers and we were waiting behind them frequently. Not much you can do about that but overall the experience was still a great time and will certainly be back next time I'm in Scottsdale.

Must play

First time playing at TPC Scottsdale. The champions course was in great shape. We started on ten which was fine. We were lucky enough to be paired with a member so that helped with course knowledge. For the price I would definitely play there again

TPC Champions Course

9-4-2020. Booked a round for 50.00 via Golfnow. Was inexpensive for this course during Covid-19, even though it is summer and a lot of the Golf courses charge much higher rates than in typical summers past. Greens were true, Fairways plush, and traps were soft sand. Pretty course. And as long as you don’t mind the constant hum of Planes and Jets landing and taking off from the Scottsdale Airpark, it is a great course. Sometimes it is too $$$$. That is why I haven’t been here in a couple of years. Welcoming Staff, free range balls, great on course cart service.
