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.

We ended up getting a tee-off deal which brought the cost down to a level that was considered good value. The course was in great shape and the greens were quick and had lots of undulation which made them tricky at times.

Pros:

-Range balls are provided - Make sure you grab them from the bag attendants as there are no signs to tell you where to get them

-Good pace of play - Took only 4 hours with a four some that started at 10:30

Con:

- Range hits off mats which I did not like for a course that costs what it did

- Biggest downside to this course is the constant airplane traffic. It felt like there was never a break from either landing or taking off

I liked the course and the course conditions but I do not think i would play again just because of the constant airplane traffic as it took away from the round.

Overall golf course was in good shape with greens that rolled true and fast. The pace of play was the worst we have had in quite some time. Be prepared for a five hour round when you play this course. We waited on every hole on the back 9. Also, was disappointed to find out the range was mats only. One would expect to warm up on real grass and a 4 hour round when playing $150 plus for a green fee. There are other courses one can play in this price point which will offer both....ie Wildfire.

Pace of play was slow and marshall's didn't do much to help.

Course was nice, fair to play. Greens were in great shape. Nice views.

Bit on pricey side. It is Scottsdale, but it is still a round of golf.

Its a golfers dream to play TPC Scottsdale, however it was the Champions course. The rough was dried up and dead. Greens were in great shape. I got a good deal but I wouldn't pay a crazy amount to play the course.

Always enjoy playing this golf course. It’s fun and fair to play, pace of play was great. Highly recommend, if you are around a 10 handicap I would recommend playing blue tees. I thought tees from white tees were a little short especially on par 3,s.

The course was in great shape and the greens rolled well. The pace of play was exceptionally fast. The Marshall visited my group 4+ times complaining about slow play. According to our pace of play timer built into the GPS, my group was never more than 5 minutes behind pace. Thats nothing more than a quick visit to the restroom or the beverage cart. The Marshalls annoying presence was distracting and didn't help to produce a great experience.

They overbooked the course to the point we had three groups bunched up on almost every hole. We had to quit the last two holes because it was too dark to play. The course is directly in the final approach to the airport with planes and helicopters landing every 30 seconds. Very distracting. Never saw a marshall the entire round. It was a complete waste of money and no fun at all.
