Detailed description of TPC Scottsdale, Stadium Golf Course

TPC Scottsdale, is a Resort, 36 hole golf facility located in Scottsdale, Arizona, about a 30 minutes from Phoenix. The facility has two 18-hole championship courses, The Stadium Course and The Champions Course. Both courses are open for public play.

The Stadium Course is home to the Waste Management Phoenix Open (formerly The FBR Open), the largest spectator golf event in the world.

The course, which opened in 1986, was designed by Jay Morrish and Tom Weiskopf. The course was designed with tournament play in mind. Home to one of the most famous holes in golf, the course's par-3, 16th hole transforms into "The Coliseum" during the Waste Management Phoenix Open providing fans with one of the most exciting and noisy settings in professional sports.

Par for the course is 71. From the back tees, the course plays to 7,216 yards. From the forward tees, the course measures 5,455 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 3, a par-5 that plays to 554 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 4, a par-3 that plays to 150 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 11, a 469 yard par-4 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole is # 4, a 150 yard par-3.

Day 19 - 100 days, 100 courses (Monday, April 1, 2019)

After 19 straight days of golf, on 19 different courses, I think that I have become a little discerning.

TPC Scottsdale was one of the good ones. It had just the right amount of challenge with some long par 4’s and some holes where you really had to think.

One of the most important decisions that a player makes when approaching a golf course is what tees to play. I usually play the same tees as my playing partner. At TPC Scottsdale, my playing partner, Jim, decided to play the Players tees (6600 yards) and I decided to play the Resort tees (6300). I made the right call.

I later learned that there are guidelines that state what length course you should play based on how long your drive is. With my Rogue driver and a 240-yard drive I should be playing less than 6,400 yards (I think.) Turns out Jim ended up joining me after 13 frustrating holes.

I had a Jeckel and Hyde day with 4 pars and 4 7’s. Didn’t lose a ball until my drive on 18.

Would travel: 60-120 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again

A group of us went in late June (Not smart) but we did and loved it. The weather cooperated for this time of year. The course was showing signs of the hot weather and the greens had been punched about 2 weeks before we arrived, but they rolled really well. Would play again but in a different season.

Would travel: 120-300 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

Played this course with my buddy as a twosome. Had a forecaddy assigned to us. Stands were up so the ambiance was great. Played well and had a good day going. Planned to play 36. My money was in my valuables pocket and was all there when I paid the girl for drinks on the 14th hole. Saw no one else the rest of the round. Noticed when we tipped the forecaddy after 18 that my money was out of order. Tipped him well but after further inspection in the clubhouse discovered that over $400 was missing. My friend checked his bag and his Rolex was gone. Course had us fill out and incident report. forecaddy was long gone. Made a police report and the course did nothing. Basically acted like they really didn't care. Caddy master had us fill out an incident report. Had to be the forecaddy take my money and either the forecaddy or another emoloyee that got my buddy's Rolex. Extremely disappointed how that matter was handled! If anyone plays there don't assume anything if safe. The PGA needs to address this issue.

Bottom line: Average course for the area, Better courses for less nearby

It was a great experience. A little difficult. Greens had beenaerated 10 days ago, but were up to very good already. Play was slow (over 5 hours)-the only drawback.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Ranks with the best in this price level, Bargain priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
