TPC Scottsdale - Stadium Course
hmm what to say
I did not think it was worth what I paid for the round. I was paired up with 3 hacks that had absolutely no golfing etiquette, what so ever! they played out of turn and confused and distracted my entire game. Not only that they held up the play of others with no concern at all on chatting time or obtaining drinks...
But all in all, I would still say that the course itself and it's conditions were not worth the cost! Including the cost of what was approximately 12 balls in a bag that I got to practice with for somewhere around 5 to 7 additional dollars! The starter guys was very nice but I was unimpressed with the gal at the desk - who seemed quite snobbish at best, in my opinion

Watch Out For Snakes
We were driving our cart down the cart path and right in front of us was a 4 foot rattler basking in the sun. Someone told me the snakes are out early this year, so beware!!

Less than expected
Based on what I expected for a PGA tour stop course, this came up way short. I play regularly in the Phoenix area (weekly) and have found other courses to be a much better value. There is no reason to play this course other then you can say you played where the pros have played.

A place to play when in Scottsdale
I just played this course recently after the Phoenix open and was impressed with the course. We were 1st out and the course was in pristine condition. Greens were smooth and pretty quick and the course was manicured to my expectations of a course that hosts a tour event. This course is playable from any tee you choose. There is room off the tee but if you stray too far you will find desert area. It was a fun course to play but be careful as during the winter the price may be steep. But if the price is right for you it's a place to may when in the Phoenix area.

I played this course 2 years ago and the conditions were good. This time time the waiting to play at every hold was just too much. The greens had a lot of sand in it !! Could not judge the speech of the ball as each green had a little more of less sand. We were not told about the greens before hand, which would have made us think twice about playing. We travelled from BC for a weekend if golf - one day was ruined because of the poor conditions of the course.

Not just about the golf
Played mid-day on Presidents day.Nothing but positives about the course.Greens condition and speed good.Rough thick and difficult.Fairways well maintained.Bunkers well positioned and uniform sand quality.Joined up with a threesome [ hey Lee any Pics.] and teed off on the back nine to start.This would leave you to believe that some maitemence was happening on the front side.We played in just over 4 hours despite having several three and twosomes constantly driving up and us and forcing us to let them play through,this defintely affected the rhythm of our round.Then the beverage cart kept driving up on us while we playing shots and sqeezing her way around our carts.Pretty sure she nicked one trying to get past.There was also some worker on a 4x4 gator zooming all over the course and passing us as we were playing [holes 15,16,3,6. 9] to site a few.On holes 6 and 8 staff mowers were completely unaware of our existence as they continued to mow the rough right around and past us as we played.Actaully cutting off one of the carts in our group.After so many distractions it was diificult to concentrate and enjoy what I had looked forward to since last Nov. would be a memmoarable experience .I personally came a long way to play to get the T.P.C. experience.What I got was frustration at these completely controllable issues and a verbal apology that really didn't cut it.This was not a busy day for the course , we saw the marshall twice and were waived through at the turn like some kind of Nascar event.Not noramally a complainer , but WOW ! they need to go some here at T.P.C. Scottsdale !!

Not worth money
A TPC course should be a quality course. The conditions os the course was on par with the low end courses. Certainly not worth $100
