TPC Scottsdale - Stadium Course
A great course to play
Except for the pace of play the round was most enjoyable. The marshall was on top of the problem and kept us informed as to the situation. The entire staff was courteous and helpful and we could not have asked for more. It was a great course to play and we hope to play it again.

Poor value. Play both courses at Wildfire for the same money. Breakfast was very good for the price. Practice facility very nice. Very slow pace of play, on course assistant just made excuses for the slow group.

Skeleton crew means no course assistant (terrible pace)
Course was in pretty good shape, but let's cut to the chase - this is not one of the best courses in Scottsdale. It has the cache of hosting the rowdiest event on the PGA Tour and as such, is able to command fees WAY in excess of the fun to be had (truth be told, the sibling Champions Course is a far more fun day out, with fewer vanilla holes).
I like (liked) to check the place out once every year or so and was especially interested to see some of the recent changes. Course is pretty much as it was - the most clear change (for me) was the big move of the 4th green.
Still the same old fairly flat track, with a few nice holes on the back 9.
Unfortunately, this time out was a big let down as far as pace of play went. We had some hackers playing the tips in front of us, which in of itself doesn't always mean a bad day out. However, this 4some would all drive out to 1 drive - 200 yards out - then all drive out to the next - 220 yards out - then drive back to player 3's ball - at 180 out - before they all migrated to the last players ball. Rinse and repeat. No player assistant and when I called the pro-shop, got a terse "the assistant pro is out there, talk to him". Woeful attitude - I assume because we "only" paid $80 a head to play this banal track.
At $80 a pop, this course would be worth a 1-time run. At $80 a pop and this pace of play and attitude from the staff, skip it. For less $, you'll get a better course and significantly better service at Grayhawk, Wildfire, Troon North, Kierland (and air-conditioned carts!).

Great track. Not a bucket lister but fine desert golf in great shape!

This is a top notch golf course. Challenging but doesn't over do it. Loved playing here. The staff both at the golf course and restaurant were awesome. Got paired up with another twosome and had a great round

Best Conditions I Have Played
I have been to Scotland and a bit around the country and none rival the shape the course was in. Not saying its as good of a course as the top end ones in teh USA and world, but the conditions were mint.
The greens were smooth, green and had a perfect roll (played late May). The sand was a perfect white with the right about of crispness for clean bunker shots, whether in the fairway or green side. The tee boxes and fairways were meticulous.
I was a huge fan. I liked the mix of easy and hard. We played the 1 up tees and I thought it was fair. I actually played the front better. The back I thought was easier with 2 par 5's and some short holes that i felt were open (outside of 11, which was really tough), but I just didnt score.
Either way, I highly recommend if making a trip.

Course was in great shape
I played with my son who played the back tees. The course was in great shape. The front nine was a little more open than the back nine. On the back nine you had to hit the ball good to have nice angles to the greens. The greens were very fast but rolled very good. Tee boxes and fairways were great. Would recommend this course to be played by anybody.

Great course, great weather
Well maintained facility. Course changes made it more challenging. Greens were fast and true.
