TPC Scottsdale - Stadium Course
This is a tough track, even from the whites. The required forecaddy is a godsend, saving shots and balls. You must drive it well to score but even then, that's no guarantee of a good number. Lots of traps and terrain changes make this one of the hardest courses in the valley. Very pricey but highly recommended for better players. Higher handicaps will struggle.

Check it off the wish list.
Golf now is the best. I was visiting Arizona for the first time. I really wanted to play TPC Scottsdale but the 300 dollar price tag was not in my golf budget. I have played at Torrey, Pinehurst #2, and many other fine courses. Never payed more than 200. I just can not justify paying 4.00 every time I hit the ball. You do the math. I checked golf now and got a rate of 99 for a noon tee time. WOW. It was 80 degrees with a light breeze. Perfect. The course is everything you think it is. The rough is a penalty, the greens are true and fast, the sand is soft , and the fairways are fantastic. I did not get booed at the 16th. Birdie on that hole, a little less pressure with no beer containers being thrown your way. 16th is the easiest hole on the course. Any ball not sticking on the green is a tough fight back onto the putting surface. Lots of rough and tough lies surrounding the greens. Overall great course, thanks to golf now I got to check one more course off my wish list.

It was an honor to play on a PGA, TPC course. The only way I could have played the course was thru Golf Now @ a discounted rate. Just knowing I was putting on the same greens as the professionals just a month or so ago was an awesome adventure.

Played the Stadium course and enjoyed it very much. Many of the gallery structures erected for the WM Phoenix Open were still in place, even the structure around the famous 16th hole. It was totally cool to play the course. Course conditions were excellent. Bunkers filled with sugar white sand. Whole course was beautifully manicured.
Several holes were cart path only, so it involved some walking. The sand bottles on my cart were empty.
The starter, Ken, got us started earlier than our booked tee time which was great because we were able to get all 18 holes played before it got too dark.
This is a course that's worthy of being a golf cathedral.

Golf Now Receipt Problem
I played Stadium it was great problem is when you buy a prepaid tee time with GolfNow they don''t put the amount on the receipt - just paid in full. When I do my expenses it is a problem. Eventually you can get a receipt but it takes MUCH time.

A lot of activity on the course due to the upcoming waste management tournament. I couldn't appreciate the change in course design because it was my first time playing. Greens had a nice speed. Staff was courteous, polite and informative.

Ton of Fun!
When we golfed the weather was absolutely miserable. This did lead to the course being basically empty. It was a great experience to have the course to ourselves. When we played they were almost done construction of all the stadium. Teeing off on the 16th hole with the stadium fully constructed was a little like entering the coliseum. The front nine is nothing spectacular but the back nine is definitely one to remember. It was very cool to be able to tee it up from the same places from the pro's and watch it a few weeks later. We were able to snag a great rate off of golf now otherwise we wouldn't have played. If you can get a deal I'd recommend everyone play this course. Only complain were the greens were rock hard so you couldn't hold very many approach shots on them.

Course was in great shape. Cart path only. We were a three singles paired up and we each had our own cart.
