Rated 5 out of 5 by u00000473088 Best golfing experience ever
Booked as a single thru Golfnow day before for 7am. Greeted at bag drop by friendly staff, went to top class practice facility, tee time moved up earlier. Paired up with another single and finished round in 2 hours and 45 minutes. Had to take extra time on 16 to imagine playing it with the grandstands and thousands of people watching. Overall the best golfing experience ever, kudos to the staff at Toro restaurant as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by benfournier Captain Obvious here: Play this course
This was not the first time I played the Stadium course, but the first since they made the changes.
You must play this course. In the 11 courses I played in the Pheonix area, it ranks a very very close second to Quintero (which is out of this world).
This round will hurt your wallet, but it is worth it. World class range, world class layout, world class conditions. I played from the tips, shot an 80 and was still happy with my round. 14th is one of the toughest hole I played ever.
Do not hesitate to play here

Rated 5 out of 5 by u200686840 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by celticstanger 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!).
