Rated as on of the "Top 100 Courses in the World" by GOLF MAGAZINE and 4th toughest course in America in Golf Digest's "Top 50 Toughest Courses in America (2007)," there may be no greater challenege or excitement in the game of golf than the Stadium at PGA WEST! The world famous Stadium is one of Pete Dye's finest course creations, delivering multiple adrenaline rushes throughout the round. A "must play" for all golfers, but no the faint of heart. Host to PGA TOUR "Q-School" Finals every other year, PGA TOUR hopefuls must steady their nerves to navigate the island green of hole #17, known as Alcatraz. Imagine yourself as one of them, needing to make par on the menacing water-lined 18th hole to earn the coveted PGA TOUR card!

Named "Stadium" due to Dye's successful efforts of sculpting spectator seating into the natural terrain along fairways and surrounding the greens, many great moments in golf history have occurred here, including Lee Trevino's unforgettable hole-in-one on Alcatraz. This aced him the win of a huge carry-over Skin worth $175,000 in the 1987 made-for-TV "Skin's Game" hosted by PGA WEST from 1986 through 1991. With five sets of tees, the Stadium lures all skill levels and final scores should be measured by laughs and awe-inspiring moments, not by numbers on a scorecard.

One of my favorites My favorite course in the desert and probably in the stop 5-10 of the hundreds I have played. Every hole has its own unique challenges. I look forward to playing each hole, and the round seems to go by very fast. Lots of forced carries from the blue or black tees, so bring your best game and/or lots of golf balls. January 15, 2015
Tough Action Great course but brutally difficult...Not at all forgiving of errant approach shots...Tight lies in fairways... January 13, 2015
bunkers lots of bunkers. Definitely take your gps as there were none on cart as advertised by golfnow. Greens were not good as other courses played in area. December 28, 2014
Play "Alcatraz" and other challenging holes A brief bit of history before my review. The PGA Tour played the Stadium Course at PGA West only once in 1987. The tour never returned after players signed a petition saying they'd never play it again. After playing the course recently, I have to ask why? While a challenging course, I have fared worse on others. Here is what made the course challenging: - Of the 4 par 3s, only one does not have water that comes into play. - If you hit your ball into the thick rough that lines several holes (e.g. 1, 9, and 14 amoung others#, finding your ball may be more difficult that hitting it out. - Several of the holes require hitting target areas. As for the condition of the course, it appears that they aereated it in the past couple of weeks and were bumpy in a few spots. The greens were fast, but firm, so play less break than you think. Tee boxes, sand and fairways were in very good shape. As for the food, I thought the half-way house had very limited options and the prices seemed off the charts #$4 for a Cliff Bar), All of the staff at the course that I met up with were quite friendly and very welcoming.

For the skilled players This course is for "golf nerds". If you are not a consisteny straight ball hitter you will find yourself endlessly floundering here. If you are a true golf nerd you will find what you are looking for here and must add this to your tract record. I see many reviews pointing out the slow pace. I played the course at a fast pace and ended up passing three very out of place groups throughout the layout. I am not sure whether to conclude that the patrons and management alike are laxed at times (no one seemed to be angry and the three groups stopped to let us pass without is asking) or if this is something the management considers to be a serious problem that will be solved. if you come to the stadium you may encounter some very laxed vibes out here and you may end up having to pass some slow groups. Try not to let that ruin the experience of playing the legendary stadium course. I will say once again you need to be able to hit straight here and place your shots. If you are not a true golf nerd you would likely have more fun at some of La Quinta, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage and Palm Springs easier tracks- don't worry, they are all beautiful just mostly far easier.

whooped This course is great for the low handicap, high ball hitters...I found it had a few hidden surprises, but it was a great time... December 18, 2014
Best anniversary ever !! The course had its challenges and made us think about shots and we were of course rewarded for our efforts.. The staff .. I felt valued as a customer . December 13, 2014
Slowest Ever Round Needs better marshaling for pace of play! Group I was with should not play a course such as this with its course rating. 15 mins plus just to get half way up the first fairway. From only got worse! December 12, 2014
