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.

Nice The course was excellent, I was amazed with the great design, it was as good as I have read about, glad I played it once in my life. May 20, 2015
How can you not enjoy this place? Devious Dye! Delight and angst with every shot. Great course to enjoy the beauty of this great game. I love playing this course! Hit good shots that find bunkers. Hit bad shots that cost you balls and penalty strokes. Hit great shots and earn your par, and maybe even a birdie or two to brag about and remember. Speaking of remembering, I've now parred Alcatraz 100% of the times I've played it. Can't wait til next time! May 16, 2015
It's PGA West - Stadium! Enough said. Well it was time to test Stadium. I'm a 3.3 handicap and I needed a little test. My buddy, who has played Stadium before, bet me $100 I couldn't break 100 - from the black Tournament markers. What? Are you kidding! Break 100? The greens are perfect. The fairways are perfect. The 5,000 bunkers are perfect. The course is perfect. The staff is perfect. The facilities are perfect. The practice areas are perfect. Pete Dye: A 255 par 3? a 471 par 4? A 617 par 5? - NOT downhill and the lush beautiful fairways don't really give you much roll like the concrete on the home course. Even if you hit the narrow, curved fairway in the right spot as you stretch for a 450 yard hole, your ball can still meander off into a bunker, or a collection area. Flat lies are rare even in the fairway leaving you with some sort of improvised shot. The greens are ALL guarded like Fort Knox by water, DEEP bunkers, and collection areas which encircle EVERY hole and stand ready to defend all challengers. The greens are all sectioned off into tiny "no birdie" zones by steep ridges and tiers. Putting through a triple or quadruple breaker was not uncommon making your shot placement critical. I personally guarantee several 3-putts. Stadium was the toughest course I have every played second to Torrey Pines south from the "invite only/permission needed" blacks. Make an excuse about your glutes not activating today and move up from the Blues to the Whites so you can smile once during the round. And DO NOT play the blacks unless you hold a current PGA card. The bet? 97! Made just TWO pars and ZERO birdies. Pay up. $100 May 16, 2015
Brian's choice Paid too much to play a course that is difficult enough but made more so due to lack of yardage book or GPS on carts. Like playing an a la carte course where everything is extra! Paid a lot less for more playable courses in P. Desert. May 9, 2015
Not great Not worth the money course Shape not good just ok slow play April 25, 2015
Stadium course - not the best We got a discounted rate of $49 so the course's shortcomings aren't so bad. The course is not in very good shape - they are riding a lot on their name. The pace was very good & the people were very friendly. Would only play there again at the discounted rate. Would never pay the full price. April 21, 2015
Hot hot round in the desert I will preface this by saying the weather in April was extremely hot (96) not the norm and if it were in the 80's it would of been better. The drought and hot winter effected the course condition, I don't think they could of done anything. Course played hard and fast, rock hard greens made appraoch shots very difficult, except with a wedge. The greens were true and ran fast. Very difficult course, go in with the expectation, your probably not going to score, but you can say you played a truly tough track, where the pros have played. April 19, 2015
Pete Dye - need I say more? The main difficulty is hitting and staying on the greens. Anything a foot off could be in water, sand, or at the bottom of a 20-foot dropoff. April 17, 2015
