PGA WESTÂ® - TPC Stadium Course
This was my first time playing PGA West and it will not be my last. The facilities were fantastic and the staff was very friendly which made the day even better. Even though I played at the end of the season the course was still in great shape. The course is a nice balance with very challenging holes to holes that give you the opportunity to score. With a lot of water holes and a desert backdrop the views are fantastic. I am looking forward to coming back in the fall.

Great layout with character
I played this course when it first opened and have gone back for the first time. It still remains one of the classics and stands the tedt of tome. Accurate Drives and iron shots are required which each individual hole aoranle experience. Reccomrnded forore accomplished players. Course conditions were above average and pace of play great. A must play!

Too tough for most golfers
Course is designed for under 10 handicap and course had too many blind shots where you can not see the fairway or hazards.
So unless you are very accurate with your shots, you will get very frustrated.

A Game required
This probably the toughest course in La Quinta at PGA west you most certainly need your A game around here. There are not that many flat lies even on the fairway and with 200 plus bunkers putting the ball in the right places is of a premium.
Having said all that it is fabulous and a must play if you are visiting Palm Springs Area.
Course condition is excellent ever in September with friendly and helpful staff from shop to golf course

Put this course on the bucket list!!!!
Drove up from San Diego to play this course and it was well worth the 2 1/2 hour drive and 112 degree heat. The greens had been previously punched but still rolled true. T boxes, fairways and sand traps were all well maintained. Stay away from the rough!!! It will sink your ball about 4 to 6 inches. Overall, very scenic course with excellent customer service in the clubhouse and on the course. Unfortunately, the only downfall of this round was the 19th hole: horrible waitress service and the food was less than average and overpriced. We ordered 2 pizzas at the same time and one came out 25 minutes after ordering, and the next 10 minutes later. Only got visited by the waitress 4 times- not PGA quality service at all!!!

Conditions worse than expected
The front nine was by far in worse shape than the back. Greens rolled pure however they were sandy and recently aerated so aesthetically not the most appealing.

Pete Dye at his Best!!!
Everyone should play this course once to experience something different in golf course design. It would not be my everyday course, too much luck involved. People say that the course has too many gimmicks but it is what it is, one of a kind. One of the best description of the course is that it looked like it was designed by Dr. Suess. Play the Stadium, have fun and don't get upset with how the design effects your play.
