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.

Scary but wonderful ! Everybody said you will need plenty of balls! I actually only lost 2 which I thought was not too bad considering. An iconic course with wonderful views and a great challenge. Loved it. February 21, 2015
Beautiful course Very nice course with the mountains as its background. Very beautiful February 19, 2015
Spectacular course Having played some great courses around the world the PGA West Stadium course has come straight in at No 1. Spectacular views, challenging holes, fabulous condition - perfect. February 19, 2015
Painfully slow Early February, 80 degrees, the course was in very good condition-what more could you ask for? How about a round in less than 5+ hours. Nothing ruins a great golf course more than slow play. On the par 3's there were three groups stacked up. On the remainder of the holes there were 2 groups waiting to hit. We did see a ranger - on hole 16- and he explained that the delay was a result of an inter-club tournament. Better course management would be nice. Comforting that the green fee was greater than 50% off the regular rate. With so many golf courses in the Palm Springs area, think twice about playing here. February 3, 2015
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.
