TPC Scottsdale

With this year’s PGA Waste Management Phoenix Open taking place in Scottsdale this weekend, the Rivkin Golf Review wanted to take a closer look at one of golf’s most prominent and difficult courses that is the stage for the latest PGA Tour event. TPC Scottsdale is a true work of art as it combines challenging terrain with skillful playability that’s appealing to both professionals as well as recreational golfers. It’s situated in the Sonoran Desert and surrounded by the McDowell Mountains that create a spectacular backdrop for the course. The 36-hole golf complex in Scottsdale, Arizona has two championship courses (the Stadium Course and the Champions Course), both of which are open to the public, and it’s the state’s only PGA Tour facility.

The Stadium course at TPC Scottsdale was designed by Jay Morrish and Tom Weiskopf and in addition to being the stage for the PGA Tour’s annual Phoenix Open, it also offers a challenging round for amateurs. The course’s tour-quality standards are maintained year-round and this golf course is truly one of the sport’s most captivating arenas.

The Champions Course occupies the former site of TPC’s Desert Course and the design was based on the area’s rugged terrain, incorporating the natural ravines and rolling hills for a challenging yet exciting layout. The diverse layout is ideal for all skill levels and the beauty of the last few holes help cap off an unforgettable round.

TPC Scottsdale has been singled out by Golfweek, Conde Nast Traveler and Golf Digest not only as a top course, but a top golf resort for travelers as well. So if you’re ever in the area and looking to play an unforgettable round this is the place. There’s an open guest policy and the course is open all year with rounds of golf that range from $50-$300 depending on the time of year (the Champions Course is the least expensive of the two). Guests can also take advantage of PGA standard services and amenities in the clubhouses, The Grill at TPC Scottsdale, professional golf instruction, and luxury hotel options.
