The Desert Course at TPC Scottsdale was redesigned in 2007 and renamed Champions Course. The Phoenix Open has played on the Stadium Course since 1987, which was designed for this PGA tour event. Every year the Stadium Course at TPC Scottsdale is ranked as one of the best courses in the State of Arizona and in the country. Both are set in the beautiful environment of the Sonoran desert, with the McDowell Mountains in the background. Typical of a desert course, there are many cacti and mesquite trees.
One of the most interesting holes on the Stadium Course is number 15. It is 558 yards from the championship tees. Water all along the left and bunkers all along the right lead you to an island green. You can also see one of the largest in Arizona at the 15th hole. Beautiful! Another memorable hole is number 16. It's that infamous par three. Were you there the day that Tiger Woods hit his hole-in-one on that hole? I was!
Whether you are visiting in person or watching on TV you will want to get full enjoyment not only of the players and their expertise but also of this awe-inspiring course. You can see a scorecard and a layout of each of the holes, compliments of The Tournament Players Clubs.
