This Pete Dye designed course has been maintained and is a joy to play. The service, the course, the pro shop are all top notch. Just beautiful!

I have played the Stadium Course a few times over the years. This trip was with my son and two others who have never played there. The course is everything you expect and have seen on TV. Each hole is truly memorable with an amazing finish. You will not be disappointed. Course has always been in fantastic shape each time... More

This is a Pete Dye course on steroids The forward tee the reds are extremely playable not as daunting as the other tees Lots of deep bunkers berms desert washes Don't expect to play your handicap but it's worth playing Gorgeous course and views Staff super friendly

The Stadium Course is something else. The fairways are groomed like greens. The greens are fast but fair. The layout is very interesting with a lot of variety. You need to have your "A" game at this course. Misplayed shots may find water, deep bunkers or cliff like drop offs. The fairways are reasonably wide and most of the trouble... More

We were unexpectedly invited as guests to play this course. Glad we accepted the offer. 1 Not having clubs, nor anything with us because we are here on a 4-day flight layover (even had to buy shorts because jeans are not allowed, which is a policy I agree). 2 Not played a round of golf in 5 years, I spent...

Bring your A game and your thinking cap ( and buy a shot saver book) Every shot requires you to think... about where you do and don't want to be as well as the fact there are very few flat lies... Have fun!

Course was in great shape - prepped for tomorrow's tourney. Played with some zero handicappers prepping for the tourney so that was fun. Not huge fans of houses on the fairways, which there were on all but if you're into a tough urban course, this is it.

The TPC Stadium Course at PGA West is the home if the Career Builder Challenge every January fir the PGA Tour. The course is challenging and fun, but a typical Pete Dye design if you stray off the fairways, you will pay a price. The women's tee are forward and very fair. A great course and the pro shop at...

Would like to play this course again. We golfed it after it was over seeded so it wasn't in the best of shape. The layout is very good, I wouldn't say it was in the top for most difficult courses that I have played. I am a 15 handicap and played from the red only because we were told how... More

I selected Thanksgiving Day to play my landmark 500th golf course and the obvious choice was this course as we are staying in Palm Desert from the UK and like a challenge. The course is rated the most difficult in California, 4th in the States and 9th in the World, although how this is decided I have no idea. The... More
