Played TPC Stadium on 08/16/2017 at 10:10 am for the last course on my summer week of golf. Played for $79 plus tax from calling into the shop. The employees were welcoming from bag drop to cart girl to even the locker room attendant (yes you should go check out the locker room where the pros hang out during the tour stop here).
The conditions were pristine, even though there were workers laboring away at certain points on course making renovations. Some areas had new sod being laid but majority of the land being improved were where the grandstands are and vendors needing maintenance (which is not anywhere close to where your ball should be). The tee boxes were perfect and beautifully level. The fairways were amazing, perfect texture and provided great amount of roll out without being baked. The rough was 2.5″ to 4″ in some places bearing difficulty if fairway not hit. The bunkers (the sand looks like powdered sugar and yes you’ll want to eat it) were flawless; green side was fluffy and playable while the fairways were perfectly textured for crisp approach shots. The greens was the star of the round, accepted literally any shot with spin or loft elegantly and putts rolled as true if not truer than any green I’ve ever played. I couldn’t get over the condition of this course at this time of year.
The layout is exciting and challenging enough to break a sweat. I would love to type out how interesting playing the last 4 holes are but everyone knows. No laying up allowed for Par 5 15th, Loudest hole in golf Par 3 16th, and reachable Par 4 17th, with the renovated Par 4 18th. Fun ending and don’t sleep on front nine strategies as well.
This price ($79 plus tax), this venue/layout, with THESE conditions has to be the best value in town for what I’ve seen so far. I will probably never allow myself to shell out $250+ in prime season…this time of year is a DEAL.
