Experience first-hand what sets Tournament Players Club apart from other golf resorts in Scottsdale. Share the passion and the prestige of playing at the home of the “Greenest Show on Turf,” site of the Waste Management Phoenix Open and the place where PGA Tour professionals regularly practice and play.
Set in the Sonoran Desert and surrounded by the majestic McDowell Mountains, the Tournament Players Club of Scottsdale embodies the standards of excellence in golf operations worldwide. The design team of Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish created a masterful blend of challenge and playability in both the Stadium Course and the Desert Course - two uniquely different golfing venues. Designed expressly as the stage for the PGA Tour's Phoenix Open, the largest spectator golf event in the world known for Tiger Woods’ infamous hole-in-one on golf’s most raucous hole, #16.
The Stadium Course has received numerous accolades, among them a ranking in Golf Digest's “Top 10 Public Courses in Arizona.” Golf Week Magazine called them “One of America's Best Courses” while Conde Nast Traveler has included them among the “Top 20 Golf and Resort Destinations in the World.” The Stadium Golf Shop is chosen annually as one of the “Top 100 Golf Shops in America” by Golf Business Magazine.
Rivaling its famous sister course in both beauty and playability, the brilliantly crafted Randy Heckenkemper designed Champions Course offers the consummate desert golf experience. Featuring 7,115 yards of undulating Bermuda fairways, pristine greens and challenging bunkers, the par-71 course meanders over natural ravines and picturesque foothills, with five par-3’s and a diverse variety of par-4’s and par-5’s to thrill golfers of all skill levels. A quartet of dramatic finishing holes makes this golf gem a “must play” at prices commensurate with municipal golf facilities.
Wildfire Golf Club is situated in the rugged Sonoran Desert of Northeast Phoenix, and features two picturesque 18-hole courses designed by two of golf's greatest legends - Arnold Palmer and Nick Faldo.
The Palmer Signature Course at Wildfire Golf Club offers scenic and expansive fairways allowing the ball to remain in play even on an errant shot. The Faldo Championship Course features generous fairways, large bent grass greens and tee boxes. Surrounding both courses are the majestic McDowell Mountains and century-old saguaro cacti, providing a spectacular setting for golfers.
Please see the hotel’s Guest Services for special discounted rates at both the Camelback and Wildfire courses.
The Palm Course features ten water holes and, as its name suggests, showcases many large palm trees. The Pine Course has many mature pine trees and narrow fairways. Both courses were designed by renowned golf course architect Desmond Muirhead and opened in 1972. The very popular Palm and Pine have both recently been renovated with outstanding new greens, sand traps and bridges. Both are 18 Holes, Par 72.
Since opening in December of 2001, We-Ko-Pa Golf Club’s Cholla Course, designed by Scott Miller, has been one of Arizona’s most highly regarded. With such high praise coming from the likes of Sports Illustrated (Top Ten Best New Courses in the World) and 2006-07 ZAGAT Survey (one of the “50 Most Popular Golf Courses in the US”), it’s easy to see why the Cholla Course has gained a following in the golf community.
In December of 2006, We-Ko-Pa unveiled the Saguaro course, a Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw collaboration. The popular design tandem best known for Sand Hills in Nebraska and Friar’s Head on Long Island, incorporated design elements into Saguaro not commonly seen in the desert southwest, giving Saguaro more of a classic course feel. Greens and tee boxes are in close proximity making the course an enjoyable walk and many of the green complexes offer an opening in the front to allow for the run-up shot, an option almost extinct in modern golf. Like the Cholla course, the Saguaro Course has garnered favor from national audiences. GOLF Magazine chose the course as one of the “Top 10 New Courses You Can Play.” Golfweek cited Saguaro as one of the Best New Courses in 2007. They also chose Saguaro as the number one public access course in Arizona and Cholla as number two.
Both of We-Ko-Pa’s courses are threaded through an open expanse overlooking the Verde and Salt River Valleys, Red Mountain, and the legendary Superstition Mountains with no real-estate development to impede the panoramic views.
Whether you play the award-winning Cholla Course or the brand-new Saguaro Course, at We-Ko-Pa you’re in for a desert golf experience unlike any other in Arizona.
Nestled in the ravines of Arizona's McDowell Mountains and illuminated by dramatic sunrises and sunsets, Eagle Mountain beckons those who desire an outstanding golf experience. Opened in 1996, this Scott Miller designed course is a spectacular representation of man's creation in harmony with nature as it winds through natural box canyons, rolling hills, and lush desert valleys. At Eagle Mountain you'll find a challenging yet fair golf experience, with contoured fairways and immaculately maintained emerald greens throughout this par-71, 6800-yard layout.
To truly understand the virtues of Scottsdale golf, a personal visit is a must. Obviously we hope you choose Eagle Mountain Golf Club. In our humble opinion, it’s one of the best Scottsdale has to offer. Perched high about the Valley of the Sun, the golf course pitches and rolls with the dramatic topography of the property. The views from the golf course are spectacular with the entire southeast Valley on display. It’s one of the finest examples of desert golf available for public play. Plan your trip today. We’ll be ready for you!
SunRidge Canyon’s 6,823-yard, par-71, Keith Foster-designed golf course unfolds around the rugged ridges and shady canyons unique to the desert mountains dividing Fountain Hills from Scottsdale, Arizona. The course gradually descends on the way out before doubling back to climb up the slope on the way in. This subtle elevation change lies at the heart of the dramatic golf experience at Sun Ridge Canyon.
Two uniquely different courses offer many options to suit the golfer's level of playing skill. Located on and owned by the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community, the North and South courses blend with their tranquil desert surroundings to provide a serene yet challenging day of play.
The North Course is 18 Holes, Par 70. Broad, angular holes reward thoughtful play through the rise of its many options. Its low-profile, slightly crowned greens and close-cropped approaches encourage running as well as aerial assaults.
The South Course is 18 Holes, Par 71. Its tree-lined fairways and raised greens offer a more straightforward style of play.
Starfire at Scottsdale Country Club, a 27-hole, public golf facility, is one of Scottsdale's most historic and well-respected golf courses. With its simplistic beauty, reasonable green fees and central location, the new and improved Starfire is a classic golf experience.
