Named one of the “Top 10 Public Golf Courses in Arizona” by Golf Digest, the magnificent par-71, 7,216- yard Stadium Course was designed by Jay Morrish and Tom Weiskopf expressly to serve as the stage for the PGA TOUR's legendary Waste Management Phoenix Open – the largest spectator golf event in the world. During the 51 weeks of the year when fans are not witnessing history-making moments by the world's best golfers in “The Greatest Show on Grass,” they can test their own skills on the same pristine fairways, maintained to PGA TOUR-quality standards year-round. Lauded for its outstanding environmental stewardship, the Stadium Course was the first golf course in Arizona to be designated an Audubon International Cooperative Sanctuary System.
Rivaling the Stadium course in both beauty and playability, the brilliantly crafted Randy Heckenkemper designed Champions Course offers the complete desert golf experience. Featuring 7,115 yards of undulating Bermuda fairways, pristine greens and challenging bunkers, the par-71course 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 make this golf gem a "must play” for all golfers. The Champions Course includes a beautiful new modern clubhouse featuring expanded banquet and catering capabilities and a large outdoor patio.
