TPC of Scottsdale is a 36-hole golf complex located in Scottsdale, Arizona. Stadium Course has a capacity of 30,000,[1] making it one of the main golf stadiums.

The resort, which opened in 1986, is part of the Tournament Players Club network of golf courses operated by the PGA Tour. The Stadium Course has been home to the tour's annual Phoenix Open since 1987.

Stadium Course[edit]

Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish were commissioned by the PGA Tour to build a course that would play host every year to the Phoenix Open starting in 1987. The Stadium Course was built as a result.

The par 3 16th hole on the Stadium Course is the only fully enclosed hole on the PGA Tour. The grandstands that surround the 16th are home to one of the most enthusiastic crowds on the PGA Tour. A shot that lands on the green will result in cheers from the crowd, while a shot that misses the green will result in boos. Tiger Woods scored an ace (hole in one) on this hole during the 1997 Phoenix Open, sending the crowd in attendance into a frenzy.[2][3]
