We did not know it was the 5th hardest in the nation. Wow was it. I am a 19 handicap and was happy I shot under 100. This course has over 100 sand traps and several lakes.

This was our first time playing the Stadium course. It had just re-opened after over-seeding. Greens were really bumpy & very slow but the green fee was a steal. Course is intimidating but very playable ... more so than we expected. Tough test but enjoyable.

Hard but not crazy hard if you know where to land the ball. Some shots are just unfair (thanks Pete Dye) with some green-side bunkers more than 20 feel below the green surface. If you can play with someone familiar with the course, and you...More

PGA West was the first of the stadium courses that Pete Dye brought into mainstream golf. I had not played it in over a quarter century, but this weekend I teed it up again there, and it was a fun experience. The course can play...More

Agree with above. There is ample valet parking on site. Nothing off site is available. There is no parking on the road leading into each course and housing community within the PGA West complex
