Overall Rating: C-
Highs: Scenery & hellacious bunkers
Lows: Practice facility & pace of play
According to the PGA West website, the Stadium Course has been “rated one of the ‘Top 100 Courses in the World’ by GOLF Magazine and 4th toughest course in America in Golf Digest’s ‘Top 50 Toughest Courses in America’ (2007). There may be no greater challenge or excitement in the game of golf.”
Really?!? For the average golfer playing out here this course is overhyped and overrated. If you can stay out of the deep bunkers and avoid the water, the course is no different than your average course. Obviously, that’s easier said than done, but the greens are pretty flat and the accurate hitter should play well out here….
