Golf Course Information
When you think of PGA WEST®, it is the Stadium Course that first comes to mind. Rated by Golf Digest as one of "America's 100 Greatest Public Courses" (2023-2024) and 4th toughest course in America's "Top 50 Toughest Courses in America" (2007), there may be no greater challenge or excitement in the game of golf. At 7,300 yards, the Stadium Course has the highest stroke (76.1) and slope (150) ratings of all the courses at PGA WEST. With five sets of tees, the Stadium lures every golfer.
Designed by Pete Dye, the Stadium Course delivers multiple adrenaline rushes throughout the round. Stadium is the Host course for the PGA TOUR "Q-School" Finals every other year. Golfer's must navigate the island green of hole #17, known as Alcatraz, as well as the menacing water-lined 18th as they end their golfing journey. Imagine needing to make par-par on two of the toughest finishing holes in golf to win a PGA TOUR tournament or to earn the coveted PGA TOUR card!
Named "Stadium" thanks to Dye's ingenious plan to sculpt spectator seating into the natural terrain, many historic moments in golf have occurred here, including Lee Trevino's unforgettable hole-in-one on Alcatraz. This won him a carry-over Skin worth $175,000 in the 1987 made-for-TV "Skins Game," hosted at PGA WEST from 1986-1991. With five sets of tees, the Stadium lures all skill levels.
The Stadium Course plays host to The American Express™, a highly anticipated, charitable PGA Tour event held annually in January.
