The TPC of Scottsdale Stadium is home of the PGA Tour Phoenix Open. The TPC of Scottsdale Stadium Course is managed by PGA TOUR Golf Course Properties Inc., the Tournament Players Club of Scottsdale is a resort/daily-fee operation in the prestigious network of Tournament Players Clubs. Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish designed the Tournament Players Club of Scottsdale expressly to test the mettle of highly skilled PGA TOUR professionals during the FBR Open -- a phenomenon on the Tour circuit that routinely boasts record-shattering attendance of nearly a half-million spectators each January. The course features championship playing conditions and the trademark spectator mounding that guarantees everyone an excellent, unobstructed view of the tournament action. Closely aligned with the Scottsdale Princess Resort, the Tournament Players Club of Scottsdale offers guests a "Tour Player for the Day" experience, with attentive guest services and a challenging golf course.

Closely aligned with the Scottsdale Princess Resort, the Tournament Players Club of Scottsdale offers guests a "Tour Player for the Day" experience, with attentive guest services and a challenging golf course. The big thrill is to discover firsthand how the FBR Open is usually determined on the final four-hole stretch that includes the island green at the par-5 Number 15 and the drivable par-4 Number 17. In an innovative land-lease agreement, the City of Scottsdale also provided the Desert Course adjacent to the Stadium Course, complete with its own golf shop and patio grill. With green fees commensurate with those of most municipal facilities, the Desert Course is a fairly level cruise through natural terrain and lush desert landscaping. The greens are larger and there are fewer bunkers. As testimony to its effort to preserve and improve upon the desert setting, the Tournament Players Club of Scottsdale was among the first golf courses across the country to become a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary.

This past year, 11 acres of desert transition areas were re-landscaped to further reflect the natural surroundings and to challenge recoveries from wayward shots. Recently remodeled, the elegance of the clubhouse is remindful of an older private club. For 11 years running, the golf shop has been recognized as one of America's 100 Best Golf Shops by Golf Shop Operations. An item or two from the fashionable inventory of PGA TOUR logo apparel and merchandise make an exemplary golf experience even more memorable.

For the past six years, Desert Mountain members have anxiously awaited the arrival of spring – but not necessarily for the warmer weather the season brings. Spring at Desert Mountain means it's time for the club's annual golf festival, the largest of its kind in the United States .Conceived nearly seven years ago by the Desert Mountain staff, the early May event began as a way to offer members the latest in equipment while enhancing the club's revenue streams. It has quickly grown to be the largest such event in the country. A typical festival can net gross sales of $250,000 to $300,000, said Bob Jones, Desert Mountain 's senior vice president for Club Operations. For one day, the club's members mingle with the largest manufacturers in the industry, testing clubs, placing custom orders and perusing the latest in golf apparel and accessories. Every major golf club manufacturer is represented during the festival, with manufacturers' tech vans on site to modify and create custom clubs for the membership. Sprinkled in among the shopping and demonstrations are vendor-sponsored raffle prizes and special guests.

This year, an outdoor putting green was one of the many items given away while long distance driving champion Brian Pavlet entertained the crowd. With more Jack Nicklaus Signature courses than anywhere else in the world, Desert Mountain has been the private club industry leader for some time.Desert Mountain 's inclusion on Golf World Business magazine's list of “Top 100 Golf Shops of All Time” is evidence of just how good the club is at keeping its members happy. Desert Mountain is recognized as the industry leader in private golf. From the challenging Outlaw golf course, situated on a 176-acre site that gently rolls along the border of the Tonto National Forest , to the dramatic Chiricahua, positioned high in the foothills of the Continental Mountains , the 8,000-acre community offers its members a golf experience second to none.
