Fun and relaxing course. I got to play this course three times during the week, so I got to know the course well.

The Nicklaus Tournament Course shares the same clubhouse as the TPC Stadium Course but that's where the similarities end. While Nicklaus also enjoys using lots of sand on each hole there's reasonably generous fairways, less water and flatter putting surfaces than you'll find at the neighboring course. One can score but be careful of the large pond that guards both... More

Why does he not like people to see where they are shooting? He always has a bunch of junk hiding the second shot or tee shot.

Really enjoyed this one. Played it twice in one day despite the heat. Signature hole with par 5. long, to island green, can play time and time again.

Had a fun day and really enjoyed the course. Best of the PGA courses in PGA WEST. You will find the cost to be high, but well worth it

Another fun track on the PGA West property. You can count on Jack to design a nice layout, unlike that Dye character :-), I always enjoyed playing here and this trip was no different. Maybe even better since I won some $$$!

One of the hardest of the 6 courses here. Jack went crazy with mounding and raised fairways. if you miss the fairways you will be in a sunken area with thick rough...very difficult. Great condition and overall a great facility. In my opinion, along with the Palmer Private course, as tough or tougher than the Stadium course but does not... More

Very nice course with lots of trouble if you don't pay attention. More traditional style then a desert course. Nice variety of holes. Great staff.
