The Nicklaus Tournament Course shares the same clubhouse as the TPC Stadium Course but that's where the similarities end.

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 $$$!
