Desert Golf Course

The 1970s through the 1990s was a period in which golf courses proliferated around the world owing to economic conditions that encouraged big budgets. The result is that there are a whole lot of really lovely and fairly new places to play golf; one only hopes that most of them survive leaner times. The PGA WEST complex is one of these ambitious projects, featuring half a dozen courses, a number of them quite visually stunning. The top of the heap is the Stadium Course that Pete Dye designed in the mid-1980s. Dye's layouts in this period tend to be fairly punishing, and this one is no exception, though there is some fun to be had in coming prepared with a bunch of spent balls and licking your wounds afterward. And so it is that thousands of players flock to the Stadium every year for self-inflicted chastisement and to enjoy the scenery.

PGA West has 3 courses open to the public, TPC Stadium, Nicklaus Tournament and Greg Norman outside of the resort. TPC Stadium is Pete Dye at its best a course that gives you no rest and every shot a real test of golf. If you survived till the 16th, the 17th a short par 3 on a tiny island green can ruin your score. Nicklaus Tournament is a bit more relaxing but a just as beautiful residential golf course. Each 9 holes culminates at the last hole with long green shots on difficult greens well protected by water and bunkers. Have a drink on the patio of Erny's Bar & Restaurant and watch people struggle over the 9th and 18th hole. Forget about Greg Norman which doesn't meet the same standard.
