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.
