Home to the PGA TOUR’s fan-favorite Waste Management Phoenix Open, The Stadium Course at TPC Scottsdale has hosted some of contemporary golf’s greatest moments since opening in 1986. The course was designed by Jay Morrish and Tom Weiskopf specifically to serve as the stage for the tournament — what’s now become the largest spectator golf event in the world.

The course is most famous for its par-3, 16th hole that transforms into “The Coliseum” during the Waste Management Phoenix Open and provides fans with one of the most exciting settings in professional sports. 

During the 51 weeks of the year when fans are not watching the sport’s top names make history, they can test their own skills on the same pristine fairways — maintained to PGA TOUR-quality standards year-round — as their favorite professionals. Are you one of those fans ready to take on the renovated Stadium Course in the 2015 APWA Congress Tournament?
