Beyond the recreational amenities, you will also want to take the social plunge and attend our mixers and holiday parties, creating traditions for the whole family on Mother’s and Father’s Day, Easter, Thanksgiving, and many more important dates. Those with upcoming nuptials are invited to book their ceremony at one of the three elegant venues featured at the club, from the course itself to private dining rooms. From families, to couples, to individuals of all ages, Red Mountain Ranch Country Club is the quintessential experience of the country club lifestyle.

Saturday, 17 June 2023 TPC/Champion Course (+) 8:30 AM $79.00. Tap here to get the course website.

TPC Scottsdale was the sixth club in the TPC Network, born from the dream of then PGA TOUR Commissioner Deane Beman. His vision was to create a network of clubs that would embody the TOUR’s rigorous quality standards, provide unparalleled venues for TOUR events, and further advance the PGA TOUR’s charitable contributions. In early 1986, the Phoenix Thunderbirds (host organization for the Phoenix Open) started looking for a new tournament site. Their intention was to grow the event, which was limited in size and number of spectators by its previous location, the Phoenix Country Club. Many locations in Phoenix were considered, but due to environmental issues, the Thunderbirds were running out of options. TOUR Commissioner Beman began assisting the Thunderbirds in identifying a new location when then Scottsdale Mayor, Herb Drinkwater, called with the perfect solution – he could secure land within the city of Scottsdale that would offer the ideal setting for a stadium-style course. So in cooperation with the Bureau of Reclamation, the City of Scottsdale, and the Phoenix Thunderbirds, the PGA TOUR moved the event to its new location ¬and named it Tournament Players Club of Scottsdale. TPC Scottsdale and The Stadium Course began construction in January 1986. The design team of renowned architects Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish was directed by Commissioner Beman to create a similar Stadium design to that at TPC Sawgrass – allowing all spectators a perfect view of the tournament.
