Saturday, July 7th, 2018 / TPC Stadium course

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 a 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 were directed by Commissioner Beman to create a similar Stadium design like that at TPC Sawgrass – allowing all spectators a perfect view of the tournament.

Some tough dudes out there matching up with the Sonoran desert today. Took this snap of the weather dial about the time players were just getting in for a cold beer and a cool towel. This was in Gilbert but I bet TPC matched it pretty closely. KUDOS to those that played today. First flight winner was Barry Jennejahn at 68 net, 2nd to Chris Herrbach at 69 net, and John Adair at 76 net. Atta Boy to Tom Willis and Mike Roether and Tom Orr all tied at 77 net. Flight two winners were Doug Rankin in 1st at 71 net, Bill “The Carver” Heller at 2nd place with a 73 net. Third went to Fred Baldwin at 76 net who was tied by Jeff Currie who was stuck with another Atta Boy by the scorecard playoff. Complete results click here.
