If final approvals are made in early February, the Stadium Course, built in 1987 by Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish, could see improvements extending to irrigation, greens, cart paths, bunkers, and the clubhouse. The project could start in April and be complete in time for the Waste Management Phoenix Open in 2015.
The Stadium Course at TPC Scottsdale (Ariz.), built in 1987 by Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish, could see $15 million in improvements, including irrigation, grass and cart paths, the Golf Channel reported.
If final approvals are made in early February, Weiskopf, 71, will be going back to make significant changes. The project would start in April if all goes as planned, and be done in time for the Waste Management Phoenix Open in 2015, the Golf Channel reported.
Almost all greens will get minor contour changes, while three greens will get new locations; the bunkers and sand will have a different look; and the clubhouse will be tweaked and updated, Weiskopf said.
Though there’s no room to add length to the 18th hole, the green and lake in front of the tee will stay in the same place, but the strategy of the hole will change as Weiskopf moves the rough in from the left to shrink the fairway, the Golf Channel reported.
The 36-hole club is owned by the City of Scottsdale and leased by the PGA Tour.
