The TPC of Scottsdale Stadium Course, officially known as the Tournament Players Club of Scottsdale is a 36-hole golf complex part of a chain of Tournament Players Club golf facilities located in Scottsdale, Arizona. It opened for play in 1986. It is the current home of the annual FBR Open on the PGA Tour. Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish were commissioned by the PGA Tour to build a course that would play host every year to the Phoenix Open starting in 1987. The Stadium Course was built as a result. The par 3 16th hole on the Stadium Course is currently the only fully enclosed hole on the PGA Tour. The grandstands that surround the 16th are home to one of the most enthusiastic crowds on the PGA Tour. A shot that lands on the green will result in cheers from the crowd, while a shot that misses the green will result in boos. Tiger Woods scored an ace on this hole during the 1997 Phoenix Open.
