It’s a new year and as the winter gets into the full-swing, that can only mean one thing in Scottsdale: it’s time for golf. While other parts of the country battle the cold and snow, Phoenix, Arizona resorts are gearing up for out-of-town visitors attending the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Known in the golf world as "The Greatest Show on the Grass," the Waste Management Phoenix Open is a favorite stop on the PGA Tour. In fact, last year, the event drew over half a million spectators and golf enthusiasts. If you'll be attending the Waste Management Phoenix Open, here are a few things you can do to ensure your visit is filled with all the fun and luxury that Scottsdale has to offer.
The always popular celebrity event, the Annexus Pro-Am, begins at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, February 3. Arrive early to reserve a spot and watch celebrities compete on the green. This year you can expect to see Tiger Woods, Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians and Dierk Bentley, among others.
Speaking of Dierks Bentley, he is one of four musical acts that will be performing at The Coors Light Birds Nest this year. Rascal Flatts, Robin Thicke, and Tiësto will also be performing concerts during the Waste Management Phoenix Open. The Birds Nest opens at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, February 3, through Saturday, February 6.
If you’re traveling with family or young golfers, you will want to check out the R.S. Hoyt Jr. Family Foundation Dream Day Activities. The Trick Shot Show and Junior Golf Clinic presented by PING, in particular, are not to missed.
While nearly all Phoenix Arizona resorts offer pools or even a spa, nothing quite compares to the unique amenities and luxury of The Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch.
