2015 Waste Management Phoenix Open
Jan 26 – February 1, All Day
This annual PGA event attracts the largest and most boisterous crowds on the PGA tour. Played at the TPC in Scottsdale, Arizona the tournament runs all week with practice rounds and Pro-Am events.
The large crowds make planning important, especially transportation to the course. There are parking lots off-site with shuttle buses running to and from the event all day long. For information on parking at the Phoenix Open, click here.http://wmphoenixopen.com/spectator-info/parking-and-directions/. Also, keep in mind there will be thousands of Super Bowl fans in town and just driving around the Scottsdale area will be a challenge.
The Bird’s Nest is a popular spot during play and after with great entertainment and refreshments. The 16th hole, par 3 is a great spot to watch the action. This is the hole where Tiger Woods hit a hole in one. The crowds here can be heard all around the course as the hole is transformed with stadium seating that accommodates 16,000 fans.
If you’re in town for any of the Super Bowl events, we highly recommend a day at the Phoenix Open. The TPC course is spectacular, the crowd watching excellent and the golf is always memorable.
