Once a year, golf fans from across the world descend upon Phoenix for what is known as “The Greatest Show on Grass.” Already, enthusiasts are making arrangements for the 2019 Phoenix Waste Management Open to be held January 29 to February 4 on the TPC Scottsdale. The PGA Tour’s top players will be here for the year’s first major golf event, with the first round starting on February 1.
There’s a reason an estimated 500,000 spectators will take part in this outing, also known as the FBR Open. It’s about more than just golf. There are plenty of activities to excite and delight both golfers and non-golfers alike, creating an experience that’s second to none. Every year, there’s a bright mix of fresh events and favorite traditions that keep visitors coming back for more.
Here’s what’s planned for this wonderful week:
R.S. Hoyt Jr. Family Foundation Dream Day Activities and San Tan Ford Special Olympics Open
While the PGA Tour pros take to the links for practice rounds, ticket holders are invited on January 30 for two special events. R.S. Hoyt Jr. Family Foundation Dream Day Activities kick off at 10 a.m. at the TPC Champions Course Practice Range. Listen to motivational speeches delivered by the top names in golf, take part in the trick shot show and junior golf clinic presented by PING. At 11 a.m., the San Tan Ford Special Olympics Open takes place at the TPC Scottsdale Putting Green, featuring Special Olympian athletes, celebrities, sports stars, and community leaders.
Considered to be the most exciting hole on the TPC Scottsdale greens, the Phoenix Suns Charities “Shot at Glory” takes place at 3:30 p.m. on January 31, following the Annexus Pro-Am. Several celebrities and others, including members of the Phoenix Suns basketball team and a randomly selected ticket holder, will vie for the chance to land a hole-in-one in “the Coliseum.” Cash prizes and matching charitable donations up to $1 million are on the line.
Throughout the rest of the tourney, this is the spot to catch some of the most nail-biting action. Skybox seats are available for those who enjoy a bird’s-eye view.
Coors Light Birds Nest
Once the rounds are made on the course, it’s time to start a different kind of round at the Coors Light Birds Nest. This is the entertainment hotspot for the Open, located directly across from TPC Scottsdale. Check the calendar schedule as each day there’s a different can’t-miss performance lined up. The concert series will be announced soon, with big names in music like Kid Rock, Flo Rida, and One Direction taking to the stage around 8:30 p.m. each evening. Gates open at 3:30 p.m. with options including general admission, VIP admission (including a hosted bar and catered buffet) and VIP Pit Pass (food, bar, and an exclusive reserved area in front of the stage).
Where to Stay for the Phoenix Waste Management Open
When you’re in Scottsdale, there’s no better place to stay during a big event like your own luxury vacation rental from Holiday Rental’s prestigious collection of homes. You and your guests will enjoy a peaceful ambiance away from the throngs who will be staying at local hotels and resorts. Instead, you’ll be able to relax in seclusion in an estate equipped with every amenity you might desire. Wake up in the morning and enjoy a quiet breakfast or coffee on the patio. When you’re done watching the pros, come back and practice your own swing on a private putting green, or take a dip in a heated pool and spa.
These luxury homes have room for groups of anywhere from 10 to 20 people, with multiple bedrooms and en-suite baths. There’s room for everyone to gather in the common areas, prepare meals in luxury kitchens, or simply unwind watching highlights of the day’s action on big screen TVs (did we mention, many of these homes have media rooms, as well as billiards rooms and full bars?).
When you’re ready to go to bed, you’ll be enveloped in soft hotel-quality sheets, provided as part of your stay along with towels and toiletries. During the day, our daily housekeeping service will come in to tidy up, take out the garbage, and refresh linens so you can return to a clean home.
We want your stay with us to be a pleasant experience in every way possible. Upon arrival, our villa ambassadors will greet you at your home-away-from-home and take you on a tour of the property, pointing out the various features and how they work. We also offer 24/7 guest services to assist you with any needs throughout your stay. Basic concierge services are available for help with transportation, reservations, and securing special services like a masseuse or chef. There is also an option to hire an additional full-time concierge should you need one.
