3 Inspiring Scottsdale Golf Experiences
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (April 17, 2020) – There is one thing certain right now; everyone is daydreaming of traveling. In Scottsdale, our courses have taken precautions to help ensure the well-being of all players, and they can’t wait to welcome golf travelers as soon it is safe to do so.
With over 50 courses in Scottsdale, there is plenty of golf to share! Here are three stand-out experiences to keep players dreaming about their next visit to the World’s Finest Golf Destination.
The phenomenal TPC Scottsdale Stadium Course is always a bucket-list experience. However, it is even more so when played ahead of the Waste Management Phoenix Open. From November to mid-January, players walk through the tunnel to the tee box on the infamous 16th hole and can hit their tee shots to the green inside the most notorious “coliseum” on the PGA TOUR. You can almost hear the cheers (and jeers) from here. Next up is the Blair O’Neal Boulder Challenge at Troon North. The object is for players to hit the iconic boulder in the middle of the fairway with their tee shots on the Monument Course’s par-5 third hole and then make birdie. It’s a tall order, but the reward is a Sonoran Desert Golf experience like no other. Not to be outdone, Grayhawk Golf Club’s Tom Fazio-designed Raptor Course has a trick of its own. “Big Sky,” the course’s 18th hole, normally is played as a par 5. Yet real players, like the men and women who’ll compete in NCAA Championships next spring, play it as a par 4. Getting home in two here is no joke. The hole runs more than 500 yards from the back tees, and everything slopes to the water on the right. Good luck.
We hope these challenges give inspiration to golfers at home and keep them dreaming about their next Scottsdale adventure.
