2023 WM Phoenix Open

The WM Phoenix Open (WMPO), part of the PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup, returns to Scottsdale February 9th-12th, 2023! Known as both the “Greenest Show on Grass” for its sustainability efforts (it’s the world’s largest zero-waste event) and as “The People’s Open”. The tournament annually brings golf’s biggest names to TPC Scottsdale for the PGA Tour’s best-attended event.

The tournament consistently ranks among the best things to do in Greater Phoenix and, in past years, has drawn upwards of 600,000 fans to its mix of golf, unique photo ops, viewing experiences, and after-hours entertainment!

What to know before you go:

  • Breakfast Club- Each year, thousands of fans line up outside the course’s main gate as early as 4:30 a.m. on Saturday morning for the best possible seats at the 16th hole — and you’re welcome to join them. Fondly referred to as the Breakfast Club, event organizers greet these early risers with breakfast burritos, beverages, music, and live DJs. Since the first golf shot doesn’t take place until somewhere between 9:30 and 10 a.m., think of it as the Black Friday experience of the golf world. Why not check that off your bucket list, too?
  • Autographs & Photos- Player autographs can only be obtained at designated Autograph Zones. On competition days, no standalone photo or video cameras are allowed other than mobile devices. Photo and video cameras can be used on practice days only. 
  • Attire- Golf isn’t the only spectator sport at this event. Here, almost anything goes on the fashion front. While golf gear is recommended – polos, sundresses, and comfortable shoes – you’re likely to see everything from high-end fashion (yes, even heels) to group costumes! Extra note: Fans are encouraged to wear green in support of the tournament’s green/eco-sensitive efforts in an “All-Day Green Out” on Saturday. There are also shops throughout the course where you can pick up a souvenir hat, shirt, and more!

With more than three hundred and thirty days of sunshine each year, Scottsdale certainly provides the best weather for a fun recreational golf game. If you are a golf lover already living in Scottdale, you are probably familiar with some, or all of the golf courses. While playing golf, one thing all of us want is to have as much fun as possible, even professional players can attest to this simple truth.  But, you cannot have a fun game on a bad course – that will only frustrate you.  Also, how can you enjoy a good golf game on a course where you have to spend more than half of the time of play looking for your balls or your opponent’s? That will rub off all the fun from the game. These golf courses listed here gives you enough room to hit your ball and find it easily off the tee. This makes the game more interesting and fun. Remember the aim is to have as much fun as possible!

The following courses are some of the more popular golf courses in Scottdale but that’s just our opinion, we’ll like to hear yours especially if you’ve ever played in a golf course in Scottdale.

1. Troon North ($189-$249)
Troon North is one of the courses in Scottdale. This public course is made up of two courses – Pinnacle Peak course and Monument course. The Pinnacle Peak course is set at the base of a Pinnacle while the Monument course which is considered the better of the two is named after the Monument under the third hole. The Troon North golf course has 36 holes, all designed in desert style by Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morris. Both courses provide spectacular views and with tees placed high above fairways. The course also have a few carries and good vistas from the tees making it easier for balls to be found. The Troon North also provides extensive practice facilities, so if you will like a little warm-up before the actual game, you can do so with ease.

With great Clubhouses, golf instructions, PGA tour level golf and lots of practice equipment, TPC Scottdale is more than just a golf course, it’s a whole new experience. What’s even more exciting about this course is the finishing stretch which includes two risk-reward holes – one over water (the par-5 15th) and the other drivable (par-4 17th), making every game as dramatic as possible.

3. Camelback Golf Club ($100-$200)
