For all our golf fanatics. Here's a list of the top 5 public courses in Scottsdale, and overview of each course.
Designers: Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish
Distinguishing characteristics: Impeccable conditions, top-notch service, state-of-the-art clubhouse, spacious practice facility, and most importantly PGA Tour–level golf. The finishing stretch of holes offers multiple high-risk/high-reward scoreable holes, such as the short, par-5, 15th over-water hole, as well as the drivable, par-4 17th.
Why now: Every year at the beginning of February, the PGA travels to Scottsdale for The Waste Management Phoenix Open, also known as “The Greatest Show on Grass.” The tournament, which is sometimes overshadowed by the wild party that surrounds it, is the highest-attended golf tournament worldwide, with more than 700,000 fans yearly. tpc.com
