Phoenix Open  

The Biggest Party on the PGA Tour
This might be the only stop on the PGA Tour where you can see Justin Leonard flipping off the gallery after getting booed at the infamous 16th hole. It’s the Phoenix Open and it’s not your grandparent’s spectator stop on the tour. You won’t find any exclusive clubhouses or stuffy after-game events. You won’t hear docile crowds offering polite claps.

Drawing more spectators than any other golf tournament in the world, what started in 1932 as a simple stop on the PGA Tour is now an unrivaled, enthusiastic event spanning four days, with half a million spectators. But it’s not just the incredible weather, nor one of the biggest purses in the sport that draw big names and big games to the PGA Tour each year. Nor is it the chance to see history made, such as when March Calcavecchia played an incredible 28 under par in 2001.

There’s plenty to keep fans busy during off hours too, from upscale spas to fine dining, even upper echelon entertainment such as the Phoenix Symphony, the Desert Botanical Gardens, and the Arizona Science Center with a massive IMAX complex.

Known as the biggest party on the PGA Tour, the Phoenix Open certainly lives up to the reputation. The legendary giant white tent known as the Bird’s Nest features nightly after-game parties featuring live concerts and celebrity faces. And the surrounding city of 4 million, the sixth largest city in the United States and already a prime R&R destination for the wealthy, kicks into high gear for the 4 day party event.

"I don't remember anything before or after the 16th hole. Oh wait... I guess because that was my first (and last) stop!"
