Scottsdale


Arizona

Tournament City

Scottsdale's idyllic climate make it a natural to host some the country's most important golf tournaments. Home to five major professional golf tours and six of Golf Magazine's top 100 courses, Scottsdale is without peer when it comes to championship levels of the game for pros and spectators alike.

The grand-daddy of them all is the FBR Open(formerly the Phoenix Open), which since 1935 has drawn some of the biggest names in the sport, including Tiger Woods, Tom Watson, Rocco Mediate and Phil Mickelson. Traditionally played in January during Super Bowl weekend at the Tournament Players Club of Scottsdale, the FBR Open is one of the PGA's best known tourneys and its top draw, attracting more than 400,000 people for a week of pro-am events, pro-celebrity shoot-outs and of course nail-biting PGA action.
During March, it is the ladies turn as the LPGA's prestigious Ping Banner Health Tournament gets into swing at Moon Valley.
In May, the newly minted Bon Appetit Celebrity Chef Golf Invitational pairs top talents of the culinary world with celebrities for a feast of fine food and competitive tournaments staged at some of Scottsdale’s finest resort courses. Past event hosts included Chefs Todd English, Daniel Boulud and Bobby Flay.
