Be Prepared 

The Phoenix Open will run from January 27 to February 2, 2020. Expect a lot of people travelling during this time. Parking will be an absolute nightmare, so it might be best to book a taxi service in advance. If you’re a golf fan, think about how you want to watch the tournament. The Waste Management Phoenix Open website suggests two ways of watching: Choose the players to follow around the course if you want to go “cross-country” style, or go “parade” style and pick a good spot and watch the tournament as it goes along. 

Make sure to print a map of the course. It’s important to know where the first aid booths are. Take note of food-stall and concessionaire locations around the area, in case you get hungry.

Bring the Essentials

Depending on how you want to watch the tournament, you may bring a light camping chair or picnic blanket to sit on. Don’t forget the essentials: a reusable water bottle, cap, sunglasses, and binoculars to get a good view of the players. Make sure to dress in layers – mornings can be a little chilly, but once it’s noon, it gets warmer. Wear comfortable shoes, especially if you’re planning to go “cross-country” style.

Mind Your Manners

Golf is a sport that requires utmost concentration. When players are positioning to hit the ball, silence is expected from the crowd. Yelling, pushing and shoving to get closer to the players is a huge no-no!

Other Activities

If you’re with someone who isn’t a fan of golf, or if you want a change of scenery after a long day of following the course, plan for other activities around the Phoenix Open. The Murmuration Show at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art runs till May 2020, so you can catch it during the Phoenix Open. If you want to go on a food trip, the Scottsdale Food street is ready to welcome you with local cuisines. Other notable destinations near the area are the Odysea Aquarium and the Musical Instrument Museum
