A top golf event, the Waste Management Phoenix Open, starts January 31 in Scottsdale.

“The greatest show on grass” — the Waste Management Phoenix Open — kicks off  the 76th playing of the event on January 31 at the picturesque TPC in Scottsdale. One of the five oldest events on the PGA TOUR (not including the major championships,) the Phoenix Open is one of the most well-attended golf events in the country.

This year, a new venue, offering fabulous views, will greet spectators at the event:   The Fry’s 19th Hole on the Water. Located across the lake from the 18th fairway and open to the public, The Fry’s 19th Hole on the Water will be a fantastic place to watch golf, grab a beverage and enjoy some great food from Fry’s Food and Garcia’s Mexican Restaurants. The Fry’s 19th Hole on the Water includes bleacher seating (facing the 17th green and 18th tee) and can accommodate thousands of fans.  There’s even an interactive golf fun zone complete with golf ball hitting stations, putting greens and professional instruction from Southwest Section PGA professionals.

“Every year we try to add something new for fans to enjoy at the Open,” said 2011 Waste Management Phoenix Open Tournament Chairman Mike McQuaid. “Fry’s has really stepped up and made The Fry’s 19th Hole on the Water one of the best areas to watch golf at the tournament. Fans will have great views of the action on both the 17th green and the 18th hole. Plus, with the help of Corporate Village sponsor i/o Data Centers, we’re adding the very cool golf fun zone for both Fry’s 19th Hole and Corporate Village patrons.”

Lots of golf fans who come into town for this great golf affair can also find exciting nighttime entertainment at Casino Arizona at Talking Stick (the Loop 101 and Indian Bend) or Casino Arizona Salt River (the Loop 101 and McKellips.)   Poker, slots, blackjack, live entertainment, top-notch dining and relaxing lounges are all available for the visitor who enjoys casino gaming and amenities.
