Don’t Miss Waste Management Phoenix Open 2020

The Waste Management Phoenix Open, also known as the Greatest Game on Grass, is legendary among golf enthusiasts. Coming to Scottsdale, Arizona each winter, it is the world’s best-attended golf tournament.

If it’s one thing that Scottsdale, Arizona is known for, is the Waste Management Phoenix Open, January 27th-February 2nd. The WMPO annually sees the biggest crowds on the PGA tour and starts this year with golf played by such luminaries as Phil Mickelson, Bubba Watson, Keegan Bradley, Rickie Fowler, and Brandt Snedeker. For first time visitors, it’s an absolute must to check out Hole 16, with its stadium seating and crowd numbers exceeding 16,000! For tacos and tequila, you’ll find the new and improved El Rancho on 12.

What a lot of folks don’t realize is that WMPO is a completely green event, with excellent material management every year. The 2020 Waste Management Phoenix Open will be held from January 27, 2020, to February 2, 2020, on the Scottsdale Tournament Players Club (TPC Scottsdale). You can easily find tickets to the WMPO, supported by key sponsors Ak-Chin and Coors Light here. You can check out the full schedule of event below.
