Waste Management Phoenix Open 
"The Greatest Show on the Grass"

 Come watch the largest professional golf tournament on the PGA Gulf Tour!

Annually sporting the largest crowds on the PGA TOUR, the Waste Management Phoenix Open has gained legendary status for being unlike any other golf tournament. Not only is it one of the fifth oldest events on the PGA TOUR schedule, it also features one of the most unique holes on TOUR – the famous 16th. The 16th hole at TPC Scottsdale is normally a routine 162-yard, par-3, but come tournament week the hole is completely transformed into a stadium with enough room for 15,000 screaming fans. It’s a great opportunity for players and fans to interact.

Combine that with 132 of the top golfers on the PGA TOUR including Bubba Watson, Rickie Fowler, Phil Mickelson and Brandt Snedeker to name a few and it’s easy to see why this event has grown to where it is today.

And, when the sun sets at TPC Scottsdale the party heats up at the Coors Light Birds Nest. The Birds Nest features new artists every year. While the music each night may be different, one thing still remains the same – The Coors Light Birds Nest is THE PLACE TO BE in Scottsdale during the Waste Management Phoenix Open!   http://www.experiencescottsdale.com/

Annual Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show

Location:  West World of Scottsdale
16601 North Pima Road
Scottsdale, AZ 85260 

Show up for the annual Arabian Horse Show!
Lots of fun and entertainment for the whole family! 


Since 1955 the Annual Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show has set the pace in the Arabian horse world. The first show was held at the grounds of the Arizona Biltmore Hotel which was a beautiful setting for a horse show. The Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show was a first class show from the very first day.

After the show’s beginnings at the Arizona Biltmore, Ann McCormick bought 150 acres in Scottsdale and made it into the horse facility known as Paradise Park which served the needs of the show for many years. Since that time, the show has been held at Westworld in Scottsdale. It has grown from 50 horses to nearly 2400 horses bringing top owners, trainers and breeders from around the world competing for a chance at winning. A win at Scottsdale can mean big money in the breeding barns.

The 2015 event marks the 60th anniversary of the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show. Don’t miss this milestone year as the Arabian Horse Show continues its tradition of quality competitors, energy and excitement at this event. http://www.experiencescottsdale.com/
