One of the great things about the Waste Management Open professional golf tournament compared to other perhaps more exclusive sporting events is that they never sell out of tickets. Single day passes start around $25 and kids 17 and under are free (when accompanied by an adult).
Come prepared with plenty of water, sunscreen and a great pair of walking shoes as the course is spread out. Many visitors walk from hole to hole, following their favorite player. I generally go with a big group of friends and watch parade style, bringing out our camp chairs, scoping prime viewing real estate, and just lounging for the day.
Be sure to arrive early and camp out at your favorite spot. The infamous 16th hole allows nearly 20,000 fans to sit and enjoy a stadium-like experience. Warning: this hole provides an electric atmosphere so watch out for those spectators more inclined toward the sport of drinking.
Cameras are only allowed on practice days during the tournament, so from Thursday to Sunday leave your cameras at home.
There are plenty of great food options when you’rehungry after a long day of golf. Zinburger great for mouth-watering burgers and the most delicious shakes.
It’s become a tradition amongst my friends to go every year and it just keeps getting better and better.
With plenty of public parking and a pretty convenient and easy to maneuver shuttle system, there is nothing stopping you from enjoying a sunny day on the green.
