Gauntlet Tournament Coming to Scottsdale

29 Aug, 2016

Escape the winter doldrums by joining Golf Digest in sunny Scottsdale, Arizona, for a luxurious golf and gastronomy adventure December 7-11, 2016. The four-day getaway will showcase the majestic beauty of Scottsdale, providing a picturesque juxtaposition of its desert mountains to its lush green fairways that await your best shots. 

The centerpiece of this one-of-a-kind experience is The Gauntlet tournament, which is comprised of three rounds of world-class golf. The first two rounds will be contested at the beautiful and challenging We-Ko-Pa and Grayhawk Golf Clubs. The final round, played in an exciting “obstacle golf” format, will be held at the world-renowned Troon North Monument course, where players will rely on inspired shot-making skills to navigate the course as reimagined by the creative minds at Golf Digest. (Hole challenges include pressure-launcher tee shots; putting to small and large cups; target tee shots; and playing with antique clubs, just to name a few.)

Great golf is not the only item on the itinerary. Guests will also indulge in amazing activities at Scottsdale’s hottest attractions and tantalize taste buds with multi-cultural Southwestern epicurean delights.
