Scottsdale Announces Dates for Upcoming Golf Events

May 21, 2014
TPC Scottsdale Sets Nov. 14 for Grand Re-Opening, TopGolf Riverwalk to Open in June

Scottsdale, Arizona, has announced two events that likely will have a positive impact on golf tourism in the area.

TPC Scottsdale to Get Makeover
In February, PGA Tour Pro Kevin Stadler dominated TPC Scottsdale’s Stadium Course as he took home the coveted Waste Management Phoenix Open title. Next year, Stadler and his predecessors may have trouble recognizing the legendary course. For the first time since it opened in 1986, TPC Scottsdale’s Stadium Course will undergo a complete makeover. The crews at TPC Scottsdale will be working diligently this summer to complete the ambitious seven month, $12 million renovation of the Stadium Course and Clubhouse. Plans call for resurfacing all greens, renovating all of the bunkers and tees, and augmenting the challenge and playability of select holes. In addition, the Stadium Course will have new cart paths and enhanced landscaping. And of course, the Clubhouse will get a facelift as well with upgraded décor and amenities. The facilities are scheduled to reopen Nov. 14. In the meantime, TPC Scottsdale’s popular Champions Course and Clubhouse will remain open to guests.

TopGolf to Make Entry in Scottsdale Market
The greater Scottsdale area is known for its golf, with pristine, challenging conditions and playability nearly every day of the year. But this spring, a new entertainment complex will take a different spin on golf in the Valley of the Sun. TopGolf Riverwalk will open in June at Talking Stick: An Emerging Cultural and Entertainment Destination on the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community. The 65,000-suqare-foot facility will host a variety of golf games using microchip golf balls, from the “TopScramble” team challenge to the short game “TopChip.” You’ll test your skills by aiming for various targets on a 215-yard field, and celebrate your victory at TopGolf’s full service bar with food and drink. You and your friends can also kick back playing pool or shuffleboard after hitting a few golf balls. Whether a golf novice or golf pro, TopGolf offers an exciting day at the green for everyone. For media information, contact Adrienne Browne at or 469-546-5370.
