It’s the Greatest Show on Grass!
It is that time of year again, time for every golf enthusiast to make your way to the “Greatest Show on Grass” also known as the Phoenix Open this February 1-7, 2016. This year’s festivities are particularly special as the Town’s Tourism Division makes its sponsorship debut at the Open! Not only does Fountain Hills have a full page advertisement in the Phoenix Open program guide, but Fountain Hills is also the proud sponsor of hole #11!
The Phoenix Open festivities begin on Monday February 1 with the practice rounds for the PGA Tour pros. Tuesday opens with more professional practice rounds followed by the ever popular trick shot show and junior golf clinic. Wednesday welcomes the Pro Am as well as the opening of the Coors Light Birds Nest entertainment tent. The real festivities begin on Thursday with the first round beginning bright and early at 7:30 a.m. Rounds continue through the rest of the weekend.
Adorned on the hole sign for hole #11 patrons to this popular spring sporting event will see the proud logo of the Fountain Hills Tourism Division. Hole #11 is a par 4 and is 472 yards in length. Show your pride for the town we know to be the best town in the world and come to the Phoenix Open next week in a show of support for our tourism efforts. It is tradition for hole #16 to be the most popular but with a little community support we can make our sponsored hole even more popular!
