The People's Open in Scottsdale is just around the corner, taking place from February 5-11.
If you're planning on attending the 2024 WM Phoenix Open or the concerts at the Coors Light Birds Nest, there are a few important things you need to know about traveling to and from the golf tournament at TPC Scottsdale. The Phoenix Open is part of the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup.
Tournament Chairman George Thimsen recommends checking the tournament website for first tee times before heading out. Frost delays are possible, so it's best to be prepared. Thimsen advises arriving early to give yourself ample time to get there.
Parking can be a challenge, so it's a good idea to leave early and be patient. The tournament attracts a large crowd, and as it continues to grow, it may take even longer to get to your destination. Thimsen encourages everyone to be patient and enjoy the experience.
To avoid heavy traffic when leaving the tournament, it's recommended to leave at least an hour before the end of play each day, possibly even earlier.
Here's what you need to know about parking, shuttles, and Uber/Lyft locations for the Waste Management Open 2024:
Because of the heavy traffic, it's encouraged to ride-share or carpool to the event.
If you choose to use a ride-share service, drop-off and pick-up are located in Lot R of the Bell94 Sports Complex, at 9390 E. Bell Road.
If you're getting a ride from someone, there's a convenient stop-and-drop location near the main tournament entrance at Bell Road and Greenway-Hayden Loop.
Free shuttle services will be operating between the parking lots and the tournament entrances. The shuttles typically take 15-20 minutes from Salt River Fields and about 10 minutes from WestWorld lots.
