KPNX 12 News Discount Golf Card – 10 Rounds for $150

Comments Off Golf, Nearby Things To Do, Uncategorized

Get 10 rounds of golf at 10 of the best courses in Phoenix plus other great offers for only $150. Channel 12 claims the golf discount card is worth $1000, but we beg to differ. The golf courses mostly mediocre, and would be hard pressed to get the $15 a round you’d be paying with this card considering their restrictions. Add in the fact that you would be driving over an hour to play at average courses because the courses are mostly on the extreme ends of the Valley, from Queen Creek to Laveen for example, and this discount card doesn’t seem to be that great. The 12 News Golf Card doesn’t even include a cart. Basically, any golfer can get close to these rates by playing off peak hours anyways. Be careful too, because you can’t even play with other card holders on most courses. We’d recommend not buying this card. If you disagree, let us know! We’d love to hear how you enjoyed your purchase.

Waste Management (Phoenix) Open Raises 4.4 Million for Charities – What About Next Year?

Comments Off Golf, Local Upcoming Events, Nearby Things To Do, Sight Seeing, Uncategorized

The Phoenix Open is one of  Scottsdale’s biggest annual events, drawing huge crowds and celebrities to enjoy “the greatest show on grass.” When in town for the Phoenix Open, many visitors prefer to stay on Scottsdale’s “resort row,”  the section of Scottsdale Road between Shea Blvd and Camelback Roads. Our sunny Scottsdale vacation rental condo is located in the middle of resort row!  Anyways, The Phoenix Open is a fantastic event, and it’s a fundraiser for the Thunderbirds’ charities. Recent news articles suggest that this past year they raised over $4.4 Million  for charities. The fundraising achievement is nothing to balk at, especially considering the major economic challenges and corporate pull backs in earlier 2010. Congrats to the Thunderbirds for another outstanding Phoenix Open, AKA Waste Management Open. We look forward to the 2011 Waste Management Open, and are going to be welcoming guests to our fantastic sunny Scottsdale vacation rental condo.
