Here’s a really nice article on the atmosphere of the FBR Open at the Tournament Players Club in Scottsdale.
Here’s a selection of quotes.
Many women came dressed in lowcut tops or designer dresses, wearing platform shoes or stiletto heels. A few guys stood near the walkway, sipping beer and making catcalls as the women passed.
” It’s crazy,” he said. ” This is not a golf tournament, it’s a party.”
” Its kind of like spring break for adults.”
Scottsdale residents Dave Leonard and his wife quietly observed the golfer’s putts on the low-key fifth hole. ” We just came for the golf,” Leonard said. ” Our partying days are over.”
I’m with Dave Leonard on that one.
So, if you’ve been planning on retiring in Scottsdale, buy now and catch the entire FBR Open next year. And if you move quickly I can have you in your new Scottsdale home by March, the height of spring in the desert.
