Golf-themed event will include competitions and clinics at local courses 
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Scottsdale-based OB Sports Golf Management is proud to announce five courses in its portfolio will participate in the inaugural Scottsdale Golf Week, taking place December 5-11, 2016. ASU Karsten, Eagle Mountain Golf Club, Longbow Golf Club, McDowell Mountain Golf Club and Palm Valley Golf Club will each feature exclusive promotions for players enjoying early December’s perfect golf conditions.

“I’m happy to see so many of our courses taking part in Scottsdale Golf Week,” said OB Sports President C.A. Roberts. “I love the concept, and I think it’s just a great tool for people to play more golf at some of the most beautiful courses in the country. It’s a natural fit.”

Modeled after the wildly successful Restaurant Week, Scottsdale is applying the same award-winning formula to golf. It is designed to commemorate the game’s star-studded legacy in the destination by offering visitors special pricing, offers and vacation packages at dozens of the most celebrated courses, resorts and attractions.

“Golf is an integral part of Scottsdale’s identity,” said Caroline Stoeckel, vice president of marketing for the Scottsdale Convention & Visitors Bureau, a major sponsor of Scottsdale Golf Week. “There are 51 golf courses within the City and more than 200 in the surrounding area. Combine these factors with Scottsdale’s other attributes – the climate, natural beauty, nightlife, resorts and other attractions – and you’ve got the ‘World’s Finest Golf Destination.’ Our goal is to put our golf Mecca on display for all to enjoy during Scottsdale Golf Week.”

For the most avid golfers, the week will include a variety of golf-themed special events, instructional clinics and competitions. For those who like to pack their schedules with golf and outside activities, Golf Week will also showcase the destination’s unique dining and shopping opportunities.

A detailed calendar of activities, packages and opportunities for Scottsdale Golf Week is available at As additional properties, courses and attraction come on board, updated information will be provided on the website and via the bureau’s social media channels.
