Learn more at FallForScottsdale.com. MEETINGS REBATE PROGRAM THE SCOTTSDALE AREA IS HOME TO SOME OF THE LARGEST SPORTING EVENTS IN THE COUNTRY, PLAYED IN TOP-NOTCH FACILITIES. GROUPS CAN CONNECT WHILE THEY'RE CHEERING ON THEIR FAVOURITE TEAMS AND WHEN THEY'RE GETTING IN ON THE ACTION. It's no secret that Scottsdale is synony- mous with world-class golf. With the sun shining year-round and more than 200 courses in the area, booking tee times for your group is easy. The 18-hole Phoenician Golf Course has been redesigned with newly contoured fairways and resurfaced green complexes, and the Golf Shop, locker rooms and 19th hole dining venue have also been renovated. Renovations to the Pinnacle course, one of the two 18-hole courses at the award-winning Troon North Golf Club, included updating the green complexes to the shape, size and contours of the original Tom Weiskopf design. For the enthusiasts in your group who like to see the pros at close range, the Waste Management Phoenix Open is held at TPC Scottsdale every year. If different skill levels make golfi ng with your team a challenge, TopGolf is a fun option for pros and non-golfers alike. Participants score points by hitting micro- chipped golf balls at giant targets—the more accurate your shot and the farther it goes, the more points you get. The facility also offers event space with a private bar, Wi-Fi and A/V capabilities. The Cactus League has been a spring- time tradition since 1947. Fifteen Major League Baseball teams head to Arizona to prepare for the season ahead, practicing and playing exhibition games against each other—better known as Spring Training. The San Francisco Giants, Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks all train in Scottsdale and offer group space at their stadiums, making it easy to add a day at the ballpark to your itinerary. For football fans, the PlayStation Fiesta Bowl, one of the country's premier college bowl games, has been held in Arizona since 1971. If you can't be in town for the game, a visit to the Ziegler Fiesta Bowl Museum is a great alternative. Memorabilia and trophies are on display, including all 128 Football Bowl Subdivision team helmets, the Fiesta Bowl and the Heisman Trophy. The museum also can be used for private events.
