Waste Management Phoenix Open safety tips

The Scottsdale Police and Fire departments suggest these tips for a fun and safe time at the Waste Management Phoenix Open:

  • See something? Say something! Report any crime or questionable activity right away.
  • People who attend the tournament should hydrate prior to and during the event, wear sunscreen, and wear weather appropriate clothing (hats, sunglasses and walking shoes).
  • Be mindful of where you’re carrying your valuables (wallet, money, purse, and cell phone). Remember to lock your car and do not leave purses and other valuables in plain sight.
  • The golf course has uneven, unpadded surfaces.  Please wear appropriate footwear.
  • Use a sober driver or take a cab.
  • Pay attention to your surroundings. Make sure you familiarize yourself with the area.
  • Charge your phone. Memorize or write down important numbers in case your phone dies.
  • Study the traffic route you will be taking to get to your event. Remember where you parked (take a picture of the parking location/sign). Gas up your vehicle beforehand.
  • Be courteous to others, be patient, and have a great time in Scottsdale.
