The Phoenix Open was held Jan. 29 to Feb. 4 in Scottsdale, Arizona, at TPC Scottsdale-Champions Course. Hosting more than 650,000 attendees over the course of the tournament, CORT Events created various staging areas, including VIP and sponsor areas allowing guests to enjoy their weekend on the links. CORT Events worked with The Waste Management Phoenix Open to deliver over 12 trailers filled with more than 10,000 individual pieces of furniture. CORT furniture rental was essential to the event’s zero-waste goal, meaning that everything at the event was recycled or reusable. Using an eye for design and industry expertise, CORT exceeded every expectation.
The Cove at 17
CORT provided a guest experience fit for VIPs who enjoyed the tournament from this box, drawing inspiration from yacht club decor. Offering an elite oasis in the middle of the Arizona desert, the yacht club aesthetic was achieved by incorporating comfortable seating in colors and fabrics reminiscent of the shore. Located on the south side of the 17th green, The Cove at 17 offered one of the most valued suite hospitality opportunities for corporate participants, elevated by design concepts that provided elegant and welcoming spaces.
Inspired by farm chic trends, the Loge featured refined wood textures, pops of greenery mixed with industrial textures and plush furniture for guests to relax. One of the most renowned VIP venues on the PGA TOUR, The Loge opened into a shared luxurious lounge area with all-inclusive food and beverage and ended on a comfortable deck with a bird’s-eye view to all the excitement on the 15th green.
The Bay Club
Offering access to an upscale lounge area as well as a viewing platform overlooking the 10th fairway, the open concept of Soho House L.A. inspired CORT Event planners to create a space that was both accessible and private for The Bay Club. Using moveable hedges and refined textures, as well as surprising pops of color and eclectic patterns, The Bay Club reflected the top event design trends of 2018, while serving the needs of each party.
CORT Events wowed attendees of the Phoenix Open for the fourth consecutive year, providing beautiful spaces for guests to enjoy more amenities, more food and beverage more excitement than any other sporting event.
