The 2018 Phoenix Open: Bringing Event Design Inspiration to Life

For the fourth consecutive year, CORT Events partnered with Waste Management and the The Phoenix Open to provide event design expertise to one of the largest golf tournaments on the PGA Tour. Held Jan. 29 to Feb. 4 in Scottsdale, Arizona, the event at TPC Scottsdale-Champions Course required various staging areas, including VIP and sponsor areas, catering to over 650,000 attendees. CORT Events delivered at least 12 trailers filled with more than 10,000 individual pieces of furniture.

CORT implemented 2018’s hottest design trends into every inch of the event space and added to the overall ambiance of the tournament by providing chic and relaxing spaces for event attendees to enjoy throughout the weekend.



Check out some of the ways CORT brought inspiration to life in VIP areas around the course: 

The Cove at 17 is located on the south side of the 17th green and provides one of the most valued suite hospitality opportunities for corporate participants. CORT provided a guest experience fit for VIPs who enjoyed the tournament from this box, drawing inspiration from yacht club décor. A welcome 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.

The Loge is one of the most renowned 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 viewing deck with a bird’s-eye view to all the excitement on the 15th green. 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.

The Bay Club on 17 offers 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’s eye for design and foresight into the wants and needs of customers created a seamless, zero-waste event that catered to hundreds of thousands of delighted fans.
