The Thunderbirds, hosts of the Waste Management Phoenix Open, announced today tickets are now on sale for the 2022 tournament, scheduled to be played Feb. 7-13 at TPC Scottsdale. Additionally, Tournament Chairman Michael Golding unveiled plans for the 2022 edition of “The People’s Open,” saying The Thunderbirds are optimistic and preparing to resume traditional tournament operations, build venues, welcome fans and host activities typically seen during tournament week.
“We are excited to prepare for the 2022 Waste Management Phoenix Open and look forward to giving back in a big way to our community,” said Tournament Chairman Michael Golding. “Last year brought extraordinary circumstances which required us to make some significant changes. It was difficult for everyone, but this year we plan on making a concerted effort to return to the normal operations of ‘The People’s Open’ our fans know and love.”
General admission tickets are priced at $50 for Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday, while Friday and Saturday general admission tickets are $75. Additionally, a weekly sponsor badge that includes four daily general admission tickets (Wednesday through Sunday) and one good all week reserved parking pass is available for $750. Thanks to Arizona Ford Dealers, all patrons will once again receive free admission to Monday’s Pro-Am and Tuesday practice rounds as part of Ford Free Days.
All-inclusive hospitality packages also are on sale including Members Club, Clubhouse, Chairman’s Club Packages and the ever-popular Greenskeeper package. These packages offer a wide range of food and beverage options, VIP seating, enhanced viewing areas and other additional benefits.
“The interest in 2022 hospitality packages has been off the charts,” said Golding. “Every year sees strong interest from fans and sponsors, but with many people missing out on the 2021 event due to limited attendance, we fully expect to see even more interest than normal years. In fact, most of our hospitality venues are already on wait lists, and our other hospitality packages are going fast.”
All of the hospitality venues that were present in 2020 will be back, including the three-level stadium at the iconic 16th hole, as well as Bay Club and Cove on 17, and E18hteen and Scorekeepers on the 18th hole.
“Fans can expect TPC Scottsdale to have the same look and feel to which they are accustomed for the 2022 playing of ‘The Greatest and Greenest Show on Grass’,” said Golding. “But we are working on a few new updates here and there that should really get fans excited. Stay tuned on that.”

The 2022 WM Phoenix Open will take place Feb. 7-13 at TPC Scottsdale. “The People’s Open” has been named the Tournament of the Year by the PGA TOUR four times in the past seven years (2014, 2015, 2018, 2019) to acknowledge the tournament’s legendary status as one the most unique events in golf. The 2022 edition will mark the 87th playing of the event (one of the five oldest events on the PGA TOUR) and the 13th with Waste Management as title sponsor.
The Thunderbirds were founded in 1937 with the mission of promoting the Valley of the Sun through sports. The Thunderbirds consist of 55 “active” members and more than 280 “life” members who have helped the tournament eclipse $161 million in charitable giving since its inception in 1932 (through the 2020 tournament).
