Tickets are now on sale for 2022 Waste Management Phoenix Open, and the hosts, The Thunderbirds, expect next year’s event to look like it did prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.

It is scheduled to be played Feb. 7-13 at TPC Scottsdale.

“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,” tournament chairman Michael Golding said in a press release. “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 $50 for Thursday and Sunday of the event. The Friday and Saturday sessions are $75.

Fans can pay $750 for four daily general admission tickets for Wednesday through Sunday, plus a parking pass that is acceptable the entire week, which includes a Monday Pro-Am and a Tuesday practice round.

There are also a range of hospitality packages now on sale.

In 2021, a limit of 5,000 fans were allowed each day at the TPC Scottsdale course.

The rowdy 16th hole grandstands, instead of hosting thousands of fans, were outfitted with cardboard cutouts of fans’ faces to raise money for charity.
