Writers Get To Experience a Taste Of Arizona Golf
Beginning this Sunday, more than 100 golf writers from around the world will congregate in Scottsdale at the Xona Resort Suites for the Xona Golf Media Classic. Now in its 9th year, the Xona Golf Media Classic showcases exceptional Scottsdale-area golf courses and this year won’t disappoint. For three nights and four days the writers will get to experience great food, drink and exciting entertainment. And most important, they will experience four fabulous golf courses in Desert Forest, Superstition Mountain, We-Ko-Pa and Southern Dunes.
The Media Classic was the brainchild of the AZGA’s own Bill Huffman who felt golf in Arizona was sorely under marketed. “Our area is such a great golf destination, but we didn’t have a national presence,” said Huffman. “So I figured we needed to sell the story to the most credible sources: golf writers. I put one and one together and came up with three.” He was right.
Played December 5-8, the Xona Golf Media Classic has quickly become the largest golf writer/ broadcasters bash in the world.
