Scottsdale's Mayor Mary Manross: A Strong Supporter of the Golf Industry

Scottsdale is known as the world’s finest golf destination. It boasts some of the world’s top daily-fee courses. Troon North Golf Club, Grayhawk Golf Club, Tournament Players Club Scottsdale, and We-Ko-Pa Golf Club are just a few of the city’s nationally-rated courses. Considering that the Scottsdale area features more than 200 courses, including private gem Desert Mountain, you’ll be hard pressed to find an area offering so many great layouts in such close proximity.{mosimage}

In addition, Scottsdale’s Sonoran Desert creates one of the world’s most unique golf settings. Factor in 330 days of annual sunshine, challenging courses designed by the world’s top architects and unparalleled service and course conditions, and you have a better understanding of what Scottsdale offers avid golfers. Oh yes and don’t forget that two PGA TOUR events (the FBR Open at the TPC and the Open at Grayhawk) play there and that Scottsdale has a mayor that supports all things golf.

Scottsdale Mayor Mary Manross was first elected to office in June 2000. Manross, a non-partisan Democrat, is currently serving her second term and is a candidate for her third term as mayor in tomorrow’s runoff mayoral election.
