Fact Checked by Evans Roy

A group of local VIPs, including a highly decorated Pro Bowl wide receiver and several government officials, congregated at a sports field oasis on Thursday afternoon to unveil the latest retail Arizona sports betting offering from DraftKings.

The guests at the TPC Scottsdale golf course observed the typical first day festivities, including a ceremonial ribbon-cutting with the Boston operator’s logo. Notable figures like former Arizona Cardinals player Larry Fitzgerald, a future NFL Hall of Famer, placed the first bets of the day alongside other prominent speakers.

DraftKings Project Took 17 Months to Complete

After a 17-month journey, DraftKings Arizona Sportsbook concluded by opening its inaugural retail sportsbook at a PGA host location. This marked the end of the odyssey that started at the intersection of Bell and the Greenway-Hayden Loop.

During the opening ceremony on Thursday, each speaker skillfully conveyed the significance of the event, with former NFL lineman and ESPN personality Mike Golic Sr. eloquently articulating the shared purpose that united everyone in attendance as the emcee.

Golic informed the audience that this would serve as a fantastic meeting place for golfers, tourists, and individuals from all over the nation.

What can be found at the Retail DraftKings Arizona Sportsbook?

The TPC Scottsdale project is the latest addition to the array of on-site betting options available in the state, which also includes online operators such as go-casinoing offering Arizona sportsbook promo codes.

When you walk into the main entrance of the TPC at Scottsdale sportsbook, you will immediately notice the striking wall-to-wall LED boards displaying a range of sporting events. These boards are a key marketing tool for the operator, particularly when there are no live games on.

A spacious bar with cozy booths and tables offering a variety of food and drink choices is located to the right, while the retail betting station is ready for use on the left side.

The sportsbook interior features a sleek, futuristic design that sharply contrasts with the almost retro mid-century modern style of the exterior, which is adorned with trimmed palm trees against light brick walls.

The facility is adorned with green LED lights, a nod to DraftKings’ signature color scheme, showcasing the company’s branding, including its Arizona sports betting apps. Guests can relax on the expansive patio and soak in the pleasant Arizona fall weather.

PGA Tour Responds to Sports Betting Integration

Scott Warfield eloquently captured the importance of opening the inaugural sportsbook facility near the clubhouse of the venue that hosts “The People’s Open.”

Warfield, the vice president of gaming for the tour, said that selecting TPC at Scottsdale as the PGA’s first retail sportsbook was a clear choice. Construction of the sportsbook at TPC Scottsdale started in December. Warfield added that DraftKings is the perfect partner to run this facility.

The Scottsdale facility’s potential was evident on a clear early autumn day, with the sun shining brightly and enhancing the coliseum-style course just as local officials and PGA Tour executives had envisioned when Arizona sports betting launched in September 2021.

Warfield emphasized that the new facility is in line with Scottsdale and Arizona’s esteemed reputation as a top destination, and will help the PGA Tour enhance its economic, tourism, and charitable impact on the state.
