With well over 200 golf courses in the Phoenix-Scottsdale metro area, the "Valley of the Sun" is certainly a candidate for the winter golf trip capital of the United States. Just catch a glimpse the PGA Tour's Waste Management Phoenix Open on TV, held on the Stadium Course at TPC Scottsdale each January, to see just how much locals love their golf. Phoenix-Scottsdale has a wide array of courses of varying styles, including some standouts with astonishing scenery.
No golf course architect has a presence on both the PGA Tour schedule and Top 100 rankings quite like Pete Dye. His designs set the bar for innovation, creativity and challenge. No other living designer has more respect from his peers. While Dye's courses like TPC Sawgrass, Harbour Town, Kiawah Island and Whistling Straits are all fixtures of televised golf, there are many other Dye designs that are not only publicly accessible, but even affordable.
Orlando has no such thing as an "off-season." In the United States, only Las Vegas has more hotel rooms than Orlando, and only Phoenix-Scottsdale has more course reviews on Golf Advisor. Central Florida locals jostle with droves of visitors over coveted tee times at top public and resort courses near Walt Disney World, Universal Studios or the Orange County Convention Center. Or, they ditch the crowds and resort green fees and head off the beaten path towards Clermont or Ocala or Lakeland.
@bruin@GolfAdvisor This article cites a stat from NGF: 36% of golfers are millennials (4 million of which only play at "non-course" facilities like @TopGolf). Our userbase was 23% under age 34. I don't think golf demo will ever mirror overall population as long as retirees have more time and $$.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
