OB SPORTS GOLF & LEISURE x FALL 2018 x obsports.com l IN THE NEWS MODERN ATTRACTION n PAPAGO GOLF COURSE UNVEILS NEW CLUBHOUSE AND PRACTICE FACILITY BY‚ÄąGreG Ball P apago Golf Course in northeast Phoenix has long been considered one of Arizona's pre- mier public courses, and this fall the old fa- vorite will be unveiling some major upgrades with the opening of a new clubhouse and a practice facility that's been touted as second to none. Locals and visitors alike have been teeing it up on the Billy Bell-designed layout since it opened in 1963, but the challenging track, which plays 7,333 yards from the tips, was always its main selling point, as the practice area was somewhat pedestrian and there hadn't been a permanent clubhouse in over a decade. That will all change this fall. The new, state-of-the-art Lou Grubb clubhouse had a soft opening in late September that will be fol- lowed by a grand opening celebration in December. Meanwhile, the practice facility is scheduled to open to golfers sometime in mid-to-late November. >>> The clubhouse is named after its benefactor.
