Arizona Rattlers revamp "Rattlers Den" for 2015 Waste Management Phoenix Open

Thursday January 8, 2015

 Re-design features two story VIP deck

Phoenix, Ariz. – The five-time ArenaBowl champion Arizona Rattlers announce the "Rattlers Den" will return for the fourth-consecutive year to the 2015 Waste Management Phoenix Open with a re-designed two story VIP viewing area.

The "Rattlers Den," for the first time, will feature a double-decker viewing area for VIP guests and media. The second-story view will allow guests to see the #1 tee, #2 green, #3 tee and #9 green. A staircase connecting the Den to the #1 tee grandstands has been added to this year's layout. The VIP area will also boast television screens for fans to watch the tournament and their own exclusive viewing area of the golfers as they pass by the "Rattlers Den" on the course.

The Den is also open to the public and will consist of a 100-by-50-foot field that will be branded with the team logo and signage around the field. The area will have both seated and standing areas for fans to watch the tournament while mingling with Rattlers players, coaches and Sidewinders dance team members in attendance. A concessions area will be available for fans to purchase food and drink items that are named to reflect fun facts about the Rattlers.

"We are excited to continue to grow the Arizona Rattlers brand as a part of one of the premier sporting events in Arizona," said Ron Shurts, Rattlers owner. "Our organization is proud to support the Waste Management Phoenix Open and looks forward to continuing our efforts to unite the fans of the Phoenix sports community."

Shurts is also involved with the event's annual Pro-Am which will be presented by the Annexus Group, one of Shurts' business ventures. The Annexus Pro-Am is scheduled for Wednesday, January 28 on the TPC Stadium Course.
