• A local golf course is raising money for Phoenix Children’s Hospital. Troon’s Helicopter Golf Ball Drop takes place Nov. 17 at Troon North Golf Club in Scottsdale. Participants can buy a golf ball for $10 and drop it from a copter. The ball that goes into the hole or comes closest to the pin wins $1,000 for its “dropper.” Proceeds will go to the hospital.
