Among the very best of Arizona golf is the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club at Dove Mountain, where guests of the Ritz-Carlton, Phoenix enjoy preferential rates and access. Home to the Accenture Match Play Championship, Dove Mountain saw Ian Poulter score his biggest achievement to date with victory in the 2010 event.
The stunning desert layout was conceived by Jack Nicklaus, and is a splendid championship experience that takes in views of the towering Tortolita Mountain range.
The 27-hole complex is formed of three distinct nine-hole loops named the Saguaro, Tortolito and Wild Burro, each of which can be combined to form par-72 layouts that can stretch close to the 8,000 yard mark! The everyday tees, however, are far more manageable, and will offer up first class holiday golf that will be a sure highlight of an escape to Dove Mountain.
2014 WGC-Accenture Match Play
Jason Day survived an incredible fightback from Victor Dubuisson to claim his first World Golf Championship title. The Australian was two up with two to play in the final, before some inspired golf from the Frenchman (including some near impossible chip shots) saw the match extended to a 23rd hole until Day secured the title with a birdie. Meanwhile, Ricky Fowler downed Ernie Els in the third place match having defeated Ian Poulter, Jimmy Walker, Sergio Garcia and Jim Furyk in the early rounds.
