Located around 30 minutes from Tucson, the Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain is a luxury base for an exploration of this south western golfing paradise. Top class accommodation is matched by preferential access to the Dove Mountain Golf Course, home of the Accenture Match Play Championship.
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.
Overlooking the beautiful outdoor areas, the guest rooms and suites at the Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain are the epitome of luxury, bedecked in high class touches and complete with all the amenities expected of a five star destination. These include plush terry robes, telephones and internet access, a mini-bar, complimentary newspapers and deluxe marble bathrooms.
Hike in the natural resort surroundings, or if that's too energetic, retreat to The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Dove Mountain, where the unique environment creates an amazing setting for complete relaxation.
Among the amazing myriad of dining options at the resort are the Core Kitchen, serving classical American cuisine, and Ignite, where the south western gastro pub style menu is complemented by amazing cocktails.
