World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship returns to the Ritz-Carlton Dove Mountain on February 20-26, 2012. With tickets starting at just $25 and each of your kids 18 and under being admitted FREE of charge when accompanied by a paid ticketed adult, it’s more exciting than ever to attend this years tournament. Low ticket prices and a host of fan-friendly changes will make every golf enthusiast want to attend.
Parking is better than ever!
Public parking is now at the base of Dove Mountain Blvd. and Tangerine Rd on the NW corner. Park your vehicle, and in your excitement to see Rory, don’t forget your car keys!
After parking, a quick hop onto the shuttle lets you enjoy the scenery to the top of the mountain to the main entrance gate. Voila, you have arrived and are ready to watch the best players in the world compete for the $8.5 million dollar purse while you experience the best in golf and networking around town.
If you are a spectator with a disability, drive up the mountain to the T2 lot and take the shuttle ride to the front gate. Just make sure you don’t leave home without that handicapped license plate or hang tag.
Bring your cell phone!
We know it is hard to believe, but you can now bring your personal mobile device on the grounds of the tournament. Just don’t let caddie Stevie Williams catch you chatting. He might rip that baby out of your hand and throw it in the desert.
Practice good golf etiquette and respect by keeping your phone on silent at all times and do not take a picture unless it is Monday or Tuesday of the practice round days.
Follow the Leaders!
During the Championship Match on Sunday, tournament officials will allow fans an opportunity to fill in the fairway behind the two players who are going head-to-head to decide the Accenture Match Play Championship winner. Talk about exciting!
