General tickets are now on sale for the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship, giving fans ample time and opportunity to ensure they have a front-row seat to the February 2012 event. Tickets purchased in advance offer significant savings over gate prices when the top 64 players in the world of golf return to The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club, Dove Mountain, February 20-26.
“The Accenture Match Play Championship is a limited-attendance event,” said Gerald Goodman, executive director. “What we want fans to understand is that since this is such a unique format – we start with 32 matches on Wednesday and end up with a thrilling, head-to-head championship on Sunday afternoon – we limit the number of tickets available in order to ensure the best experience for our fans. You can get so close to the action throughout the week, but we encourage everyone to get their tickets now to guarantee they’re a part of what is sure to be an incredible tournament.”
“New in 2012, fans are permitted to bring their cell phones to the tournament”.
In his first year as executive director, Goodman has announced that the event will debut a new general parking lot, located at the base of Dove Mountain Boulevard and Tangerine. Fans will have only a 10-minute shuttle ride to the tournament, compared to the 30-minute shuttle from the previous lot, which was on Tangerine closer to I-10.
Also new in 2012 for the Accenture Match Play Championship, fans are permitted to bring their cell phones to the tournament. Calls are only permitted in designated areas; no video recording at any time; and no photographs after Tuesday.
As has been the case in years past, youth 18 and younger are admitted free to the Accenture Match Play Championship when accompanied by a ticketed adult. Additionally, complimentary tickets are available for all active, retired and reserve military and their dependents.
