Ritz Carlton Golf Club

Ritz Carlton Golf Course

The Ritz Carlton Golf Course is hosting the Accenture World Match play for the second time in February 2010. The worlds top 64 players will gather at the course which was designed by Jack Nicklaus and the Accenture World Match Play will be permanently located at the Ritz Carlton Golf Club in Dove Mountain Arizona having made its debut in the event in 2009 when Geoff Ogilvy picked up the trophy.. The club is set over a 45,000 square foot complex and was built with 'green' technology with the idea of preserving the lushness of the surrounding desert in Arizona.

The course will be a par 72 and will total 7833 yards for the World Match Play Championship. The course was designed specifically with the World Match Play in mind so will test the professionals as well as offering some birdie opportunities along the way. The New complex was opened in mid January of 2009 and features a luxury 50,000 square foot Clubhouse offering the players luxury surroundings.

For the 2010 World Match Play golf the Ritz Carlton uses two of its three courses to make up the 18 holes needed, the front nine during the tournament will be the Saguaro Course while the back nine will be the Tortolita Course. It is felt that those two courses compliment each other perfectly and offer the blend of birdie opportunities as well as a challenge.
