The Accenture Match Play Championship golf tournament took place here in 2008. All 36 greens are 100% SR bentgrass.
In summer 2009, the 18 North Course greens were renovated and Superintendent Paul Ellwood took the opportunity to update the bentgrass on these greens, to better handle the shaded and cooler conditions in the canyons of the course. Paul direct-seeded a custom Dominant formula (50% 007 + 25% SR1119 + 25% Brighton). The green are showing exceptional winter color and active growth.
The John Fought designed South Course, with excellent views across the open desert to the nearby city of Tucson, winds down through lower native desert and was planted in 2003, using Dominant Southern Creeping Bentgrass Blend (Brighton + SR1119) on the 18 greens.
