Golfers and tennis players can "swing for the arts" Friday, June 19, when the Greater Oro Valley Arts Council puts on fund-raising tournaments at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club at Dove Mountain.

"Help us preserve the arts," said GOVAC, the non-profit organization that presents events, festivals and programs, supports students, artists and arts advancement, and educates through programs and partnerships.

The tournament gives people a chance to play at the new Ritz-Carlton Dove Mountain facilities, site of the 2009 World Golf Championships Accenture Match Play championship. The Jack Nicklaus Signature course tucks into the Tortolita Mountains.

The best-ball golf tournament is a 7:30 a.m. shotgun start. Entries are $150 per individual and $525 for a foursome that covers a barbecue lunch, cart fees, a goodie bag and greens fees.

Mixed doubles, round-robin tennis gets going at 9 a.m. Entries are $60 for an individual and $100 for doubles teams, with lunch, a goodie bag and tennis fees covered.

Signature sponsorships are also available.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
