It’s one of the year’s biggest events held in the Tucson region, and for at least this year, Marana is hosting the Accenture Match Play Championship on the greens at Dove Mountain.

However, even as professionals greeted fans and got things going Monday, the question many are asking - Will it be back next year?

Accenture at least remains in Marana for now, but the current contract expires after the tournament is over on Sunday.

The tournament first came to Marana in 2007.

While plenty of big names are turning out for this year’s event, which is already under way, one big name canceled about a week before competition began. Tigers Woods opted out of this year’s competition with plans to prepare for three tournaments in Florida. 

On Monday, bus loads of fans came out to Dove Mountain professionals took to the greens for practice rounds.

Practice rounds continued on Tuesday, and competition begins Wednesday between 7:25 a.m. and 12:35 p.m.

Matches will continue through Sunday. Visit The Explorer website at www.explorernews.com for daily updates.

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.
