MARANA - From grooming to setting up tents, crews at Dove Mountain are working on the final touches to get ready for today's opening day of Accenture Match Play Championship.
"On our golf course we start preparations 60 to 75 days in advance for this event. Were making sure that the conditions are good as possibly we can get them," Jeff McCormick said.
Officials from the town of Marana say they expect all preparations for this event to run smoothly.
"We are very confident that everything is going to go well. We really haven't had a whole lot of problems in four years of the event. We know there are going to be large crowds there and were always prepared for that," Rodney Campbell said.
And if the weather does take a turn, officials say they'll do whatever it takes to make it work.
