Sewailo Golf Club tees off at CDS Resort

Posted: Updated:
Tucson, AZ -
In the Pascua Yaqui language, the word Sewailo means "flower world" and Sewailo Golf Club at Casino Del Sol Resort exudes this sentiment at every turn with more than 30,000 native flowers, plants and cacti incorporated into this 200-acre Notah Begay III designed masterpiece.
 
Located in southwest Tucson, Casino Del Sol Resort, an enterprise of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe and the only Forbes Four Star-rated casino resort in Arizona, Sewailo Golf Club is a challenging course measuring 7,400 yards from the championship tees and featuring five different tee boxes at each hole.
 
The course's rolling velvet fairways and exquisite greens complement the nearly 14 acres of extraordinary lakes, streams and water features. Indigenous flowers and plants used in tribal ceremonies are also in abundance throughout the course and have been salvaged and replanted from the original site.
 
"Casino Del Sol Resort is an extraordinary destination on its own. With the addition of Sewailo Golf Club, we've introduced the perfect complement to our award-winning property," said Jim Burns, CEO of Casino Del Sol Resort. "We're proud to now offer guests and locals alike a round of world-class golf as part of their experience."
 
Opting to work within the native landscape and incorporate existing resources, Casino Del Sol Resort and the Pascua Yaqui Tribe tapped Native American Notah Begay III for his expertise. A player on the PGA Tour, Golf Channel commentator and renowned golf course architect, Begay carefully carved Sewailo out of the high Sonoran Desert, resulting in one of the most remarkable courses in the Southwest.
 
"The opening of Sewailo is a great achievement for the Pascua Yaqui Tribe and Casino Del Sol Resort. The Tribe is pleased to bring a golf course to the Tucson community that reflects the beauty and spirit of the land, and continues the traditions of sharing gifts with everyone," said Councilman, John Escalante of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe.
 
Additional course amenities include an extensive driving range, practice areas for chipping and putting, Callaway Golf equipment rentals and instructional programs. Managing the course will be Troon Golf – the undisputed worldwide leader in top-shelf golf experiences.
 
Sewailo Golf Club is open to casino resort guests and the general public, and tee times can be scheduled by visiting www.sewailogolfclub.com or calling 520-838-6623.
