When it came time for the Pascua Yaqui Tribe to design their own golf course, they knew they wanted a unique creation. One that would work within the land and honor its natural gifts and wonders. The Tribe hired fellow Native American, Notah Begay III, a Navajo and Pueblo who has made his name both as a player on the PGA Tour and as a commentator on NBC and The Golf Channel. Along with Ty Butler, Begay responded with the amazing Sewailo, or “Land Where Flowers Grow” in the native Yaqui language.
Blending the natural Sonoran Desert landscape with picturesque lakes and streams, Sewailo measures over 7,400 yards from the championship tees, with five different tee boxes on each hole to allow for players of all abilities. It is universally recognized as one of the premier golf experiences in Arizona, public or private, and is home to the University of Arizona Men’s & Women’s golf teams.
