Tucson is one of American golf’s more special “undiscovered destinations". Casino Del Sol Resort, Spa and Conference Center is a hidden gem nestled in the secluded mesquites of the serene high Sonoran Desert, just 15 minutes from Tucson International Airport and downtown Tucson. IT IS THE ONLY CASINO RESORT IN ARIZONA TO HAVE EARNED A FORBES FOUR STAR AWARD, AS WELL AS A AAA FOUR DIAMOND AWARD. Rising 10 stories above the Tucson desert, the Resort features elegant guest accommodations, luxury hotel amenities, and high energy gaming action and entertainment. The impressive 200,000 square-foot Casino Del Sol, features slots, blackjack, poker, a high-limit lounge and bingo. Also on property is the Hiapsi Spa & Fitness Center, the 5,000 seat AVA Amphitheater, more than 10 restaurants, a luxurious pool and cabanas, wireless Internet, fitness center and in-suite spa.
Adjacent to the Resort and within walking distance of the hotel sits our host course for the week... the Sewailo Golf Club, designed by PGA Tour Player and NBC golf analyst Notah Begay. (Sewailo is the home course of the University of Arizona Wildcats Men's and Women's Golf Teams). Sewailo, meaning “flower world” in the Pascua Yaqui language, blends the native landscape with picturesque lakes and streams. This challenging course measures 7,400 yards from the championship tees, with 5 different tee boxes on each hole. It is a magnificently manicured masterpiece in the desert!
Here is what a golf writer said about his experience at Sewailo: "This is a no-expense spared desert golf transformation of land, flowers and water. Picture the luxury of transformation that a Donald Trump or Steve Wynn might create for the golfing piece of their casino offerings and you begin to envision the scope of Sewailo".
The Tommy Thomas Pro-Am has enjoyed a unique partnership with this wonderful resort since December 2015, and we continue to be so excited to "share" Casino Del Sol and Sewailo GC with North America! The word is officially out... Casino Del Sol has arrived!
