Great challenge with many of the holes and several of the others are quite easy. Love the 9th hole! The 10th is one of the toughest holes I've ever played if the pin is back left. 5th hole??? I'm still not sure how to best deal with it!?

Slow play kills golf

GREAT golf venue, course conditions and staff! The downside is a 4 hour round turned out to be 5 hours. No marshall process to maintain pace of play. I’m not sure if it is worth the 30 minute drive.

Jewel of Tucson

A magnificent piece of southern Arizona. The Pascua-Yaqui nation has done justice to honor this land by creating a desert oasis complete with waterfalls, lakes and running creeks. And not in a unnatural fashion. The course is challenging and diverse. Beautiful vistas abound. Loved it.

Greens were outstanding! Fairways were mostly good especially for this time of year without any rain. There were a few bare spots but nothing to detract from the overall condition.

Fantastic layout and great greens!

Sewailo is always a treat to play and the course was in excellent shape, especially for mid-summer. Some of the best greens in Southern Az....they were rolling perfectly and approach shots were stopping on a dime. The staff is always super friendly and there are plenty of amenities on the course. A great Sunday of golf!

Lots of bunkers

This is definitely a target course unless you like to hit your ball into bunkers. Sand bunkers everywhere. The course is in great shape except for the bunkers which are really hard packed sand. We were only able to play 9 holes due to lightning. They did give us a rain check for 9 holes. The people in the golf shop and golfnow had a mix up as to tee times. Next time I play there I will call the course to verify tee times.

First Timer

6-21-18 First thing I noticed was there was no handicap parking at the course. There is a drop off but after the game, a long haul back to the car. The greeters were great and quite helpful. Carts have GPS but it always knows where you are and you can get dinged if you wander where you shouldn't. Announced pace of play is close to 15 minutes per hole which was fine for the front nine but a little low for the back nine. Tee times are 10 minutes apart. If you slow down you'll be pushed by the group behind you. Bottled water is supplied throughout the course. Had lunch in the hotel at the buffet. Excellent. Too many bunkers on the course. Water hazards are manageable but expect to lose a couple golf balls. Course is well maintained. Great staff. Green fees were competitive for Tucson in the summer.

Overall outstanding golf venue in South Tucson. The price was right using Golfnow, staff from bag drop-off, Pro Shop and starter were very customer friendly. The course was in excellent condition, layout challenging, but not overwhelming to the average golfer. Must play for golfers visiting or new to the area.

Great Shape

Sewailo was in great shape with green fairways and immaculate bent greens, and I played it in late May. Played from the jade (green) tees, and that was a good fit for my 18 handicap at 6341 yards. Hole #5 was pretty challenging, though, a 431-yard par 4 that I’ll probably never reach in 2. All the staff was very friendly and courteous, and I’ll look forward to playing this course again. It is now #2 on my Top 5 Tucson-area courses.

Warm greeting to start. 300 yd+ par 4s mixed with almost 500 yd par 4s. Short par 5, medium length par 5s then a monster 600+ par 5. What a fun and challenging mix! Conditions are excellent.

Details is Swell!

Sewailo is a beautiful course. Greens are superb with enough undulation to test even the best green readers. Tee to green on most holes is an adventure as many shots are blind. Over every hill is another adventure. Fairways are in decent shape - some dry spots with little grass but the majority of fairways ensure good lies. Water- water everywhere - again increase the challenge of this course. Slightly overpriced but fun (with a healthy dose of frustration) to play. Highly recommend every golfer to experience it!
