Troon, the leader in upscale golf course management, development and marketing has announced it has been selected by the Pascua Yaqui Tribe to manage Sewailo Golf Club at Casino Del Sol Resort near Tucson, Ariz.

The golf course, named “Sewailo,” meaning “flower world” in the Yaqui language, is scheduled to open in 2013. The championship-style course, designed by Ty Butler and Notah Begay III, will resemble a desert oasis with impressive water features incorporated into the surrounding landscape.
