Surrounded by spectacular mountains and managed by Troon Golf, Whirlwind Golf Club is designed to preserve the rich cultural heritage of the Gila River Indian Community. NIA’s Golf Tournament on Friday, March 31, will be held at the Devil's Claw golf course located at the Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass.
Developed by Gary Panks, and each hole is named after a significant legend or landmark of the Pima and Maricopa Indians. This challenging course features gradual elevation changes and great bunker designs with multi-tiered greens. Only plants that are indigenous to the Gila River and its surrounding deserts are featured on the course.
The 18-hole scramble will have a 12:30 p.m. shotgun start. Gather your industry colleagues and friends for an afternoon of networking and friendly competition! Preference will be given to foursomes.* Pre-registration is required and the per-player fee of $230 includes all tournament costs, a boxed lunch, GPS golf cart, prizes, and golf-bag pickup and return on the day of the tournament. Optional club rentals, which includes 6 golf balls, are available through the golf course for $60, plus tax, and will be billed by the course to your hotel reservation the day of the tournament. NIA’s Golf Tournament is very popular and spaces are limited, so we encourage you to sign up early.
*If you wish to create your own foursome, please contact the players to ensure their willingness to participate in the foursome, and then email your request to NIA at firstname.lastname@example.org. All players must be registered for both the Convention and the golf tournament.
