TIU4ALL and the UArizona Adaptive Golf program are proud to announce that both Kevin Holland and Norma Trujillo have joined our community golf programs with the intent of qualifying for our competitive team in the near future. Both Kevin and Norma personify the goals of TIU4ALL in building the most competitive collegiate and community program in the US today. Here’s a little info on our two newest members:
My name is Norma Trujillo and I am a mother of 3 and an artist. I am also certificated as a lead advocate for the state of Arizona, with a peer visitor certificate. I am a bilateral above the knee amputee, with a fused neck, an incomplete spinal cord and 3rd degree burns. After four years, I have come across the sport of golf and have fallen in love with everything golf!
When am not playing, I create some art pieces, hang out with my kids and husband, and I work with local leaders to advocate for disability awareness. Additional interests include: hand cycling, community walking with other amputees and participating in virtual support meetings.
The latest news on Norma is that she had a major interview on ABC that will air on Sunday May 9. Here’s the link:
We can’t begin to tell you how proud TIU4ALL and the UArizona Adaptive Golf team is to have this brave woman in our program….she’s an inspiration, she’s a competitor, and most importantly, she is FEARLESS!!! Norma will develop into a great golfer, sooner than you will believe!!!
Born December 24 1982 Born from birth with cerebral palsy Playing in my 4th season on the us amateur tour in 2020 I had 3 tournament wins and won the points race for my flight . Took 3rd in the 2019 usdga international tournament . Also in 2019 the mwaga all disabled open second place in wr4dg . 2019 in the usdga for division three champ .
The inaugural Conquistador Paragolf Championships is officially in the books! We had a great competition, great golf in arguably rough conditions (great weather but 30-40 mph winds all three days), but most importantly we were all able to get back on the golf course together. It was great to see all of our fellow competitors/friends for the first time in over a year.
From all of us at TIU4ALL, we want to thank each and every one of you who came to Tucson this year. The week was a resounding success and gave us the start for an ongoing annual celebration of adaptive golf. Can’t wait to see you all in Mesa for the USDGA Open next month!!Conq

Spring Golf Events to Showcase Adaptive Athletics and Welcome World’s Top-Ranked Adaptive Golfers
Tucson, Ariz. (March 28, 2021) – The University of Arizona’s Adaptive Golf program, the first and largest in national collegiate sports that showcases the talents of golfers with disabilities, will host two events in April and is inviting the golfing community to participate and sponsor one or both. The proceeds from these events will provide much-needed funding to grow adaptive golf throughout Southern Arizona and provide these student athletes the support and benefits that the game of golf provides.
The first event, the 2021 TeeItUp Spring Shootout, will be held on Monday, April 19 at the Omni Tucson National Resort. This 18-hole scramble will feature a fundraising event where Southern Arizona golfing enthusiasts can sponsor traditional foursomes, threesomes with one adaptive golf athlete, or engage in other associated activities and programs. This tournament will benefit University of Arizona Adaptive Athletics.
The second event, the Conquistador Paragolf Championship, will kick off on Tuesday, April 20 at Sewailo Golf Club at Casino del Sol and will conclude on Thursday, April 22. Members of the University of Arizona’s Adaptive Golf team will participate in this event along with more than forty of the top world-ranked adaptive golfers including Billy Fryar, Jonathan Snyder, Tracy Ramin, John Bell, Steve Shipulski, Chris Biggins, and Sean Munn. The tournament will feature a variety of exciting prizes such as equipment and golf wear from sponsors/preferred providers such as Cobra/Puma, Vice Golf, Desert Fox, Sqairz Golf Shoes, Ping, and Nike. This tournament will benefit the University of Arizona Adaptive Golf team as well as other adaptive golf initiatives in Southern Arizona.
“We are excited to be hosting these stellar events for both our golfing community at large and for our adaptive athletes from the University of Arizona and from around the world,” stated Jon Moore, managing director, TIU4ALL. “Our community has a proud history of strong support for such events, and together with our world-class golf courses and nearly-perfect, year-round weather, these events will raise much-needed funding as well as the profiles of our athletes and ultimately help us in making Tucson the epicenter of adaptive golf worldwide,” Moore concluded.

Only 25 days left until The Conquistador Paragolf and we still have a few registrations left to fill out this field. Our host course, Sewailo Golf Club, is in excellent shape and the greens are probably the best they’ve been in the last few years. We will officially shut down registrations on 4/5/2021 so we can make sure we have plenty of time to cover prizes, swag, and event needs. Get in now on not only the first event of the season but what is shaping up to be the best golf experience ever.
For all of our seated golfers, all of our available SoloRiders are now spoken for but we can still assist on potentially finding some solutions for you (no guarantees).
Our registration block for rooms at Casino del Sol has come and gone, but you still may be able to book rooms, albeit at the prevailing rate for those dates. We still have rooms available at the DoubleTree Tucson Airport for those of you still needing to book accommodations. The rate is $99 and can be reserved until 4/15/2021. Please be aware that there is no shuttle service between DoubleTree and the golf course, so if you don’t have a car or can’t hitch a ride with another golfer, Uber is your best bet (approx. $20).
The welcome reception will be held after the first round on Tuesday 4/20 (6:30 pm) at Trak Tucson. Trak is one of the many working equestrian facilities located within the city limits and is perfectly suited for an outdoor event that showcases the best of what Tucson really is.
Highlighting the event will be live music by KTKlassics and a tremendous spread by our partners and supporters at FireTruck Brewery. FireTruck will be setting up in a served buffet style and will be bringing out many of their custom brews for your enjoyment (soda/ice teas available as well). Although our spread will be “off menu”, you can check out their offerings here.
