The course was in good shape. Harder and prettier than I remembered. Elevated greens presented a challenge in club selection. Would definitely recommend and will get my revenge next time I play there

played this course many times,enjoyable round.

however, it did take me a couple of rounds to dial back my shots on certain holes for shots. scores are better with 3 wood for precision placement. hard to leave the the big dog in the bag sometimes distance is not the advantage. best to play with someone who has play here before.

The course is in good shape, but of the last 6 times we have played the Conquistador courses, we have had cart problems on 3 of them. Twice the battery died and we had to have them bring out another cart; the 3rd time we were able to get back by having my wife get out and walk and hoping! This is not good! Our playing partners had to have their cart changed (mid-round) due to a flat tire.

I've only played the Conquistador course one other time in recent years and I think I prefer their Canada course. The fairways were good but areas around the greens were wet with either bare or tufted grass. The greens were good and rolled well. A half way house would be nice, since you do not return to the clubhouse after the front nine. I'll probably go back, but try to play the Canada course next time.

All holes are unique and challenging. Putting requires a little local knowledge because many putts break differently than you would read. It's a fun course, but requires skill sets that beginners won't have.

I recently played the El Conquistador Course at the Oro Valley El Conquistador golf complex.

Course conditions were outstanding!

The greens were smooth and true and the fairways were like carpet!

Will definitely return and recommend it to friends.
