Hot deal for $23. Greens were slow compared to other courses I played on this trip. Fairways were in good condition. Rough was spongy with new and dying grass. Carts allowed on holes except #1. Good solid course.

Thank you for your review. Cañada has certainly improved this year. Conquistador will open on the 27th of this month from overseed and is looking better than ever. Be sure to come back when both are open.

Very disappointed in conditions of course as I had called ahead to find out if the course was being scalped prior to overseeding. I was told no, they don't do that. However, I wasn't told that because they were going to be overseeding the course that it was very dried out. I was told it was in good shape and I didn't feel it was. Had we known, I would have waited to play it another time. Pace of play was really bad. Over 4 1/2 hours and even being paired with another 2some, we waited on every hole. As far as the course, every green was elevated, which was very hard to figure out where the hole was. Had lunch in the restaurant and the bread for our sandwich was dried out. Again, a disappointing day of golf.

Troon has done a great job here.

The greens on the Conquistador side.were as good as I've seen in Tucson

Still need work on the fairways but all in all this is the best shape it's been in for years.

I say this begrudgingly 'cause this course always kick's my butt and did so again.

We have played this course before and usually enjoy it.

Greens in good shape and rolled fairly true with average speed. Fairways and rough were generally in very good shape. Pace of play was excellent (3 1/2 hours). All staff we met were very friendly and accommodating. Free balls at driving range for warm up. Sand traps a little rough but definitely playable.

Greens are in great shape. Everything else is below average. Fairways are spotty with several area of dead grass or no grass. Tee boxes are uneven with areas devoid of grass. Cart paths need to be replaced. Practice tee area needs grass and the practice balls need entire stock replaced. Otherwise the staff was very friendly and accommodating.

This course at one time was enjoyable to play. It now needs many improvements to make it an attraction for serious golfers to want to play it again.

Golf course, was average…fairways were rough, a ton of crab grass. Greens were good.

Overall appearance was poor, needs more attention to landscape and frways .

Staff was very friendly, golf personal out front very nice. Would not recommend to friends…my playing partner that I was paired with was abousulety the best part…u always meet new friends on the golf course.
