Loved the layout and design.

Greens were like an 8 on the stimp.

I am guessing they don't cut greens on the weekend.

I will give this course another try, and hope the greens are cut.

Teed off 20 min late. Course is SHORT and slightly narrow. Greens are VERY slow. This course is definitely perfect for those 50 and older. Does have some character to it which is the only thing that made it enjoyable. Course layout is horrible, the architect should've just designed it from clubhouse to hotel that would've been convenient. Nothing here that makes you want to come back if you're just visiting like I was.

Enjoyed the round. There was slow play as I usually shoot towards a 4 hr round. I thought the course was changeling and definitely not a flat course. It made me consider a little more than usual which club to use. Lots of fun, go play and enjoy.

Enjoyed my time at El Conquistador....I was a single that was booked with 2 others. When I arrived, they had sent that group with another 2. Was told I might have to play alone, which is no fun. Ended up with another couple who knew the course well....made it more enjoyable. Greens were in great shape, a little slow, but not bad at all....3 of the 4 par 3's measured more than 170yds which provided a bit of a challenge. Would certainly play again.

This course was in fair condition but some of the holes on this course are just gimmicky. I hit a perfect drive on one hole and it rolled into the rough because of the drastic slope in the fairway. Pace of play was slow and they had no marshals. Group in front of us were playing the back tees and they were all over the place. Some of them couldn't hit the ball 150 yards. I shot a good score but it was a frustrating round of golf.

At first glance, it seems that this is a classy, well run course-until you actually get to the first tee. Our first impression of how things were going to be was when the starter gave us instructions as to the layout of the course-the course doesn't bring you back to the clubhouse after 9 holes. No snack bar anywhere- and no beverage cart. Water was not provided at the start and there were only a few water coolers on the course. Good thing we brought enough water and snacks with us! Not once did we see any course host/marshall during our round. Directions to the next hole were poor or non- existent-very frustrating! The club could spend a little and put up signs instead of painting (faded) little arrows to the next tee. And the greens were awful -long and bumpy. The views were very nice, so if that's really important to you, go for a nice hike instead.

Free range balls is always a plus, though you are hitting off of a mat. Nice putting green and separate chipping area. The course was in good condition and the only complaint would be shaggy greens, which made them pretty slow. Very enjoyable day and I will go back and play.

The course was in great shape: greens especially, as well as fairways and bunkers (they actually had sand in them! A rarity on many public courses in the midwest where I normally play.) Best of all we finished in 3 1/2 hours!!! I felt like this was a good value for snowbird golf season in Tucson.
