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.

New management has certainly improved the Canada course greatly over the past year. I was surprised to see how well the course has grown in. Its summer conditions are extremely competitive with the best Tucson has to offer right now.

The course is challenging, utilizing great elevation changes and narrow fairways to make a rather short course from the black tees, play difficult. I always recommend first time players to move up a full 300 yards from their normal distance, as the fairways are very tight, and have desert hazard all around, meaning that driver (or even 3 wood) is often not the best club off the tee to attack the pins. The greens are very fair.

Range Balls are included with the greens fees, making this a great value. Especially if combined with one of the many Restaurant combos now offered through the summer.

Pace of play is fantastic, if not too fast. My threesome finished in 3:25, and was passed by 2 twosomes.

There are lots of water stations on the course for you to refill a water bottle or cup, though restrooms on the back nine are only on the way to 10 and the 15th tee.

Sadly, this is not a walking course. But it sure is a fun course to play with some great spots to take some pictures of the Catalinas.

The only draw back was no cart girl and having to buy a yardage book since the score card didn't have any pictures of the holes. The course was in great shape and the greens where a little slow but consistent.

This was my second time playing the Canada course, and I definitely prefer the Conquistador course. The Canada course is less-than-attractive at its lowest elevations (e.g. old fences, sandy washes) and it includes a number of uphill holes to raised greens that I don't really enjoy. But with all that said, I played 18 holes in 3 hours and the price was very reasonable. One added benefit, the practice facilities are excellent, and are included with your greens fee.
