Fun course

First time playing this course. Took my almost 70 year old dad. He had a great time but said it’s about 4 holes too long for him, lol. He also has COPD so take that into consideration. It took us about 4-41/2 hours to complete the course, but we took a lot of breaks. Friendly staff all the way around. We booked on GolfNow and got a pretty fair price. I would recommend to anyone.

El Rio is garbage

Don't play here unless you like your water hazards to be raw sewage. Cart needed to be bump started around hole 15. The beverage cart doesn't take plastic (but the young lady seemed nice enough). Driving range is light years from the clubhouse & you have to get your bucket from the clubhouse then schlep them all the way back to the range to use them.

February play

Fairways were weak, but greens and around the greens were good for the time of year.

Windy weather
Used cart

Older city course.

I played after Tucson had several days of rain, so the course was not in the best of condition. This course needs improvement and could be a better venue if money was put in to improve it. Not the longest course, but can play tough with small greens surrounded by many traps. Worth playing if the price is right.

O.B. Sports seems to 'get it'.

Second day ,after opening for overseeding, course was in great shape. ( Still somewhat shaggy, especially the tee boxes, but expected. ) Old style course ( par 70 ), pretty flat, with lots of mature trees. ( they really don't come into play...or shouldn't.) We were first off ( 6:16 ), and managed a 3 hour round. Pretty good for a foursome. I play this course , maybe, once a year...but it's still fun, especially now that O.B.Sports keeps it in stellar shape.

A golf day with my daughter.

My daughter and I always look for an opportunity to spend a father-daughter good quality time together.The activity may vary from walking the dogs to traveling together. This weekend we decided to go for a round of golf together. She is fifteen, then I assumed that she would not be very excited about it, but we decided to go anyways, and I could see how she was getting interested in the game and actually started enjoying it. The weather was perfect, hot, but a soft breeze was making it kind of tolerable. We got to El Rio golf course 30 minutes before our tee time. The staff was so kind take us through the check in process in no time. We played 18 holes at our on pace, nobody to push us around or to wait for a long period of time. The greens were in a very decent shape and the girl withe refreshments was always very opportune. Thanks to the staff for keeping the facilities in very good shape.
