Good course... getting better

The recent Monsoon rains have finally gotten the grass growing and the fairways are much more playable. One tip for the grounds crew... MORE GRASS! Scalped fairways are a joke and if it does not rain then WATER the course!

Other than that little rant the golf experience here is mostly positive.

Great AZ Course

I was in the area on business and luckily was able to get in a round. I was hesitant not knowing the area or the courses. The staff was great and the course fun. Only complaint was the course could have better signage. I got lost around 10th hole which slowed down my round.

Average course at best

I would like to give this course a better review, but the lack of any grass on the fairways stops that. To many times I hit right into the center of a fairway only to play my next shot off the bare ground.

A decent course that is getting better...

My first time playing here and frankly I was pleasantly surprised given some of the very negative reviews that have been posted recently.

Yes, the fairways are scalped and thin in places as Tucson awaits the start of the Monsoon but once the rains commence... any day now hopefully, the course should thicken up nicely.

The greens are decent and the many, many, many blind shots will challenge you, especially the first time you play here. The beverage gal came around on a regular basis and the entire staff was pleasant.

Despite being a first timer and largely thanks to the local knowledge my playing partner shared I managed to shoot my handicap and think I can do better. I'll be back!

Great Time Great View

El Conquistador is a great course to play. It is set close to the mountains but still plays pretty level. There is two separate courses but I played the more challenging one, La Canada. There are some holes that change in elevation which adds to the difficulty just enough to make things interesting. I would recommend it regardless of skill level.

Bad course

Course is in bad shape. Fairways are either burnt and patchy or bare and muddy. Greens are very bumpy and slow. No course map which, combined with many blind tee shots, became very frustrating after a few holes. The course doesn't go past the clubhouse at any point in the round except at 1 tee and 18 green. No food or beverage service during play. There was drinking water in coolers every few holes but the water was air temp and on a day with the temp over 100 degrees, that's not too appealing.

Very disappointed.
