Fun Track

Greens in great shape. Fairways didn't look green but were soft, well watered, and in really good shape, just looked brown for some reason. Tee boxes were in great shape as well. I like this course a lot. Challenging yet playable. I will be back to play here again. Only complaint was that the driving range tee box was trash. It looked more like saw dust and dirt that it did a driving range. Other than that the course is well taken care of!

Awesome Time!

First time playing this course and had a really good time! Course was in great condition. Lots of elevated greens and undulation in the fairways. Sort of over run by seniors but place of play was still great. Practice facilities are really nice. Really nice views or the mountains from some tee boxes also. Overall a fun track. Seems like you will always have a shot and not lose balls if you miss the fairway.

About as good as it currently gets...

The course was in decent shape though the fairways will certainly benefit from the upcoming Monsoon. Fairways were pretty thin and the greens slow.

Pace of play was reasonable and the course is in good condition . The staff is friendly and allowed us to each have a cart. We chose to play here to support the City of Oro Valley and their decision to keep the course open. Thank you! BTW the views of the mountains are beautiful.

Great Day at El Con

Played a nice morning round at el conquistador today and it was great. Course was wide open, no one within 2 holes of us in front or behind. Course was in good shape. Finished in under 3 hours and enjoyed every second of it. Great to be able to enjoy this beautiful course during these tough times!

Golf Now

My issue isn’t with the.course, but when we checked in, they did not acknowledge my other 3 of the foursome even though we had proof we had all prepaid. So Golf Now has a glitch in their system that needs improvement. I’m giving the course a “C+” and Golf Now an “F”. It is supposed to be convenient using Golf Now, but in our case it wasn’t convenient at all. I wasn’t going to write this, but you asked. You should know improvement is needed.

Conquistador Golf

Course was not in great shape , greens are bumpy , waste areas are not groomed with lots of weeds , no snack bar for treats and beverages , only one cart girl visit in 4 hour round . Course has lots of potential but needs a lot of attention . The Canada course appeared to be in better shape !!

Excellent Venue

At the Golf and Recreation Center in Oro Valley in the Foothills region north of Tucson, one of 2 eighteen hole courses owned by the Hilton (1/2 mile away) and operated by Troon Golf. Excellent conditioning, very interesting layout, well but not excessively bunkered. Greens are large and receptive, some 2-tiered, putting affected by location of Tucson in valley below. Great staff made us feel valued and welcome.
