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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Exceptional people, but the course needs serious help. I guess with the heat and drought, they could not help it. Looking forward to going back when the fairways have grass.

We were a twosome. All the personnel with whom we interfaced were friendly and excellent in their demeanour. The warm up range was a disappointment, we were required to hit from mats. We only used our "desert club" to warm up because of the mats. The course is a friendly, challenging track. The maintenance was good, especially considering the drought and temps in the low 100's. The fairways were cut at a good height to facilitate good play. Greens were slower than I am used to. However, this could be the result of growing the greens longer to protect them from the 100+ degree temps. We played the first 11 holes in about 1 hour and 30 minutes, shooting just below our handicaps. On the 12th hole we caught the twosome in front of us, who had at some point caught the group in front of them. From that point on, that twosome and we had to wait on every shot. The group in front of the two twosomes showed no interest or desire to pick up the pace of play or to allow the faster groups to play through as is the normal etiquette. As the result, the last 7 holes took nearly two hours to play. There was no player ambassador on the course. We will play again.

Coarse, buildings and carts need upgraded. Fairways are brown with little grass. Greens were great! I would not go back. There are much nicer courses to play in the area for the same price.

We booked a foursome on GOLFNOW at 9:10 AM. When we got to the course they said we were at 9:20 AM. I showed them my GOLFNOW receipt and they said GOLFNOW often had the wrong time. Not a big deal but the course changed the time to convenience a better time for members. The staff in the club house were also very crabby, It was going to be 92 degrees in Tucson that day and the ice machine was out of cups and not making ice. We did finally get ice when we talked to the facility manager. The pace of play was great... we never saw anybody close behind us. The greens were in good shape and the fairways were all well watered. I would play again.
