One of 2 championship, 18-hole golf course located a short drive from the Hilton Tucson El Conquistador Golf & Tennis Resort in northeast Tucson. Designed by Jeff Hardin and Greg Nash this course clearly lends a more traditional feel but still has touches of desert flora. You still must contend with rolling terrain and the occasional side hill lie. More than 60 fairway bunkers add quite a challenge off the tee and the gently rolling greens have openings in front but mounding to the sides and back put added pressure on pitch shots fired at the pin.
Located at the base of the Santa Catalina Mountain Range this course also provides wonderful mountain and canyon views. The signature hole is the 16th which features 16 well-placed bunkers and great views of Pusch Ridge. Home to the Hilton Golf Academy for private or group lessons and clinics.
