One of 2 championship 18-hole golf course located a very short drive north of the Hilton Tucson El Conquistador Golf & Tennis Resort. Designed by Jeff Hardin and Greg Nash this course has more desert-style design. Hundreds of mesquite trees line the fairways and protect greens on approach. And while the fairways are wide and forgiving, arroyos and outcroppings manage to impede from the edges on more than a few holes. Most of the holes begin from elevated tees which give good vantage points and play to elevated greens and offer wonderful views of the surrounding region. The signature hole is the 8th hole which is considered one of the toughest par-3's in Tucson.Home to the Hilton Golf Academy for private lessons or group sessions and clinics.
