The Hilton Tucson El Conquistador Golf & Tennis Resort is Southern Arizona’s largest golf resort, with a total of 45 holes of championship golf on three golf courses. (9 holes are at Pusch Ridge)
On the border between nature and civilization, the resort is located on 500 acres of high Sonoran Desert and beneath the western ridge of the Santa Catalina Mountains. Golf enthusiasts have an opportunity to observe the fascinating desert wildlife while enjoying the scenic beauty of this picturesque location.
The courses are excellent examples of the work of Jeff Hardin and Greg Nash. The Scottsdale, Arizona-based designers built the courses to follow the existing contours of the land. They made use of the natural features while altering the landscape as little as possible to create 45 holes of golf.
The resort's premier course, the 18-hole Conquistador is a 6,801-yard par 71 with a rating of 72.7 and a slope of 126. Recently renovated, the course provides an exceptional golf experience for all skill levels. The re-shaped fairways and greens create an exceptionally playable course. The new 419 Tiffway hybrid Bermuda turf allows for better lies on the fairways and Tiff Eagle on the greens produces truer and quicker putts. The new landscaping adjacent to the fairways means the desert rarely comes into play except as a beautiful backdrop for every round. The course offers a variety of short par 5's and long par 4's with dramatic mountain views and elevation changes.
