Tucson El Conquistador Golf Course review

Independent golf tips for the professional at Leisure

February 2009

The Hilton El Conquistador resort is at 10000 North Oracle Road in Tucson is a great winter getaway, reasonably priced, with great rooms and golf.

Arizona offers a wide range of resort experiences for the golfer, ranging from the opulent Phoenician ($800 per night, with golf), down to lesser resorts catering to the working-class elderly.

This was our second stay with the Hilton resorts in 2009, as Hilton is offering unbeatable deals on dog-friendly rooms with golf.

The El Conquistador gave us a $150/night "Casita", a small house thingy, with a spectacular view, and live bunnies and quail for Noel to watch.  Noel loved it! 

The golf is not world-class, but for middle-aged hackers like us, it was perfect, fun courses, all for a total of under $300 day for 18 holes for to plus room.

On-site, they have a cute little 9 hole course that you can play twice, a little course that weaves in and out from the casitas.

 This Hilton "Resort" is not a resort in the traditional sense, and it's a bit worn around the edges, but as a "moderate hotel", it's perfect!

Room service is OK, but not spectacular, but up on Oracle road in north Tucson there is a great variety of great restaurants.

You may also want to avoid the "fusion" restaurant at El Conquistador, horrid by any standard.  However, the cafe makes up for this, with a great breakfast buffet, homemade has browns and omelettes.


Desert golf takes some getting used to, especially resisting the temptation to go after a ball and perhaps find a rattlesnake!

If you just want to relax, the El Conquistador is great, you can just hop-into a golf car and be on the links in no time at all.

The staff is exceptionally friendly and overall, the El Conquistador is a exceptional value for the money.
