El Rio Golf Course
This being my third time playing this course I am pleased to say the conditions are consistent. The fairways are in excellent shape and the course is challenging with sand traps tucked in close to greens. The tee boxes need a lot of work however, there are bare spots or crab grass on most. This day the greens had been recently plugged so ball was bouncing a lot, but two weeks ago there was nothing bad to say about them. Nice break from playing the target golf so many of the desert courses demand. It will be my go to course as it is close to my home.

Challenging but still fun
The course was in really good shape. The greens were perfect. Many bunkers made it challenging but fun.

Tucson city courses are good value. They offer a fair price to play in 100+ degree temperatures.

The staff was friendly. The golf carts were cleaned. The only problem I had was not having a map of the course. On a couple of holes I had a difficult time locating the flag from the tee.

Enjoyed the track
Short but challenging with small greens that are guarded by bunkers on nearly every hole. second shots had to be played from proper angle and distance to hold the green.
Just aerated so greens in pretty rough shape, but overall enjoyable round after work and decent pace of play.

Check it out if you haven't played El Rio in awhile
Pleasantly surprised. Tee boxes and fairways are in much better shape than neighboring courses. Greens have just been aerated but can tell the difference Golf People are running the course now.

About 1 year since last played course. Improvements are being made by the new management. Fairways have grass now in all areas. Greens are excellent. Sand traps need a lot of work as drainage is poor. I know that this is extensive and expensive but can be done with a good plan. This is a good city course with small greens that are guarded by traps in front. Keep up the good work OB Sports and show the city and the golfing community how a first class operation should be run.
