El Rio Golf Course dates back to the 1930s and was the original site for the Tucson Open. The course was operated as a country club until 1968 when the City of Tucson acquired it for public use. The course layout features tight fairways, small greens, relatively flat terrain, two lakes, and numerous trees. El Rio is ideal for the "short knocker," measuring 6,000 yards from the regular tees, and 6,400 from the back tees.

El Rio getting better EL RIO is getting in better shape. The best I've ever seen it. Fun course at a real fair price. Easy to walk on and play after Noon. November 13, 2014
Improvments I have played Rio several times and the court is improving a lot the last couple of months but bunkers need to be improved, November 11, 2014
tax One thing I don't understand, (please clarify),, When I use golf now and pay a certain amount then my confirmation email say the amount that is due at the course and when I try to pay at the course they always charge me a little more and say its taxes. What's going on. .But after arguing my point a bit she ended up giving me the course rate which was $18 vs golfnow rate of $27. November 1, 2014
good last minute tee time El Rio is in good shape and is a great place to work on straight shots.....a challenge for most of us.....:). October 23, 2014
NOT EVEN A LONE RANGER There was a 4some 2 groups ahead of us that were goofing around and hitting extra balls and no ranger on the course to inform them that they needed to pick up the pace. October 12, 2014
Nice course The course was in good shape, fairways and roughs were well maintained and the course was easy to follow. The greens were slow but consistent making them easy to play. A few of the tee boxes are in need of maintenance as they are overgrown with uneven plots of grass. As with most muni courses here in Tucson the bunkers are terrible. They have little or no sand and are basically loose packed dirt. They are definitely in need of attention. Overall, Trini Alvarez El Rio golf course is quite nice and I'd recommend it.

Good value As always this course is fun to play. Simple to look at but enough trees for a lot of trouble. It was in good shape though the greens are getting burned in spots. The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to make it enjoyable which is not always found in Tucson, September 21, 2014
NIce course for value It was a great course to play on. Will play it again. September 15, 2014
