View Tee Times

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.

Great round/ fast play Second time this week both rounds were under four hours. Play after 1:00PM no waiting. February 27, 2015
Best for the Money I had not played El Rio for 15 years. Golf Now had a special so I took it. I am so glad I did! This course has recently been re worked and is in the best shape I ever saw it!! I lived in Tucson 15 years ago for 20 years and have recently moved back. I will definitely play El Rio again. Congratulations to the Management and Staff of this course. What a treasure in the center of Tucson. February 21, 2015
NIce greens Weather was great, which made the day nice. Thought it was overpriced with what I paid for green fees. I would play again but not for the price I paid. February 17, 2015
Pleasantly Surprised Have been driving by this place for a few years and never attempted to stop and play. Here for January and February every year usually play about 30 rounds on 20 different courses. I know there is a new management team in place here so I'm sure things will fall in line...Course is not what I expected...some really nice holes and I love the bunkering around the greens...Will probably return...

Excellent Value I booked this course through GolfNow for under $30.00 with cart. The course is very good for a below average player like myself, the holes are not too long and the trouble spots can be avoided. The greens were hard and fast. February 10, 2015
Nice Layout Avery nice course and has some difficult holes. I would recommend to anyone. The greens are well groomed and some are not easy to read. February 8, 2015
the course needs some work Greens need some work for improvement. fairway was ok. Slow pace play, behind a 5 some, which were held up by a couple of slow players, Course marshall asked if the 5 some should be split, but it wasn't them that held up the play, it was the couple ahead of them.

Cheap but still not worth it. Why the city continues to keep this course open is beyond me. The fairways are dead, dry grass that seems to have been dyed a putrid green. The tee boxes are in decent shape as are the green areas but the greens are like concrete and good luck with finding sand. That said it was very busy so there ae lots of folks more forgiving thn I.
