El Rio Golf Course
Time Well Spent
We came to Tucson to golf and we played several well known and manicured area courses - all good fun, The day we flew out we knew we didn't have a lot of time but still wanted to get a last round in. Low and behold, El Rio appeared on the radar! We loved it and played 18 in 3 hours and still made our flight. Ok, so it wasn't terribly difficult, but we're not the great golfers that might look down on this course. We both found challenges and rewards. And more
importantly, the people we met on the course as well as those in the shop, were down-to-earth nice people who could laugh and smile along with us.It was a slice of real golf America.

Course / Bunkers
The course is in fair shape. Tee boxes and greens are average. Some areas are patchy and in need of repair. The bunkers are horrible: no sand, just mud and dirt is the norm . New management should take full control of the course conditioning.

Average coourse made dificut because of traps around greens with small greens
Sand traps still need sand. would like to have tee areas softer sometion\mes I feel that I need a hammer to getthe tee in the groumd Good value for thwe money

I walked this course with my sister and another female friend (none of us play much). We had such a wonderful time and everyone was so nice (maybe because we met everyone around us as it seemed we were playing in several fairways...see note about not playing often) The course was in good shape and the weather was absolutely beautiful!

Typical city of Tucson course
Course crowded. Golf carts were at a premium (not many available). Was not on list.- had to prove my tee time with Golf Now print out.

Bumpy greens, but a great muni track
A nice muni layout, well bunkered greens and trees will punish any wayward shots. The greens were really bumpy and rather hard to play. They have a great, friendly staff.

Great for a City Course
Course was in good shape and a bit tough. Place was busy and golfers started the first hole every ten minutes probably due to the excellent deal for 18 holes on that date.
