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.

fun in the city Course is in very good shape,they do work on the sand bunkers,staff is cool, had a good time.. December 18, 2014
markers They need more markers on the coarse? Something you canseeinstead of wasting time looking for markers on ground? December 13, 2014
Good day of Golf The course has so much history as the Tucson Open and it is the same exact course, it is fun to imagine the past and the fun the pro's had playing this course. December 6, 2014
Great bunkering around greens Course is a good challenge around the greens, worth playing again November 27, 2014
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
