General information

The Hilton El Conquistador Resort complex includes 45 holes of championship golf, a beautiful complimentary grass driving range, spacious putting green with sand bunker and short game chipping area. A beautiful full service clubhouse features a pro shop, restaurant and lounge, plus spacious locker rooms with showers, for both men and women.. The Canada and Conquistador Courses are 18 hole Greg Nash and Jeff Hardin designs located about 3 miles from the resort, and the Pusch Ridge is gorgeous 9 hole design playing into the mountains right on property. Together, they form the largest golf complex in Tucson. Golf packages of various lengths are available through the Hilton, and are very reasonable considering that golf is included both on the day of arrival and departure, with additional same day rounds complimentary based on availability. A great place to stay if you can't get enough golf!

The newly renovated Hilton Conquistador Resort is nestled in the foothills of the Santa Catalinas Mountains, and is designed to meet the needs of business and leisure travelers alike. On property are 428 guest rooms, five distinctive restaurants, a fitness center and spa, swimming pools and jacuzzis, a salon, an on-site equestrian center, and 31 lighted tennis courts. The Hilton Golf Academy features programs ranging from one day personalized clinics to 5 and 6 day golf schools. Visit www.hiltongolfacademy.com for details.

The two 18-hole and the beautiful 9-hole Pusch Ridge courses all feature effecient on-course marking systems, with 150 yard stakes in the middle of the fairways, sprinklers heads measured to the front, middle and back of the greens, plus yardage blocks at 100 and 200 yards. Color coded flags indicate the day's hole locations.

PUSCH RIDGE COURSE

The Pusch Ridge Course is a wonderful nine hole layout that is located right on property adjacent to the Hilton El Conquistador Resort. This is not an executive style layout - but is rather a 2,800 yard 9-hole course that would fit in with either of the two championship 18-hole courses that are part of the resort property. Looking for a quick round upon arrival or on your departure date? Pusch Ridge is a great option. What's more, the course features a couple holes that are perhaps the most spectacular holes of the 45 available!

Holes 3 through 7 will grab your attention, both for their stunning beauty and challenging designs. The mountain backdrop behind the third green is spectacular, as is the view of the resort from the ridge that plays to the par three 4th. Water protects the green on three sides and also affects the second shot on the par five 5th, and number six doglegs sharply right to an elevated putting complex. This stretch ends with a par three over a formidable desert ravine.

Three sets of tees at Pusch Ridge play to 2788, 2579 and 2322 yards. Though the grass on the fairways and tee area grass was kept a bit longer than the championship courses during our visit, the overall conditioning and landscaping mirrored those of the Conquistador and Canada layouts. Pusch Ridge features its own pro shop, with a snack bar as well - that also services the considerable tennis facility located adjacent. There is a large putting/chipping green, plus a nice short game area with practice bunker.

We highly recommend a round here...one tip - keep it below the hole! The greens are well kept and true rolling with only mild undulations - but most of the putting surfaces are sloped from back to front - sometimes severely so. Run it past the pin and one-putts will be hard to come by. For more info on the Pusch Ridge course, click here for their website.
