El Conquistador - Canada Course
1000 N Oracle Rd
Tucson, AZ 85704
The 18-hole Ca¤ada course is a 6,713-yard par 72 with a rating of 72.2 and a slope of 140. The greens were renovated in the summer of 2000, but retains the charm and challenge of high-desert golf popular for over a decade. The natural terrain comes into play as fairways wind through ravines and arroyos. The challenge of this course is in the proper club selection. Many golfers prefer the Ca¤ada course because it demands a good deal of strategy, requiring a player to use every club. There's a lot of variety on Ca¤ada - with considerable mounding, doglegs and elevation changes from the tee to the green. There are many birdie opportunities on the par 4's, but the risk may outweigh the reward for some golfers.
