SKYLINE COUNTRY CLUB
The rugged backdrop of the Santa Catalinas and hawk-eye views of the Tucson valley never cease to evoke awe and wonder, pleasure and pride. John Bender and Leonard Savage were so enamored with the pristine site in 1959, they dreamed of a way to preserve and privatize it. Our 18 hole, par 71 golf course winds its way through the Sonoran Desert Foothills providing a unique golf experience amidst nature’s beauty.
Tee off under the warm Arizona sun in the shadow of the dramatic Santa Catalina Mountains, just north of Tucson, Arizona. El Conquistador Golf & Tennis, located in the heart of Oro Valley, boasts three championship golf courses to choose from, the Conquistador Course, the Cañada Course and the Pusch Ridge Course.
When course architect William Bell first singled out this magnificent property - this rich lowland that the Navajo and Yavapi once farmed, and magically transformed it into a golf course like no other. The 18-hole course (7000+ yards) is tree-lined, in a Midwestern style of design. And, it is the best walking course in Tucson, with nature's abundant creatures surviving and thriving in this area. Tucson Country Club provides a tremendous golf experience for all levels of golfers. Kids and beginning players can comfortably develop their games, while the more accomplished players can certainly be challenged by the course's length, its bunkering and the subtle breaks on the greens.
