The Pusch Ridge course is a nine-hole, 2,788-yard, par-35 with a 65.6 rating and a slope of 110. The course encircles the 428-room resort property and is considered by some to be the best-kept secret in Arizona golf. Sporting a 175-foot change in elevation from start to finish, this par 35 layout is not to be taken lightly. It makes full use of the ravines and ridges in the mountain desert, as well as indigenous cacti and trees, such as saguaro, ocotillo, mesquite and palo verde. While it may serve as a warm-up for the two championship courses at the El Conquistador Golf Club, Pusch Ridge provides challenging play for all skill levels.
Dramatic elevation changes, small greens and the signature 380-yard 5th hole make for memorable rounds. The 5th hole is a par 4 surrounded by water with a walkway to an island green. The hole is considered one of the most scenic in Tucson and draws a variety of local wildlife, including blue heron and javelinas.
