A group led by the pro golfer is purchasing the Chandler, Ariz., property, though the deal has not yet closed and the price has not been disclosed. The property features 27 holes of golf surrounded by man-made lakes, and will be the eighth golf course in the state owned by the group.
The Oro Valley, Ariz., property has launched “El Conquistador Western Adventures,” offering guests trail rides, riding lessons, and family-friendly adventures in the Sonoran Desert. The 18-horse stable will be run by Pot A Gold Stables.
The Oro Valley (Ariz.) Town Council budgeted for a loss of $1.5 million for the new golf course and restaurant, but figures are closer to $1.95 million. The town bought the property in 2014 in a controversial acquisition, and has made efforts to reduce expenses by limiting golf course and lap pool hours and restaurant staff.
The public, 5,282-sq. ft. restaurant opened the week of October 19, featuring high ceilings, a bar with five flatscreen TVs, and a menu with classic American dishes. The restaurant was previously part of the Hilton El Conquistador Country Club. The town’s controversial acquisition of the property last year has prompted a recall election for those who voted in favor of the purchase.
The purchase is the first step in a plan for HSL to sell the Tucson, Ariz., resort’s country club and golf holes to the town of Oro Valley for $1 million over three years.
The private, previously member-owned property will undergo a million-dollar reinvention project under its new owner, which will include improvements to the golf course, clubhouse, and outdoor patio.
Through the proposed deal, hotel company HSL Properties would buy the Tucson, Ariz., resort, then sell its country club to the town of Oro Valley for $1 million.
