My husband and I have only been playing golf for less than 2 years. We decided to take a road trip through New Mexico and play golf. Our first stop was Cloudcroft, Inn of the Mountain Gods, then Truth or Consequences. We had only planned on playing here one day but it was such a nice and wonderful course that we stayed one more day so we could play it a second time. It was by far our favorite course of the three. We had the luxury of playing during the week. This course at $55 which included lunch was an incredible bargain. We plan on returning and just staying in Truth or Consequences to play this course for several days next trip. The maintenance and lush green against the New Mexico dessert terrain and mountains were spectacular to say the least. Amazing experience!!

This golf course is a jewel in the desert. There is no bermuda, the greens are bentgrass and the fairways are a mixture of rye and bluegrass. Easily one of the top values in the southwest! Great Golf Course!

Excellent playing course. Scenery was majestic and comfortable. Course was balanced in challenging of the greens play an ease in manuevering the course. We will keep coming back for more fun and excitement. The turf was like carpet!! well maintained; even the bunkers were well cared for. The clubhouse resturant was enjoyable and the staff friendly throughout the clubhouse.

With the one exception of the sand in the bunkers, which the owner says he is going to replace (it is very fimr and does not drain well) this course is Scottsdale, AZ quality at one-fourth to one-third the price. The pro shop and bar/grill and restaurant are also excellent, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. A fantastic golfing experience.
