Fantastic course - highly recommend it. The clubhouse is beside a windmill and on the first hole it felt like a gigantic miniature golf course. This was the most fun course I have every played. The views are breath-taking from many holes. Several blind holes so the first time through is a little tough - need to rely on the cart GPS to see where to hit. Loved the bowl shape holes where if you just hit the bowl your ball would roll to a good position but miss it and you are out of bounds. A few too many sand traps for my taste but the traps did make it challenging. A little spendy and out of the way but overall worth the drive and higher green fees. Excellent practice center (separate driving range, chipping area & putting areas).

It was a bit too sandy for my pleasure; however, it was exactly what you would expect to get in New Mexico. The club house was nice and clean. I enjoyed it, even though I lost a lot of balls. Worth the drive.

Played here in mid March (2008) so the grass was dormant which cut down on the contrasting beauty between the fairway / greens and surrounding area. Course was in great shape and the staff was very friendly. Well worth the drive from Albuquerque to play here. If you're in New Mexico, make the trip here and you won't be disappointed.

Wow! All I can say. This course is in perfect tour event shape. It is out of the way but that is probably what makes it so incredible. Excellent greens and very difficult from the back black tees. Service is a bit lacking and the food is below average. But this is offset by great marshalls, starters and club house staff. A must play in New Mexico
