Mountain Course, of Course!
The Lodge course is very beautiful as far as the setting in the mountains and huge pine trees. Nine hole course that has several holes going up the hills or down to a green below. It was a lot of fun to play this course, but just remember that it is cart path only on every hole.
The course has had a bad season of weather and it shows. It's a fun course with friends or family.
Course conditions are terrible
Course conditions are terrible. I have played it Cloudcroft once or twice a year for about six years. The course is in worse shape than I have ever seen it before. The fairways look more like a rough and appeared not to be mowed. The greens are so slow and scarred that they are very hard to put on. Please fix your beautiful course and restore it to her usual condition!
We play here as often as possible it’s a fun course
Greens are getting better from a bad winter a few years ago
The course needs help.
I played this course year before last loved it it ranked up there with other 18 hole courses in the area. But this year it is not up to its potential. Needs a little tender loving care. Could come back but I don’t see it this year.
Lack of rain and winter snow changed lush, fun course into a barren, brown mess. We usually love to play but feel it would have been proper to warn people that the course was in such horrible shape. Hopefully they'll get some rain or figure out how to correct this. It was not our usual fun time at Cloudcroft. We paid for 18 but only played 9.
Course is my all time favorite(and I have played Pebble Beach). It’s staff is always friendly and helpful. The greens need some warm weather and the whole southwest needs rain, but I can’t wait to play the Lodge course again.
Funky, old mountain course
Terrible condition and a rather silly layout, even for a mountain course.
Great golf course in the forest
My wife and I enjoyed playing this golf course. It's isolated and serene. Pace of play is mellow and allows you to take in the forest and relax.
We arrived an hour before our tee time but asked if we might be able to go off early. They said as soon as there was an opening tee off. The first few holes were slow but then we joined up with the two-some in front of us. The rest of the round seemed faster and more fun. It's a fun course,easier than some but interesting. We'll be back.
Gorgeous Golf Course
Beautiful place and very friendly and helpful staff! Only drawback was it was very hilly and it was cart path Only. Makes a tough 18 if you have a lil age on you plus your at around 9000 feet. But will definitely play it again!!!
Golf in the Mountains
Great vista's. The course was in excellent condition. Tee times were very good. All around great experience.
Lots of grass, beautiful greens!!
A pleasure, don't miss it if you have a chance to play!!
Still My Favorite New Mexico Course
I've played this course many times before, but yesterday the fairways needed mowed. They may have had a lot of rain lately, keeping them from mowing the fairways. They were also mowing one of the fairways yesterday.
Into Thin Air!
I think most golfers remember some courses over other courses for good & bad reasons. I think this one will be remembered for good reasons. At over 9,000 ft elevation, you won't find many higher than this one. The first thing that jumps out at you is the elevation changes. The 1st tee to green drops 150 ft!. You'll be impressed with the views on every hole and you may be sucking gas as you move along the course because it's cart path only! Fortunately, it's a fairly short layout. They fairways are generally spotty due to the elev. & rain. However, the greens are generally in very good condition but putt pretty slow. Only a few sand Bunkers on course and they were OK. Paths need some work in many places but they are functional. Overall, a very memorable golf experience. And by the way, the restaurant in the Lodge Inn next to the course is excellent!
Beat the Heat
I like to play The Lodge Course a few times a Summer. A great place to beat the heat of the desert. About 16 degrees cooler in the mountains. Also a fun, relaxing place to play and the thin air adds a few extra yards off the tee. Everyone should play here at least once.
Must stay at the lodge on your visit, also visit the tower in the lodge. We didn't see Rebecca!! Golf was great as well as the lodge. We will go back!
