Course is in great shape. Fairways are lush and not to firm. Greens are in great shape and a bit fast. Always a challenge reading the greens. Sand traps are much better than in past years.

The Marty Sanchez Links de Santa Fe maybe a "muni" course but it delivers an exceptional value for its price, level of course difficulty and friendly staff. The pace of play could be improved by course Marshalls however because everyone is so friendly I think the Marshalls are overly timid when it comes to encouraging groups to hurry up pace of play or asking groups to join up into 4 somes if need be. Overall the course is in great shape and I feel lucky to have such a gem of a course located in my backyard and hometown of Santa Fe, NM. Kudos to the city and staff for making it such an enjoyable experience each and every time I play there.

With the exception of a 15 min rain delay, an absolute great day of golf. Played an afternoon round for about $20 on Golf Now. The short rain kept things cool and the course is as green as could be. You get to use every club in your bag at this fun course.

The greens and fairways were in very good condition. The only drawback was no marshall and we got behind 4 guys playing VERY slow and they would not let us around so we had to skip a par 3 to get around them. I would play again because really liked course.

I like to play here. 9 minute drive from my house. You can ride for $33 or walk for $22 (senior rate) Plenty golfers walk here. Play early if you want to finish in under 4.5 hrs. The conditions are average at best. The bunkers lack good sand. The greens are nice and roll smooth. It has a " links" feel.

A very nice New Mexico course, both fairways and greens were in great shape. I was very happy playing here. But beware, I booked my GolfNow tee time at 2:00 pm for $33 with cart for a 30% savings. However, this tee time was during the course's twilight afternoon schedule. Their regular twilight tee time rate was already $33 with cart. So I didn't save any money booking through GoldNow. The booking fee I paid was simply a waste of my money. I've requested a refund of my booking fee from GolfNow. We'll see if they refund it.

I will play at this course again but I may not use GolfNow to book my tee time.
