Great Track! Terrible Conditions

Wife and I played Towa (Boulder/Valley) while vacationing in the area. Easy to book on-line. The staff was friendly and helpful. The resort has 3 nines and we played Boulder and Valley. The Boulder had just been aerated, Valley was next. We loved the design/track. A challenging golf course. Not overly long. Narrow in some places. Some blind shots. In-cart GPS allows you to see where you're going. The greens on Valley (not yet aerated) were great. Boulder's greens had just been aerated, so not so good. The fairways and, especially the rough were in TERRIBLE condition. We understand that there were some significant water issues earlier tis year and water had to be turned of to the rough for a long time. Much of it is dead or bare dirt. Adjacent fairways are also in pretty bad shape. Assuming they can get things back in shape, this would be a great course (and a great place to stay and play). In the short term, we really couldn't recommend it.

Least favorite of the 3

This nine was the least favorite, some holes were short but not obvious were you run out of fairway. Go out and enjoy!

Best of the 3

This nine holes was my favorite out of the three nine hole courses. Definitely demands shots be made to the correct locations but not too penalizing if you spray a little! Would play this again if we were still in town.

Not what one would expect from a resort course.

Played Boulder and Valley courses in golf outing. The courses were in very bad shape. New Mexico has been suffering a drought, but other area courses are in much better shape. Fairways burnt out, weeds and signs of neglect are present. The greens were the only saving grace. Some bad spots but overall, not too bad. Nice views and a decent layout for most levels of golf. A few blind shots and a few forced carries. Needs much TLC to be considered a resort course.

Very challenging and fun. Course is dry in some spots because of no rain but fairways and geens were in good shape. Course gave me a $20 discount because of conditions. Staff was very friendly and helpful, I had a great time.

High desert

This was a really fun and challenging experience. We played 18 holes, lost lots of balls and found lots of balls. Very hot, but was provided with an icechest and water as much as we wanted. The trees and greens were in good shape for such a desert terrain.

Drought damaged

The people were great, the greens were good, the areas around the greens and fairways have suffered from the drought conditions. I suggest you wait until conditions improve, or expect some bad lies, some issues you wouldn’t normally endure, which made it disappointing. The area was pretty, but there must be a better place to play in Santa Fe.

Goat Track!

This may have been a nice course when they watered it but it is NOT now. The Fairways are 20% green and 89% Dead! The Greens were ok for the most part but not great. Too bad because the setting is awesome!

Towa

Great layout, greens & tee boxes in excellent shape, but fairways feeling the effects of the drought. Would play this course again.
