This was the first time playing this course. When I drove by, got the average muni vibe, so was a little reluctant to play. But the other courses in the area were booked with tournaments, so really had no other choice but to play here. Glad I did. Was a great value. Doesn't have the glamor that the other resort courses in the area have, but the track itself competes with all of them. Course was in great shape and pretty challenging. Rough was long, due to the college tournaments they were hosting. Overall think this is one of the best values in the area and would definitely play again.

Played here in Aug 2016. Conditions were great. Greens were well manicured, and fast. Tee boxes in excellent shape, and fairways good too. Bunkers however, do not have the soft, white sand you'd come to expect. They are very hard to hit out of. Rough is very thick, but grass (not weeds). Course plays long. A few blind shots. The grill is nice and convenient. Pro shop staff were nice too. Recommend, esp during the week. Also a great driving range and practice facility too.

First time playing Played as a single Used cart Played 18 holes Good weather

Played here on a Sunday with a deal of $37 with a cart. The facility is 5 minutes from the airport, so it is easy to have it be the first round or one that is done the day you leave. I wouldn't recommend travelling to Albuquerque or Santa Fe to play here, but if you are in town, it is quite convenient and worth the time.<br/> The facility has a putting green and driving range so it is a place that you can warm up. There is also a restaurant on the other side of the pro-shop; get something with Green Chile-you are in New Mexico.

As for the course itself, there are a lot of greens on top of hills; some of which are fronted by bunkers. Best have your aerial game on here. Many holes drive down from the tee box and then approach up to the green. Fairways are not very wide, but are wide enough if you are on. If not, then you will need some powers of recovery as rough is rough and some holes have water or scrub.Greens have some back to front slope in them so staying below the hole is important. The larger greens have sections divided by ridges, so being on the correct side of them is important.They also ran pretty fast, but true. The conditioning of the course was very good period; never the less for late fall. It is a championship course for a reason and I think that a scratch golfer will enjoy this place a lot. Nothing spectacular hole-wise, but no weak or bad holes either. As for nature, I saw a couple of coyotes and road runners. The course is in its own area and no houses around. Just a good solid course.

Overall, although there are better courses in New Mexico; If in town on business and you are bringing your sticks, the convenient location makes this one to do on the way in or out of the airport. If you are in town for multiple days, play Paa-Ko Ridge and then this is good place to fill in a trip.
