A day of Agony

Played the East North and although the East is in great condition, the north is still in need of much water.

The agony comes in because we had a mower seem like he was following us and whenever he was mowing down our fairway, he didn't bother to stop and wait for us to hit.

No etiquette what so ever as if we were a bother to him!

They probably shouldn't put us out on a course that there working, I thought why they had 3 nines!

Great desert course

Absolutely beautiful course. Accurate teeshots are rewarded with challenging but fair approach shots. We had a great time and enjoyed the challenge. Will definitely be playing again.

The course greens were in immmaculate shape!!!

It was my first time back on a course in a few months due to the pandemic. So it was very refreshing to see all the work the staff has done to meet the guidance on social distancing and how easy it was to check-in. I was expecting to deal with a bit of over growth in the fairways and shaggy greens. But to my surprise the tee boxes and fairways were in great shape; but what took my breath away were the greens. They were beautiful and in immaculate shape considering. My hat is off to the course superintendent on managing the upkeep of the course. I look forward to playing here again real soon. Great job to the entire staff.

Amazing Experience

I have only played one desert course before, but many other traditional courses. This was by far the most amazing experience I have ever had golfing. The staff across the entire clubhouse was first class with service. The clubhouse itself is gorgeous. The course, while spectacular in its views and scenary, it both challenging and rewarding.
I thank everyone at Painted Dunes forbthe opportunity to play there. I look forward to getting the chance again.

Painted Dunes

Course was in excellent condition for winter time. Greens were quick and smooth. I encountered several of the staff on the course conducting maintenance like mowing and even manicuring the bunkers. Played by myself and finished in 2.45 hours. Perfect day for golf.

Lou

I recently moved tin El Paso and after trying several courses this has become my favorite. Even in the Winter, the course plays well. Stay out of the desert or it may be hard to find your ball, and if you do it will likely be in a tumbleweed plant. If you can hit your drives in the fairway or first cut, you can scores pretty well here. The greens are all multi-tiered and run fairly fast. Angle of approach to the greens in important ,too. The stimp rating is posted outside the clubhouse and seems accurate. Even with recent aerating, they roll true. The pro shop is friendly, and the restaurant/bar serves good food.

North/West Perfect

Painted Dunes North/West course was perfect for December golf. The North course is more modern with wider fairways and large greens. The west course plays as the hardest nine at the facility and was in excellent condition as well. The greens all rolled extremely fast and smooth. The overseeding has began to take so the courses have a green tint in the fairways and on the tee boxes. Go play.
