Decent day.

The round was pretty decent. Started getting warm early but didn't see the beverage cart until the back nine. Also no on was attending carts had to go up and ask the employee at the golf shop to check on which cart to take if we could.

NMSU Golf Course

This golf course was great looking. The fairways in great condition, the rough was tough and the greens in good shape. Good scores are there for the taking.

Good but could be better

This was our first time playing here. Maybe we are spoiled at Red Hawk, but what I disliked could easily be fixed.

The course was in excellent condition. So I am giving that 4 stars. However, with temps close to 100 degrees I was very disappointed in the beverage service. At Red Hawk the cart drives the course so you see them every 3 holes or so. Not here. They were parked at the 9th hole when we finally saw them. We even called the pro shop to ask status as we were quickly becoming dehydrated. (partly from being spoiled at RH). I even resorted to trying the water spigots. Thank goodness one worked!

We were unsure of the rules on drinks at this course so went by RH rules of no outside drinks. Had I known the cart wouldn't be coming around as often I would have brought my own water. So note to anyone playing here for the first time BRING YOUR OWN WATER!!

Snooty Staff

The staff at NMSU continues to give me reasons NOT to play here. We arrived on time for our tee time and were told we could start on #1. We proceed to the #1 tee box and found there were no scare cards on the cart or in the box used to store them. We returned to the club house to get a card and pencil only to be told by another starter..a RUDE man, that we are going to start on #10! I told him we were already at #1 and came back because no one put scare cards anywhere to be found! Now we look over to #10 and there is a log jam starting in front of us. Plus he put a walker in our group which slowed things up even more. PLUS, we had to play in the sprinklers for the first 3 holes since the grounds keeper would not turn them off as we came through! Play here with patience...you'll be tested by the rude employees. The positive take away is that they always have cute and very friendly beverage cart girls at NMSU! Try to hold your tongue when it comes to the over-baring staff.

Great place to play

Amazing course! Only thing I would say is to have better signs to put you in the right hole. Started in #10 and didn’t even know it untill 4 because they were the same par. Other than not knowing the right hole we are on it was great. Also, the current signs holds are sun faded so you can’t tell which hole your on.
