Beautiful course

This is a well manicured and stunningly beautiful course with lots of wonderful scenery and wildlife to see.

The only reason it didn't get 5* for everything is the slow play. Also, they allow 5 balls out which slows the round down considerably.

Fun course to play

Overall I had an excellent experience. Greens and shots off the tee were challenging. The course is really pretty. My only complaint was that the bunkers need to be repaired. The edges were not well defined.

Mountain beautiful

One of my favorite mountain resort courses.
A great layout and beautifully maintained.
A championship course with no senior tees.
So play the forward tees if like me your long game has become a little shorter.
Simply beautiful views. Greens challenging.
Great layout.
One will never be bored.
Great stay and play rates.
One of New Mexico's best.
Enjoy golf.

Beauty & The Beast

Nothing but praise for a beautiful, quiet, very well cared for, challenging track! With the exception of a driving range that would allow all clubs to be used, this is a gem!!

7-5-19 round

Great layout and beautiful scenery. Pro shop staff was great and accommodating. Marshall and beverage cart very friendly as well. Area could use a little rain and some areas were showing a little stress from the heat. Great round and afternoon overall.

Great course

This was my first time on the course and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The course was very well maintained and greens were beautiful. By far this has been the best golf course that I have ever played. I definitely recommend this course.

Beautiful but tough

I play a lot of golf and have a 12 handicap. This course plays long even at altitude because of green elevations. Greens are not easy to read and I misread a lot of putts. I played by myself and would have benefitted from playing with someone who understood landing zones as I was often on wrong side of fairway on blind tee shots. Would definitely play again. This time of year easy to get on and never waited, also some good specials. Greens were two weeks post aeration so still a little bumpy.

Doesn’t get much better than this

The weather, the views, the condition, the challenge, and the greens were excellent but fast. Lot of tall pines and some were in the middle of the fairways but it just added to the challenge. The play was slow but you don’t mind so much because it gives you a chance to take in the breath taking views and the lovely weather in the summertime. Not really much trouble at all if you keep your ball in the fairways. As a 16 handicapper I shot 91 and enjoyed the round more than the last 15 played elsewhere
