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

Sad to See Courae Condition

We have played the course many times when staying there & it's the only way to play it. Not worth the $75/pp for a couple. Course was not in the best condition. Also, except for 3 holes, we had two to 2 mowers rushing around the entire round. On one hole, we had to wait while a bunker guy was doing fast circles working the bunker. This was early afternoon. Never again.

Challenging track

Being able to shape your shots off the tee is a must. Trees everywhere, including places they probably shouldn't be. If your tee shot is in the short grass 150 yards from green you should NOT have to maneuver your ball around a 150 ft pine tree in the middle of the fairway. Some very unique and exciting holes make for an overall pleasant experience. Course was very dry, but I don't fault the maintenance crew. It's been a very dry season in NM.

Better than past three rounds in three years

The staff was friendlier than times in the past. Did not have to play course with cart path only conditions. Did not feel like they just wanted our money and doing us a favor for taking it as in years past.

Beautifully Magestic Golf

We got an unbelievable rate through GolfNow. The staff was so friendly and welcoming. Special shout out for the Marshall, Layton Black! The carts with the display screens were very helpful since none of the 4 of us were familiar with the course. We loved how it was laid out, and it was in great shape, considering how dry it’s been here. Looking forward to our next round July 4.

Not their fault

Ruidoso really needs rain now. Very dry spell. July hopefully will bring the rainy season. The course will be back to great shape. It’s still worth the money on golf now. If you can play for 60 or less.
