Mountain golf

Course was in great condition. Pace of play was slow had foursome in front that kept hunting for lost balls no Marshall on course. Took almost 5:00 hours when mentioned in clubhouse didn’t seem to care. Besides that I would play again but I would make sure I knew who was playing in front of me.

Going downhill fast

Played in late June and they said there hadn’t been any rain and the course was dry. That was an understatement. The grass was nonexistent. When the ball landed in the fairway, the dust flew up and the ball went forever. Everything was hard packed and impossible to take a divot. Not that spin would help any on the hard and dry greens. Too bad that this one isn’t taken better care of. It could have been a hidden gem.

Worst conditions ever

Drove 700 miles to play a "resort" golf course. Worst conditions ever played. Front nine fairways were 2 inches thick with yellow and white flowers covering fairways. Rough was 5 inches thick. Hit two balls in fairway and could not find ball. Spent more time looking for balls than enjoying golf. Greens were aeriated, but no sand to fill holes so like putting on a shag carpet with gopher holes. Just luck of draw to make a 4 footer. 2 of the 3 par 5s, had to hit 8 or 7 off tee to keep in fairway due to severe dogleggs. Several par fours, I would say were not a fair test of golf due to ridiculous dogleg angle. Back nine was mowed, but fairways still over inch thick. Course is more design for golfers that average 200 yards or less off the tee. Several tee boxes had no grass , so was hitting off dirt or mud. I understand that it was just open after winter, but starting up a mower and using it would have not hurt the grass and $55 green fee was ridiculous. If I could say a couple of good things about course, it would be the carts were new and head pro was very friendly. Course may improve in another month or two, but do not play the course in May or June ever.

Worst conditions ever played

Just traveled 700 miles to play a "resort" golf course. Worst conditions I've every played. Front nine fairways weres 2 inches thick with yellow and white flowers covering the fairways. Rough was 5 inches thick. Lost two balls that went in middle of fairway. This course is more for golfers that average 200 yards or less off the tee. 2 of the 3 par fives, had to hit 8 or 7 iron off tee to keep it in what were called fairways. Greens were aeriated but no sand to fill holes, so like putting on small gopher holes. Duck poop all over one par three. I understand the course had just open after winter, but no reason not to mow grass. Back nine was mowed, but still fairways were one inch high and rough was still 5 inches. Spent more time looking for balls than enjoying a round of golf. I'm a 6 handicap player and thought several par 4's were not a fair test of golf due to severe doglegs. Maybe conditions will improve in a month of so, but a $55 green fee now is ridiculous. I know I could have not played, but driving all that way, I expected a course to be at least playable. This was not. Many greens had bare spots and of course trying to make a 4 foot putt was just a luck of the draw. 50% of tee boxes had no grass, so standing in dirt and mud. If I could say one good thing about the course, it would be the golf carts were new and the pro there was very friendly.

Awesome

Course is great. Club selection is crucial. I myself average about 220 yards off the tee but here I was getting an extra 30 yards.

Lovely mountain course

Pendaries is a great mountain course. The greens are difficult and in great shape. There are a few places in the fairways that are dry and grass is sparse.

back after two years

Played this course two years ago and fairways and greens were in great shape. The fairways looked a little beat up this year and some of the greens had some die off places. Still enjoyed the play and well worth the trip and fee. Staff was very nice.

Fun mountain golf

Pendaries is always a fun day trip from Angel Fire to play mountain golf. This year the lack of rain has been hard on the fairways and the grass is sparse. With more rain in July those conditions should improve. Greens except for one of them were in good shape. Friendly staff and local people. Beautiful drive over and back.

Food expensive

Charging for lettuce tomatoes and pickles on a burger was outrageous. Staff was friendly but overpriced food.
