First time playing Used cart Perfect weather

This is a nice, uncrowded public course in the middle of Ruidoso (very convenient location). The greens are in great shape - other than multiple un-fixed ballmarks (probably left by redneck Texans). I must have fixed 3-4 marks per hole - all of them fresh. The woman at the Pro Shop and the Cart Lady were really nice. Pace of play was wonderful. I played by myself and got around in about 2 hours 45 minutes on a cart.

The only thing marring this course is it seems like they just are NOT mowing the fairways and rough with any regularity. Even if I hit a slightly wayward shot (4-5 yards off fairway) I had a hard time finding the ball. I really am not into US Open style rough. And the fairways were so high you got very little roll.

The temperature was around 60 degrees and windy so there were very few on the course. Practically had it to ourselves. The course was in pretty good shape, especially the greens. Fairways were in fair shape but just coming out of winter some ground under repair would be expected. Overall we enjoyed the course and I would recommend it to visitors to Ruidoso, New Mexico.

I seriously question these reviews. I have played or been on this course for a minimum of a month every year for the last four years. Either the people writing the reviews know nothing about golf and courses or they are employees. The cart paths are in terrible condition and the fairways are in the same condition. Lots of weeds, and bare spaces in between. Greens are uniform but slow, mountain style. Other courses in the area have much nicer greens, much faster. I hate to see reviews so mis-leading as these are. This would be a good course for those who golf seldom and the price should be no more than $30 a round. For the current green fee there are several other courses in the area much more worth the price of the green fee if you are truly a golfer.

We were the first ones out so the pace of play was great! I was a little critical about the course condition, but because it is a mountain course it has a lot of wildlife walking on it. I would definitely play it again, I enjoyed the round a lot. The course has a lot of OB areas because it winds through a neighborhood.

This is s good mountain course layout. The front nine is fairly long with wide fairways. Greens were in good condition. Back nine has tight fairways and is shorter. The fairways are in fair condition but needed mowing the day we played. To be fair it had rained a lot in the prior days and the may not have been able to mow. We will play there again.

Greens are very good. Rolls true, a bit slow. Fairways need a bit of care, but what the heck, bump the ball. Lots of up hill and down hill holes. A bit tight with houses very close on some holes to the course. Fun course for the money.

The greens were a little slow and could use a trim but they were in good condition. Liked the layout and the pace of play was perfect. Really only complaint is that there was no water on the course (to drink). It was 90 degrees which is unusual for Ruidoso but with the altitude the water would have been appreciated.

Otherwise, a great round of golf with my son.

I really enjoy playing this course, because it is not overly long but you need to be accurate off tee for some holes. Course was in good condition, considering I played in April and after a tough winter. This course one you take a beginner to advanced player for the pure love of the game. I will definitely be back to play again.

This course is fun, but it is pretty short even from the tips. On most of the par 4s, you can take a hybrid and then a short iron into the green. Since it has started raining again in Ruidoso, the course has improved, but there are still some chunky fairways with strange grasses and weeds that can hide your ball quickly even in the middle of the fairway. I think they are under some restrictions on herbicides due to the proximity of the sensitive water systems in New Mexico. Nevertheless, this is a fun little course with beautiful views and a very, very friendly staff.
