Wish I could have given 5 😔 Burt was awesome 😎 and so was his choice of merlot 🍷 But Gabby didn’t get my order right or the coffee I asked for. Live music 🎶 and dancing 💃🏼 was great 👍🏻 though.

I always enjoy playing this golf course, it has some interesting challenges. The location is not ideal, but it is a good stopover golf course if you are headed south to Las Cruces. There are homes for rent close to the golf course, so if...More

One of the best in the state and the views are magnificent, the club house is well stocked and the bar is far out

We played this course 2 times this week. It was 94 one day and 96 the next but it was still a lot of fun. Course is in good shape. No one was out since it was so hot so play was quick.

Beautiful and well-designed course through the desert. Fair tee boxes for all abilities. Wide fairways are moderately bunkered. Very nice clubhouse with bar and dining facilities. This course seems sparsely played, probably due to the location, but is a diamond in the rough.
