The contract was just won by another company, so this review may be updated in the future. The good thing is the price and the view. The short course is located directly by the river and the 18 hole has beautiful views. The course has...More

This is a 3.25 little course. Played the par 3 this afternoon before the storm. It was inexpensive, carts included. Play 9 or 18 holes for the same price. The greens were in very good shape considering it's a muni course; scenic view along the...More

The first view of this golf course is stunning. Situated along the Pecos River, I expected the course to be topnotch, especially for the price we paid - $46 for 9 holes on the Par 3. But from the first tee, my expectations didn't even...More

The holes are so small I was tempted to just throw the ball at the green. All of the greens are so domed you have to put it in the hole or your approach rolls away. It was incredibly frustrating and not really fun. But...More

My wife and I chose to spend the winter in Carlsbad in 2011 largely because of the "hunch" that the Lake Carlsbad Golf Course would serve as a major part of our recreational desires. We wanted easy access, an attractive course, friendly staff, a driving...More

I began learning to play golf recently. The nine-hole, par three is a good, non-intimidating place to start. I like the views as you play along the river. It's usually not crowded, and it's also surprisingly inexpensive: $5.50 to play through the nine-hole twice. Hard...More
