The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The course was well maintained. The scenery was outstanding. Not crowded at all. If you are a golfer, I think you will enjoy the course and atmosphere.

The NM Tech golf course, located on the campus, was both surprisingly interesting and challenging. It is easy to find the golf course, but difficult to locate the pro shop. There are no signs to guide one to the golf course, so it is best to check it out beforehand or arrive early. The pro shop is hidden behind the restaurant—again not obvious.

The fairways are generally wide and the course is also not heavily bunkered. Water, however comes into play on about half the holes, the fairways are tree lined, and there are several severe doglegs. Both tees and greens are often elevated, and the greens tend to be quite fast and small.. While you can rip it off the tee, many holes require some strategic thought and accurate approaches. The scorecard is helpful as it provides a 3-line description of each hole, along with a small plan view.

Both the greens and fairways were in acceptable condition. Folks are friendly (lots of students), and the rates are low. When we played, mid-week, on a beautiful spring day, the course was not crowded.

Arrived early, used a coupon I had found in the Sun Country newspaper. Believe it is a monthly paper. Good for two golfers includes golf cart, range balls, lunch for each golfer up to $5.00 each and golf for 18 holes. The price is $50.00. Just a great deal. The people, who work at the course are very friendly and go out of their way to make you welcome.
