This course sits at the foothills of the Jemez Mountains and is probably one of the most scenic courses in the Southwest. It is a spectacular high desert design that is carved delicately into the natural landscape and surrounded by cedars, pinyons and ponderosa pines. No structures are built on the course and no homes or busy roads are nearby. Elk are seen in the wintertime coming down from upper elevations to feed on the greens. The front nine is walkable, but the back nine is hilly and makes for a workout, especially at the course's 6,000-foot elevation. Thanks to the elevation, however, it is possible to reach hole #17, a 503-yard, par 5, in two with a mid-iron. The downhill putts can be treacherous on the fast, undulating greens. "Golf Digest" rated this course as the 5th "Best Public Course" in the state for 1996. In addition, "Golf Digest" rated this course 47th under the category of "America's Top 75 Affordable Courses" in their 1996 list of "America's Best Golf Courses Everyone Can Play." In the category of "Top 75 Public Courses" it was rated 4th for 1990. The same publication ranked it the 4th "Best in State" course for 1996-97, and the 7th best for 1997-98.

|This course has to be the most improved course in NM. Totally redone course, challenging but still open enough to stay out of trouble. Has a little of everything and it is in GREAT SHAPE!!!|
