About the course

This course has rolling fairways and undulating greens that will challenge every level of golfer. It is consistently rated as one of the country's top public courses and many consider it to be the best layout in New Mexico. The signature hole is #8, a 248-yard, par 3, which requires a long tee shot to an elevated green past water and bunkers on the right. If you don't nail the green, "you'd better have a deft short game," says the local pro. "Golf Digest" rated this as the 5th "Best in State" course for the years 1995 through 1998. The same publication awarded it 27th in the category of "Top 75 Affordable Courses" for 1996. In addition, "GOLF Magazine" rated it 54th among the "Top 100 Courses You Can Play in the U.S." for 1998. There are several areas on the course where you can see all of Downtown Albuquerque. The University also has a nine hole course with a separate pro shop, call (505) 277-4146. For many years up until 1990, this club hosted the NCAA menís and ladies' tournament.
