Sonoma Ranch Golf Club, Las Cruces, NM

Sonoma Ranch Golf Club, Las Cruces, NM

The Pinon Hills Golf Course is located in Farmington, New Mexico. From its opening in1989, it has been recognized as one of the best desert golf courses by Golf World Magazine. In 2002, Golf Digest rated it as the # 1 municipal course in the nation. It features deep arroyos and wide fairways displaying fantastic desert views. The course is extremely challenging because of limited landing points for the ball. Shots from the tee must be fairly long and accurate. Kenneth Dye designed the course that plays at a length of 7249 yards from the back tees. The course rating is 74 with a slope of 140.

When playing golf in New Mexico’s high country, take awhile to adjust yourself to the altitude or you may feel light-headed and winded. Outside of Albuquerque, some of the best golf in New Mexico is in Rancho De Taos at the Taos Country Club. It is an 18-hole public course. Then go over to Las Cruces at the University Course where they hold many NCAA Tournaments. The course offers large greens and wide fairways. Take time to enjoy the atmosphere found only in New Mexico!!!
