New Mexico is home to the famed Santa Fe Trail golf scene. Travelers seeking some of the best golf in the country, with Santa Fe’s breathtaking views as the backdrop, will love cruising to the trail’s eight world-class courses. If you can’t make it to all eight courses on your journey, the following are a few of our favorite recommendations along the trail.
Black Mesa Golf Club — Espanola
Few courses in the country are as breathtaking as Black Mesa. The 18-hole course offers a unique variety of holes that are carefully designed to showcase the area’s dramatic scenery. Ridgelines, arroyos, valleys, canyons and rocky ledges all play a part in the beauty and difficulty of the course. It’s not just a challenging and fun place to play golf, it’s a course with natural beauty that will leave you in awe from start to finish. A full-service pro shop, innovative GPS golf carts and an ideal location less than 20 miles north of Santa Fe make this a must-visit course.
Twin Warriors Golf Club — Bernalillo
Twin Warriors was ranked the 49th best public golf course in the country and the third best New Mexico golf course by Golf Digest. You’ll understand why it is so esteemed when you arrive in Bernalillo and see the high desert, championship course. Views of the Sandia Mountains, waterfalls, grassy knolls, rocky ridges and ancient cultural sites turn your game of golf into a full-fledged adventure. The course is just 22 minutes north of Albuquerque and 45 minutes southwest of Santa Fe, so you can easily make an RV resort near the city your home base.
Paa-ko Ridge Golf Club — Sandia Park
The Paa-ko Ridge Golf Club was rated the best new course in America when it opened its doors in 2000, and it certainly hasn’t lost its appeal. The award-winning and challenging 27-hole public golf course offers stunning views of the Sandia Mountains. Visitors enjoy a fully-stocked pro shop, a grill with full-service bar, practice facilities and a number of other amenities to enhance an already rich golfing experience.
