We played this course 2 times this week. It was 94 one day and 96 the next but it was still a lot of fun. Course is in good shape. No one was out since it was so hot so play was quick.

Beautiful and well-designed course through the desert. Fair tee boxes for all abilities. Wide fairways are moderately bunkered. Very nice clubhouse with bar and dining facilities. This course seems sparsely played, probably due to the location, but is a diamond in the rough.

With a rather limited menu, this restaurant has much improved under new management. Weather permitting, sit out on the deck and enjoy your food while overlooking the beautiful golf course. Located in the small desert town of Elephant Butte, NM, the green manicured turf is...More
