    Read about the troubles the course had a few months ago and wanted to update.Just played here this past weekend and the tees and greens are in great shape. The fairways 95%. Bunkers are still not good...  more »

    I have been playing Black Mesa for 8 years. The course had water issues 2 or 3 years ago and just about lost all of the fairways and greens. That was the low point. Now the course in regaining the cla...  more »

    Do not believe the pics you see! This course is in deplorable condition! The fairways are junk with very little grass and what is there is burned out. The traps have nothing but hard dirt and standing water. Notice on the door said they had a washout but the condition tells me otherwise. Everything points to a complete lack of care. Sprinkler covers broken all over the course, cart paths like rock crawling, and, despite the claim of washout, nobody was working on the sprinkler system to even fix or replace the broken covers. Even at $42 this course was NOT worth the price. While the views are great, which is the only reason for the 2 stars, the course itself is in abysmal condition!! You can get views in many places, this is NOT a place to play golf.

    My friend and I came out in May to play it. The fairways are nothing but weeds. I have never seen a course so poorly maintained. The course layout is fun but. No water on the course and no cart girl.

    Great track. Unbelievable views and good condition. Takes plenty of creativity. Btw Ed (other review) probably played the wrong tees. Pretty high slope so make sure you play the correct tees for your handicap and use the pro tips on the GPS.

    tough course, walked it the first time, never again. great challenge, back nine very secluded and peaceful

    Played in early November. Probably should have gone to Paako or Twin Warriors or Sandia. No cafe or snack bar open, and the pro shop guy says "welcome to winter golf in New Mexico". It was 60 degrees that day. Also, no cart girl. Then when I asked if I could fill my water bottle at the turn, he directed me to the bathroom sink. Driving range lacked very many balls. Dusty cart paths only. Beautiful views. For an indian course, I would have expected greener. Nice greens. Very challenging course. Amazing views.
