  • Wow! What an experience all the way around. From the service the minute you arrive on property to the scenic views on almost every hole, no wonder this is NM's top ranked golf course. They do the little things right. Your golf bags are shuttled down to the staging area, each guest is welcomed and shuttled down to the golf shop from the parking lot, the outside staff makes you aware of where everything is located, and last but not least, the Head Pro even took us out to our starting hole and gave us some advice for how to approach the golf course. This is a must play if you are ever in the Albuquerque area.
  • I played there today and the course and surrounding scenery is spectacular. The staff was friendly and helpful but I was shocked at their rates!! $200 per player mid week!! Their price is way, way out of line for the New Mexico market. I bet that they will experience a 60% percent decline in rounds played! When they told me the rate I thought it was for 2 players. If my wife had not been with me to just ride and look at the views I was walking out of there! So buyer beware this place is way out line for their market!
  • Pros: Awesome course with incredible scenery. The best that I have played in NM for sure. The original #4 has an incredible green complex that is about 80 yards long. Cons: I first visited Paako Ridge in 2014 and the rates were reasonable ($110/round). Apparently, new owners have decided to try and exploit the travelling golfer and charge upwards of $200/round. So a 36 hole day is more than $300. I'm sure the local constituents are upset. Now, instead of coming back, I will likely look to visiting other places on my bucket list (IE: Bandon Dunes, Pinehurst).
  • The course wasn’t bad but the caliber of people working there were appalling and here’s why. A middle aged man was pushing his very elderly father in a wheelchair by the 18th green. They were on the sidewalk so they were in no way damaging the course and they weren’t even talking so in no way were they disruptive. The starter came flying over on his golf cart to rudely tell the man and his father they were trespassing and to leave the golf course immediately! The man said his father was to old to play but still enjoyed just being near the course, to which the starter responded he would call security if they didn’t leave immediately. I’ve worked on golf courses before and while legally this starter was in the right, morally this place disgust me and we will never return. (This happened over a year ago but I just noticed my comment had been deleted so I wanted to let it be known again).
  • A great New Mexico high desert course. Beautiful views on every hole. Challenging and fun!
