New Mexico’s Golf Courses: ‘The Land of Enchantment’

New Mexico’s Golf Courses: ‘The Land of Enchantment’

New Mexico, a state located in the southwest region of the United States, carries in its bosom the best golf courses you can find, especially in the areas around Albuquerque, Santa Fe and Taos. This so-called ‘Land of Enchantment’ offers courses with superbly unique layouts. The area is rich in historical and natural attractions, filled with first-class hotels, casinos, and fine dining, all topped off with perfect golfing weather.

Flying to Albuquerque gets the golf ball rolling. The airport is conveniently located with easy access to the downtown and one of the must-play golf courses, the Championship Golf Course. Located at the University of New Mexico, this course is just a mile away from the airport and ranked by Golf Digest as the number 1 golf course in the state.

Driving northward will bring you to one of golf’s best plays, the Black Mesa Golf Course. Black Mesa was hailed by Link’s Magazine as one of the “Top 10 Most Spectacular Courses in the World” due to its extraordinary artistic design. Each hole in the course offers its own distinct layout, topography, and adventure.

“It is built with a degree of visual intimidation on every hole to challenge a player’s skills, courage, and ability to problem solve. That challenge starts on the first hole, a par four measuring 385 yards from the tips that requires a blind shot over a hillside,” says Director of Golf Tom Velarde.
