One of my favorite things about Las Cruces is that it is an outdoor playground, and with over 350 days of sunshine, the playground is almost always open. Some people love the trails, of which there are plenty for both hiking and biking. Others like the paths that are weaved around the city, but a question that I get asked regularly by people looking to move to Las Cruces is, “How are the golf courses?” The good news is that they are great and there is no shortage of choices when you want to play. Here are some highlights about each one.
The New Mexico State University Golf Course opened for play in 1963 and is located on the beautiful campus of New Mexico State University here in Las Cruces. It is a championship level 18hole course, and is open to the public year round. Currently the course is available for Foot Golf (basically golf with a soccer ball where your foot is the club) daily after 3pm.
Red Hawk Golf Club is another popular option in Las Cruces. Each hole has five sets of tees, with yardage ranging from 5,502 to 7,523, so it’s just right for all players. The course is noteworthy for its linksstyle features, its rolling and generous greens, and its challenging yet spacious design. This beautiful course was designed by Ken Dye, a member of the American Society of Golf Course Architects and he has designed many wellknown golf projects both nationally and internationally.
The final public golf course in Las Cruces is the Sonoma Ranch Golf Course. This course is a pleasure for golfers of any skill level to play. It will challenge you, but no matter how your round goes you get a relaxing, picturesque backdrop. Sonoma Ranch gives you everything you need to challenge yourself and improve your game.
The fourth and final course that Las Cruces has to offer is a private one, Picacho Hills Course. This course is part of the beautiful and exclusive Picacho Hills Country Club, and has a reputation for beauty and fairness as well. Perhaps the most difficult thing about this course is having the opportunity to play it.
At the end of the day, these are all great courses. I suggest you try them all and see which one fits your style of play the most. Even a bad day on the course is a pretty good day. Already have a course you love and need help finding a home that is closer to it. I’d love to help you find one, and even help you get the best value for your current home.
