The course follows in the tradition of golf’s first and finest links-style courses and was highly rated by both Golf Week and Golf Digest. You'll enjoy a 27-hole championship links-style golf course, five sets of tees on every hole, play from 5,500 yards to 7,400 yards, a 22,000-square-foot Club House, eight lakes, full-service Pro Shop, practice facilities, hospitality quarters, four-star restaurant, and casual bar and grille. 


The Par 72 Championship Course stretches from 5,113 to 7,752 yards and will challenge and delight golfers of all skill levels with a memorable layout routed through the rugged high desert landscape featuring 48 strategically placed bunkers, challenging green complexes and panoramic views of the Sandia Mountains and greater Albuquerque area. The property is located in Albuquerque, New Mexico, approximately 10 miles north of downtown along Interstate 25 at the Tramway exit.


Located south of the University near the Albuquerque International airport, the Championship Course commands a panoramic view of the city and the surrounding Rio Grande Valley. The course offers five sets of tee markers to challenge and enhance the enjoyment of any golfer. The setting offers a nice reprise from the desert commonly found in the southwest and the rolling terrain is superb for enjoying various golf shots. The course rests on the side of a hill and features tree lined fairways. Despite the rolling terrain, the course is walker friendly and features greens that finish near the next tee. It has been ranked among the Top 25 public golf courses in the nation by Golf Digest magazine and has hosted several major tournaments, including PGA and LPGA qualifying events.
