Golf Course Open from April 1st – October 31st.

For golf in New Mexico, this is one course you can’t miss. As you tee off on the first hole, a 150 – foot vertical drop welcomes you onto The Lodge Golf Course. And that’s just the beginning. At 9,000 feet above sea level, the terrain is as challenging as it is beautiful.

Our golf course is one of North America’s oldest which celebrated its 120th season in 2019. It was established in 1899 and for its first 50 years it was the highest course in elevation in North America at 9,000 feet! There are four others that are now in the USA that top ours by less than 600 feet elevation, leaving ours still the 5th highest in the US!

Governed by the Scottish tradition of playing different tees and separate flags on each hole, this dramatic nine – hole course, when played twice, becomes a challenging 18 – hole round.

The course is open seven days a week, April through October. We recommend that you call ahead for tee times at 575-682-2099 or click the reserve button above to reserve online.

The course has a limited number of carts available for rent. We cannot guarantee an “extra” cart for non-players in your group. Please call and talk with a shop representative to check availability.
