This is a typical golf course in a Mesa environment. Great views, some pretty holes. The course was in good condition, they'd recently sprayed for weeds/dandelions in the fairways which were all dying off so you moved your ball a little to hit it. Greens rolled average, not quick. We paid senior price for $57 per player. Green Chile burger... More

By friends and I recently took a road trip from Denver down to Santa Fe. On our last day there we played a round of golf at Black Mesa. I have played at some pretty cool courses in the past and this experience definitely blew them all away! The course was unique, fun to play, and offered unbelievable views of... More

greens were aerated this week so will be good soon. Fairways are fine, not plush. I'd go back again tomorrow if I could. For the views and stupendous challenges. The back top of the roof of your cart gives the yardage. Casual and well, I just really enjoyed this course today. But pick a tee marker one up, or three... More

Like many reviewers, I was disappointed the course was allowed to decline to such a point as it did last year. For whatever reasons, it was reported to me by two different staff members when I played the course on March 9 that they did not water last year. The course suffered mightily as a result. However, this month when... More

Santa Clara Indians own the land and now own the course. Played it last weekend and the course was not in very good shape, but have to realize it is only mid March. My wife and I could not believe they raised the price up to $67 with a cart up $20 from last year. What bothers us the course... More

The design of this golf course is excellent, the strategy chosen off the tee had a significant impact on your score. I also like the feeling of isolation as the routing has few holes that are side by side. The conditions were excellent. The course was challenging but fair - multiple plays are necessary to post your best score here.... More

I come to Santa Fe every couple of years and Black Mesa had been one of my favorite courses anywhere. I played it this morning at a steeply discounted rate. However, conditions were so bad that I quit after 9 holes. Even the tee boxes are overgrown in some places. Steps up to one tee box were covered with growth.... More

My wife and I played this course in early September 2014 during our trip from Taos to Santa Fe. We found the reception very friendly. The course was in very good condition, especially the greens. The scenery was outstanding. The green fees were very inexpensive for a top course, and the course was relatively empty. It is a tough and... More

A friend had been raving about this course for a few years so I decided to join him this year and make the trip over from Utah. I knew ahead of time that the course has suffered and wouldn't be in top condition. No doubt, the layout is fantastic. Yes, some of the greens and places in some fairways are... More

I played this course this past Sunday, and no matter how much they are discounting the rates it's not worth it! Big brown patches on the greens. Only 2 of the greens, in my opinion, are puttabe. I'll play at Towa where the course is in good condition and the staff is friendly.
