Fantastic golf venue. Scenic beauty is almost distracting so take your time and enjoy the views as well as the course layout. Challenging 27-hole public course. If possible try to play all 27 holes. This course is a "must play" if you're in the Albuquerque/Santa Fe area. Located on Route 14 - "Turquoise Trail" - the drive between Paa-Ko Ridge... More

My buddy and I began a 3 day / 3 state golf trip here. The course was well manicured, the people were friendly and the round was reasonable ($62pp). I highly recommend it if you're in the area.

because 38 million stars is not available. Whew - what a golf course. I played holes 10-27 (this is a 27 hole layout) and from the first drive at #10 to the last putt at #27 this course did not let up for a minute. Forced carries off the tees? Check. Approach shots that required either finesse or force? Yep.... More

Rated as the best course in New Mexico year over year, Paako Ridge is challenging as well as breathtakingly beautiful and has well-earned this accolade. This 27 hole layout in and around canyons and bluffs, through a juniper and piñon forest, includes numerous elevation changes (altitude ~ 6500-7000 ft), forever vistas all the way to Santa Fe Baldy and the...

I'm a confirmed golf addict. I have played all over the world. Paa-Ko is a very nice course and worth your time and money. It's a fair course. Fun to play and the scenery is great. If you are in the area, don't miss this one.

Make sure to bring your phone or camera, there are Breathtaking views of the surrounding area and mountains on almost all of the holes! The course has a challenging layout with fast and tiered greens. Play the appropriate tees as there can be long carries. The clubhouse has great breakfast, food and beer options. Super friendly staff, great practice facilities... More

Really challenging!! This is a truly beautiful course, however it is also one of the most difficult to play. Lots of carry off the tee. Semi-private course, beautiful condition, so fairly expensive

This is a great venue, but extremely challenging. Expect great course conditions, but difficulty on most shots. Most holes require a forced carry over waste areas, avoidance of deep greenside bunkers, and mastery of slippery putting surfaces. If you manage all of that, you are on your way to a great score. If not, you will still enjoy the wonderful... More

The Club House offers a great breakfast at a reasonable price. Made to order food has never disappointed us on 6 visits. The Course is Beautiful and Very Difficult!! We are 10 Handicap golfers, but must pay attention to every shot. Greens are lightning fast with many undulations. Rough was very "penal" on our last trip. But the Course is... More
