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

Pretty golf shop, very good food and beverage area, drop dead views on the patio and this course is outstanding in it's condition. Kudos to the super. Upon checking to the... 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

This year we moved our annual golf tournament to Paa-ko Ridge. We just had our wrap up meeting and we all commented on how we had absolutely no complaints from the Sponsors and players. It was a great day! The course was beautiful, food was great and the service professional and friendly. It was a record breaking event for our... More

Still my favorite course that I've played. Pro was a bit snooty. We played twilight at 2 pm and was told we would be paired up with another twosome because they were "overly crowded"... Not an issue. However, 20 minutes until our tee time the marshal found us and asked if we wanted to go off early. We said yes... More

Recently announced visited Paa Ko Ridge with 23 other players. The course layout was great and the service was even better. Don't golf in NM without playing here. 27 holes, liked 1-18 the best

What a course! I've played all over, and this is one of my favorites. Incredible views, but make sure you play from the right set of tees. Definitely not a beginners course, very difficult greens and very long. This is a staple course for golf travelers, and one you don't want to miss out on.
