Outstanding course layout and conditions. Lives up to it's billing as a must play. Would have been 5 star but for the rude pro who forgets his job includes serving the patrons. Excellent burger from the grill on the patio makes the day complete.

I visited Paa-Ko Ridge over a 4 day weekend golf trip. We played 99 holes over the 4 days and being my first visit, I will definitely return again. The course has 3 nines, 1-18, I believe was the original course, and 19-27 was built later over slightly different terrain. We caught amazing weather for August with highs around 80... More

Well worth the drive out here. Have played most courses in the ABQ area and this is by far the best. We played PAA-KO and Twin warriors this same weekend and we would come back to Paa-no every chance we get. Greens are pretty tough. This course is playable for most golfers but it will test even the most talented.

Loved the views. Greens were in excellent condition. Weather was cooler than most days and perfect end to our golfing tour in NM.

The golf coarse was very good but the golf Marshall was yelling at folders for NO reason...no other groups were behind these guys and he was just going off about nothing! We heard him several tees over...really need to get rid of that guy...even his own staff says he goes on and on being rude to players on the coarse... More

Good service, great condition of the entire golf course and good food in the restaurant makes for a great day. Drove down from just north af Santa Fe. Well worth it. Best I have played in New Mexico so far. Will return.

I was recently in Albuquerque and took the opportunity to play a round of golf at the Paa-Ko Ridge Golf Club. The course continues to get better and better each year. I had had the opportunity to play the course quite a few times and I enjoy it more every time! The course conditions are excellent with the greens in... More

Paako Ridge Public Golf Course is magnificent. The experience from the moment we stepped out of the car at Bag Drop to the last drop of beer was unbelievable. The course suits both the golfer and the outdoorsman-bring your camera, good walking shoes and enjoy the day. Be sure and listen for the birds.

Recently took a group of 16 to Paako ridge and the experience was incredible. David Moffitt and his entire team did a magnificent job of taking care of us and the golf course is unbelievable. If you are planning a trip to New Mexico for golf, you cannot miss Paako Ridge and the team there, you will be blown away.

Never seem to get around this side of the mountain to golf until recently and was I pleased I did. This is just one beautiful golf course. It has rained pretty well in the past week or so and there was barely a brown spot to be seen. Being in the mountains, the temps were 6-8 degrees cooler than Albuquerque,... More
