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.

This course is a real treat. My girlfriend and I played a twilight round and had the best time. I've played several courses in and around Santa Fe / Albuquerque...and this one is the very best. Worth the drive from Santa Fe! Enjoy the 17th hole. Wow!

One of my favorite courses in New Mexico to play when I'm here. Challenging, well kept, staff knows their stuff, and the views are fantastic. Not for beginners.

Beautiful track about 40 minutes from Albuquerque up in the mountains. Friendly staff and well equipped course with many amenities. Great views from many of the tee boxes. Would highly recommend this one!

We are somewhat disappointed with public golf courses in pace of play and course condition. We felt we were at a private club at Paako Ridge. The pace of play was excellent, we were neither rushed or slowed by other players. The course was in excellent shape. Greens were fast. The course was as challenging as you could want it... More

Played PaKoo yesterday with a local first timer, a graduate student from Westchestet PA, and a semi retired ? From Durango CO and Coastal CA who had Memberships at several private clubs throughout US! They all spent the day marveling at the course, on all levels and from all Tee Boxes. It is one of the most incredible Golf Courses... More

Yards you will fill your boots, if you choose to play from these tees. Big and tough. T shots look more intimidating than they really are. This course will test you. Enjoy. Would be nice to go back and play the other combinations of nines we played 10-27

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
