The Course was in great shape and the overseeding was excellent. The sand traps acutally now have real sand and no gravel on the East/ West courses. The food is very good and the coubhouse well attended and supplied. The marshallls were seen often and hte pace of play was very good for a scramble..Look at Groupon for discounts.

Never played at this course before. I went and the scenery is beautiful. There is no rough. There is fairway and there is desert. The desert isn't like sand...its like hard clay with tiny rocks. You can play out of it. The course is short...and I played from the tips. Most holes are 385 yards or less. Positioning is key.... More

Painted Dunes is an excellent desert golf course. I was impressed with the excellent conditions of the fairways and greens given the summer season and the drought that El Paso is experiencing. My wife and I rented clubs that were almost brand new and excellent quality. The course had 4 sets of tees making it a challenge for all skill... More

I play golf here every Wednesday, and feel that it's the best priced Golf available in El Paso. My only complaint is that the beverage vendors don't service the Course very well.

I live nearby so I stopped in to ask about advertised lessons. I was told they didn't have anyone to give lessons at this time but they hadn't stopped advertising because they hoped to have someone in the future. I asked about renting clubs and trying it out because I do have a little experience I just wanted to learn... More

I'm a terrible golf player but those I played with pointed out that this course used to be one of the best in the Southwest. It was allowed to deteriorate but is now coming back to its former status

..Very cool spot to play if you just play one course in El Paso. Im not a great golfer, but enjoyed all the rabbits and other interesting wildlife running around. Really great "bang for your buc".

Good layout, nice pro shop, and reasonable prices. It can get crowded during the summer weekend period. A tee time is def. reccommended.
