“Scenic Golf Course in the middle of nowhere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

They are eventually planning to building housing in this area but for now, it is in the middle of nowhere. However, the scenery is beautiful and the golf course is green but no trees. The staff is friendly and there is a dusk special of $10. Nice club house.

“Excellent New Course In Southern New Mexico”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

The Red Hawk Golf Course opened in the fall of 2012 and is being improved continuously. The staff is very friendly and helpful, bringing you a cart to your car. Green fees are reasonable but ask about special rates in the club house. The course has cool season grass so it is green all year. There are no trees but stay out of the desert. Drives are best in the wide fairways as the rough is rather thick. The course is well bunkered although the sand can be soft. The greens are smooth and fast. They do have a slight problem with golfers not repairing their ball marks. The greens also have false fronts and sides so it is best to hit to the center of the greens until familiar with the course.

A round of golf usually takes 4 hours or less. You can follow with lunch and/or libations in the club house. The club house is not fancy but the food is good and reasonably priced.

All in all an excellent golf experience.

“Too tough”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

They took a perfectly good piece of NM desert and tried to make a golf course out of it.
This property is well designed, constructed and maintained; for low handicap golfers.
If you are a senior or average golfer you may find this course to tough to enjoy.
As a senior golfer I found the sand traps too steep to enter and step out of.
At most greens you had to climb over hills to get to the green and return.
Most tees required climbing hills from and returning to the cart.
In keeping with a strange tradition in golf, they ban carts from access to the fairways on par 3’s.
I have never heard a good explanation for this other than all the other courses do it.
Last comment is they ban carts from the parking lot.
If I have to explain why this is not senior friendly do not read further.
If they want to sell building lots they should consider the buyer.

“Hole in one”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Great course, just a little off the beaten path. Husband made his first hole in one there, and the first one for the course. I wish they would put his picture up with the rest of the group, but we got one of the flags which was cool.
Definately a course to play, but Watch out for rattlesnakes.
