This is my 'home' golf course. I am a member of the 'Champions Club' which gives some discounts and is worth looking in to. The course is very accessible from Interstate 25.
The course is nicely laid out for the terrain. Not many trees as this is the desert, but nice contours, water, well (or poorly, depending on how you look at it) bunkers and a few holes with native vegetation belts right through the fairway. If you a 275+ driver, go for it, but you might want to consider laying up.
I have never had a problem with the staff. They are fast and attentive. The course is usually quite well maintained, but again remember this is the desert and sometimes mother nature leaves some holes a bit dry. The course itself if somewhat elevated so you get incredible views of the Sandia Mountains and can see the city as well.
Unless you are a dead on straight driver, you may want to bring some extra balls. There are lots of places that you would not even consider walking in to and yes, the occasional rattle snake. Always be sure to have a club in your hand when you wander off the course.
The carts are all in great shape and all have GPS. The clubhouse restaurant and the turn house have good food. Be sure to order your food at the turn house with the GPS system when it asks. They used to always have hot dogs and brats ready to go, but now they do them to order. This is adjacent to the Sandia Casino and hotel which has other dining options.
The best part is the rate. $65 (incl cart) for members and $75 for non-members for prime tee times. Includes unlimited use of the practice areas. I have golfed all over the US and nothing comes close to this for value. This would easily be a $100+ course anywhere else. And sometimes it is quiet enough that they will send you off as a twosome if that's all you have. When I have played here on a particularly hot summer day, the Marshall will drive around with a cooler of free bottled water. And yes, they do have on-course beverage service.
