Joined a group of ladies from Elephant Butte Lake RV Resort for their monthly event. The service, food and ambience on the patio was awesome. We had a lovely time.

Beautiful layout, course seedy
Oct 2019 • Friends
I’ve been playing Sierra del Rio Golf Course on vacation for years and always enjoy the well thought out 18 hole layout with beautiful vistas of the Elephant Butte part of the Rio Grande. There are a variety of tees for different skill levels and challenge. The course is never boring, with ups and downs, twists and turns, lakes, desert, arroyos, and sand traps. The paved cart paths are in good shape, and the greens are well cared for (they had recently been punched). But the fairways and tees have occasional bald spots and marshy areas, and the sand bunkers are so seedy that some have more grass in them than the tees. The golf pro even told us to take free relief within the bunkers. I couldn’t even rake without pulling up grass. I know the city of Elephant Butte is trying to bring the course up to its previous best on a limited budget, and it’s coming along.
They have a bar and some food service. Green fees are $42 on weekends with lower rates for weekdays, seniors, military, juniors, etc. So it is fairly priced for a New Mexico top 10 course.
There are plenty of hotels and motels, restaurants, hot mineral springs, Elephant Butte Lake and the river within a 15 minute drive. So lots to enjoy besides golf.
I recommend this course and will be back.

Sep 2019
Eggs were soggy, hashbrowns were from frozen. Coffee was weak....fruit salad was from can.....hard time eating any of it !
Only went there as there are not many options to choose from.

The server was excellent...she did her best to accommodate.

The golf course tucked away in the recess of T or C is worth the drive. The condition of the course is matched only by its layout which requires a strategic approach on each hole. The value based on the green fees is exceptional.

I always enjoy playing this golf course, it has some interesting challenges. The location is not ideal, but it is a good stopover golf course if you are headed south to Las Cruces. There are homes for rent close to the golf course, so if you want to enjoy a quiet weekend, this is a good option. The bar, restaurant, and pro shop are very nice.

Fabulous Golf Course
Jul 2018 • Family
We were vacationing at the lake and had heard about the course from friends. Played in the afternoon the staff was very nice and friendly. The course was magnificent well kept and the greens were some of best that I have played on in the last ten plus years.The views were awesome and the fees were very reasonable. We will definitely return to play again. I would recommend if you are in the area give this course a try. Challenging but not super hard but lots of fun.
