We attended a wedding here. The views from the outside patio area are picture perfect! You see the first and the 18th green, beautiful native plants and trees, a lake and the mountains frame this picture so beautifully! We walked in the well stocked golf shop and we had a drink in the bar. I like how you walk up... More

Paa-Ko Ridge is a top 100 US golf course and fully deserves this rating. 27 holes at one of the most scenic courses you can ask for. The courses are above average in difficulty and have outstanding course conditions. There is significant elevation changes and tremendous beauty. Course was well staffed with a marshal, bag attendants and has a solid... More

We (my wife and I) are reasonable golfers with low teens handicap. We're told that this is the best golf course in New Mexico. Was also recommended by some friends so we thought we would try it. Some aspects were great and some were disappointing. For first time and probably only time players the greens I think were not too... More

We played Paa-Ko Ridge Golf Club this past weekend. Mind you, this is a very expensive course...4 of us close to $500.00!! We arrived at the bag drop. There was no one there to help with clubs. Eventually they came and put our bags on the carts. They told us there was cold water in the cooler on the cart.... More

The staff at this place was the most unprofessional group of people I have ever encountered. It started when at the (seemingly very very young) wait staff made me wait, with no one else in line, while they took selfies and discussed their weekend plans, while they seemed to be actively ignoring the paying customer standing in front of them....

Paa-Ko Ridge is an absolute gem. From a visual stand point it is one of the best in New Mexico. From a player prospective it is a great track that will challenge the best players. If you play the tips it is all you can eat. Lots of uphill down hill and side hill lies. The Greens are fast and... More

Fantastic golf venue. Scenic beauty is almost distracting so take your time and enjoy the views as well as the course layout. Challenging 27-hole public course. If possible try to play all 27 holes. This course is a "must play" if you're in the Albuquerque/Santa Fe area. Located on Route 14 - "Turquoise Trail" - the drive between Paa-Ko Ridge... More

My buddy and I began a 3 day / 3 state golf trip here. The course was well manicured, the people were friendly and the round was reasonable ($62pp). I highly recommend it if you're in the area.

because 38 million stars is not available. Whew - what a golf course. I played holes 10-27 (this is a 27 hole layout) and from the first drive at #10 to the last putt at #27 this course did not let up for a minute. Forced carries off the tees? Check. Approach shots that required either finesse or force? Yep.... More

Rated as the best course in New Mexico year over year, Paako Ridge is challenging as well as breathtakingly beautiful and has well-earned this accolade. This 27 hole layout in and around canyons and bluffs, through a juniper and piñon forest, includes numerous elevation changes (altitude ~ 6500-7000 ft), forever vistas all the way to Santa Fe Baldy and the...
