The first view of this golf course is stunning. Situated along the Pecos River, I expected the course to be topnotch, especially for the price we paid - $46 for 9 holes on the Par 3. But from the first tee, my expectations didn't even come close to being met. The tee area was poorly maintained. And as bad as... More

This little course looks like it has seen better days. The drought in the area has no doubt impacted the course and the greens but the beer bottles and trash represent low maintenance or lack of pride in what could be a premier Par 3. The first several holes parallel the lake whose shape resembles more of a river; quite... More

I've been playing LCGC for a few years now and I have seen great changes made on this course. The only big problem is slow play. There are a few retirees that think they own the course and will not let you play through. But most will. And the marshals are quite friendly and helpful with moving play along. The... More

The holes are so small I was tempted to just throw the ball at the green. All of the greens are so domed you have to put it in the hole or your approach rolls away. It was incredibly frustrating and not really fun. But on the up side, you will get lots of practice on your chipping.

My wife and I chose to spend the winter in Carlsbad in 2011 largely because of the "hunch" that the Lake Carlsbad Golf Course would serve as a major part of our recreational desires. We wanted easy access, an attractive course, friendly staff, a driving range and putting green, and we wanted the best price possible. What we got was... More

I began learning to play golf recently. The nine-hole, par three is a good, non-intimidating place to start. I like the views as you play along the river. It's usually not crowded, and it's also surprisingly inexpensive: $5.50 to play through the nine-hole twice. Hard to beat that. The greens could be a little nicer, but considering everything else the... More
