“Great Conditions!”
Tee-off among sand dunes and desert shrubs: an unusual but beautiful course built right into the Western Texas desert landscape.

Stopped here in the late afternoon. Rented clubs and got a quick nine it. The course was not crowded late in the day. Just played the North nine. Course was in good shape. Greens a little bumpy and inconsistent speed. Overall, a very nice desert...More

Stopped to play this course recommended by friends. We found it in great shape. Greens rolled fantastic even though pretty slick. Fairways were OK too in the heat of summer. All staff - pro shop, course and cart drink girl- were wonderful with great attitudes....More

When I played this course soon after it opened, it was one of the most fulfilling golf experiences I'd had. I am very disappointed at the condition of the course now and the changes they've made. Fairways were baked out, and greens were bumpy. I...More

I have played this course several times with friends when I lived in El Paso. Though I am not a regular duffer, I always enjoyed this course in northeast El Paso. Nice challenging holes. Good assortment of water hazards and sand traps. Good long fairways....More

I've came here numerous times and this is one of the best courses in El Paso. And with the recently redone sand traps they're really nice. Fairways and greens are always nice but if you miss the fairway it'll be a tough play. Staff has...More

This golf course is one of the best in the El Paso area. Price was fair. The course is not easy for the average golfer. Anything outside of the fairways will be in the desert and in the brush, which can be very hard to...More

Great course, peaceful surroundings, good price. Front side desert course quite challenging, back 9 a bit more wide open and playable. Great value, excellent conditions.

This course is very affordable and the course is nice. Greens are in great shape, but the fairways are pretty narrow and don't even compare to Butterfield Golf Course.

This course is both Desert Course and Scottish Dunes course. It plays very tough unless you stay in the fairway. Lots of blind shots to the greens and trouble abounds. Stay out of the desert! It's Spring and the grass is just starting to come...More
