Best Public Golf Courses in New Mexico
New Mexico was shaped by Navajo, Pueblo, and Apache Native American cultures long before the Spanish colonization of the territory in the 1500s. Geologically, land forms in the Land of Enchantment range from the vast, coral colored Chihuahuan desert to solemn mesas to the snow-capped peaks of the Sangre de Cristo and Rocky Mountains with the Rio Grande, Pecos, Canadian, San Juan, and Gila Rivers crisscrossing the state.
New Mexico’s golf courses take full advantage of the state’s topography and terrain as well as preserving some of its ancient cultures. This guide helps find the best public golf courses, casino golf courses, and golf resorts in New Mexico from the Mexican border to the south to the Colorado Rockies on the north border including Black Mesa, Twin Warriors, and Paa-Ko Ridge Golf Courses.
