For golf in New Mexico, this is one golf course you can't miss. As you tee off on the first hole, a 150 - foot vertical drop welcomes you onto The Lodge golf course. And that's just the beginning. At 9,000 feet above sea level, the terrain is as challenging as it is beautiful. Governed by the Scottish tradition of playing different tees and separate flags on each hole. this dramatic nine - hole golf course, when played twice, becomes a challenging 18 - hole round. The golf course is open seven days a week, April through October. we recommend that you call ahead for tee times.
