Welcome To Enchanted Golf

|Pueblo de Cochiti Golf Course|
Not a single man-made structure interrupts this Robert Trent Jones Jr. design, and it’s become known as one of the prettiest in the state. Pueblo de Cochiti is a spectacular high-desert course that carves its way delicately through the natural landscape and is surrounded by cedar trees and pinon and ponderosa pines. Prepare for some rollicking changes in elevation. Open year-round.
|Sandia Golf Club|
Stretching from 4,900 yards to over 7,700 yards from the back tees, the Sandia Golf Club will challenge and delight golfers with a memorable layout routed through the rugged high-desert landscape. The course features strategically placed bunkers, challenging green complexes and panoramic views of the Sandia Mountains and greater Albuquerque area. This Scott Miller design ranks right up there with his other well-known efforts at Coeur d’Alene Resort in Idaho and We-Ko-Pa in Scottsdale, Ariz. The course complements the four-star Sandia Resort and Casino. Open year-round (weather permitting).
|Santa Ana Golf Club|
Santa Ana Pueblo
Woven through the desert along the Rio Grande, Santa Ana Golf Club (located 25 minutes north of Albuquerque) is surrounded by the grandeur of the Jemez Mountains to the west, the Sangre de Cristos to the north, and the Sandia Mountains immediately east, offering a spectacular view of the 10,000-foot Sandia Peak. Santa Ana is a hybrid of a links-style design fused with target-style golf for which most desert courses are known. Open year-round.
|Twin Warriors Golf Club At The Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort & Spa|
Santa Ana Pueblo
Named after the two warriors who led the Santa Ana people to settle on the banks of the Rio Grande, the Gary Panks-designed Twin Warriors Golf Club is 18 holes of stunning high-desert, championship golf routed in and around 20 ancient cultural sites of previous habitation and activity. The course has beautiful grassy knolls and ridges dotted with juniper and pinon pines that define the vast Santa Ana reservation. Recently, Twin Warriors (located 25 minutes north of Albuquerque) was added to the 100 Greatest Public Courses list. Open year-round.
|University of New Mexico Championship Course (South)|
The Championship Course boasts fairways that stretch out long and wide, bobbing up and down, right and left—all factors that make it difficult to reach the tricky greens. Stray shots land in the sparse, rough, loose sand, water or sagebrush. Like its name suggests, this place is well known for hosting the 1950, 1976 and 1992 NCAA Division I Men’s Golf Championships as well as the 1998 NCAA Championships. Open year-round.
