Best of 2018: New Mexico

The best public golf courses in the state based on golfer ratings and reviews.
The eighth at Pinon Hills Golf Course is the first of back-to-back par 5s.

The yearly Golf Advisor state best-of lists are compiled by analyzing the ratings and reviews submitted by members of our community throughout the year. We use our Golf Advisor Index logic that weights newer reviews and combine it with a course's weighted subcategory averages. Reviews from trusted and active reviewers are weighted heavier than inactive members.

Courses must offer public access and have received at least one review in 2018 to be eligible for this year's list.

I have played all of them except New Mexico State and the course in Hobbs. UNM South is my favorite. However, every one of them are well worth the effort.

Some U.S. cities have frighteningly few public-access courses for its residents. If you like variety, you may not want to live in these metros.
