$ Windy game

Not impressed with the golf course. At least we managed a reasonable price through GolfNow. (Still over priced @ $50.00 US each, and we played at 1200pm. I realize it is 28 November 2022, but the course was in pretty rough shape. The greens were smooth and not overly fast, thankfully, because there are some severe undulations on them. Be aware, there are sand traps aplenty, albeit most were filled with a lot of stones! Some pretty large, I should have taken a photo, I’ve never played on a course with bunkers like those. We just took a drop out of the bunker and played on. Golf cart was pretty dirty, obvious no one power washed it. The course Marshall was very friendly! Pace of play was good, we finished I just under 4hrs. Don’t believe walking the course was given as an option. Too far between some holes anyways. Didn’t have a very good experience with the bar staff a few days prior, as we were doing a recce of the course. Waited 20 min for a hostess to come say hello, after I went inside and asked. Hmmmm. Anyhow, as a tourist, I won’t be returning here and will not recommend this course. I believe they can do a lot better then this. Sorry!

A long dragged out round

The course is getting back to it once great form. However, the drive around marshalls did nothing for the pace of play. The group two groups in front of us had a least 2 plus holes open. The marshall could of easily know they were holding up everyone and said something to them.

Peaceful and Quiet!

What I like about playing in Las Cruces golf courses is that it is peaceful and quiet out there. Sonoma Ranch also has beautiful houses to live at around the golf course. The golf course itself is somewhat challenging and the putting greens are not fast, just a moderate speed when putting. If you have not played out in Sonoma Ranch, I recommend that you play at least once and see for yourself how the course is.

Not happy with the pace of play

My daughter’s school is having their District Tournament at Sonoma Ranch next year, so she wants to play it as much as possible. Never been a favorite of mine. Pace was slooooow. One par 5 had 4 groups on it, of which 2 were waiting on the tee box. Course Marshalls drive around with their head in the clouds, or are on their phones. Took us 5 hours to play and we were all in carts. Really hope the District decides to move the Tournament to NMSU’s golf course.

The greens were in good condition but the fairways were not. I notice too that since I have played last they are letting the native areas grow.

Nice greens

You can tell that lots of work is paying off! The greens are in great shape! This course is finally getting the water it needs. Just a few of the tee boxes need work. Over all good work guy’s

Not coming back

It's been several years since I played this course and will not be going back. The rough in many areas is unplayable. The fairways have MANY bare spots as well as the greens. I hit several really good drives and never found my ball. Never lost so many balls. They need to spend some money on this course.

Better courses in Las Cruces

Spent a lot of extra time on the course because the groups in front of me were playing from the tips. They should have been playing from the Whites or even the Woman’s tee. Spend your money and your time elsewhere

Tee Box Condition

It was nice to see that they have started to establish a grass hitting range but the overall condition of the tee boxes is very poor.
