  • Our18-Hole championship layout offers two distict nine-hole experiences.  The front nine play alongside---and over---the Rio Grande, offering wetland habitat rich with native plants and wildlife. The  back nine takes golfers through pine, aspen and cottonwood trees; stunning rock formations; and landscape thick with wild rose, gooseberry and vibrantly-colored wildflowers. It's along the back nine that golfers meet the challenge of dramatic elevation changes and tee shots that feel as though they're being taken from the very edge of the earth. The back nine also border Rio Grande National Forest and follow alongside the serene Alder Creek, which flows into the Rio Grande.
