Las Cruces is a golf lover's paradise. With 4-courses in the city, and another 9-courses in the area, you will find yourself up-close and personal with all of varied terrain that we are famous for. Breathtaking mountains, forests, and deserts surround our world-class links.

Year-round golf is not only possible here - it's mandatory, though each season presents its own challenges and benefits. At home in Las Cruces, throughout the winter our cool daytime temperatures are certainly perfect for a comfortable round of golf. With our famous low humidity and "dry heat" golf in the summer here could be an experience you'll never have elsewhere, while the fall offers fresh cool air and the changing colors of the trees on our nearby mountain courses combine for a near-perfect golf experience.
