For great golf in the Southern New Mexico desert, there is one top course to play -- Sonoma Ranch. Opened in 2000, this spanking new course offers challenging golf and spectacular scenery amidst the mesquite and brush covered desert. It won a Best New Course nomination from Golf Digest in 2000 and holds a 3-1/2 star ranking in its Places to Play list. "Incredible views ... tough greens ... every hole a challenge," Golf Digest says. Designed by Cal Olsen, an internationally-known architect with courses from Singapore to Canada, the Sonoma Ranch Golf Course is a longish course with rolling hills, strewn with bunkers and best know for its undulating bent grass greens. With five tee boxes, it offers a stimulating challenge for all levels of golfer. Nestled in the heart of the Mesilla Valley, adjacent to the Organ Mountains, there are exceptional views from the tops of the hills. You may even see coyote, doves and other desert wildlife while you play. Feel the desert air and soak up the sun ... there are 350 sunny days a year in the area. Sonoma Ranch has been compared to courses in Scottsdale, AZ, yet it's priced much lower, so it's a better value. It's desert golf New Mexico style, a championship caliber municipal course that ranks among the finest in the Southwest.
