Tee-off among sand dunes and desert shrubs: an unusual but beautiful course built right into the Western Texas desert landscape.

Stopped to play this course recommended by friends. We found it in great shape. Greens rolled fantastic even though pretty slick. Fairways were OK too in the heat of summer. All staff - pro shop, course and cart drink girl- were wonderful with great attitudes....More

When I played this course soon after it opened, it was one of the most fulfilling golf experiences I'd had. I am very disappointed at the condition of the course now and the changes they've made. Fairways were baked out, and greens were bumpy. I...More

I have played this course several times with friends when I lived in El Paso. Though I am not a regular duffer, I always enjoyed this course in northeast El Paso. Nice challenging holes. Good assortment of water hazards and sand traps. Good long fairways....More

Great course, peaceful surroundings, good price. Front side desert course quite challenging, back 9 a bit more wide open and playable. Great value, excellent conditions.

This course is very affordable and the course is nice. Greens are in great shape, but the fairways are pretty narrow and don't even compare to Butterfield Golf Course.

This course is both Desert Course and Scottish Dunes course. It plays very tough unless you stay in the fairway. Lots of blind shots to the greens and trouble abounds. Stay out of the desert! It's Spring and the grass is just starting to come...More

The Course was in great shape and the overseeding was excellent. The sand traps acutally now have real sand and no gravel on the East/ West courses. The food is very good and the coubhouse well attended and supplied. The marshallls were seen often and...More

Never played at this course before. I went and the scenery is beautiful. There is no rough. There is fairway and there is desert. The desert isn't like sand...its like hard clay with tiny rocks. You can play out of it. The course is short...and...More
