Nestled in Northern New Mexico’s Española Valley with views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Black Mesa Golf Club’s course challenges with dramatic elevation changes, seasonal weather conditions, and scenery of such extraordinary beauty it threatens to distract the most focused golfer.
Whether you’re putting for birdie in the winter sunshine with a view of the Santa Fe Ski Mountain above or teeing off in the new greenery of the Spring, Black Mesa Golf Club can challenge the low handicappers, but offers an enjoyable experience for golfers of all levels.
Baxter Spann who can be quoted as saying, “This has been the most interesting and spectacular site I have ever had the opportunity to work with.”

Elevation changes on the course keep every golfer on his or her toes, and it’s a majestic desert golf experience at its best.
