Albuquerque Golf

Pinon Hills

We welcome you to Old Town Albuquerque and to some of the most unique and amazing courses in the United States. Albuquerque has a glorious year-round climate that lends itself perfectly to playing golf. Weather is a key variable for a golf vacation, and Albuquerque has some of the most reliable weather conditions in the country, with 310 days of sunshine and an average annual high temperature of 70 degrees. The city golf courses are open 364 days of the year, weather permitting, and executive courses are always open to the public doing tournament play when the 18 holes course is closed. Albuquerque's prime golf season is April to October, which is one of the longest playing seasons among major golf destinations. The shoulder months are often outstanding as well, but can be less predictable. Still, with an average winter high near 50 degrees and frequent sunny blue skies, golfers are out on the courses almost every day during the winter off-season.

Differences in course elevation can affect temperatures and weather conditions, sometimes significantly. Summer highs in Albuquerque, at 5,500 feet in elevation, average near 90 degrees, with very low humidity and cool mornings that start out near 62 degrees. Mountain courses, including Paa-Ko Ridge on the east side of the Sandia Mountains, have a slightly cooler average high temperature of 84 degrees in June, July and August; mornings start out around 50 degrees.

Golf Digest and Golf Magazine have ranked several of Albuquerque's public courses among the best in the country for good reason. Our forested mountains, lush river valleys and high desert plains combine to make central New Mexico a dream come true for golf course designers. From desert links to parkland to mountain courses, we offer arguably the most diverse golf experience available in one area.
