Golf is a good pastime for any individual, irrespective of age. But those who are retired have the advantage of being able to play whenever they want. And golf not only keeps seniors busy, it can keep them fit, too. Seniors in Santa Fe, NM have plenty of golf courses to choose from. Here are some of the best:
Though it is a public course, Marty Sanchez is one of the best in Santa Fe. Providing a spectacular panoramic view of both the Jemez and Sangre de Cristo mountains, the golf course itself is built on a picturesque high-desert landscape.
Marty Sanchez Links de Santa Fe is an 18-hole championship golf course with several additional features including an all-grass driving range, putting area and practice fairway for the beginners. The fees are also very reasonable and the staff is very friendly.
Located in the scenic Pojoaque (pronounced Po-Walk-Eh) Valley, Towa Golf club provides a different delight to golfers. The fairways of Towa Golf Resort are challenging enough that a rookie golfer will be sorely challenged. The resort consists of three separate 9-hole golf courses and provides exciting playing conditions all year.
Quail Run Golf Course is the closest to downtown Santa Fe. It provides 9-hole par 32 fairway to all those golfers who want to play. Quail Run Golf Course has a very reasonable fee structure, too. Even if you don’t have your own golf gear, the course also has rental clubs. Quail Run Golf Course is not open for the whole year, however, you can play there from the start of summers until the end of fall.
Las Campanas is just outside of Santa Fe, with spectacular views of the mountains to the east and west. The club boasts that it has one of the highest elevation fairways in the Southwest at 7,000 feet. Sunrise and sunset are among the most breathtaking in New Mexico, which is saying quite a lot.
