Welcome to the New Mexico Tech Golf Course, home of the Elfego Baca Shootout.

Enjoy the challenge of the New Mexico Tech Golf Course, located 73 miles south of Albuquerque on the New Mexico Tech campus in Socorro, New Mexico. 

The golf course is an uncrowded 18-hole, championship layout of rolling hills, dramatic elevation changes, and dynamic views of the Rio Grande valley. GOLF DIGEST magazine named us “one of the 10 best public courses in New Mexico, and one of America’s 500 best places you can play.”

The tree-lined fairways serve as the site for the Elfego Baca Shootout, during the first week in June and the Annual NMT Presidential Golf Tournament in mid-September.
