Golf Course

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.”

Player Conduct & Etiquette
Golfers are asked to follow all NM Tech Golf Course policies and rules set forth by the Institution.  Players are asked to repair all ball marks and replace all divots. Players who fail to adhere to any policy, or who willfully damage the golf course or any of its property will be advised that further abuses will result in forfeiture of golf course privileges. Consistent lack of courtesy for other players and actions which may tend to endanger the safety of others on the golf course, such as throwing clubs, driving the ball into groups ahead, etc., may also result in forfeiture of golf course privileges.

Trespassers, dog-walkers, bicycle-riders, joggers, etc. or any unauthorized persons will not be permitted to walk, ride, or rest on the golf course.  We do not allow fishing, swimming, wading, boating, or retreiving golf balls in any of the ponds on the golf course premises.  You may retreive your golf ball from the ponds while playing golf provided you do not impede pace of play.  

Collared shirts are preferred and appropriate golf attire must be worn at all times while on the facility.  Tank tops, muscle shirts, or shirts with large holes, etc. are not permitted.

Golfers are responsible for any or all damage to passing vehicles, parked vehicles, or any damages that occur to another persons property while they are playing golf at the NM Tech Golf Course.
