Snuggled just six miles from the base of Turtleback Mountain and sprawling throughout the wide open landscapes of the high desert, Sierra Del Rio honors the majestic spirit of the wild southwest. Located in Elephant Butte, NM within the 1,000 plus acres of Turtleback Mountain Resort, Sierra Del Rio Golf Course, is an 18-hole championship facility with full amenity clubhouse. Sierra Del Rio is home to the New Mexico Shootout where players such as Nancy Lopez, Natalie Gulbis, and Rosie Jones have challenged the course.

We played this course 2 times this week. It was 94 one day and 96 the next but it was still a lot of fun. Course is in good shape. No one was out since it was so hot so play was quick.

Beautiful and well-designed course through the desert. Fair tee boxes for all abilities. Wide fairways are moderately bunkered. Very nice clubhouse with bar and dining facilities. This course seems sparsely played, probably due to the location, but is a diamond in the rough.

With a rather limited menu, this restaurant has much improved under new management. Weather permitting, sit out on the deck and enjoy your food while overlooking the beautiful golf course. Located in the small desert town of Elephant Butte, NM, the green manicured turf is...More

Holy Cow. What a great golf course. One of the best in New Mexico. I stayed at the Comfort Inn and got a coupon to only play for $45 and it included range balls and a cart. I will be making special trips to just...More
