Pros: Beautiful scenic course, all the previous reviews of seeing turkey and deer are very true.The course is hilly but its easy to navigate from hole to hole if you follow the cart path.There are even a couple of holes with water hazards.
Cons: Course is long. I do recommend getting a cart if possible. Its a seasonal disc golf course located directly on a golf course.
Other Thoughts: Mr Castillo holds an awesome tournament here twice a year. You definitely want to add this course to your list. The course is about 2hrs north of Albuquerque.I cant wait to play it again.

Pros: -Phenomenal setting! In the mountains. Nothing but nature, the sound of leaves rustling, and hairy squirrels running all over the place.
-Challenging holes for every type of player. Diversity!
-Golf carts supplied during tournament.
-Village and golf course staff most accommodating
-Immaculate maintenance. I dont think I saw one piece of trash
Cons: These cons are out of anyone's control for the most part, so take them lightly:
-Can get windy in the afternoon. All 3 times I played here in the fall had fairly windy afternoon (later than 1:00p) rounds.
-It's not open all year round. Only fall/winter/early spring.
-Golf carts not provided if you're not playing in a tourney. I hiked the course once, and would again, but it's not for someone out of shape.
Other Thoughts: I played my best round, and it almost felt like some out of body experience. Everything was perfect, including the course. I would not recommend another course any more than this course at Pendaries.

A Real Players Paradise

Pros: -Astonishingly beautiful course.
-Mix of very long/ very short tees for Pros and Ams.
-Big air on several holes. Love the hang-time.
-Fascinating choices for risk and reward.
-Interesting and evolving Pin Placements.
-Gorgeous drive in and out. A real 'Destination'.
-Deer, Turkeys, distant animal calls: all very cool.
Cons: -Closed all summer and winter.
-No facilities except a few during tournaments.
-A long drive from anywhere (but worth it!)
UPDATE: Pendaries is now open only a few PRECIOUS weeks in april and october. The layout is ON a Ball Golf course, hence the short season
Try to get there: this is a GREAT players course!
Most play centers around the spring and fall tournaments. April's will sell out any day now and is New Mexico's 1st ever A-Tier.
Pendaries is a premier championship course.
The direct route on #1 has a 325' carry. #3 has a 200+' carry to a pin on the berm right above the pond. (Both Am tees have less carry.) However, the 1300' par 5 #8 can be reached in 4 by an advanced player. Pros can birdie it but scores of 8-10 are not unusual either. Although the course IS very long, most players find staying in-bounds to be the main challenge. Casual players can ignore the O.B., and have a mellow 'walk in paradise'.
Players who make the time and bring everything, including their 'A-Game', will be deeply rewarded. Call ahead. Try NMDG on Facebook, or NMDG.org or just google Pendaries. Get prepared and Play This Course!
BTW: This traditional golf resort community has been VERY supportive of us: Please stay off the fragile ball golf greens and be nice to the people who allow us to have this amazing priviledge.

Pros: Its set on the back 9 of an amazing golf course. tones of elevation, wildlife all around you, and the people there are great. There are 2 water holes that do love discs.This course is easy to navigate, and its just a tranquil place to be.
Cons: Again, its on a golf course so it will move in may when the ball golf opens.
Other Thoughts: if you play northern NM, you must find this course.
