Los Altos Golf Course in Albuquerque

Sometimes it's hard to play golf when the surroundings are so gorgeous. However, the reason it was hard to play golf yesterday while at the Los Altos Golf Course was because the winds were gusting to 50 miles per hour and it was hard to stay on your feet at times. You could actually watch the wind blow your putt offline as it was approaching the hole, which frustrated Denny to no end.

I must say, however, that the Los Altos Golf Course is a really nice course. It is one of four municipal courses operated by the city of Albuquerque and the city does a nice job of maintaining the courses. While Denny gave up after nine holes due to the high winds, the price for playing eighteen holes with a riding cart is $23.75 for seniors, and it's even less expensive for twilight rates.

Los Altos is has fairly level terrain, two water holes and some sand traps. The greens don't seem to be too tricky but that all changes when the winds are blowing. There are some trees, but you really can't get into too much trouble on this course, so it's great for beginners and those of us who are not so good at the game. All four courses charge the same price, so I guess we'll have to come back to try the other three courses some day. We recommend this one for a pleasant round of golf.
