Sierra del Rio

May 13th, 2010

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 daily fee facility with full amenity clubhouse.

In New Mexico we appreciate our natural resources—both for their beauty and for the life they give. For this reason, we have designed a course that is unique not only in its play design but also in it limited impact on our environment. At Sierra Del Rio, we use environmentally safe organic products throughout the property to protect our water shed and abundant wildlife.

Our beautiful southern New Mexico climate combined with our draught tolerant grasses allows the course to maintain its green coloring throughout the year. The organically grown greens are covered with bent grass that offers some of the smoothest putting surfaces found in this part of the country.

At Sierra Del Rio, we believe that playing golf should be a beautiful experience—one that allows you to immerse yourself in a game among a unique design of greens, fairways, and teeing grounds but also one where you will bask in the natural and abundant landscapes that quietly and majestically surround your play. Our design team has created a premier course with 18 memorable holes while preserving the natural environment that has existed here for ages.

If you want to get away, Angel Fire is a great place to play. Pack large, bring lots of gear, and don’t forget the toys.

Angel Fire is a tranquil, year-round resort smack dab in the middle of wooded wilderness and a high mountain valley. The Wheeler Peak range, New Mexico’s highest, is outside your front door. And of course, we all feel it’s one of the nicest places on the planet. Angel Fire’s #1 industry is tourism, with our tranquil mountain community attracting thousands year round. Winter brings snow sport fans to have fun skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling or sledding, while our cool summers attract golfers, fishermen (and fisherwomen), hikers, mountain bikers, horseback riders, 4-wheelers, and families just wanting to get away from the heat and hectic pace of city life. If you’re talking pure Angel Fire, you’re talking pure moments.
