Golf Course Layout
Black Mesa Golf Club on the beautiful Santa Clara Pueblo was created utilizing the natural terrain, not bulldozers. This is what leads to the unique and beautiful layout of the course.
The environment at Black Mesa is pure, absent of any man-made distractions. As you enter the site, your first glimpse of the course gives you a taste of this vast, dramatic property.
Designed by architect Baxter Spann, Black Mesa has a wild Irish links look to it, particularly in the spring after a wet winter when the native grasses are leafy and blowing in the breeze.
The course plays through dramatic sandstone ridges with Black Mesa visible from several locations. Each hole features characteristics that make them both strategic and memorable in its own unique way. The layout showcases distinctive bunkering, native arroyos as hazards, and green contouring in keeping with the scale of the natural landforms.
A great course tests both the mind and the body, and this statement holds true for Black Mesa. From the first tee shot, you realize that mental strategy is essential, while the course's expansive fairways and greens allow it to be played more easily than it appears.
"I have been designing courses for more than 25 years," said Spann. "More than any other project, I eagerly anticipated every trip I made to this course, always knowing I would find something new to experience. I hope that golfers will feel the same way about Black Mesa."
