Was able to get and play Tijeras Creek the day after Christmas. My second time out here. I really enjoy the completely difference nines that you get by playing Tijeras Creek. The front nine more subdued winding through homes and the back nine much more demanding with no homes to speak of.
The conditions of the course were very solid. Tee to green the conditions were above average, we teed off in the morning so everything was wet. I found myself in many of the bunkers this day (ball striking was a bit off) and they all played pretty solid. The fairways were very nice, the ball sitting perfectly if you found the fairway. The rough was hit and miss, some areas pretty thick and grabby and others pretty thin. Greens were medium to fast depending on where you were on the green.
At $86, it's more than I would normally pay for a round of golf but it was a great day with some buddies from work at Tijeras Creek.» Close
