This renowned course has been recognized with numerous awards, including being named the one of the “Top 25 Casino Golf Courses in America” by Golfweek. It is located on the property of the Sandia Resort and Casino owned and operated by the Pueblo of Sandia.

The location is conveniently located approximately 20 minutes north of the Albuquerque Airport. Tee times begin at 12:30 p.m.  This year it will not be a shotgun start so some provisions may be made for later tee times based on travel constraints – please coordinate with the event coordinator, Steve Rowe, directly at 720-539-6495 or steve.rowe@hdrinc.com


*Each player hits a tee shot on each hole and then everyone plays from the spot of the best shot of all four people in their group.  Play continues in this manner for each subsequent shot.
