Twin Warriors Golf Course Overview: This golf course is located a bit out of town and feels very remote, in a good way, with the natural New Mexico nature being the centerpiece. The holes golf give enough room so that the player can feel relaxed on most occasions but there are a few real challengers mixed in as well. The best golf holes are reviewed below:
Twin Warriors Course Hole 1: The opening golf hole has a fairly wide landing area for the drive and the second shot needs to clear a desert area. The layup on the second is a little tighter but not overwhelming. The green is angles behind a series of bunkers that provide the most protection from those trying to start with a UGIR.
Twin Warriors Course Hole 2: This par four plays slightly uphill and has an angled fairway even though the hole is fairly straight. More bunkers are at the green complex providing protection.
Twin Warriors Golf Course Hole 3: Heading back downhill, this par four offers nice views but a tough drive. The ideal line is just right of the bunkers on the left but going left is really a bad idea. The second shot is again downhill to a fairly large green that is not too tough to putt.
Twin Warriors Golf Course Hole 4: The signature par three is over a lake and a series of cascading waterfalls to the left; the waterfalls and upper pool are actually more in play than the lake, but the central front bunker is really well placed to grab shots nearly on line. It plays uphill and long as well, making it a challenging par.
Twin Warriors Golf Course Hole 7: Long, but downhill, one must not go left off the tee. The landing area is wide but pinches in from the right for the biggest hitters. The green set between hillsides and shots may funnel in from the right but, again, left is not desirable.
Twin Warriors Golf Course Hole 8: Downhill again, this par five needs accuracy, but if the player can avoid trouble off the tee, there is enough room along the way to make par or better should bunkers be avoided.
Twin Warriors Golf Course Hole 11: This short par four has options. The player can layup with iron or fairway wood to the left and still have a short iron in, or they can try to fly the desert to find the green area, which is roughly a 40 yard diameter circle (including the bunkers and rough around the green itself. So, it's do-able, but dangerous. As one would expect, the green is small, and it is also raised.
Twin Warriors Golf Course Hole 13: This is a difficult, uphill par three with bunkers left (and real bad stuff left of those). The player can bail-out short and right a little, but not a lot.
Twin Warriors Golf Course Hole 14: This hole at the edge of the property feels very remote and the sliver of fairway from the elevate tee box is a nice contrast from the surrounding colors, but it is relatively tight, so attention should be paid to selecting the right club to put accuracy first.
Twin Warriors Golf Course Hole 16: This downhill par five seems fairly straight until it doglegs quite heavily around the hill for the third shot. The key is to leave the second shot in a good spot, but far enough along to give a clear view for the approach to the well-bunkered green.
