Santa Fe, New Mexico

Located on the Pueblo of Pojoaque only 12 miles north of the Santa Fe plaza, Towa Golf Resort offers quality golf at an affordable price. PGA Tour Champion Hale Irwin and architect Bill Phillips of Tempe, AZ co-designed Towa. They utilized the natural topography and unique natural rock and indigenous piñon trees to create a magnificent, high desert golf course surrounded by the majestic Sangre de Cristo and Jemez mountains.

Three of the four nines currently are open. The Boulder nine, so named because of the amazing rock formations that frame it, also features the only island green in New Mexico (hole #4, 186 yard par 3). The first hole of the Pinon nine is a breath taking, 631 yard, par 5. At 3,332 yards, the Butterfly nine is the shortest of the three nines, but offers challenges for beginner and experienced players alike.

Towa offers professional instruction, rental golf clubs, a beautiful club house and restaurant and fully stocked golf shop. The Homewood Suites by Hilton is located on the golf course with the Cities of Gold Casino/Hotel and the Sports Bar Race Book and Casino only a couple of minutes away.
