Moving up five spots from last year, The University of New Mexico's Championship Golf Course jumped back into Golfweek’s top 20 campus golf courses with a ranking of No. 18.
Course manager, Adam Roybal, believes their improvement in standing is due to their dedication to customer service and the fact that they offer some of the best golfing conditions in the state.
“We are excited to be back in the top 20 campus courses,” said Roybal. “The Championship Course deserves to be recognized as a top campus course, because quite frankly, it is. We hope to continue the progress by moving even higher in the campus course rankings.”
Designed by Robert Lawrence, The Championship Golf Course is 7,248-yard, par 72 course that challenges golfers to reach the rolling greens. The Championship Golf Course originally opened in 1967 and instantly became one of the finest golfing facilities nationwide.
Since opening, the Championship Golf Course has become home to both, the men and women Lobo Golf Teams, First Tee chapter of Central New Mexico, and the host of numerous United States Golf Association tournaments.
The paradise-like climate of Albuquerque makes The Championship Golf Course at The University of New Mexico a perfect oasis for golf anytime of the year.
