9-Holes

119627106 9 HolesDesert Greens Golf Course, nestled in the Paradise Hills neighborhood of Albuquerque’s Westside, offers the perfect place to play an abbreviated round of golf while still enjoying the beauty and challenge of a well-designed golf course.

9-Hole Course Options

At Desert Greens, you may play either the front or back 9 for a 9-hole round. However, play is limited to the front 9 for the first 1½ hours after course open. (See our seasonal hours for course open times.)

9-Hole Rules of Play

9-hole rounds of golf are governed by the same rules as 18-hole play—USGA rules and rules of Ready Golf.  Please note that no outside food or beverage or personal coolers are allowed on the course (per New Mexico law). Full food and beverage service is available at Players, which is open whenever the course is open.

We expect all golfers to help us maintain our golf course by:

  • Raking sand bunkers
  • Replacing divots
  • Repairing ball marks on greens
  • Leaving walking carts and golf cars* on the paths around each tee and green

*Golf cars are not required for 9-hole rounds.

Tee Times for 18-Holes

Hours for 9-holes vary by season. On average, first tee times are available:

    Winter: 9:00 am
    Spring: 8:00 am
    Summer: 6:30 am

Tee times are scheduled every eight minutes. Non-members may schedule tee times seven days in advance, and members can schedule ten days in advance.

Enjoy the challenge of a 9-hole round of golf. Contact us to schedule tee times.
