The New Mexico summer golf season is in full swing at Picacho Hills Country Club here in Las Cruces, NM, and the course has never looked or played better! The course is in spectacular shape as a result the many improvements that Picacho Hills Country Club has made over the last year. With the course in such great shape, we are enjoying golf at Picacho Hills more than ever.
The Picacho Hills Country Club is one of the many great amenity available to residents of Picacho Mountain Master Planned Community, so we are always excited to see them make improvements that will benefit members. This is the first in a series of posts where I will highlight some of the great improvements that Picacho Hills Country Club has made to their facility.
Here are a few of the great improvements that have been made to the Picacho Hills Golf Course:
- Automated Course Irrigation – Last year Picacho Hills Country Club spent a considerable amount of time and money on a new automated irrigation system. The new system allows the grounds management team to control each sprinkler head by computer. This allows management to address summer and spring dry spots without over-watering other parts of the fairway. This not only saves water but has made the course look and play better than ever! The fairways and greens are in great condition. Club Pro Gary Noble says members should continue to see improving conditions for the next year as a result of the new irrigation system and course management.
- More Enjoyable Course Conditions – Las Cruces, NM has many great golf courses, but Picacho Hills Golf Course has always been the most challenging and fun course in the Las Cruces are. The new irrigation system has made the course even better for golfers of all levels. The increased irrigation has improved areas that previously had little or no turf. The additional turf has made many holes much more playable and enjoyable for the average golfer, without detracting from the challenge for serious golfers.
- Other Improvements & Repairs – Picacho Hills Country Club golf pro Gary Noble and grounds superintendent Gil Martinez have a been paying great attention to course details. Their team has begun to manicure areas and repair facilities that had previously gone unnoticed. Cart path repairs, tee box improvements, bridge improvements, and tree trimming are just a few of the noticeable improvements that make the course experience even more enjoyable.
Tournaments, Activities & Lessons – Club Pro Gary Noble and Director of Golf Instruction Jane Noble have worked hard to introduce new tournaments and golf activities for members this year. They have been really creative in giving golfers fun and interesting opportunities to come together to play. Jane Noble is a nationally recognized teaching pro. Karen and I, as well as many other members, have greatly benefited from Jane’s patient instruction and helpful tips. Karen and I have both seen a marked improvement in our game every time we work with Jane.
These are just a few of the things that make Picacho Hills Country Club Golf Course one of the top courses in the Southern New Mexico and West Texas region.
