Los Alamos County offers a course that’s both fun and challenging to play... Nestled at the base of the Jemez Mountains atop the Pajarito Plateau, the Los Alamos County Golf Course offers a challenging 6,500 yard, par 72, 18 hole layout.

The golf course, built in 1947 by the Atomic Energy Commission, is one of the oldest 18 hole golf courses in New Mexico. Playing through ponderosa pines and cottonwoods, the sloping fairways and small greens provide a challenge to players of all skill levels. Panoramic vistas and clear, fresh mountain air at an elevation of 7,400 feet, provide a beautiful setting to enjoy the summer and have an enjoyable golf experience!

Please don’t ignore Frost Delays:
When frosted grass is walked, jogged, or driven on, immediate damage is not seen until about 48-72 hours after the damage has occurred, causing the grass to turn brown and die. The destruction of the grass, especially on the putting surface, opens the door for the growth of weeds and disease, thus compounding the issue and further devolving the overall condition of the course.

As the community enjoys the golf course area, whether playing golf, jogging, walking their dog, etc., please be aware of frost on the golf course. When the grass is frosted, please remain on the cart paths that connect throughout the entire golf course.
