Resort & Club
RANKED #1 RESIDENTIAL GOLF COURSE IN NEW MEXICO BY GOLFWEEK
At the heart of Rainmakers lies a championship golf course designed by the renowned architect Robert Trent Jones II, one of the most celebrated names in the golfing world. The course is carved into high mountain walls, with meandering arroyos and natural rock outcroppings framing an awe-inspiring 18-hole journey that is considered one of the finest in the Southwest. Golfweek Magazine has repeatedly recognized Rainmakers as the #1 Private Golf Course in New Mexico, the #1 Residential Golf Course in New Mexico and #32 in America.
The course weaves through acres of protected lands, reflecting the community’s deep reverence for the game and the natural world that sustains it. From dawn to dusk, golfers can chase daylight down the fairways and marvel at the stunning scenery that surrounds them. Each hole at Rainmakers offers four to six sets of tee boxes, ensuring a challenge for players of all skill levels. The course measures 7,110 yards, making it a playable distance for low handicappers, aided in part by its setting at over 7,000 feet in elevation.
The course is also home to a variety of wildlife, including elk, deer, bobcats, and black bears. The resident elk herd is so robust that Rainmakers has even implemented a local rule that allows golfers to improve their lie if their shot lands inside an elk track. Come experience the astonishing golf and natural beauty of Rainmakers for yourself.
