New Mexico boasts many notable public courses, but none match the unique character and backdrop of Coyote del Malpais. Tucked beneath the dramatic grandeur of 11,300-foot Mount Taylor, the Coyote features 18 holes for up to 7,000 feet of wide-open, challenging driving. If you wish, tame the Coyote with one of the five tee distances at every hole. Sixteen lakes add cool elegance to this championship course, but also add a thrilling challenge for those driving from the pro tees.
There’s no reason to wait for a special trip to Coyote del Malpais, because it is easily reached from Albuquerque—right off I-40, it’s just an hour away from the city. Once you get to Coyote you won’t wait either, because it’s far from the fast pace of the urban grind—and far away from long tee-off lines, too! You can still always make reservations up to 5 days in advance.
