Below is a video I captured at the HOG World Tour stop last week in New Mexico at Black Mesa Golf Club. This is a flyover of the fun par-4 14th hole. I call this hole “Island Drive” because it is a risk/reward driveable par-4 with an island of New Mexico desert in the middle of the fairway.

Here’s a video flyover of the awesome par-5 16th hole at New Mexico’s Black Mesa Golf Club, also known as “Stairway to Seven.”  I captured this will my “little” multi-rotor helicopter (some call them drones, but the word drone has a negative connotation).

More to come.

Two days ago the Hooked On Golf Blog World Tour rolled into Paa-Ko Ridge Golf Course, about 45 minutes east of Albuquerque, New Mexico.  The experience at Paa-Ko was splendid.  The course is in a very beautiful area and the holes carved through a fabulous New Mexico mountain desert.

The famous Hooked On Golf Blog World Tour resumes today.  I’m heading to the airport in a few hours.  All packed.  Ready to go.   The HWT returns to perhaps my favorite golf course on the planet, Black Mesa Golf Club.  It has been far too long since I visited the course back in 2012.

In addition to Black Mesa I will also be checking out Paa-Ko Ridge this Sunday.  Paa-Ko Ridge is a very highly rated course and I’m looking forward to checking it out.  I really dig the New Mexico landscape and what it can help produce in terms of golf architecture.

If time allows, I may try to sneak down to Cochiti Golf Course as well.


Review: Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort & Spa

Ojo LogoSometimes being a golf blogger can really suck.  I should quit.  How bad is it to have to go to a fine resort for three days, eat great food, bathe in four different types of hot mineral springs and get massages?  Bad bad bad.  I guess I’d better at least finish this review of Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort and Spa before I submit my resignation.

About Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs

Location

Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs is located in Ojo Caliente, New Mexico, about 50 miles outside of Santa Fe.  The nearest decent airport is 111 miles away in Albuquerque.

History

The waters at Ojo have been a haven for many different peoples, from the ancestors of Native American Tewa Indian tribes, to the Spaniards in the 1500’s, to golf bloggers in 2009.  There’s much more detailed history, sans the golf blogger part, here.

Four different mineral springs

Ojo Caliente has the distinction of being the only hot springs on our planet with four distinct types of mineral water:  iron, lithium, soda and arsenic.

There are 10 different pools, some private, filled with these varying waters or combinations of them.  The pool temperatures range from 80-109 degrees F.
