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.

I’m dead tired from a long day of traveling, playing Black Mesa and then the cocktail party, dinner and lounging in the hot mineral springs here in New Mexico. Yes it sucks, but someone has to do it.
Highlights of the round include making birdie on the 9th and the 16th. I almost aced the par-3 11th hole.
Must get some sleep so until I get more time to post, here are a couple of shots from today. First is the 17th hole, which I gagged, but it is a great view….
Next is the 18th green with the clubhouse in the background. The old squeaky windmill was playin’ some great music today.
