ONE OF THE PAA-KO RIDGE THREE PARS
RON MURRAY, PGA GM.
On the east side of Albuquerque's Sandia Crest is Sandia Park. One thing this means is that the course is one of the lushest in the state. It gets moisture more frequently than those on the west side where the state slides into its expansive desert.
Another unusual aspect of the club's 27 holes is that the holes are numbered one through 27. The newest, and considered perhaps the hardest, is 19 through 27. To protect the short rough, the club has the policy of carts going 90 degrees to get to the fairway and then staying on it until necessary to go back to the cart path.
There are no out of bounds markers. If you hit a ball into the extreme rough, the rule is to take a one stroke penalty and throw your ball out. One thing for sure is that you will find more balls than you are likely to lose.
