March Event – Lake Carlsbad GC, NM

We started 2017 with a bang in El Paso! Let’s keep it going at Lake Carlsbad! 
We hope you can join us for the March meeting at the beautiful Lake Carlsbad Golf Course in Lake Carlsbad, New Mexico.
Lake Carlsbad Golf Course is a beautiful course that is situated in the foothills east of the Pecos River.  At 6,512 yards, the course is not long, but the tight fairways, changes in elevation and small greens offers a variety of challenges.  Several new tees have been added in recent years to add length and difficulty.
Our hosts for the day are Kyle Boatman and Steve Hendley and will have the course in tip-top condition. The event will include a business meeting, education session, lunch and of course golf.
