The mission of the golf course staff is to, in an environmentally sensitive and sustainable manner, provide the fairest test of golf possible.
Our full-time staff includes groundskeepers and irrigation technicians. Several members of our team hold New Mexico Department of Agriculture Public Applicator's licenses. Seasonal hires round out a crew dedicated to providing the best possible playing conditions for you on a daily basis.
A computerized irrigation system, complete with weather station assists us in our goal of the wise use of water.
The staff and golf course operations are overseen by Jon Reed Golf Course Superintendent.
New Mexico Tech Golf Course is one of the most scenic and well respected courses in the state. With beautiful M Mountain providing a backdrop, lots of trees and water features, it is easy to get lost in your surroundings. You had better stay focused though, because this beauty is a true test of golf. Accuracy and strategy are rewarded here.

- Cup changes and placement of tee boxes. The Supervisor works with the Golf Course Head Professional to coordinate work crews with golfing events. Crews work flexible hours to meet tournament schedules. Major events require a great deal of coordination between the Manager and Head Professional
