Sculpted through the rising red crags surrounding the Chihuahuan Desert, Painted Dunes Desert Golf Course’s 27-hole course layout challenges golfers with rolling terrain and treacherously sloped greens. Those hoping to groom their golf swing can do so with one, three, or five driving-range buckets—which brim with approximately 50 balls each—to use at the adjacent driving range, which cushions practice balls atop overseeded natural grass that emulates course conditions and tempts hungry golfers to graze indulgently . A more trying golf odyssey awaits at the course, where twosomes traverse two of three pristine nine-hole courses, each one billed by Texas Outside as a scenic labyrinth of native cacti, mesquite, creosote bushes, and mormon tea plants. After the round, players can replenish at the Diecinueve Bar & Grill with a meal of classic fare such as the Dunes burger or chicken tenders, all served with fries and a drink. The grill is designed with indoor seating for post-round relaxation as well as an outdoor patio, which overlooks the course and choreographed tumbleweed performances once an hour.
