“Rosie” is probably the centerpiece in our Albuquerque Disc Golf scene. It is home to most of the local league play and has a huge variety of alternate layouts. The course plays across historic Roosevelt park and offers a variety of tee shots and approaches in a small space. Heads up here, there is a lot of crossover with other golfers as well as the general public, so please be courteous and patient. With beautiful mature trees it attracts many people to its shady and grassy hills. The traditional layout is par 57, 18 holes with concrete tee pads on 10 total (shared) baskets, best described as a wooded park course. There are MANY safari/alternate courses that are marked out at Rosie. Once you know your way around, these layouts really open up the course to new levels, and some are much more challenging. Hard copy maps for these courses can be picked up at PLAY Disc Golf Store or you can download them HERE. It can be confusing to play Rosie for the first time so hit us up on our Facebook page or drop us a line in the contact form. There are almost always people in the community who are happy to come play a round with you and show you the layout.
Brent Baca Memorial Disc Golf Course
The Baca is big and it is tough. It uses the natural arroyo and some fencing to create OB lines, as well as some really clever tee placement and artsy man-made obstacles. This all adds up to make for a challenging course with excellent flow in a high-desert environment. Both Pro and Am pads offer technical tee shots, most with some with big distance required to score. It is an 18 hole pro/am layout par 59 for both. Watch out for rattlesnakes and don’t be surprised to see other wildlife around too. Bring plenty of water and prepare for lots of sun. This course is a product of the community really coming together and working with local government to create a course we can enjoy and be proud of. Many disc golfers have sunk a lot of time, energy, and even money into making Baca a reality. Gratitude to them for their efforts!
Ladera Golf Course *NEW*
The new Ladera Golf Course DISC Golf Course is Albuquerque’s first pay-to-play course. On the westside of town, playing alongside the executive 9 of the ball-golf course, this 18 hole course is pretty long (7100-7800’ depending on layout) and surprisingly technical. With some tight fairways, a few mando’s, and excellent use of elevation and trees this course can challenge all. There are a few must-gets but not many, especially if the wind is up, which it often is in the afternoon. Tee-times must be made in advance, call 505-836-4449. Current prices are $13.50 weekdays, $14.50 weekends. Renting a cart is an option for $9 per person. These prices are expected to drop, and improvements to the course to be made as things gets established. We are actively working with parks & rec to accomplish both. We appreciate your patience and support while we work this one step at a time with the city. This course represents huge progress and we are very grateful to those that drove this effort.
