1. Hyatt Tamaya Resort and Spa, Santa Ana Pueblo, NM; 505-867-1234, tamaya.hyatt.com
A half-hour north of the Albuquerque airport is the Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort and Spa, New Mexico's finest all-purpose golf resort. With plenty of family activities, plus Twin Warriors next door and the very good 27-hole Santa Ana Golf Club five minutes down the road, the Hyatt Tamaya offers something for everybody -- especially for those who like long, scenic golf courses. Twin Warriors, a 10-year old Gary Panks design, tips the scales at 7,736 yards. Even at the mile-high altitude, this is a workout, as evidenced by the 244-yard, par-3 15th that plays across the sacred "Snakehead" rock butte. Your after-workout cooldown in the resort's attractive pool will make all those lengthy approaches worth the effort.
