12 Shores at Ute Lake is a relatively new Jack Nicklaus design on the south shore of Ute Lake, between Logan and Tucumcari, New Mexico, on the east side of the state, exit 355 of I-40 if you're coming from Texas, or 329 at Tucumari, if you're coming from the west.
The course is part of a real estate development that's just taking off, and the course was routed through the future development, and along the lake in a beautiful setting. There's just 9 holes at the moment, and they have two sets of tees to give you a different look, yardages are from 3,600 from the red tees to almost 3,900 from the tips, we played from the blues at 3,425 yards. The layout is mostly level, a few holes right along the lake bordering wetlands. It's classic Nicklaus with a lot of bunkering, and strategic play. The fairways are bordered by tall native grasses, and well off from the desert scrub, mounded and undulating throughout, and the greens are on the large side with plenty of undulation.
