Welcome to Las Cruces!
Located in Southwest New Mexico, Las Cruces is surrounded by the Mesilla Valley and runs along the Rio Grande River. Today, Las Cruces stands as the largest business center in southern New Mexico. A popular local activity is golfing, where views of the Organ Mountains can be seen from many of the greens. One popular course is Sonoma Ranch, which features 18 holes of challenging golf for all levels of players.
