Located within 22,000 acres of Chihuahuan Desert at the foothills of the Chisos Mountains and next to Big Bend National Park, the new Black Jack's Crossing Course at Lajitas is a golf oasis in a barren land of nothingness. Designed by Lanny Wadkins, this par 72, 7,400-yard championship course is breathtaking, set out against the backdrop of one of the last untouched, unique landscapes in North America.

The course, which opened in September of 2011, is actually on a different site than the one that preceded it. The old course, which was destroyed by a flood in 2008, wasn't built on the mountainsides. This new course has elevated tees, winding holes, plenty of bunkers and beautiful paspalum greens and fairways.

Although some of the shots appear intimidating, Wadkins created generous fairways so there's plenty of room to drive the ball, but not impossible to find the desert. The par 3s are particularly strong with each of them different.

Getting there: If you're flying commercial, your best bet is to land in Midland, Texas, rent a car, and then drive four hours south to Lajitas, which is just outside of Terlingua.

    Breathtaking views, dramatic elevation changes, great conditions – lead to intimidating shots. Got to hit a ball into Mexico. Hope to make it back some day to improve on my scores.
