Very Enjoyable Round

Very high on the fun factor. Front nine is fairly straightforward but the back nine is lovely and has more character. Sand traps were in bad shape but the rest of the course was in good condition. Most importantly, we had a great time.

First impressions

Loved the course. Good condition and fun.

Only complaint was the tournament that was going on. You should have started us on back 9 instead of our having to wait.

Ruidoso has killed the goose

Course is now too expensive for me.. Restaurants are now too expensive in Ruidoso as well. Lodging the same way. Ruidoso and the Links have killed the goose that layer the golden egg. Will not be returning to Ruidoso. will be finding another place to spend my month in the mountains

Beautiful Course.

We had 4 players. I was the only one that hadn’t played this course. The other three love the course and the chalange. I am a no is golfer so they are all hard for me. The staff was very nice and everything is clean. Just wish they had the bar open.

Rain has improved this course

Last year course was horribly dry. This year it is beautifully green. Heavy rains have improved it immensely. I think their regular price is getting to high. We had a deal time with a 20% coupon code to get it to $69 per person. It is links so lots of moguls. If you can stay in the fairway it is much easier to play.

Golf now charged more than Links rate on hot deal

It’s bad when you play a hot deal rate at 1:30 behind a UIL school tournament and the course charged $62.00 dollars per player with cart and Golf now charged 72.00 per person. Due to high school tournament we played a 5 hour round at a premium price. Will not use Golf now.com again
