Outstanding course conditions and interesting layout

Played for the first time today (Aug 2022). Probably the second best course I have ever played on. I cannot imagine better grass in the fairways. Every fairway was perfect. The rough was mounded with difficult grass; not heavy rough, but wispy and a few inches tall. The mounds that bordered many fairways were a challenge; first to avoid them, then to hit off them. The greens were soft and receptive and the ball rolled smoothly everywhere. The contours of the greens provided plenty of challenging putts. Greens were mid speed … not slow, but not too fast for a mid-handicapper to handle. Pace of play was a bit slow, but 73 degree weather in mid-August made this tourist from hot Texas enjoy a slowish round of golf.

Fun Course!

I got to play a round with my grandson on this fun course a couple of days before Thanksgiving. It was a perfect course for our level of play...not too hard and not too easy.
Course conditions were good and the staff very friendly.
Beautiful layout with view of the mountains. A very enjoyable round of vacation golf!

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.

Great Course & even better Staff

Having played the Links for a number of years, I can't
say enough about the staff, course condition and the
course itself.
It is always in the best condition that can be contributed
to the grounds staff.

Great place to play

Great course. Great and friendly staff. I have always played the course when I was in Ruidoso. We play in a tournament there every year also when we are there for the All American Race. If you ever change anything please consider a full bar..

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.
