Rockwinds Rocks

Nicest course in southeastern New Mexico , great layout designed by Fred Couples , nice value for the money , good fairways , nice greens , has a good range and a nice little par 3 course to dial your wedge game in , I’ve played it several times over the years since it opened , I highly recommend if you are in the Hobbs area it’s a must play course !

Great time

This course is awesome. Been playing here for two years now. The staff is very nice and the course is fun to play. Golf carts are new, full bar, great food and they have a full par 3 18 hole if you’re not in the mood to play a full 18 course. They close Tuesday’s for maintenance.

Great course

Played an afternoon round on a Sunday and finished in three hours. Greens and fairways were amazing. Really fun track too, Par 5’s were gettable, but most of the greens were difficult if you were on the wrong side of the hole. Overall very fun round.

Only negative was the geofence for the carts kept beeping at us all round even when we were on cart paths.

Rockwind

Course was in ok condition. Almost every hole had ground under repair area. Greens were very nice and consistent. Bunkers were lacking sand. Kinda bare. Thick ruff. Missed fairway can result in rocky lie. Lot of rocks. Cart paths are just around the tees and around the greens. Awesome GPS in every cart.

Good course, fairways and rough in iffy shape

I remember when I first played this course 2 or 3 years ago when it had just opened, and it was in such better shape then. Rough was pretty long and there were a lot more of the waste bunkers. Also, fairways were in good shape. So many dead spots. But it’s a good course, it’s got bluegrass, just hard to keep. It’s a tough layout, especially the greens, which really can just be too ridiculous at times. I hope it gets to be in better shape. I know even Rawls has these troubles.

It did suck that my group got to the back 9 and were welcomed with 3 groups that were told to start off on the back nine.

Oasis

In the middle of the eastern New Mexico desert, Rockwind is a golf oasis -- great fairways and greens. It's not an easy course, especially if you haven't played it before because there are several holes where course knowledge is essential. Overall, it's one of the best public courses you're going to find.

Awesome course!!

Best course in the area. Well worth driving a few hours to play. Greens are big but fast and not a flat spot. Green year round.
