Rockwind offers golfers a championship 18-hole course, a 9-hole, Par-3 short course, plus world-class practice facilities. But equally as important, it also offers a 3 mile running trail, picnic areas, open space, an excellent restaurant and a clubhouse designed to host all types of social activities from weddings to performances by the local symphony.
“We were honored when we learned the USGA wanted to make a video about the uniqueness of our golf course concept and the long term investment we have made to our community,” said Hobbs City Manager, J.J. Murphy. “It’s a major privilege for the USGA to acknowledge and highlight Rockwind Community Links as a model for how other communities could grow the game of golf. We were happy to accommodate the USGA film crew and thank them for all their hard work in getting our message out.”
Rockwind Community Links has received some top industry honors including one of the Best New Courses of 2015 by Golf Digest, Best Courses You Can Play by Golfweek, and Top 5 New Golf Development in the World by Golf Inc. Magazine. Fred Couples, who learned to play golf on a public course, stated during his visit to Rockwind Community Links - “you’re not going to see many public facilities like this in the country—it’s just phenomenal.”
