Course Ranked No. 3 in New Mexico in Golfweek Magazine’s Annual Best Courses You Can Play List

(Hobbs, N.M.) - Golfweek Magazine released its annual Best Courses You Can Play in each state rankings in the April issue and Rockwind Community Links in Hobbs, New Mexico, earned a significant accolade by advancing to #3 on the highly regarded list. The stunning top rating eclipsed the course’s 2017 position, which was #9 in the state.

The Andy Staples design opened in May 2015 and has since received numerous awards from leading industry publications including: inclusion in Golf Digest’s 2017 Best in State course ratings at #8; named one of Golf Digest’s Best New Courses of 2015; a Top Five New Golf Development in the World by Golf Inc. Magazine; and a 2017 Best Courses You Can Play recognition by Golfweek. The United States Golf Association also singled out Rockwind for breaking the mold and being more than just a golf course in a special video entitled “A Model Muni: Rockwind Community Links.”

“What a great honor to move up six places on such a prestigious list,” said Linda Howell, Rockwind’s PGA General Manager and Head Professional. “We look forward to validating that honor by continuing to present a remarkable golf course at affordable prices.”

The facility is considered a trailblazer in uniting golf with the local community. “Community Links” is a concept introduced by Staples where the focus of the entire project was to link the golf course to the fabric of life in Hobbs. A special feature is a surrounding trail system complete with multiple trail heads, various outdoor seating areas, picnic spaces and scenic viewing points, including access to the site’s five acre lake that overlooks the golf course.
