Award winning Municipal Course Advances from Prior No. 3 Position
(Hobbs, N.M.) — Golfweek Magazine released its annual Best Courses You Can Play in each state rankings and Rockwind Community Links in Hobbs, New Mexico, continued its climb on the highly regarded list by advancing to No. 2. The course, which offers multiple tees for players of all ability levels, is a popular destination for golfers in the state as well as west Texas.
The Andy Staples design opened in May 2015 and has received numerous awards from leading golf publications including: inclusion in Golf Digest’s 2017-18 Best in State course ratings at No. 7; named one of Golf Digest’s Best New Courses of 2015; and cited as a Top Five New Golf Development in the World by Golf Inc. Magazine.
“What a great honor to be recognized as the No. 2 course in New Mexico on this prestigious list of the best courses that are open to the public in our state,” said Doug McDaniel, Parks & Recreation Director in Hobbs. “Our commitment at Rockwind is to offer a remarkable golf course and playing experience for golfers at affordable prices. Everyone associated with the success of Rockwind is to be congratulated on this special achievement.”
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.
