Opened in 2015, Rockwind Community Links, is a 27-hole community golf facility owned and operated by the City of Hobbs. Rockwind provides the citizens of Hobbs an amenity like no other in the country. The award-winning facility includes a championship 18-hole course, a 9-hole par-3 course, a dual ended practice range and multiple short game areas for practice and learning. Additional elements to the facility include an open green space for events, a surrounding trail system complete with multiple trail heads, various outdoor seating areas, picnic spaces and multiple scenic viewing points, including access to the site’s five acre lake that overlooks the golf course.
The entire golf facility has been designed to test the best golfers, while fostering beginners, families, disabled individuals and non-golfers alike. The course is set into the classic southeastern New Mexico landscape that combines turn of the 20th century design details, strategic placement of hazards and water efficient, cool season blue grass fairways and roughs. The end result is one of the most challenging and unique golf experiences offered in southeastern New Mexico, and arguably in the Southwest.
