Great course! Needs a little TLC

The Links is a great Course near the center of Ruidoso. Fun to play great surroundings. A little TLC would do wonders. For example this sign that shows the direction the hole number four is really pitiful looking. Small little improvements like that and just general TLC on the course would make it even better!
