Ok for the price
The course was maintained pretty well. It’s a links style. Not very hard. Fun but not my favorite.
I asked for a vodka and orange juice and they told me they didn’t have any? Most ppl
Bring their own?????

Off s eason
Greens still recovering from aeration but overall course in good shape.Staff very friendly
Great job on maintaining
This is a. Low rainfall , high altitude area. They do an excellent job of keeping the fairways and greens in good shape., despite the herds of elk that love walking across the greens. Nice staff and really enjoyable course without crowds.
We play this course frequently and enjoy it. The only negative are the 5somes that hold things up. Can’t understand why courses allow 5somes when they are trying to grow the game.
Humps and Bumps
Yes, it is a links course and it was a lot of fun. The staff was great, good carts, good tee markings, nice fairways, and just overall good course. It was a great day.
I have a 3 handicap. The pace of play was horrible, and there were no marshalls. We skipped 2 holes on the front because of an extraordinarily slow foursome who would not let us through. We played 3 holes on the back, but finally just quit due to 6 (SIX!!!) groups on the 14th tee box, all being held up by a fivesome, who would not let anyone through. We called the pro shop, they came out and spoke to the fivesome, but the fivesome would still not let us through, and so out of frustration and not wanting to play a 6 hour round, we quit. Upon explaining, complaining in the pro shop afterwards, they did give us a raincheck for 9 holes.
Course had a lot of dry areas. Greens had been punched but not top dressed. Bumpy
Links of fun
This is a links style course that Is laid out in mountains near Ruidoso NM. It was in very good condition considering they have had very little rain lately. Well maintained. Greens were far from being flat. Hard reads because of the hills. Challenging but fair. Fairways were cut well to allow for plenty of roll. Staying in the middle is critical because being in the higher altitudes makes it hard to breath if you have to walk up and down the hills much. I played well and shot an 83. That’s not bad for a 16 handicapper.
Too many players at the Links in Ruidoso
Our tee time was delayed because there were not any carts available. The pace of play was horrible. We quit after 9 holes because it took 4 hrs. They are selling too many tee times and crowding the course. It seems as though no one is in charge or paying attention to the actual conditions on the course.
Only got to play 9 due to thunder storm but would highly recommend playing this course.
Very Nice Course
Great course...friendly staff. We had a tee time at 11:40am...didn’t get on the course until 12:00...asked the tee time attendant why are the tee times behind...he stated due to over bookings through my Golf and the course booking system was down. Tee time attendant also was never provided an updated tee time list from the front office. Course was well kept and maintained. We didn’t get to finish 18 holes due to rain. I Caution other golfers not to book tee times after 12:00 noon because it rains like clock work during mid afternoon at this course. Nearly impossible to get an early tee time...you have to book weeks out just to get an early tee time.
Thank you u239134693 for the five star rating and review from your recent visit with us! We apologize regarding the tee time bookings issue you experienced. Thank you for giving that feedback and we are always looking to improve for our golfers. Hope to see you again soon this season for another great round at Sierra Blanca.
Had noon t time. Arrived 15 min early and was told by staff that the t times were running behind because they had no more golf carts. Staff refused to check me in and told me to come back in 15 min to check in. I returned 15 min later and was checked in. There were 4 groups waiting for golf carts. No carts came of the course until 1255. We were told they had 4 fivesomes playing a scramble and that what held everything up. At 1255 I went back into the clubhouse because I had a 530 dinner reservation and couldn't start what would probably be a 5 hour round after 1pm. I explained this to the staff and the clubhouse and they reluctantly agreed to let me golf the next day. I did golf the next day and the course is in nice shape. I had planned on golfing somewhere else the next day so I only got to golf once over the weekend instead of twice. The rangers at this course are not good at keeping the pace of play going. There we at least 10 of us waiting well over an hour 10 very unhappy people
