Extremely friendly course.

This Links course is very forgiving, with great character and stunning views. Have played it multiple times and it is always in great shape. The greens are challenging and very rewarding. The weather is usually mild and the staff treat you like with great courtesy and are very helpful. Can't wait to play it again!

Fun round with perfect weather

Got a great online deal for $50. Weather was 58 degrees with very little wind. A lot of different hole designs which was fun. Greens were in excellent conditions. Would definitely play again.

Windy & Linksy

Good track. From very much a links style course, very exposed to the wind. Back plays more of a mix between parkland and links. More trees to block the wind. Greens are tricky, tough to read but also do not give you a true roll. Very bumpy. Overall a great course and fun to play

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!
