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!

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?????
