Wonderful Time

We stayed at the MCM Eleganté next door, it was our honeymoon! We've been to The Links before but this time we had a wonderful woman who drove around selling snacks and drinks. We bought drinks from her and the the next round of drinks she gave us free for being newlyweds. She was very kind! She really made the experience for us. We went through all 18 holes of the course... it took us 4.5 hours because we were out there taking our time enjoying the experience. They have the tee times set up about 30 minutes apart so you gotta keep up with the holes or you'll wanna let them pass you up... which we did about 4 times... Anyways, hahah. We had a great time out there... lost balls, found balls and even seen some deer! Also, i'd recommend getting familiar with the course and where the bathrooms are. Thankfully we passed one on the course at the right time. Snacks included a sandwich and chips combo as well as misc snacks. They had alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks. I highly recommend stopping at The Links at Sierra Blanca.

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!

Oklahoma State Alumni Assoc loves the links.

The staff was wonderful and the course was in good shape. Would recommend this course to any one passing through beautiful Ruidoso. Even if you don t have clubs, the staff will take care of you. Plus the course has scenic views from all directions.

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

This course is fun!

My son and I played this course during the offseason. The greens were just aerated so it made putting difficult and frustrating. Overall, the layout is good and we had a great time!

Good track!

I'm a 5 handicap and I've played the links 100+ times. It's always a fun time playing it. Because of the rains the course is in excellent condition, and the greens are rolling at a fast pace and as good as I've ever seen them. We always look forward to playing it!

First impressions

I am a total amateur having only started playing 8 months ago so I’m no expert. I loved the friendly service and staff they even got us on the 1st tee ahead of our scheduled appointment.
