My husband and I have played this course before. The staff is very friendly, we have a son with special needs who likes to ride in the golf cart with us and they were very understanding and helpful. The course was in very good shape and the greens were easy to read and rolled true. We found a hot deal on golf now and my husband and I played for $25.00 together. Our overall course experience was very good and will be back to play again. I rated the course good just because there were a couple of holes where we didn't know how the hole was laid out.

Drove up for the day with a group of buddies from Odessa (hour and half drive). Clubhouse was very nice, large pro shop with good selection of gear. Driving range and practice facilities were nice, good grass, typical yellow practice balls. Overall the course was fun to play, quite difficult, fast greens with lots of slop and undulation, miss the fairway you had some trouble, waste areas need the most work on the course. The biggest drawback from our experience was the 5 HOURS & 42 MINUTES it took to play the course!!! It took the marshal 13 holes to finally get around to telling the two slow groups in front of us ( who were holding the entire course up). Which by then did no good. I hope they get their pace of play down to something more manageable like four and half hours max. Overall a great tract but with the pace of play myself and my golf group do not have plans on making it back anytime soon.

This was a course I had been hearing about and was excited to finally play. There's no course around SE New Mexico/ West Texas that compares! Neat and unexpected layout (for this area especially). Good pace of play, great condition. Hobbs residents have a special course in Rockwind.

This course is more than an extremely great value. Being from back east I'm not used to the dry, flat, brownish high plains here. Rockwind is a beautiful gem of an oasis here in SouthEast New Mexico. For those travelling, it is a short drive from Hobbs Airport, and very close to the local racetrack/casino if you're into those kinda places. I was greeted by an extremely pleasant and professional staff when I walked in and not only did they welcome me to the course, but they welcomed me to Hobbs and accepted me as a new resident of the area. I hit balls on their excellent range at least 5 days per week and get in at least 9 holes of golf here every week. I am amazed by the quality and upkeep of their grass every time I step out of my vehicle. Rockwind would be a great accomplishment of service and maintenance no matter what part of the country, let alone here in Lea County, NM. Their beautiful scenery, lush fairways, and well kept greens are my only medicine for my homesickness this far from home. My only complaint would have to be the pace of play on the weekends. It's by no fault of the way the course is run, only that the price combined with the quality of the course is such an attraction. My fist time playing the course I called it quits after my first 9 holes took 3 hours to play. This was probably a product of a 3pm tee time on a Saturday with beautiful weather. On another occasion I was grouped into an 8am foursome and we had a great day. Just over 3hrs for 18holes. Be prepared to see lots of rabbits! I was able to get a picture from the #5 tee with no less than 12 rabbits in the frame! Also, don't pass up the chance to play their par 3 course. It is just as well maintained as their championship caliber course, and equally as fun.

This course is kept in exceptionally good condition. It challenges all types of golfers. The green fees are very reasonable and low for such a wonderful course. The staff is helpful and friendly. The associated restaurant is unusually good for a public course. The professional staff are so helpful and the teaching pro is gathering new clients each day. I give this course my highest recommendation. A great experience at a low cost.

I've continue to be impressed with this golf course and cannot wait for it to mature. As it is, it rivals northern New Mexico courses, so I can't wait to see what it'll look like here in a few years.

Our home course is closed for remodeling so we are now the traveling golfers. Glad we found this one. Best municipal course I have played! Great grass for this area of the country. Greens are INSANE! We will be back. Well worth the 1.75 hour drive. Pace of play was slow...but not too bad for a muni.

My wife and I have come to enjoy the redesign as a family friendly outing. My 20 month old loves being around the course. Course is the greenest place in Hobbs and Lea county. My son has been with me on the par 3 several times without problems or complaints. Meals at the club house are satisfying. A little slow so don't be in a hurry. Staff has been exemplary and friendly every time. I just hope my game gets as good as our new facility.

My husband and I are both fairly new to golf. Our public golf course at home is rough to say the least. We played a nice course in Clovis a few weeks back and my husband has been to several in Texas with his brother. We were so impressed with how beautiful Rockwind is, from the moment you pull into the parking lot to the time you leave. I am sad to see several of the golfers ahead of us didn't have proper etiquette (picking up your broken tees, replacing divots, etc.). The only thing I would ask is perhaps they have a "course etiquette enforcer" to drive around and make sure people are complying with course rules. Other than that, I was very challenged since I'm new but it wasn't so difficult that I didn't want to play.

The course offered a great challenge while also offering beautiful scenery. The fairways are very plush which provides the opportunity to play on grass as opposed to dirt as so many courses offer in this area. Will definitely be coming back for more.

Great staff, great facilities, and the course is in great condition. I drive 120 miles to play this course and all 5 times has been a wonderful experience. If I could move to Hobbs this would be my course. Can't say enough good things about this place. The greens are perfect and so are the fairways. Bad shots will definitely penalize you. A handicap on this course will travel well. If you want to sharpen your short game then they also have a beautiful 9-hole par 3 course.
