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.

He would play this course again.

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.

The course is challenging and the staff is great. We play at least once a week.

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.

I have played this course several times and it is always worth the hour drive to play.
