This is Staples Golf's first "Community Links" project. The existing 18-hole course has been redesigned as the centerpiece of the community, focusing on kids, families and beginner golfers. The course has been designed to embrace the flat nature of the southeastern New Mexico landscape, keeping irrigation to a minimum and the turf fast and firm. The course features fill pad-style greens and flat bottom bunkers placed in a variety of angles that play with a sense of perspective.
