Hobbs has many days of sunshine, allowing access to a challenging game of golf at the award-winning Rockwind Community Links Golf Course, fishing at local parks, and wonderful walking trails for enthusiasts. A nationally recognized and award-winning facility, the Center of Recreational Excellence (CORE) boasts the state’s tallest indoor waterslide and so much more, including indoor soccer facility and natatorium among its many family-friendly activities.
