Playing golf gives Omar Hernandez peace of mind. He works in the oilfield. On his days off, the Odessa native enjoys teeing up.
He usually plays at Ratliff Ranch Golf Links three to four times a week. The OHS graduate says the layout of the golf course is friendly but challenging. Even more challenging sometimes, those West Texas winds. But who doesn’t like a challenge, right?
To give you some background on the Ratliff Ranch Golf Links, it’s on 125 acres and offers a
Scottish-style links course with rolling hills and unique elevation changes. In 2005, the City of Odessa took over ownership. It did close for two years for renovations and opened back up in 2008.
