Played the Rio Grande Club course after travelling over Wolf Creek Pass from Pagosa Springs. Our 2 couples paid the green fees, loaded up our carts and used the practice range, and were on time for our late morning tee time. All was good and appropriate on a beautiful fall day... until we reached the 13th hole. A hoard of children appeared on the horizon, flooding the cart paths and the course. An area school track meet was being held on the course and kids were running loose all over the 13th, 14th, 15th and 16th holes. Hundreds of them, walking over greens while we tried to play, talking, laughing...totally clueless about the golfers present. We were absolutely shocked at this development. We managed to finish the round without hitting any kids, but the incident spoiled our day. When complaints were made to pro shop management after the round, we were met with indifference and weak excuses. No apology, no concessions. This makes the third negative experience we have encountered with this golf club (poor F/B service and ripped off on a 2 for 1 green fee offer in the past years). Not recommended!
