“A Golf Round Spoiled”
Review of Rio Grande Club

Rio Grande Club
Attraction details
Reviewed October 3, 2013

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!

The golf course is set up with 9 holes meadowland and 9 holes set in the mountains. Makes for a good variety of golf shots.
The 18th hole is one lofty devil. Come equipped with a few extra balls. Expect to play it several times to score well otherwise enjoy the beautiful setting and wildlife.

I went with a group of 30 people and we stayed in these townhouses. They are large and very well appointed. The unit that I stayed in had 4 big bedrooms upstairs with 2 full baths. Downstairs there was a large living room, kitchen and dining area. Plus, another bedroom with a king size bed and another full bath. Plus, another full bath off the hall. The golf course is outside your door and a walking trail with a wonderful view of the mountains and valley. The manager of the townhomes was waiting for us when we all arrived. She had each townhome with our names listed on the door. The management came around once we were all settled in our rooms to see if we had everything we needed. Very relaxing lodging. This would be a great place for a family reunion.

The Rio Grande Club is one of the most beautiful courses I have ever played. It's hard to concentrate on your golf when the views are so stunning. The course is in immaculate condition and is a challenge if you don't stay on the fairway, so try to hit them straight! We actually came to South Fork just to play this course and were not disappointed. You won't be either. Add a meal at the restaurant and you'll have a perfect golf outing.

We have eaten in the grill at the Rio Grand Club several times. It's always great. Today we had quesadillas that were wonderful.
Beautiful view of the golf course too.
