Played 18 holes today. Was not impressed with this course at all! Lot of dead grass everywhere!!! Greens were bad, some were good. Can't believe they think their course is worth 55-85$ a pop!!! I have played over 100 courses and this was the worst for the money. Very dissatisfied!!!

He would not play this course again.

There was a frost delay ( temp was 50ish) till 9. Left alone, played over an hour ahead of schedule. First impression was they didn't use any gas in the chainsaws, lots of trees to hit, and i did. The fairways were nice but the greens were great. Sand bunkers were good too. Only one employee in the club house and he was friendly and professional. No alcohol was available and the restaurant was closed for the season. Too bad on both accounts.

He would play this course again.

First, it is a really nice course with beautiful scenery. That is where the good stuff ends.

The staff was horrendously unfriendly.

The pace was slow on the front nine, but we weren't in a hurry so we didn't mind much. Then, when we made the turn we got to the #10 tee to notice that they put a dad and his five kids (appeared to be about 12 and under) between us and the group we had been waiting on all day! Are you kidding?!?! After watching the kids hit two or three tee shots each on the next two holes (and they had maybe never played before) and an hour for TWO holes while dad didn't even acknowledge or look back, we see the "Marshall" and just says they are just "playing around"! No kidding! No apology, no offer to speed them up, no making them let us play through to the two open holes in front of them! We pointed out that the kids (12 and under) were driving all over the fairways when it was supposed to be "cart path only" he just shrugged and said we could talk to the manager TOMORROW because he was the only employee left on duty because everyone else went home at 6:00! Dusk wasn't until about 9:00, and one 20 something "Marshall" left at the course! We decided it wasn't worth it and drove back to the clubhouse past the groups waiting on every tee box and fairway on the way! This was the absolute worst thing I have ever seen on a golf course. I wouldn't expect this on a $20 municipal course, much less at a "resort" with a $100 green fee! Disgusted!

If you go to Ruidoso and want to play a nice round of golf, try the Links where we played the day before and had a great time for $35 less. Nice, fun course in great condition and friendly folks.

This course is way overpriced. Staff friendliness changes from person to person. Some good, some just terrible. This was my second round this summer and I usually only go because my friends drag me here. Pace is always slow. They expect a 4.5 hour pace of play which is ridiculous. Only reason is the hackers on the course because they are staying at the resort. Both times the pace was really slow, and waited on almost every tee box. The conditions were a bit better this year but not what you would expect for the price. Will gladly play other courses in the area before this one.
