Angel Fire Golf Course

For $192 I got: Not one level tee box on the whole course. No divot mix in the cart bottle, and no refill bottles on the way to the first tee with any mix in them. No food/beverage cart until the 17th hole. No starter. No marshall to speed up slow play. A club house that resembles something from 1960. Singles shuffled in front of us turning to the back nine. This course should be in the $25-$35 dollar range. What a joke.

Avoid the golf course

So sad–I have played this course a number of times over the years but not for the last 5 years. Played this weekend and it is so sad how far downhill this course has gone. The fairways vary from dried out hardpan to overwatered spongey. Of the 18 greens, no 2 are alike–a couple had not been mowed in several days, a number of them were hard as rock, and many of them had dead spots covered with sand. It is tragic how this fun mountain course has become a goat ranch. The $95 green fee is $75 over priced. Please drive to Taos to find a real golf course.

New Resort Membership Agreements Waive ALL Membership Rights

Angel Fire Resort instituted a new membership agreement for Base, Premier and Platinum members this past May.   The agreement came as a surprise to a few  AAFPO Board members since the Resort had not presented the agreement to the Board for review as specified in the bankruptcy documents. Per the Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization (AJPoR), the Resort is required to present any rule change to the Board prior to implementation.  If the Board does not respond within forty-five (45) days, the Resort may implement the change. AAFPO reserves the right to sue the Resort if the Board feels that the provisions violate the letter or “spirit” of the AJPoR.

Prarie Dog Management

Originally, prairie dogs thrived only in places overgrazed by native animals. Populations expanded as European settlers arrived. As buffalo numbers dwindled due to overhunting and before the range was stocked with domestic livestock, prairie dog populations started to decline. Over the years, rangelands were fenced, ponds constructed, and large areas plowed. Remaining rangelands were overgrazed, and prairie dogs inhabited an estimated 2 million acres by the early 1900s. Prairie dog management programs and control laws were implemented, some of which remain in effect today.

Price of Propane, When will AF Residents see Relief

The Santa Fe New Mexican ran an article by Bob Quick 11/17/08 titled:
'Cheaper gas, propane bring relief to struggling households'

An excerpt from the article reads: “The price of propane, which closely tracks the price of crude oil, also is down this heating season, falling from $2.69 per gallon to $2.24 per gallon in the last three weeks,
according to Jose Garcia, one of the managers of AAA Gas Service, a propane company.”

I have been curious why propane hasn't gone down much in Angel Fire. I telephoned a propane provider in Las Vegas NM and their price is $1.99, but they don't service Angel Fire. So if propane is $2.24 in Santa Fe and $1.99 in Las Vegas, why is propane in Angel Fire $2.44 – $2.99?

A couple months ago, there was a man in Taos who would daily stand at the corner of Hwy 585 & 68 with a sign 'Gas in Santa Fe is $2.49. This is when gas in Taos was over $3.00. The Taos stations rather quickly lowered their gas prices. I wonder if something similar would bring propane prices down in Angel Fire, or what it would take to get local propane providers to give us a little relief.
