    This is my 5th (round this season) and last round at RVR golf course. The course management is horrible! We were bumped from our scheduled tee time (again) because a foursome was late. Then on the 3rd hole a twosome who was also late , pulled in front of us and squeezed in between us stating that they were late and catching up with the foursome who bumped us off of our scheduled tee time. Took us 2 and a half hours to play 9 holes and nobody seems to care about tee times or course etiquette. Red Cunningham and his staff should rethink their operation. I live here at River Valley Ranch and will not recommend or be returning to play here. While the course is in decent shape , operationally it lacks greatly. The course gets a thumbs down rating.

    great course. Kept in fantastic shape. Was staying in snowmass but well worth the 45 minute drive. Could do a better job of distinguishing pin positions so as to eliminate putting from different zip code on the enormous greens. Friendly staff and great value at twilight!
    Playing again tomorrow!
