ANGEL FIRE, New Mexico (September 15, 2004) – At 8,690 feet in elevation, Angel Fire Resort’s golf course is known for big drives and even bigger views.
The New Mexico Business Weekly has taken notice of the resort’s special place in the state’s golf industry. The magazine has named Angel Fire one of the top 5 public golf courses in the state. This honour is more proof that Angel Fire Resort is the Southwest’s premier year-round alpine recreation destination.
Angel Fire’s head golf professional, Jon Bohannon, is not surprised with the results.
“To be honest with you we have a lot of advantages over other courses. Where else can you hit off the tee box against the backdrop of Wheeler Peak? With all the stunning views on every hole, I really think, if you don’t play well here, most people won’t remember that, they’ll remember the experience. If you do play well, you’ll remember both.”
The New Mexico Business Weekly compared all of New Mexico’s public golf-courses and ranked the top 25 best in the state. Each course was ranked by its Championship or back tee yardage rating slope. Angel Fire’s course tied with Towa Golf Resort in Santa Fe with a ratings slope of 136.
At 8,690 feet, Angel Fire Resort’s golf course is the highest elevated course in New Mexico and among the highest in the country. Green fees are $50 dollars during the week and $65 on weekends. There’s still time to play golf this season; Angel Fire’s course will stay open until October 17th.
