Aliante Golf Course
Gary Panks designed Aliante Golf Club to be player friendly rather than score crushing. It is supposed to be a Las Vegas golf version of Cheers.
Everyone may not know your name, but there is a huge practice facility, good clubhouse digs to kick back in and most of all a 7,022-yard layout that does not play nearly as fearsome as its 139-slope rating would indicate.
Which doesn't mean there isn't plenty of variety. With 54 bunkers, 14 bridges, four ponds and two waterfalls, about all Aliante is missing is a kitchen sink on a par 5.
"Aliante is a little out of the way, but it was well worth the trip," Todd Dewey wrote in TravelGolf.com. "It was a bit surreal to be playing in a picturesque setting in that part of town and the fast pace of play made it even more enjoyable. There was absolutely no waiting."

Windy Today but Good
Had a lot of fun getting out of the house. Course is in good shape for the time of year. Greens are hard and ball jumps off on them. Overall it wS a lot of fun.
Unfortunately no overseeding has been done so it doesn’t look like the pictures you see.
Very tight lies as a result and no grass to stop the ball rolling way off the green.
Very good experience
First time playing this course. Staff very friendly and knowledgeable. Very challenging course. Some fairways and greens were not the best. I’m guessing as summer comes it will improve.
Course was in terrible condition - no grass on fairways and rough was just hardpan. One of our group drove a 419 yard hole on a ball that was not in the air 200 yards.I can honestly say it was the worst course I have ever played in 35 years of golfing.
To make things even more fun we were playing behind a group of six players.
Demise of a great course
Course is a very nice layout. However, for some reason the fairways were very dry and they don’t appear to be watering at all. Shame. Played here on a trip for the last 6 years. . Not sure what the problem is.
This has to be the worst course I have ever played. I have played in 5 different countries and many different states. The excuse that it is winter conditions is not valid for this place. We played 5 different courses in the Las Vegas area from 20 Feb 2020 to 25 Feb 2020 and this course was by far the worst, this course is dead. They lay out was good but man this course is bad. Every tee box was covered in little stones that scratch the heck out of your clubs and grass in the fairways and rough was non-existent. The greens were however in decent shape.
If the option was available I would of asked for my money back after the first 2 holes.I will never play here again.
ranger Tom is a very nice staff, make us to feel very special to start the round. Beautiful practice area! Fairways better than our expectations, green is fast and fair. I like being back to play again.
Well designed course friendly staff. Grass still a little brown but easily playable.
was originally going to buy home in this community four years ago. Did not buy because I didn't like the course much. I have played there about twice a year in every possible season and I have never found the course to be even average condition. Hard fair ways with with virtually no healthy grass and tilt that will take center struck shots into the rock arroyos lining the fairways. Hard greens, inconsistent bunkers with rocks in them. I have played at least ten times now and can only visualize two holes.. There are too many better, less expensive courses in the area to waste my time and money on this dog track.
Enjoyed playing this course...the difficulty of the par 4s vary..overall so long as you stay on grass you can score we
Lots of deferred maintenance
Fairways were neither brown or green. Not sure why. Sand traps were often too hard to hit from. Tee boxes beat up especially on the par 3s. Just a general lack of care and repair.
I know it early March, but I wouldn't pay $5 to play this course right now. No excuse to have the fairways and bunkers in such embarrassing condition.
