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."

Maybe when the over seed comes back it will be ok. For now very rough
Fairways are like playing on hardpan
We were very disappointed in the conditions greens were in good shape but the fairways had NO grass on them it was like playing on hardpan. I asked if the over seeded this year and was told no only the tee boxes and greens. I would not recomend this course.
Very nice course for the money
Course is quite nice and can be hard at some holes. Pace of play was on time. Fairways were not watered so ball was bouncing everywhere.
A fun course to play
Aliante has a nice balance of easy holes and more challenging holes which makes it a fun round of golf.
There are better choices
This is the second time we played this course and found the condition of the fairways to be disappointing. The majority of the fairways were lined by dried out grass and we would lose sight of our balls because of this. Overall the course layout and greens were fine, but there were no complimentary balls to practice prior to playing and based on the price of the green fees, that was disappointing. We decided that given the condition of the course, lack of amenities, the cost to play this course was not on our list of courses to play again.
Started out on the front 9 and the pace was average. Pulled up to hole 10 and there were 6 foursomes in front of us, waiting to tee off. Complained to the Marshall and he said they shut down the front 9 for maintenance and were offering everyone with a later tee time to play the back twice which caused the train wreck at the turn. He was not apologetic at all and smugly had the attitude of oh well, deal with it. I will not play there again if they think this is an acceptable way to run their course.
Saturday morning round.
Nice course for the money. Some parts are a little rough but overall nice. They should do some additional things to limit cart traffic around greens so ground doesn't get so tore up and some bunkers need work.
Nice layout but slow play
Overseeded recently and therefore poor greens and driving range.
Friendly helpful staff
A good layout but tight with houses along each fairway.
Greens were in transition so were a little bumpy and inconsistent but that would be expected during this time. Fairways were FAST. Hit it low and let it roll. Staff were great. If you play, try and play behind the Spencer (I think) group. They play so fast it is like you have the course to yourself. Good overall experience. Will be back next time in Vegas
Course was in good condition. It is in a residential neighbourhood where you are crossing streets many times. There are rolling hills and greens. There are many sand areas. Fun game.
Knew in advance that the course was not ready for fall but with most courses closed it was good to get a round in.
For a Friday play was slow but weather was perfect!
same 9 twice
when i booked this round it was not made clear that you will be pkaying same 9 twice. do to this pace of play was terrible threee groups on one tee box. the cousre is in good shape better then its been in the past
Excellent people skills!
Fun,clean, enjoyable golf course. We would definitely play again!!
Best conditions at right price
During this time of fall prep, it's good to have a few courses open and without maintenance. Aliante has very good conditions, the greens are in excellent shape (except for a couple of bare patches ?fungus?). Fairways firm and well maintained. A couple drawbacks were lack of rough (balls don't check up) and inconsistent bunkers. As usual, play tends to slow down on the back. About 2:10 on the back on an otherwise open course (1:40 on the front). However, favorable pricing is an attraction over other courses that may be fully operational.
