The Aliante Golf Club lays a little over 7,000 yards from the longest tees, par 72. In the course’s front nine, hundreds of pear trees make an odd appearance. At first glance, they look quite misplaced in a sea of arroyos and rocky desert terrain. All the more “misplaced” are the Mondale pines and purple locust trees in the back nines. The palette of colors they create truly spice up the usual golden casts of sunlight on the wide desert. But as much as they looked out of place here, a golfer knows by heart what designer Gary Panks was trying to achieve. These trees work rather well with the course’s sizable serving of large bunkers and rocky arroyos to urge the golfers to use every club in the bag. That, and to make his heart rate fluctuate as much as the elevation changes hereabouts. Some interesting water features make an appearance in the right amount and in just the right places to complete the golf vacation package.
And with five sets of tees, theAliante Golf Club opens its unique offers to more golfers. And no matter how eclectic a combination its features are, this course has arguably perfected the mixture of excellence in scenery and challenge. This most definitely gives an unusual twist to the usual Las Vegas golf trips.
The clubhouse at Aliante Golf Club features a well celebrated pro shop, bar and grill with gastronomic servings for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Food for the eyes are also offered at the outdoor pavilion where the magnificent view unfolds on the nearby Sheep Mountains. Aside from relaxing moments, this location also provides an area for practice which is a 50,000 square foot grass range showcasing over 40 hitting stations. The huge putting green of 14,000 square feet and the short game area contain sand bunkers and chipping areas. From various angles on this golf vacation destination, golfers can practice chips and pitches with assured molded skills and even learn new ones from the golf treasure.
