I like to have fun on the golf course. Life is too short to be upset over a little white ball not going where it's suppose to go. Find it and send it to it's home. I guarantee I'll hit a shot that you have never seen before (probably ending up behind us).

Played on Black Friday, 11/24, with a 9ish tee time, paid $35 thanks to a 25% off offer John_T had. Busy pro shop and range (and 80* Vegas weather) made me think I was in for a long round, but made it around in just under 4 1/2 hours.
1st time on Palm since the re-seeding in September. Course is doing well. Tee boxes need some work, quite a few uneven stances, particularly on the Par 3s. Fairways are in great shape, total coverage with no thin or brown areas. Rough was short, about 1-2 inches, just enough to slow the ball down and define the fairways. Bunkers were not great. Pebbles/stones in the 2 I was in, both were pretty thin, typical Vegas bunkers. Greens were outstanding. A little on the firm side, but fast and smooth.
Both courses have done well out of the reseeding, and the greens have been in the best shape that I can remember.» Close

Back out at Aliante on Friday, 11-17, with a 8:30 tee time and paid $45 resident rate. The wind must of scared everyone away as the course was empty. Starter said to go when we were ready, so John_T and my neighbor headed off after some stretching. Picked up a single on the 1st and coasted around in just under 4 hours. There was a single stalking most of the front 9, he was playing 2 balls and never wanted to pull up to play through.
Conditions were the same as a few weeks ago. Tee boxes need a little work, and the tee marker placement was a bit off (pointing almost towards houses on a couple). Fairways were in great shape, green and carpet like. Rough is dormant and the bunkers need new sand. Greens were awesome. Firm, smooth, a nice medium-fast.
Aliante has an excellent all grass driving range with plenty of room to move around the tee area. Also a large putting green with a multiple tiers and plenty of breaks. Small short game area with a bunker. I always see people practicing around the area whenever I play.
$45 is a steal right now. Definitely worth the price to get in a round.» Close

Played today with John_T with a 10ish tee time. Thanks to abbacat for offering her free 2some certificate, and thanks to Troon and Johnny for offering it at an event.
Such an incredible change in conditions from summer to after reseeding in fall. Tee boxes were in pretty good shape, some divots on the tees. Fairways were spectacular. The new grass has grown in nicely, I could not find any thin dirt areas at all. Rough is bermuda that is starting to go dormant, so some laid down areas, some tufts of standing grass. Bunkers were the worst, which has always been a weakness here. I was in one with some heavy sand, but another which was thin and hard packed. On to the greens. This summer (and last summer too), Aliante lost about half of their greens. They were basically hard packed sand greens with no grass. HOWEVER, the grass has returned and the greens were in phenomenal shape. Almost all smooth, medium speed, with no signs of their horrible summer condition. I was told they will cut them a bit shorter next week to speed them up.
Customer service was outstanding. Easy check in wit the certificate and they threw in a small basket of warm up balls. Starter told us to check with him after warming up and he would get us out early. Drink cart around a few times each 9 and grill was open with great prices. Felt like we had the course to ourselves (except for a maintenance guy or two and the drink cart) as we putted around in under 4 hours.
Aliante holds a special spot in my heart since it's where I played when I started this game. It is a residential course but houses are out of play as long as you're not too wide right/left. At $45 for residents ($70 for visitors), Aliante is a steal right now.» Close

Back out on AP's Mountain course on Friday, 10/20, with an 8am tee time. Course has been out of re-seeding for about month and off Cart Path Only. Paid $45 with the OB Sports Card.
The new grass has come in great, except for a few spots scattered across the 18 holes. Nothing major, some some thin or muddy areas, no bigger than 10x10 on a few holes. Rough was about 1-2 inches, just enough to give you a bit of a fit to hit out. It appears they did some bunker work too, as the sand was a nice consistency, better than the pebble hard packed from a few months ago. Greens were in great shape, medium fast, but some unrepaired ball marks.
Customer service was awesome. They had a large tournament set to go off on Palm at 8 and all the staff was hustling to make sure everyone was taken care of. Outside staff was great setting us up and getting us out. Pro shop was quick with the checkins and the bar/grill area was busy but no problems getting some pre-round refreshments. They had another group set-up to go out as we were finishing. Extremely busy day with no problems for the non-tourney players.
Starter got us out a bit early as a 2 but we joined up with the 2 behind us on 4 since we were all waiting. Finished right at 4 hours with the group ahead pulling away from us on the back.
Another great day of golf in Vegas.» Close

Played on Friday, 10/6, at 7:45a with John_T, a buddy from work and his brother. I booked it through their website and was shown $40, but paid $36 at check in. The course feels and looks very "old school," and fits in with the quaint feel of Boulder City. It has a full size grass driving range and decent size putting green.
Course had just completed some "spot re-seeding" a few weeks earlier. Tee boxes appeared to be Bermuda starting to go dormant, short and dry, but flat and relatively divot free. Fairways were in good shape, with some bare areas at the start of the fairway, but the normal landing areas were well covered. Rough varied in length and could swallow up a ball in some places. Bunkers were in great shape with almost fluffy brown sand. Greens were awesome. Soft with a medium to fast pace. They can't have them too fast since they're is some severe slopes on some greens.
I loved the course. The first 5 holes are back and forth and tree lined. They feel narrow off the tee but are wider than they appear. Starting at 6, you skirt through residential areas that are mostly out of play with plenty of big trees to protect them. There's a handful of water hazards. Course is straight forward and flat. You can get in trouble if you're not straight off the tee. The challenge is around and on the greens. Most greens slope severely back to front, at least one with a 6 foot drop. They are also protected with bunkers that have a high face towards the green.
No drink cart, but you pass the main snack bar at 5 and pretty close to at 10th tee. There is also a snack shack at 13th and 15th tees. My only complaint is carts do not come equipped with a cooler, but they give you one if you purchase $10 in beverages.
I will go back. While it's not a destination course if you're visiting, it's a nice change from desert courses if you're local.» Close
