Alto, close to Ruidoso, is renowned for its stunning mountain vistas, trails, angling opportunities, and cultural hubs like the Spencer Theater for the Performing Arts. Yet, the community truly stands out for those aiming to live their best lifestyle in one of the 12 sections of Alto Lakes Golf & Country Club.
About Alto Lakes Golf & Country Club
The Residential Experience at Alto Lakes
Initially crafted in the 1960s by Don Blaugrund, Alto Lakes Golf & Country Club began with just the Alto Lakes neighborhood. Fast forward to today, and the club has expanded to include 11 additional communities, each boasting its own unique atmosphere. Consequently, there’s a fit for virtually anyone. What sets this locale apart is the automatic membership each property owner gains to the Alto Lakes Golf & Country Club, making life here uniquely rewarding. Let’s delve into the details.
Alto Lakes Golf & Country Club boasts two premier 18-hole golf courses for its community: Alto Lakes and The Outlaw at Alto Lakes, situated within Alto Golf Estates. Talks are even in progress to potentially integrate the current Kokopelli Golf Club, featuring a par 63 executive course, into the club’s offerings.
Where else can you encounter wildlife like elk, deer, or wild horses while you’re teeing off? The refreshing mountain climate makes summer games particularly enjoyable. The club also hosts an array of specific golf events, including the men’s Snowcapper, the women’s Kachina Doll, and tournaments for Mixed Couples. Skill-building sessions like Junior Golf Camp and introductory courses are available too.
While the golf courses embedded in scenic mountain settings are certainly a highlight, Alto Lakes Golf & Country Club provides much more. If you’re into pickleball, one of the nation’s rapidly growing sports, you’ll be pleased to find that the Alto Pickleball Association operates a satellite club and even maintains a professional shop on-site. Tennis enthusiasts aren’t left out either; numerous courts are available, along with an Alto Lakes Tennis Association membership for a nominal yearly fee.
As of the summer of 2023, work is ongoing to construct a state-of-the-art fitness complex, complete with an indoor lap pool and an exterior family-friendly pool with a slide. The facility is projected to be finished by autumn 2023.
Savor the Finer Things
Beyond golf, aquatic activities, and racquet sports, Alto Lakes Golf & Country Club provides first-class facilities to further enhance your lifestyle.
For aficionados of music, the club’s open-air concert patio features an advanced audio system, attracting both up-and-coming local artists and nationally acclaimed musicians during its popular summer performance series. Attendance is restricted to members and their guests, making these often-sold-out concerts another perk of residing in Alto Lakes.
Whether you’ve just wrapped up a round of 18 and have an appetite, or you’re planning an intimate dinner with loved ones, Alto Lakes has a dining venue to fit your needs. You can venture to the 7,500º Lounge for a beverage with your golf partners, grab a relaxed midday meal, or catch a game on the screen. The Primary Dining Room serves as the central eating area at Alto Lakes, while the Smaller Dining Room can be reserved for more compact gatherings. The menu is diverse, featuring everything from expertly grilled ribeye steaks to an array of plant-based options.
The Outlaw at Alto Lakes has a clubhouse that offers dining every day except Tuesday, with daily specials available. They’ll soon be offering special sporting and music events at The Outlaw, too.
Scott Miller of Pinnacle Real Estate and Development has not only been a member of Alto Lakes Golf & Country Club since his now-grown kids were young, but he is the top seller of homes in Alto. Pinnacle Real Estate has an office just across the road from the country club and, Scott says, “We do more real estate business in Alto than any other real estate office in our MLS.”
He is enthusiastic about what Alto Lakes Golf & Country Club has to offer, saying, “Alto is really a nice place in a beautiful mountain setting with wild horses, elk, deer, and incredible views of the Sacramento and Capitan Mountains. The Alto Lakes Golf & Country Club has so much to offer its members: two full 18-hole golf courses, two clubhouses, tennis, pickleball, fine dining, concerts, and the brand-new $8 million fitness center and pools. Plus, compared to other mountain country club communities around the country, it is exceptionally affordable!”
