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.
