Club History

Alto Lakes' front nine was built in 1966 when the club was founded and the back nine was completed a couple of years later. The front nine is a friendly nine, predominately up on the mesa. The back nine is more mountainous in terrain and is one of the toughest nine holes in the state. Alto's playing surfaces are Bent Grass on the greens, with Kentucky Bluegrass tees, fairways and rough.

The Outlaw at Alto Lakes was built in 2008 and acquired by Alto Lakes Golf and Country Club in 2011. Designed by John LaFoy of South Carolina, it is quickly assuming its place as one of the finest and most scenic golf courses in the entire Southwest. Outlaw's playing surfaces are A-1/A-4 Bentgrass greens and tees, with Kentucky Bluegrass fairways and roughs. Native area at the Outlaw are made up of the native grasses of New Mexico.
