Nestled near Ruidoso, roughly 120 miles from Albuquerque, Alto is celebrated for its breathtaking high-elevation scenery. Whether it’s hiking, fishing, or taking in a show at the Spencer Theater for the Performing Arts, the area is rich with opportunities. Alto’s crown jewel, however, is the lifestyle offered at the 12 subdivisions of Alto Lakes Golf & Country Club.
ALTO LAKES GOLF & COUNTRY CLUB
A HAVEN AT ALTO LAKES
Born in the 1960s from the vision of Don Blaugrund, Alto Lakes Golf & Country Club began with the Alto Lakes subdivision. It has since expanded to include 11 more neighborhoods, each brimming with unique charm, making it a perfect community for various tastes. Living here grants automatic membership to Alto Lakes Golf & Country Club, a feature that truly defines the area. Let’s explore what it has to offer.
Alto Lakes Golf & Country Club boasts two 18-hole championship golf courses: Alto Lakes and The Outlaw at Alto Lakes, part of Alto Golf Estates. Talks are in progress that may make the Kokopelli Golf Club’s par 63 executive course part of the country club.
Imagine a golfing experience where elk, deer, or wild horses may appear on the course! The refreshing mountain air makes summer play an absolute joy. The club also hosts special golf tournaments like the men’s Snowcapper, ladies’ Kachina Doll, and Mixed Couples. For new or young golfers, there’s the Junior Golf Camp and introductory courses.
Beyond the scenic golf courses, Alto Lakes Golf & Country Club provides a wealth of activities. If you’re into pickleball, one of America’s fastest-growing sports, the Alto Pickleball Association runs a satellite club with a pro shop at Alto Lakes. Tennis enthusiasts will find ample courts and membership in the Alto Lakes Tennis Association for a nominal annual fee.
By fall 2023, a stunning new fitness complex, complete with an indoor lap pool and an outdoor family pool with a slide, is set to open.

SAVOR THE GOOD LIFE
Alto Lakes Golf & Country Club is not just about physical activity; it offers premium amenities to enhance your living experience.
For music aficionados, the patio concert area’s cutting-edge sound system attracts local talent and well-known national performers during the summer concert series. Membership (or being a guest of a member) is a must, as these shows often sell out — a compelling reason to consider life at Alto Lakes.
Dining at Alto Lakes is versatile, whether you’ve finished a golf round or want a special evening. The 7,500º Lounge is a place for drinks, casual lunches, or game watching. The First Dining Room is the primary dining spot, and the Small Dining Room is perfect for intimate gatherings. The Outlaw at Alto Lakes’ clubhouse also offers dining and daily specials, soon to include special sporting and music events.
RELOCATING TO ALTO LAKES
Scott Miller of Pinnacle Real Estate and Development, a longtime member of Alto Lakes Golf & Country Club and the leading home seller in Alto, has an office right across from the country club. “We do more real estate business in Alto than any other real estate office in our MLS,” he says.
Scott’s passion for what Alto Lakes Golf & Country Club presents is palpable. He explains, “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!”
