The course conditions were great and the staff were friendlye but the extremely windy conditions made the course very difficult to play. It is located in the middle of the desert so no wind breaks around to buffer the 40-50 mph wind gusts we experienced. I would like to play this course again under better weather conditions.

I play courses for their uniqueness. This is a course you need to play. Very interesting hole layouts. Nothing impossible. The views of the mountains and desert are spectacular. The rough is challenging and the fairways soft. The greens are puttable but you have to read them carefully. There were bunkers to keep it challenging but not enough to annoy you. The practice facility was great too The staff were excellent too making this a "do again and again" experience.

If you are in Vegas for work or play and want to have a memorable golf experience go to Paiute. First time playing Sun (beautiful) but have played Wolf and Snow in prior trips. It left me and my colleagues wondering why we'd go play anywhere else in Vegas. Next year it will be all-Paiute. Great condition, challenging but fair, and just a spectacular setting. Highly recommend.

The condition of the 3 courses are always in great shape. Played the Sun course this time. Fairways are in great shape and the greens are well protected by bunkers and depressions. Greens are fast but roll true. it's always windy at Paiute so you need to hit lower shots.

I play 10 rounds in Vegas every spring and never miss a chance to play all three Pauite courses. The quality of the experience is always first class. The course is always impeccable, the practice facilities are fantastic and the staff really care that you are well looked after. Definitely top 5 in the country on my list. If you like to practice you should add that into the cost of greens fees, a lot of courses will charge you for a bucket of balls. Here it is all included. I usually go a few hours early to work on my game. The only thing to consider is the wind, on a calm day it is 15 mph. If it is very windy on the strip it will be very tough conditions. You will need to rent a car to get there, about a 35 minute drive. Still well worth it. Five stars all around

Paiute resort has 3 courses that are all great. I got a nice deal on golf now to play Sun Mt. Layout is fantastic and course is not overly difficult as long as you're ok with the putting. There were some bare spots but only in areas that are essentially not part of the course where you should be hitting the ball. Greens were little beat up aesthetically but it rolled well and pretty fast compared to what it looked like. Its always a treat to play here and I enjoy all 3 courses here at Paiute.

It's long, but set in the middle of the desert making it literally like an oasis. It's a beautiful, well taken care of course. A bit windy, but it was a great challenge. I'll play here again soon!

We come out to this facility every time we're in town, and have never been disappointed. We are always greeted as if we play there every day. The course is in beautiful shape- we played The Sun course. The greens were fast but held the ball. There were only 2 of us and a foursome in front of us. Several times throughout the round, the marshals came around to check and make sure the pace of play was adequate for us, and even offered to move us through if needed.

There were plenty of water stations, but we also had cart services throughout our time.

The practice areas were fully stocked with ample hitting areas.

Overall, between the great courses and friendly staff, we will continue to play this course whenever we're in town.
