Golfed the Sun course on a Sunday afternoon. It was a beautiful, sunny early Fall afternoon with no wind. Beautiful views of the desert and mountains. Since this was my first time at the course, I played from the white tees (12 handicap), next time I will play from the gold/yellow tees. I found the course challenging and interesting but not overly penal. However, I predict this course could be a brute if the wind blows - totally exposed. Course conditioning was excellent, but the greens surprised me by being a bit slow. I’m not a golf masochist who expects lightening fast greens. Still, the greens were not especially undulating or sloped, so they could have been a bit faster and still be within the design. Staff was very friendly. Pace started out slow, but a group let us through and we played in about 3 1/2 hours. Lunch was excellent quality at a reasonable price.

Played in the early afternoon,was met by friendly staff as well as great conditions and a great course. It's very quiet out there due to its location, it's like an oasis in the middle of the desert. We will return.

Paiute always top-notch! Other than being windy, perfect conditions, greens hard and fast. Any of the three courses are worth playing, there is no bad option. Truly a golfers paradise.

If you happen to be visiting Las Vegas and you only get the opportunity to play one course, you should make that one golf course The Wolf course out at Pauite. The fairways are suspiciously lush for a course hidden otherwise by the endless desert. The greens are always in great condition and the staff is generally the best in the valley. If possible, try to play on a day when the wind is calm, but if not, enjoy the challenges the winds bring with them. The endless desert vistas, fantastic staff and conditions, and the famous island par 3 on the 15th, Wolf should satisfy the desires of the most critical golfer.

Loved this course. Played the Wolf and Sun courses, one each day. Despite being 115 degrees, I survived. Excellent greens, lush fairways, nobody on the course. Enjoyed the Wolf more than Sun. Sun in tighter, lost balls in the rocks. Saw lots if Jack rabbits, no snakes! Lovely, staff and top notch pro shop. Bargain on golf now. Will play again next trip.

Went on Golf Now and was able to book this course for $40. Which was amazing price for this course in Las Vegas. There was a foursome playing behind us who was paying when we came in to get our cart and they had paid $70 each with cart. Sorry they didn't get onto Golf Now and book it. Talked with them while we were waiting to tee off and told them what we paid and they were alittle up set but now they know. lol

The course was in great shape and we had a perfect day for golf. The high for the day was 83 degrees and very little wind. Who gets that in Las Vegas in the middle of June.

Course was in great shape considering the Vegas Area was already getting into triple digits. The fairways were lush and had plenty of green grass, rough lies were fluffy about 2 in deep and very very easy to play from. Bunkers were all well manicured, and had great railroad tie "sun" patterns on many of them. Greens rolled very well, however were somewhat slow at about 8-9. The slower greens made them very easy to putt and chip onto. Overall, course was in excellent shape. Service on golf course was excellent and very attentive. Practice facility is top notch, as they have 2 separate practice areas. Paiute is always a great option, played the Snow and Wolf last year and they were very memorable.

Love this course. 2nd time playing and the pace of play leaves much to be desired. Tons of waiting. Also, with the weather getting so hot - - the mosquitoes were out in full force.
