Power Rankings: Vegas favorite leads top-rated golf courses for the month of October

October is a transitional month for many golf destinations. Many desert courses in southwest spots like Las Vegas and Scottsdale prep their courses with extensive overseeding procedures. Meanwhile, courses in the north get the last few rounds of the year in as the leaves turn color and fall. Golfers fret over the potential of an early snowfall that may shut down their local haunts for the season.

It's fitting that the the best course of the month, based on your ratings and reviews, is a course that manages to skirt the ails of a transitional season. Las Vegas Paiute, located north of the strip, has earned a reputation as a rare opportunity to enjoy the cooler weather of fall golf without the cumbersome aspects of transitional conditions. The course is set at a higher elevation than Vegas and maintains its course Rye grass all year long.

There are many no-brainer tips we give golfers at Golf Advisor and one of them is that if you're headed to Vegas in the fall, when other courses are closed or soggy and cart-path only, look no further than Paiute.

You can view the full top ten courses, determined by analyzing your ratings and reviews submitted during the month of October, below.
