There are three championship courses at Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort, all of which were designed by Pete Dye. Snow Mountain is the original course, joined by Sun Mountain, which is considered the easiest of the three, and Wolf is the newest and most challenging.

At over 7,600 yards, Wolf is also the longest course in Nevada but Snow Mountain is quite lengthy as well at 7,146 yards. Dye incorporated his signature railroad-tie bunkers and water comes into play on seven holes. This risk-reward layout is known for having the best par-3s at the resort. One of these is the stunning 16th hole with its panoramic view of Sheep Mountain. It requires a long carry over water but the bailout area to the right provides a relatively easy up and down and the greenside bunkers don't usually come into play.

Also known as Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort - Nu-Wav-Kaiv Course.

Best conditions in LV

Played here today in around 4 hrs. This is THE best course conditions I've seen it in ages. The rough is penalizing, fairways are well taken care of and greens are fast.

Paiute never disappoints. Yes, it's windy. Get over it. It's worth coming here to play/ practice. Staff gets an A++++ with covid precautions.

A MUST PLAY - best course conditions by far unless you're a member at a private club.

Best of the 3

Snow Mountain is the best of the 3 courses at Paiute in my opinion. This was my 2nd time playing it and I now like it even more. Be warned I will be back.

Best Value in Vegas

The original course at the Paiute resort still holds up today. It is imminently more playable than the Wolf course and has lots of risk/reward opportunities that keep players engaged throughout. Holes like 1, 3, and 7 are the prime examples of this. Other holes like 16 and 18 simply demand good shots if you want to make par. The course was in immaculate condition and the greens were the perfect speed for the slopes they had. This is likely the most enjoyable of the three courses at Paiute and I would play it again in a heartbeat. The Golfapalooza package is a tremendous deal which gets you 36 holes of golf and lunch for a very reasonable price.

All the Paiute Courses are great and some of the best golfing ever

I played Snow, Sun and Wolf on the same week and honestly, all 3 were the same level of excellence and loved all of them. While I played Snow and Sun early int he week when the wind was whipping hard it was fun. Wolf was Thursday the same week and calm by that time and the Island Green was excellent. You could pick any of the 3, play it forward depending on your handicap and it will be a top 10 golf experience for sure.

Absolutely stunning

A little north of Vegas and this resort is golf heaven. An absolute must play. We played snow mountain in the morning and the wolf in the afternoon. Great value for your money and the course was in immaculate condition. Greens were firm and rolled true. Very playable and no tricked up holes. Will definitely be back.

Out of town

This course is a ways out of Las Vegas but it is worth the trip. The course maintenance is great and the layout is tremendous. The practice area (balls included in price) is first rate with chipping area and large putti g green. Every worker we came in contact with said “good morning” with a smile. Pro shop is well stocked.

Great Course

The course is amazing. Enjoyed the round with my friends visiting from Canada. They sure want to come back and play the Sun Mountain and perhaps The Wolf next time. My home course is at Reflection Bay which is pretty amazing, but Paiute is totally different in a very pleasant way. Will make that drive across town again to play here.

Great value at a great course

This course is worth the easy 25 min drive from the Vegas strip. Great course layout and in great shape.... Greens are beautiful but fast... Hot deal on GN worked out great! Very fair course in terms of layout and risk/reward, but plays tougher than the slope rating indicates. Definitely worth the stop if you're in the area!
