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.

I am visiting Vegas and wanted to play a few quality courses. I saw the reviews for Paiute, and I was very excited. I had to rent clubs, and for $70 I would expect there would be a 5-wood in the bag. The clubs were decent TaylorMade’s, but when I requested the 5-wood, they offered me a 9-hybrid. I asked for a demo model and they told me they didn’t have any while they look down their noses at me. The pro shop staff need to take a lesson in customer service since that’s the industry that they are in. The starter, Brent, and the gentleman checking in carts we’re the only two who offered any bit of customer service. They were both excellent. Overall the course was very nice, I would definitely play there again if I had my own clubs with me.

Course conditions were fantastic, pace of play was great(a little under 4 hours for a foursome). The service is top notch from the entire staff(bag drop, starters, cart girl, etc..) only issue we had was the cart died on the 16th hole and we had to wait 10 minutes to get a replacement to finish the round. Will be back on the next trip to Vegas to play the Wolf!

A spectacular complex out in the desert about 30 miles northwest of the strip. Beautiful clubhouse, friendly staff, nice restaurant. The course conditions were outstanding, greens, fast and true and not tricked up. Stunning views, the fairways are plush and the rough thick, at least an extra club if in the rough. GPS system is top of the line. Great replay rate for the other courses in the complex. Will always play it on any trip to Vegas.

Always a great venue. Wind was not a factor (can be brutal). First time playing Snow course. Played other two in the past, Snow is just as enjoyable. Conditions were excellent, staff were great.

Take the ride, enjoy the experience.

The snow course was in great shape, fairways like carpet, as usual. I'm a pretty solid putter, so my only issue was that the greens were rolling inconsistent, it was very hard to get the speed correct, but likely some of that was due to operator error!

This facility is top notch and while it’s in the middle of nowhere, it only took me 35 minutes to get there from the Encore. I came out as a solo and was paired up with few guys who play the course regularly. They were very welcoming and even took time to give me the lay of the land, which was amazingly beautiful! The new golf carts have GPS systems, which was great, and the course was in great shape from sand bunker to tee box.

We were on an annual trip with friends to Las Vegas which always includes a round of golf. We play a different course every year. This was the best in 7 years. Course was in perfect condition. The staff were friendly and helpful and the backdrop of the mountains made for beautiful views. Played the Snow course. We are occasional golfers but the course was still reasonable in difficulty. Would definitely play the rest of the course on a later trip.

I was in Vegas and looking for somewhere to play. Looking through all the courses this resort just reached out to me. This course was in the best condition of any course I’ve played including TPC, Palm Springs, Hilton Head and Florida. Tees, fairways, and greens were like carpets. Course is beautiful with the desert and mountains scenery. Staff was so nice from the outside staff, snack bar, starter, ranger and inside staff. Just a short pleasant drive from near the Vegas strip. Being an old guy from Memphis, I whole heartedly recommend these courses to anyone regardless of skill level.
