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.

Took advantage on a sale price to play Snow course. Came early for breakfast with my wife who also played. No wind today but still purchased a wind breaker in the store at the club house. ( to Management, offer a good price to play your course, many of the golfers com out and fill up your restaurant and buy stuff at the store). Called a win win in my book.

This Pete Dye design was a delight. While not as quintessentially Pete Dye the greens reminded me of every Dye course, fast and they can hard to read if you're anticipating a big breaking putt. What gives this course a sixth star is the incredible mountainous vistas of massive alluvial vans contrasting with this challenging course. The winds today added an additional 10 strokes.

So peaceful, serene. Well laid out golf course in the middle of the desert....no traffic noise or houses. Great separation by the desert from other fairways. Felt like we were alone on the course until we caught up to the foursome ahead. Pace was good.

Course was in great shape with fast, true rolling greens. Lots of roll on the fairways with yardage markers every 50 yards + cart GPS. Staff from pro shop check-in, to cart girl, to starter, to marshall are super friendly and are most willing to help. All around great day with lovely scenery.

Great experience all-around. The course staff from the front desk to the outside services were very nice and accommodating. The courses are tough if you miss fairways when you get in the desert areas but I was fortunate to find my 3 shots that went into the waste area.

The greens were fast but extremely fair. The maintenance team does an amazing job keeping the grass despite the desert conditions. The attention to detail with grass up against event the cart paths really stood out for me.

The only tough variable that I didn't have is wind. If the wind was heavy when I played it would have been really challenging.

Three 18 holes of golf in the middle of nowhere? Why not. Played on a Wed AM during Thanksgiving week. Fun layout and well kept. Greens were little sandy. Of the 3 tracks, Snow is my fav, just challenging enough but still keeping it fun. Few risk and reward holes. And not every green is elevated like the Wolf.
