Type Resort
At the Sun Mountain course at the Las Vegas Paiute Resort, Pete Dye uses the rolling terrain in an almost links-style design. Straying from fairways can put you in the fescue grass, but this isn't the ball-gobbling fescue you'd expect from Dye. If anything Sun Mountain plays easier than Snow Mountain. The 140 slope rating from the back tees might even seem a little inflated when you're out on the course. Which isn't to say it's a complete pushover. It's still a Dye after all. It still has bunkers you'll remember. Or lose sleep over. Take the green-guarding bunker on the 219-yard par-3 14th. It is so steep in front that you almost have to hit the ball straight up in the air to get it out successfully. Some hackers become so unnerved by this bunker that they hit out backward, going back toward the fairway to escape. Yes, even at his kindler, gentler best, Pete Dye can make golfers retreat on a course. Sun does not hit you with much water, but it makes good use of the vast Paiute landscape. There are huge desert areas between the holes, giving each hole a sense of isolation. You're not going to be observing someone's shank on a parallel fairway.

Beautiful!

My favorite course at Paiute! Several beautiful holes wrapping around water. The course was in perfect shape and the green rolled perfectly. If you have never experienced Las Vegas Paiute, I highlight recommend it. The staff was amazing and the practice facility was top notch.

Great Facility

The Sun Course is my second favorite at Paiute. The greens roll wonderfully and the course conditioning is great. You can't beat the quiet surroundings and the wonderful views of the mountains.

Hot time in the desert

I was lucky enough to tee off at 6:30a for my round, I was even luckier to play with a local that knew the layout. It's a great course but can be confusing when standing on the tee box looking out into the desert unless you know the course and can pick a target. Like I said, having a local play with me probably saved me 2-3 strokes a side. Unbelievable track, great property, worth the drive from Vegas.

Awesome without being pretentious

I love Paiute! The staff there is awesome as well as the conditions. Such a contrast between the rugged desert and the pristine course. The non resident rate is a bit of a gouge but you can usually get a deal on Golf Now that is closer to the much more reasonable resident rate. Happy to play it on a calm day as it can be a killer in the wind which happens often.

The County Sligo Golf Club is widely regarded as one of the great championship links courses. It is located in the picturesque seaside village of Rosses Point just 8km from Sligo and known locally as "The Point".

I had a cold so I was a ride along.

My friends had a great time and COULD NOT STOP exclaiming how amazing and beautiful it was. Everyone is super nice and the facilities were very welcoming. My only complaint is that there is no soup in the spring at the onsite restaurant. A very small detail but blame my summer cold for this one.
