Holes 18

Par 72
Length 7112 yards
Slope 140
Rating 73.4

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.

Also known as Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort - Tav-Ai-Kaiv Course.

Paiute exceeds expectations

I'm a Clark Co. resident. Most of my usual courses are in the stages of overseeding, so I traveled the 50 minutes north to play Paiute Sun Mountain, one of three courses there. There's nothing I could possible complain about. Very nice practice facility, beautiful course layout in impeccable condition, played in 3 and one half hours. Friendly staff. Beverage carts on the course Nice clubhouse and restaurant with good food. I'll be back. If I lived closer, I'd make this my home course

Sun, Snow and Mountain

Amazing facility! The 19th hole needs a few improvements. PGA championship was on but no volume, the monitors are tiny and few. For a facility of this caliber the 19 hole should be up to the standards of the 3 amazing courses. Beautiful patio but no monitors, misters and the staff won’t serve you. I’m all about relaxing after a round of golf with my buddies in a setting that’s better than my living room. Take it to the next level and make golfers want to stay for more than one cocktail. I played 3 days that weekend and will go back! It’s about 10f cooler than the Vegas valley.

All of the Paiute course are bucket list courses!

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.

perfect golf course

My foursome kept praising my choice of Las vegas Paiute Sun Mountain course on our golf trip.Everything was great,except the temperature that day. Conditions were impeccable, The service top notch and the course very challenging but enjoyable.
A short drive from the strip and you are in an amazing venue, Scenery and layout are just too great to explain here. Do not miss out if you are in Vegas
