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.

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.

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.

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.

This is a fantastic facility. All 3 courses and the 2 practice facilities are in immaculate condition. Greens all roll very consistent to one another but are not overly challenging. Fairways are great, rough is challenging and penalizing but not impossible and the surrounding scenery all around you never gets old. Staff is plentiful and courteous.

The courses at Pauite are my favorite in Las Vegas. They are in the desert with Mountain views. The course was in great shape, required a variety of shots but was extremely fair while challenging. Staff was great, from check-in, directions to range and first tee, and letting me go play as a single starting on 10th tee.

As always the course was in incredible shape, fairways and greens well groomed, rough was long and treacherous and sand was fluffy and light. I always play at least one round at Paiute when i visit Las Vegas and this this time it was just as great as always.
