Forget everything you've heard about that gentler, kinder Pete Dye at Paiute. When you step onto the Wolf Course at the Las Vegas Paiute Resort, the legendary architect with the cold hacker heart returns. And then some. The newest of the three Paiute courses, comes in at a staggering 7,604 yards.

And it's an isolated 7,604 yards. You don't only get lost in your round here. You could almost literally get lost in the desert with a few wrong turns off the cart path. Drives that go flying off target deep into the desert areas are unlikely to found by another human ever. A rattlesnake might be keeping your Pro V1s company for the rest of their days. This is stunning scenery, capable of leaving the most cynical hacker open mouthed.

Paiute Wolf is just a far enough drive away from the Sin City hustle that it's likely the top, high-end course you can easily get on last minute in the Vegas valley. It also might be the best of them all.

Excellent course. Tough layout but fun. Really enjoyed the #15 par 3 with an island green.

All the Paiute courses should be on your bucket list

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 in the 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.

Not course Booked

When I arrived for tee time an hour before I went to check in and was told I was not on the sheet . The other parties I was booked with were not on the sheet either. We were scheduled to play Wolf but Golfnow had doubled booked that tee time. The course just happened to be talking to Golfnow over the same issue on the previous day. The course scrambled to find me a tee time on the sister course although they were not obligated.to. I called Golfnow while waiting and explained the problem. Rep was nice enough to give future promos . Golfnow Rep Stated they don't like taking calls from this course because they do not like Golfnow. Course says same about Golfnow. It is a blame game but the Course was very professional about it. All I can say Is the course I played "SNOW" was very nice. Maybe Golfnow needs to verify availability and confirmations more closing before booking.

Great track

Course was in fantastic shape- greens were fast and pure. 4.5 hour pace of play- so not awful but not great.

could have done without the starter giving me a quiz in my political affiliation after he declared his and how unhappy he was with the other party trying to move into the area. Staff beyond that was great

First class operation

As we walked from our car to the clubhouse we were met by the proshop guys who took our clubs and put them on our cart. There were many people who were willing to help and were very friendly. Bottled water was in our cart cooler with ice.
Unlimited range balls were included in the greens fee. They also have a nice chipping area with a practice bunker.
We were paired up with a member who was a real nice guy. There is a ranger on the course to keep play moving.
The course was in excellent shape from tee to green even though it was only January. I cannot imagine how nice it is during the summer months.
There are some really beautiful views on the course. The island green was a fun hole, set up just like Sawgrass.

The price point for the course is a bit higher than some others in Vegas but it's worth it. This is a must play.

After we finished our round the proshop guy took our clubs to the secure bag pick up area where they will keep them until you are ready to pick them up. This was a nice touch and very much appreciated.

There are two other courses at Paiute which I would love to play in the future. We will be back when we make our next trip to Vegas.

Expect a SLOW round

For once, minimal wind which makes for a better experience. However, spoiled by slow pace of play. Almost 5 hours.
The ranger kept saying pace was good, should finish in 4:15, then 4:30. Yeah right, he had the nerve of saying to slow down as the group in front was complaining of being pushed though had no problem spending 10 minutes to buy from drinks from the cart girl.
No wonder it takes so long to finish, when rangers tell you to slow down, now come on... ridiculous. TPC is much harder course and the pace is always just over 4 hours.

Amazing course!!!!!!!

Went on one of the worst weather days possible but the course was still amazing. Course was very well maintained. Fairways were beautiful and greens were as well. Staff was great and cheerful even with the weather conditions. Will deffinately return when the weather is better but to me it was still worth the money even in the wind and cold. A must play.

Wolf is a must play.

Pauite golf is a great place to play the three courses each offer a completely different test you absolutely couldn't go wrong doing a three day golf outing.

Everything Breaks to the Strat

A weekend forecast for warm temps and barely a breeze made me instantly think of Paiute. I easily booked through their website which also included their upcoming maintenance schedule. A small detail that would be nice to see adopted more widely. The drive was 33 minutes from the south strip which by some local’s standards is a distance that should require an overnight stay. The weather lived up to the hype and was sunny, warm and calm, perfect.

Upon arrival at the bag drop I was attended to right away. In the pro shop, the logoed merchandise selection in both brand and product options is second to none. The check in process was quick and simple and my clubs were waiting for me outside on an EZ-Go cart with GPS, USB ports and a cooler with water & ice.

Near the first tee is the practice facility hosting the all grass range that was loaded with balls in near new condition and targets to launch them at. The short game green was firm & fast and also help expose the valley effect. The putting green is large and the pace mirrored that of the on course condition.

I rolled up to the staging area of the first tee to meet up with the starter. He got me grouped, set up with a wet towel and on my way on time. Today, tees were going into the ground at the yellow markers which play at 6483y. The turf conditions from tee box to green complex was outstanding. I was catching & releasing rye grass lawn trouts all day from the lush fairways and when I strayed into the rough I often had a really good lie to work from. The bunkers were filed with sand and raked. The greens played great! They held on distance shots and grabbed chips and pitches. However, when the ball started rolling it had a hard time stopping. A soft putting stroke is all it took to get the ball moving, so leave the ham fists at home. The layout is solid and provided a decent challenge from the yellow markers while the GPS was handy to have and getting a flat lie is gift so use it well. The setup for the day was done well with both tucked and very gettable pins.

Marshalls made their rounds keeping you informed of the pace of play, which just by knowing they are aware was somewhat comforting. We covered the front in 2h17m and chased it with 2h33m on the back. No course record, but mostly tolerable for a busy Saturday. The addition of targets for wedge distances on the range would round out a solid practice facility. The beverage cart made plenty of passes while the halfway house is right on the way to the 10 tee so it was no problem staying topped off. Every staff member I encountered was welcoming, cordial, helpful, and appreciative.

The overall experience from start to finish was absolutely top notch and consistent from my other plays at Paiute. That being said, makes this a must play when in Southern Nevada.

The best course in the ls Vegas area if not in the whole state

Great course. Layout is fun

Played from the black tees. So the course is pretty long.

The staff is awesome and the starters very communicative.

I absolutely love this course, was well worth the trip outside of Vegas! I found it much more enjoyable than typical Adesert golf. Well worth the $149 greens fee that I paid! Would definitely recommend it to anyone who loves golf, five stars!!

Worth every penny

From start to finish one of the best golf experiences I’ve had. Arrived early and had a great breakfast in the dining area. Spent an hour at the range, which included unlimited range balls, chipping and putting areas that were all top notch. Also bunker practice area. The WOLF course was pristine in shape and playability. The wind howled all day, which actually enhanced the experience. Loved it and will absolutely try the other two courses on another trip to Vegas.
