The original Snow Mountain course at Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort remains a thrill ride

LAS VEGAS -- The Snow Mountain Course at Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort offers just what every golfer wants -- a stunning desert golf layout at affordable prices.

Plus, add in the fact that it's just you and nature and you've got the makings for a relaxing golf outing. There are no houses on the course, no cars, no construction -- it's just you and the wildlife that calls the desert home.

The Snow Mountain layout is the original of the three Paiute courses (along with the Sun Mountain and the Wolf layouts -- all three Pete Dye designs). At 7,164 yards from the tips, it has all the challenge a golfer can want and some of the best par 3s you'll find. Add in the famous (or infamous) Dye railroad-tie bunkers along with water on seven holes, rolling fairways, elevation changes and you'll find your golf game will certainly be tested. Oh, and don't forget to take in those majestic mountain views.

The golf resort, located north of the famed Las Vegas Strip, is an ideal spot to get away from the hustle and bustle of your visit to Sin City. And with playing specials the resort offers, you'll certainly be back to play the other two layouts. Or, make a day of it and play two of the three courses in the same day.
