Detailed description of Paiute Golf Resort, Wolf Course

Las Vegas Paiute Resort is a 54-hole golf facility located in Las Vegas, Nevada. The facility has three 18-hole championship courses, Wolf Course, Sun Mountain, and Snow Mountain.

Wolf Course

The longest course in Nevada.

The newest and most-difficult layout challenges the long ball hitters at 7,604 total yards. This is the longest course in Nevada. It promises an amazing golf experience, thanks to its length, the beauty of its natural desert surroundings, and its stunning island green on the fifteenth hole. Annika Sorenstam and Karrie Webb officially opened the course by competing in Shell's Wonderful World of Golf and shot 65 and 64 respectively. Golfers of all skill levels can come and try to take a bite out of the infamous WOLF by tempering the challenge with five tee options at various yardages.

Sun Mountain

Shining at 7,112 total yards is the tamest of the courses, but the holes are every bit as good. A kinder, gentler Dye design, it's depicted by natural rolling terrain and enchanting scenery. Many golfers hail the Sun as their favorite because they feel like they are on the edge of nature due to the location of the course being completely away from the resort's interior. The 12th is brilliant even on a cloudy day because of the monstrous mountain backdrop, indigenous desert landscape, and sweeping slope changes, which will advise a player to think before swinging. Golfers will warm to the experience on the Sun since the course also offers four tee options.

Snow Mountain

Paiute's original course, storms in at 7,164 total yards, it has wide ryegrass fairways, seven holes with water hazards, and a progressive layout, meaning there are no parallel fairways. Featuring traditional Dye railroad tie-decorated bunkers and dogleg finishing holes. Some golfers still feel the original is the best of the three. The 16th, a par 3, is a delight and the 18th, which flanks the Clubhouse, presents a welcomed challenge with water hazards and compelling yardage. Various skill levels will feel the comfort that comes with the Snow since the course has four tee options.

Day 10 - 100 days, 100 courses (Saturday, March 23, 2019)

Last week, I was speaking with Kevin Hyland of TeeOff by the PGA Tour, and he informed me that Paiute was the best course that I would play on during my tour. Now that is a bold statement given some of the courses that are on the list: TPC Sawgrass, Coyote Springs, Maderas, I could go on and on, but there are a lot of nice courses on the list.

Paiute is in the desert north of Las Vegas. You drive and drive and see nothing resembling a golf course.

About a mile out you start to see glimpses of fairways carved into the rocks and scrubs and then you finally see the clubhouse above. When you walk into the clubhouse, you see out the back glass wall something special.

No matter what direction you look there are mountains that are awe-inspiring. The course is carved out of this desert valley. There is fairway, then maybe 10 - 40 feet of rough and then rocky desert. If your ball leaves the rough, it's gone! Golf balls and desert rocks look a lot alike.

And what is it with Pete Dye and island greens. I am beginning to believe that he got paid by golf ball manufacturers (I'm looking at you Callaway) to build these things just so we all would use more balls. (Yes, Don, I lost 2 Tin Cup style).

However, the most intimidating thing about Paiute Golf Resort was the wind.

We teed off on number 1 directly into the wind and quickly learned to adjust to the wind coming right at you. However, when there was a 30 MPH crosswind like we had on the island green, it was hard to adjust for the wind.

All in all, it was a very fun and challenging day.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: Better than average course for the area

The course was in beautiful condition. The layout was challenging enough and hilly enough on the edges where if you miss the fairway you would have a lot of side hill lies. However there was enough room off the tee box in the rough where you can usually find your ball. Every hole was separate from the others. The holes were all challenging but fair. No hole was too easy or too hard. We will definitely play there again. Bottom line though is that the conditions were fantastic. Nice dark green grass and well manicured bunkers.

Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Expensive and worth it

Fantastic condition. Greens super fast (11+) but rolled perfectly. Really great experience. Desert view not necessarily great but interesting layout. Clubhouse has decent food, slightly pricey food though. Absolutely worth price. many vegas courses are seriously overpriced but this one is fantastic and well worth playing over and over again.

Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Ranks with the best in this price level, Bargain priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

Course is a bit of drive, but very nice to play and price is not bad for the area. Can get windy, but the wide fairways allow lots of room to keep it in play. Staff were very friendly and the pro shop prices/snack bar prices were better than any others I've seen in Las Vegas. Listen to the starter for advice on the direction balls will break on the greens, they are always right!

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy

I played in very windy conditions and a couple of balls rolled just through a dogleg fairway and were very differcult to find. In fact, I was unable to locate one ball even thought both my playing partner and myself actually saw it barely roll into the dessert area. I suggest the course consider cutting this area to under a foot tall for the ability to locate wayward tee shots.

Good conditions and a nice $149 price for all you can golf plus lunch. No houses. Solid test of golf without a lot of tricks.
