LAS VEGAS, Nev. (July 8, 2018)–The name Pete Dye is synonymous with great golf courses. With more than 250 layouts designed worldwide, Dye has left a lasting impression the golf world embraces. And we’ve got three of his beauties right here in Las Vegas. And all of them are located at the impressive Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort. Haven’t teed it up there yet? You’re definitely missing out. — By Bill Bowman, Las Vegas Golf Insider staff.
All three courses–that’s 54 Dye-namic or Dye-abolical golf holes–at the Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort (Snow Mountain, Sun Mountain and Wolf) feature risk/reward holes. Add in Dye’s signature railroad tie bunkering as well as dramatic water features and you’ve got a resort that has the variety, views and challenges players crave.
“Pete Dye is world-renown for his designs and vision,” said Ayeesha McKeany, director of marketing. “When we finally finished our three courses, it only helped solidify Vegas as a golf destination because now you have Vegas courses built by the best of the best with the likes of Dye, Fazio, Jones and Nicklaus just to name a few.”
The resort is also a very affordable place for players to tee it up. A recent Golf Advisor ratings report had all three LV Paiute courses in the top 10 of affordable courses Dye has designed. Snow Mountain (No. 1), Sun Mountain (No. 3) and Wolf (No. 8) give players great bang for the buck.
Oh. And for good measure, the Wolf course is also rated as the No. 9 course in Dye’s stable for difficulty. Affordable and a challenge–does it get any better?
There are also more options and chances to save money with their GolfAPalooza and Bounce Back rates letting players tee it up on the same course, or one of the other two, at a reduced rate. Click for Las Vegas Paiute rates to check out rates and specials.
The Snow Mountain Course is the original and opened in 1995. Water comes into play on seven of the holes and has a finishing three-hole stretch (a par-3, a par-5 and a daunting par-4 as the closer) that will challenge players to finish strong.
The second course that opened is the Sun Mountain layout, which was unveiled in 1996. It is looked at as the more player-friendly layout by many residents and visitors. The 18th hole can often make or break a round as a pond skirts the left side and a couple of bunkers add to the difficulty.
On the other side of the resort, the Wolf is a powerhouse design stretching out to 7,604 yards. The picture-postcard par-3 15th features an island green that will test players’ accuracy and nerves.
There you have it: Three distinct courses designed by one of the best in the world. The Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort may be just minutes away from the Las Vegas Strip, but it features three layouts that are worlds away from ordinary.
