Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort is home to the only three signature Pete Dye courses in Nevada, and golfers love each layout. So much so, their reviews–of more than 300,000 total on Golf Pass–helped Snow Mountain, Sun Mountain and the Wolf each earn distinction among the top 50 courses in the U.S. by Golf Pass. Here’s a sampling about what the golfers had to say.
Snow Mountain – #5
The first of Las Vegas Paiute’s three courses, Snow Mountain debuted in 1995. It’s regarded as a gentler test, especially by architect Pete Dye’s standards, with a back-tee Slope of a relatively tame 126. Water still comes into play on seven holes, delivering a balanced challenge.
What they’re saying: “Super nice fairways, Great Greens! The greens were on the firm side and real fast. Course played tough, it was a nice challenge with an amazing view!” – jmcalpin4
Sun Mountain – #19
Golfers enjoy a sense of seclusion at Sun Mountain, which, built in 1996, is the middle-child course at Las Vegas Paiute. The expansive landscape lends a sense of isolation to most holes, and several deep bunkers lurk by fairways and greens.
What they’re saying: “Could not have had a better experience playing golf. Friendly staff. Course in pristine conditions. Greens were fast and true. Being off the green but close can still be a challenge.” – garywint
The Wolf – #25
Half an hour northwest of the Las Vegas Strip sits this 54-hole complex, whose three Pete Dye designs all appear in the top half of this year’s Golfers’ Choice Top 50 list. Of them, the Wolf is the newest, built in 2001. Measuring more than 7,600 yards from the tips, it is a beast, but golfers dig it nevertheless.
What they’re saying: “Great course. Tough layout then add the wind! Will definitely play again” – golfer review
