Las Vegas Paiute's Snow Mountain golf course tops Power Rankings for the week of March 2

Few things go together hand in hand more than March Madness hoops and Las Vegas, and with one week to go before the wild first weekend, Las Vegas golf courses are already aplenty among the top-rated courses of the week.

A week to go and they've got their game face. Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort's Snow Mountain Course topped all U.S. courses overall, while Chimera Golf Club, TPC Las Vegas (last week's top course) and Desert Pines Golf Club all found themselves in the top 10 in overall or in conditions.

Blueblood destinations Orlando, Fla. and Phoenix-Scottsdale also recorded multiple entries, which is hardly surprising. Here's the true Cinderella story, however: Eagle Sticks, in central Ohio, checked in at no. 6 in the U.S. Quite impressive considering it's early March.

Top 10 overall courses in the U.S.

1. Snow Mountain at Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort, Las Vegas
2. Waldorf Astoria Golf Club, Orlando, Fla.
