Sun Mountain at Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort tops Power Rankings for the week of Nov. 9

One of the three courses at Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort is back on top of Power Rankings.

The three Pete Dye designs at this facility just north of Las Vegas have a stranglehold on the top spots in the Las Vegas destination guide on Golf Advisor. Sun Mountain, the second course built of the three, continues to hold its own. In the past six months, 22 of 26 reviews have awarded it five stars.

In addition to being a pure golf facility without a residential component, Paiute's three courses don't have a transition season in the fall, as they keep rye grass all year round, making it a particularly good bet for Vegas golfers in the fall months as many other facilities grass in rye over their summer Bermuda grass.

Paiute is a familiar name in Power Rankings, but there are a few first-time courses in the list this week (a New York golf course even took advantage of some balmy weather to make the rankings). You can view the full list below, as well as the most active courses.
