There are three championship courses at Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort, all of which were designed by Pete Dye. Snow Mountain is the original course, joined by Sun Mountain, which is considered the easiest of the three, and Wolf is the newest and most challenging.

At over 7,600 yards, Wolf is also the longest course in Nevada but Snow Mountain is quite lengthy as well at 7,146 yards. Dye incorporated his signature railroad-tie bunkers and water comes into play on seven holes. This risk-reward layout is known for having the best par-3s at the resort. One of these is the stunning 16th hole with its panoramic view of Sheep Mountain. It requires a long carry over water but the bailout area to the right provides a relatively easy up and down and the greenside bunkers don't usually come into play.

Also known as Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort - Nu-Wav-Kaiv Course.

Course conditions were excellent. Greens great speed and consistency. Maybe my favorite all around course. The water holes are intimidating and very memorable.

Perfect round, with only one tiny beef

It’s the best value in Vegas for golf. Bar none. This is the place to golf. Trust me. You’ll be glad you did.

My only complaint, and it’s a tiny one but to me it matters. You gotta have a hot dog for less than $10. I don’t want my hot dog wrapped in bacon, and I don’t want chips. Heck, I’d be fine with $8.

I wound up going down from the dining room to the turn shack and buying one from them bc the dining room has bacon wrapped dogs. $10 is too much. Otherwise, restaurant has great breakfast, the staff is good, and the courses are all spectacular.

Great course

Played this course on a golf trip with others. Despite my poor play, I still loved this course. The grounds crew has done a marvelous job maintaining the course condition despite a lot of play.

Just wow

I’ve played probably 100 or so different courses over my short 7 year career so far, and this makes my top 3. Unbelievable conditions and a layout that is just simply put, fun. Green are fast and not always easy to read…some of the greens are on the smaller side, too! This course is pretty easy to drive the ball in the fairway on, but the challenge is in the greens! Do not hesitate to come play this one. Well worth the $.

Snow Mountain

Beautiful, high desert views including snowy mountains.
Usually windy but this time, winter coolness tempered by nearly no wind till late afternoon. Challenging course with few straight fairways, some water. Only bad shots find desert terrain. Greens we're fast and mostly fair. Expensive for me .....

One of the bests.

Played Wolf a few years ago.
Played Snow on this trip and will play Sun next time. Absolutely one of the best courses around. Pace was a little slow for off season. Everyone had the itch to play on a nice day in January.

Very Good Course -- Worth a Visit in Vegas

We played 36 holes at Paiute -- Snow Mountain in the morning and Wolf in the afternoon. We had the first tee time of the day at 7:30AM and were paired up with two singles, and played in 3.5 hours as a foursome. Snow Mountain is a fun layout with some interesting holes and it was in good shape with some pretty fast greens. It was a little cold in the morning, but it warmed up quickly. If you are in Vegas on vacation, it's a good value for a public course and is worth playing.

Boring but in great condition

Sorry we didn’t find the course very interesting.
It was in very good condition but the layout is repetitive and uninteresting

Many more interesting courses for similar cost

Boring course, but in great shape

Sorry but we found the course boring and repetitive. Other than the lightning fast greens, the course is repetitive and flat.

Reviews mentioned moderate elevation changes. There is next to none.

There are much better course for less money in Vegas.

Great condition but a little boring

We played the Snow course on November 15. It was in nice condition but the layout is a little boring

There is very little challenge (except for the very very fast greens). Also not too much unique about the jokes. It felt very repetitive

For what there is, it’s over priced. Vegas and area has many more entertaining courses at similar or lower prices

First class operation

We enjoyed our round on the Snow course a great deal, there were some long challenging holes and some short "do or die" holes that made you think about your choices. We loved it.....just wish it wasn't so expensive...but that's Vegas.
