About

Holes 18
Type Resort
Style Desert/Links
Par 72
Length 7112 yards
Slope 140
Rating 73.4

At the Sun Mountain course at the Las Vegas Paiute Resort, Pete Dye uses the rolling terrain in an almost links-style design.

Straying from fairways can put you in the fescue grass, but this isn't the ball-gobbling fescue you'd expect from Dye. If anything Sun Mountain plays easier than Snow Mountain. The 140 slope rating from the back tees might even seem a little inflated when you're out on the course.

Which isn't to say it's a complete pushover. It's still a Dye after all. It still has bunkers you'll remember. Or lose sleep over.

Take the green-guarding bunker on the 219-yard par-3 14th. It is so steep in front that you almost have to hit the ball straight up in the air to get it out successfully. Some hackers become so unnerved by this bunker that they hit out backward, going back toward the fairway to escape. Yes, even at his kindler, gentler best, Pete Dye can make golfers retreat on a course.

Sun does not hit you with much water, but it makes good use of the vast Paiute landscape. There are huge desert areas between the holes, giving each hole a sense of isolation. You're not going to be observing someone's shank on a parallel fairway.

Also known as Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort - Tav-Ai-Kaiv Course.

Fun in the sun

We played the Sun Mountain course; there was no one ahead of us or behind us. The staff was amazing and the course was beautiful. I want to come back to play the other two courses.

Great course

Overall very happy with the course. Good layout and the fairways and greens were well maintained. I was a little unlucky and had to deal with 40 mph winds on the back nine, but other than that it was a fun day

Love the course, got to the 11th hole and had to wait 20 min to tee off every hole after that. Unacceptable! Left after the 13th hole

Best value I have found in Vegas

Without a doubt, the best value in Vegas. For $75, from the moment we arrived to the time we went home, all we kept thinking was "this was ONLY $75?!?"

We got lucky and had zero wind, and from what we know this course can get really windy so check your forecast. The course was in beautiful shape, played very well, and not once did we feel rushed.

Always the best

Pauite is first class. Everything is plush green and immaculate. All three courses are phenominal. I come to Vegas to golf every year and never miss playing here. This picture of the Sun course just sums it up. Shout out to Tanner in the pro shop!
