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.

Paiute is the gem of Las Vegas

After attending the PGA event this weekend at TPC Summerlin and seeing the course quality there we went out for a round at Paiute Sun today. The wind was forecast down today so seemed like a perfect day as it can get quite windy out there. After an easy 20 minute drive we were greated by the very friendly bag staff and pro shop. The course conditions as usual are immaculate and every bit as fine as what the pros were getting at TPC. The course was full but pace of play moveed right along. Fairways were pristine, Greens were a bit slow, sand immaculate, range conditions hitting off grass were perfect. Concession staff very nice and lunch afterwards was great. We played Sun Mountain which was a perfect test presenting lots of risk/reward for we mid handicappers so was a really fun day. Thanks Paiute!

Sun Mountain

Magnificent. I have played regularly in LV over last 10 years and this is a must play trio. Outstanding conditions and lightning fast greens. Have your bump-n-run shot ready and defensive downhill putting or you’re in for trouble. Play reasonable tees as challenges lies in approach shots and chipping/putting at Paiute Resort. Really good complex just outside Vegas.

Golf at its best

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. If your visiting Vegas a must course to play. Weather was perfect as the winds were calm. Great day of golf.
