Forget everything you've heard about that gentler, kinder Pete Dye at Paiute. When you step onto the Wolf Course at the Las Vegas Paiute Resort, the legendary architect with the cold hacker heart returns. And then some. The newest of the three Paiute courses, comes in at a staggering 7,604 yards.

And it's an isolated 7,604 yards. You don't only get lost in your round here. You could almost literally get lost in the desert with a few wrong turns off the cart path. Drives that go flying off target deep into the desert areas are unlikely to found by another human ever. A rattlesnake might be keeping your Pro V1s company for the rest of their days. This is stunning scenery, capable of leaving the most cynical hacker open mouthed.

Paiute Wolf is just a far enough drive away from the Sin City hustle that it's likely the top, high-end course you can easily get on last minute in the Vegas valley. It also might be the best of them all.

Also known as Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort - Kwetoo-Unuv Course.

Las Vegas Strip Detox at Paiute

At some point on the drive from the Las Vegas Strip north to Las Vegas Paiute, all development, the lights, the shops, the billboards, fade away. It's just you and the desert. Then, you catch a glimpse of a golf course on the right, and you're there in no time.

What a refreshing piece of Las Vegas, Paiute is. No slot machines or bright lights or residential development. Even the beer prices are cheap! ($2.50 PBRs, $3 domestics).

There is a small army of attentive staff everywhere you look (at the clubhouse and on the course), and the place couldn't be run smoother. There are two(!) driving ranges.

On to golf. The misconception is that the Wolf, as the newest and longest course of the three Pete Dye designs here, is the toughest. But that's hardly the case. Greens are larger and landing areas seem wider (at least, you get the sense you can swing away on most holes). It's certainly playable, but Dye, as he is wont to do, makes you earn your pars with your approach shots.

The Wolf is the #1 course currently on Golf Advisor. If you couldn't tell, I certainly endorse that. I also recommend that you big golf junkies stick around and play 36.

Best in the desert

This wolf coarse was in immaculate condition.
Wind kicked up and became even more difficult.
Greens were like greased lightning, many 3-4 putting.

Would love to play the other 36 holes also

Finally played the coarse in great weather

I've played this course numerous times when I would come out to Vegas for trade shows. This year, due to Covid, the show was pushed back to June instead of February. The wind is a big factor in the winter. In June it was barely menacing. I was worried about the heat in Vegas in June but at 99º it wasn't even noticeable.
