        Golf Course Overview

        Nuzzled at the base of the Spring Mountains in the pristine desert of Southern Nevada, the Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort offers its guests serenity and tranquility as they play each of its three 18-hole, championship courses. Snow Mountain, Sun Mountain and Wolf, each designed by world-renowned golf course architect Pete Dye, make up a resort that was awarded four of the inaugural Fairway Awards from the readers of VegasGolfer in 2002. Golf World chose Pete Dye, the designer of 11 of the world's top 100 courses, as architect of the year in 1994. He is known for incorporating Scotland course features, such as small greens, undulating fairways and deep native roughs, into his own designs, including the courses at the Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort.

        The inaugural layout for the multi-course resort is the Snow Mountain course, which was named after nearby Snow Mountain. Opened to the public in 1995, the par 72 course features wide ryegrass fairways, a variety of tee lengths and angles, and natural areas separating each hole. Railroad ties are inlaid to form strategic bunkers and the tee markers are in the shape of desert tortoises, which have spiritual significance to the Paiutes. With four sets of tees for varying abilities, Snow Mountain measures 7,146 yards from the back tees with a USGA slope of 125 and a USGA rating of 73.9. From the front tees the course stretches 5,341 yards with a slope of 117 and a rating of 70.4.

        The second layout included at the resort is the Sun Mountain course, which opened in August of 1996. The course, only Dye's second design in Nevada, features perennial ryegrass fairways and roughs and bentgrass greens. The par 72 course measures 7,112 yards from the back tees with a USGA slope of 130 and a USGA rating of 73.3. Four sets of tees are available on this course, as well. The course measures 5,465 yards from the front tees with a slope of 123 and a rating of 71.0.

        The third layout at the resort is the Wolf course, which opened in November of 2001 and is the longest course in the state of Nevada. LPGA greats Sorenstam and Webb played the inaugural round in Shell's Wonderful World of Golf match, which aired on ESPN.

        The course also features perennial ryegrass fairways and roughs and bentgrass greens. The par 72 course measures 7,604 yards from the back tees, with a USGA slope of 149 and a USGA rating of 76.3. Five sets of tees are available at Wolf for all levels of play. From the front tees the course measures 5,130 yards with a slope of 116 and a rating of 68.8.
