GOLF COURSE REVIEW: Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort

Looking for a great Las Vegas golf experience that won't break the bank? About a 25-30 minute drive from The Strip lies the Paiute Golf Resort, and it is well worth the drive.

The Paiute resort offers three world-class 18-hole courses highlighted by their signature Wolf course. True desert golf is a stunning and unique experience. Carpets of fairways and greens have been meticulously intertwined with the native desert landscape creating a wild and stunning mosaic of bright green with the brown hued colors of the desert.

For the seasoned golfer, the Wolf is the truest test out here, and even features an island green on the Par 3 15th! At 7,604 yards from the back tees, it will challenge all but the greatest golfers, but allows for all levels of play with five sets of tees. I can proudly claim one of my 3 career eagles came at this course with a short chip-in on the Par 5 6th.

Both of the other two courses provide an enjoyable round for everyone with reasonable challenges along with perfect conditioning. Named by the local Native American tribes, Nu-Wav-Kaiv (Snow Mountain) and Tav-Ai-Kaiv (Sun Mountain) are outstanding options for the average golfer.

Now is a great time to take advantage of the rates at Paiute. From June through the end of August, the Wolf is $99 (a deal for Vegas) and the other two are $79...OR you can choose the GOLFaPalooza 2009 special which gets you all day unlimited play along with lunch and 50% off rental clubs if needed for only $109 ($129 for the Wolf). Just click the link above and go to Rates for details.

Just to wet your whistle, here are a few pics from our round on the Snow Mountain course back in April 2003 while in Vegas for a bachelor party!


A lot of fun, and actually can save you some dough by keeping you away from the tables for 5-6 hours!

Fairways & Greens!

I have always enjoyed playing golf in Las Vegas whenever I visit. There are many courses that I would recommend. Each hole has its own unique qualities that make Las Vegas Golf so special.
