Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort - Sun Mountain Course
Punched and Sanded Greens Surprise!
There is nothing more disappointing than to check in at the Pro Shop and be told that the greens have just been punched and sanded! We were extremely disappointed at the condition of the greens which make up nearly 50% of your experience playing a round of golf. We were also very disappointed at the 'option' given to us to play a different course if we could wait another 90 minutes and play late in the afternoon on a very hot day! The Pro convinced us that the greens weren't 'that bad' and they would receive the ball well and roll fast, in retrospect I think he was just pulling my leg. The greens were terrible and our round was ruined. In review, my wife and I should have refused to play and asked for a refund. We came a long way to play at Paiute's Sun course and left very disappointed to say the least.

Desert golf at its best!
Had the opportunity to play wolf at Paiute and was impressed! 30 minutes from the Rio but an easy drive. If you didn't know course was there you'd miss it in the desert. At arrival staff was great and attentive. Driving range was enormous, widest I had ever seen. Unfortunately the greens were punched two weeks prior so I advise asking before playing. Played with a member who said this was the best of the 3 courses. Multiple memorable holes... I typically rank courses based on par 3's, and 3 of the 4 were great, including island green signature hole. Very windy day so be prepped to +/- 2 clubs. Enjoy!

Unreal...weather(bad) and Course (excellent)
The weather went VERY bad on use when we started this round on the Sun Course. Got to hole 5...and called it quits. Had white caps on the pond it was blowing so bad. However, the first 4 holes played GREAT, and the course was unreal beautiful. Probably one of the nicest courses i've played in and around Vegas. We ended up getting a raincheck and coming back and playing the Snow course. It too was a great round of golf!!! HIGHLY recommend this course to anyone!! I am a garbage golfer, and this course was forgiving enough for my game play, but was also tough enough to challenge the scratch golfers we were paired up with (they had a great time, or so they said). Really a great course!!

Scenic, Challenging, Fair
The course was in really good shape. You are able to see what you need to do from the tee-no blind shots or tricked up holes. Greens were fast and smooth. I would play here again.
The guy who checked us in at the pro shop was rude both times - he should be fired! Everyone else was great.

Fun even in bad weather
It rained, it blew, it got cold, but we enjoyed ourselves anyway. The starter allowed us to start at 10 so that we could play faster, considering the weather conditions. We finally caugyt up to a foursome at hole 16. We made the turn in 1 1/2 hours. There weren't many people playing because of the weather. The course is in great shape and plenty of challenges on every hole. We didn't take a lot of time to study our shots, because we just kept moving. The greens were plenty fast, and the wind definitely moved our putts. This is a great complex with 3 challenging courses. It is out of town, so it is cooler, and in this case colder. Great experience that you should not pass up.

Worth the trip out - Especially for a 36 hole day
I disappeared from work obligation for a day while in Vegas to visit Paiute and was glad that I did. I played a Wolf-Sun doubleheader and very much enjoyed both rounds. The wind was unbearable but that isn't the courses fault. As a result, pace of play was below average. The courses were true desert golf which is exactly what I was after. Great conditioning and everyone there wasn't just nice but exceptionally nice and helpful. I would go back.
