Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort - Wolf Course
Caught an extremly windy day and below average temperature which took some of the fun out of playing a beautiful venue.

Terrible Course Management
This was our first time golfing in Las Vegas. The course setting and weather were beautiful, but everything else that day was terrible! We arrived early for a 12:45 tee time and found the driving range packed so decided to have a bite to eat in the restaurant. Due to very slow service (& mediocre food) we had to rush to the 1st tee only to find we were the 3rd foursome in line waiting to tee-off. We eventually hit our tee shots 20 minutes late after being assured by the starter that they were right on schedule. We had to wait at each hole as the foursome in front of us had no appreciation for golf etiquette or pace-of-play. We complained two times on the front nine to the course marshall who promised to take action, but he never approached the group in front of us. It was so bad that on the 11th hole there were 3 foursomes behind us waiting to hit as we waited for the group in front of us to clear the green. We again complained to the marshall on hole 13 only to be told that there was a group of four foursomes over six holes ahead that were holding up all golfers behind them. Since the sun was beginning to set and it had already taken over 4 & 1/2 hours to complete 13 holes, we quit and went back to the clubhouse. When we complained we were told that their third 9 hole course was wide open yet they let all golfers on our 9 holes suffer! Oh, I failed to mention that the greens had been sanded and management refused to discount our rounds!

We love to play at Paiute when we are in Vegas. The staff is wonderful! And the golf is great, too!
Forward tees are much appreciated!

Awesome day of golf
I played both the Wolf course and Snow Mountain course and both were in excellent condition. My concern of making it through 18 holes were unwarrented. Pace of play was excellent finishing both rounds with a bite of lunch at the turn in about 8hrs 20 minutes. Beautiful views and friendly staff . I would definitely play here again the next time we are in Vegas.

We played this course for my son's birthday. While it was challenging the views, and course layout were outstanding. The staff is very helpful and friendly. I highly recommend this course...be careful on the island green!

Tough test for your short game!
All the Las Vegas Paiute golf courses are superb- the conditioning, perfect bunkers, the secluded setting... it's all good. Unfortunately I picked a day with winds from 13 - 23 mph and gusts to 30 to play, so the course went from challenging to guess and pray for a wannabe 9 handicapper like myself.
My score and weather aside, I'd say this is a very challenging course- the fairways are wide enough, but some of the greens are not easily viewable and a decently struck shot can oftentimes still not find the surface. Then you find out what gives the Wolf its teeth; surrounding many of the plateau-type greens are severely contoured collection areas which can force you to chip from awkward lies to uphill greens and of course, if you missed a tucked flag you'll be short-sided as well. That's not to say it's not fair, but it will be quite demanding for the average golfer.
I think the Snow Mountain course is the prettiest course, but I'll go back again and face down the Wolf. Do them both if you can- it's a great double play!
Favorite hole- #8, 168 yd par-3. Wow! IMO an even better hole than the island-green 15th.
Nastiest hole- #14, 438 yd par-4. An absolute killer.

Wolf Eats your Lunch
The weather was horrible, rain, cold, 25 MPH winds. If I wasn't in a tournament I would not have played so take that into account for this review. I've played in some back weather but nothing that made me shiver while standing in the fairway even with rain gear and warm clothes. Of course having to wait 20 to 30 minutes on every hole didn't help. Six and a half hours standing in the rain and wind.
The course was well maintained. It's not a walk in the park but it's not that tough.
Would have loved to play it in good weather.

Played with three players one from Chicago and two from Canada. We were the first one's off so we made great time 4 hrs. Played from the Black tees no championship available. Would of liked to played the Championship tees, so I will be going back. Greens were nice but hard to read. Less break usually worked. High ball worked better than low shots, unless you played it like Ireland and hit one less club. The best part of it for me was the beauty of the desert no Condo's, houses, or anything just beautiful desert with cacti everywhere.
