Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort - Wolf Course
Wolf has bite
A fair test of golf. Just make sure your swing is in order. Most holes have wide fairways for tee shots. The challenge comes from the approach shots. Course design and condition is excellent. Played as a twosome and finished in 3 and a half hours.

Would have given a 5 star rating in every category except some sanding maintenance had been done on the greens and they weren't as fast as they could have been.

Desert golf at its finest!
Awesome course. In the middle of the desert surrounded by incredible views of the mountains. It was hot, but nice breeze was welcoming. Greens were overdressed with sand mixture, but wasn't that much of an issue.

Absolutely stunning views
10-12 handicap player. I played from the whites (6000 yds) as was playing with my buddy who is probably 25 handicap. Beautiful views, lush green fairways and greens. Hole layout was surprisingly hilly for being in a flat expanse of the desert. Most drive landing areas were wide and forgiving, but for wild hitters, losing balls in the desert could happen on every hole. Greens were challenging due to the fact that they were well- guarded by bunkers, and many were elevated greens making run-up shots impossible. We really enjoyed the course, the views, the clubhouse - top notch facility and crew. Location looks far from the strip in Vegas, but it was a super easy drive, and nice to get away from the strip as well. Will definitely play again.

A fine Dye with a few really interesting holes.
As a Pete Dye afficianado, I heartily recommend the Wolf at Paiute north of Las Vegas. The greens were excellent and ran about 11. The 8th hole is classic dye and with a back right pin placement and bunker that catches anything right and is 20ft below the green, it's true test of mental strength for an expert to go for the flag. It's not that long, but most players couldn't go for the flag with a wedge, let alone a hybrid! The island green 15th also tests character, and good players must play 16 from the tips to get the full effect and pleasure from correctly negotiating the S-shaped waste area. Also, 18 should be played from the tips. it's not as long as the 500 yds as it's downhill, but only hitting from the tips brings the water/bunker bottleneck into play. There are multiple tees and most have their own brass plate F/M/B distances.

True Desert Experience
No neighborhoods, houses or airports. Truly a golf oasis in the desert. Fairways are wide and undulating. First cut of rough is thick Bermuda making flyer lies a problem. Of course the second cut is rocks, cactus and sand, so hitting fairways is a must. Greens are fast and don't break near as much as they look. Island green par three 15th is one of the prettiest holes you'll see anywhere.
The staff was extremely friendly calling me by name since arriving. Overall a great tough course that's fair enough for anyone to play. My next trip to Vegas will definitely include Piaute.
