No Flooding In 2014 on Pete Dye Courses at Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort

Las Vegas, Nevada (August 12, 2014)--In 2013, severe flooding forced the shut down of all three golf courses at the Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort. However, in 2014 the recent heavy rains and flooding in the northwest area near the courses, each designed by the legendary Pete Dye, have not impacted any of the courses and the Paiute has remained open despite some in the public believing differently. "We have received a lot of calls and emails asking about how the courses are doing because there has been some news video airing showing flooding on the highway near us, but we just want everybody to know that the flooding was not on our courses and we have no damage," said General Manager Chad Gunier. "We are open and operating business as usual and welcoming golfers from all over the world plus taking care of our Las Vegas members." --By Brian Hurlburt.
