March 7, 2009–Pete Dye twirled his golf course design magic three times at the Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort. The only three Pete Dye Las Vegas golf courses are the Sun Mountain, Snow Mountain, and Wolf golf courses at Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort. And through May 31 Las Vegas golfers can play and experience GolfaPalooza in Las Vegas. This special Las Vegas golf deal includes unlimited golf, free lunch, and 50% off rental golf clubs for a rate that starts at $169.
Snow Mountain is the original Las Vegas golf course at the Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort and measures 7,164 yards and is a par 72. Many believe this course is the best of the three Las Vegas golf courses at Pauite. The par 3, 16th hole plays over water to a green that is backdropped by mountains.
Sun Mountain was the second Las Vegas golf course built at the Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort. "Many golfers hail the Sun as their favorite because they feel like they are on the edge of nature due to the location of the course being completely away from the resort's interior," reads the description at lvpaiutegolf.com. "The 12th is brilliant even on a cloudy day because of the monstrous mountain backdrop, indigenous desert landscape, and sweeping slope changes, which will advise a player to think before swinging."
The Wolf was the last of the Dye courses at Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort to be built and is considered the biggest challenge and the jewel of the resort. The Wold plays a whopping 7,604 yards from the back tees and is listed as the longest course in Nevada. Annika Sorenstam and Karrie Webb officially opened the course by competing in Shell’s Wonderful World of Golf and shot scores of 65 and 64 respectively.
Looking ahead, the 3rd Annual Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort Amateur Golf Classic will take place over Labor Day weekend (Sept 5-6) on Snow Mountain. The two-day golf tournament is just $150 per player ($125 for Paiute members), and includes green fees, food both days, and a tournament awards reception following the final round.
