Las Vegas, Nevada (June 30, 2013)–With temperatures nearing 115 degrees or higher at the moment, every degree of cooler temps can help. And the management of the Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort, the home of three Pete Dye Las Vegas golf courses, wants all golfers in Las Vegas to remember that it is a bit cooler at Paiute. The three Dye courses are located about 30 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip at a higher altitude meaning that temperatures are about eight degrees cooler at the award-winning resort. –By Brian Hurlburt, Follow @LVGolfInsider

Annually the Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort earns accolades from varying publications and websites. Most recently, TripAdvisor.com awarded the resort a certificate of excellence. Here is an excerpt from a recent review from a golfer who played in May of 2013: "My friend and I played the Sun and Snow courses last week and had a great time. The courses were in excellent shape, the staff was wonderful and the greens fees very reasonable. We stayed on the Strip but rented a car for the easy drive to and from the course."
