Las Vegas, Nevada (August 30, 2015)–It’s always a bummer in the Las Vegas Golf Region when the annual time for over seeding hits the area (generally early September – early October) because a lot of courses have to close during some of the best weather of the year. The good news is that these Vegas courses come out of over seed looking great, but it’s still too bad for the courses and golfers to be closed for any amount of time. However, at the Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort, the home of three Pete Dye signature Las Vegas golf courses, there are always at least two of the three courses open throughout this time period, and sometimes all three. –By Brian Hurlburt
Due to the location of the resort (a bit high elevation than most Vegas courses), in some years none of the courses have to go into an over seed period but this year the Sun Mountain course will close from September 8-25 but both The Wolf and Snow Mountain will remain open during that time period. The Wolf was closed for a few days of maintenance and green aerifications recently, but will be in full action starting September 1 while Snow Mountain will be closed for a few days September 1-4, but after the 25th all three courses will be shining brightly as they always do as the prime time weather of late September, October and November can be enjoyed.
Also, as a note, the resort offers a 20% tee times discount for the courses for seven days following the closure during the aerification process. Click now to reserve your Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort tee times through the official course website. You can take advantage of the special Golf-A-Palooza Replay rate where you get a free replay, lunch and 50% off rental clubs so you can play two of the three courses in one day. There are also special bounce-back rates available.
The Paiute Golf Resort is continually a favorite of visiting and local golfers. The course receives awards and recognition continually, and are always in good shape. Here is a recent five-star review from the popular GolfAdvisor.com website about the Snow Mountain course, which currently has a ranking of 4.6 out of five on the site:
“Wow. What a resort! Driving into the middle of the desert you don’t expect to anything other than rocks and wasteland! The sea of sprinklers gave it away but if you hadn’t seen them you wouldn’t have even realized there were 3 golf courses right there.
Snow mountain as a layout is fantastic and at 7146 is more than playable. A mix of tough par 4’s with risk reward carries over water, and a few reachable par 4’s, strong par 3’s again over water and scramble par 5’s. The 11th is a notable hole at 611 yards but yet plays easier than the others at 530-550?
Greens rolled good and had a fair few subtle breaks which until you see the ball rolling would have you thinking otherwise.
Fairways were in excellent shape and the bunkers consistent and fair.
My playing partners and I couldn’t find fault with the course and the stunning 360 views just add to the playing experience. Personally I would say this course is easier than the Wolf course as its a bit wider and a touch shorter. However if I played here everyday of the week I wouldn’t be upset at all!”
