Las Vegas, Nev. (July 25, 2016)–Take your pick of phrases: Whether it’s Dye-abolical or Dye-namic, it’s easy to get caught up in praise for the man behind the three amazing Las Vegas golf courses at the Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort–world-renowned golf course architect Pete Dye. — By Bill Bowman.
No matter the superlatives players may heap upon the resort, there’s no doubt about one fact: the 54 holes of championship golf at the resort are impressive and memorable.
Oh, and don’t forget they are playable…for everyone.
The golf courses– the Snow, Sun and Wolf courses–will challenge players as well as offering stunning views. And then there’s the fact the resort, located in northwest Las Vegas, is one of the most peaceful spots around. There are no homes, no traffic. It’s you and the golf courses…as well as the area’s wildlife.
The Wolf Course gets many of the accolades. With a length of 7,604 yards from the tips, it’s one of the longest challenges players will find anywhere. But it’s the 15th hole that is the centerpiece. Playing 182 yards from the tips, players will take aim at an island green. There’s no bailout (unless you count the two bunkers, one in front and one behind). Gauge the breeze, grab a club and put your best swing on the shot.
The Snow Mountain and Sun Mountain courses are both around 7,100 yards in length with risk/reward par 5s, par 3s that will test players’ nerves, along with water features and Dye’s trademark railroad tie bordered bunkers to add to the beauty and challenge.
Before or after the round, the 50,000-square-foot clubhouse is a great place to grab a bite to eat or quench your thirst with a cold beer. Whether it’s an intimate dinner for two or a group outing with you and a couple of hundred of your closet friends, the staff will accommodate with a smile.
“It’s an honor to have the Pete Dye name behind our three courses at the Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort,” said Jeff Reid, new Paiute general manager. “Dye is a renowned golf architect and is the mastermind behind some of the best courses around the world,” Reed said. “However, what comes with the Dye name is the continued expectations for our courses to live up to the name.”
And once players play one…two…or all three courses at the Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort, they will see that this is indeed golf layouts that players have been Dye-ing to play.
