Overall, the Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort has 54 holes, all designed by renowned architect Pete Dye. Each of the courses offers golfers a challenge, however the longest course in Nevada, dubbed The Wolf, is one of the main draws of the property. Golfers from all over the world visit Nevada to try to beat The Wolf. While there are other golfing alternatives in Vegas, the scenery, convenient location, and public access are the main draws to visiting the resort. With panoramic views from every angle, the trio of courses are great for golfers of all skill levels.

Snow Mountain

Snow Mountain is 7164 yards from the tips and known for having the best par 3s on the property. It’s the original course at the resort, and yet still manages to retain its status as a guest favorite. Onsite, golfers will find seven holes with water, a progressive layout, and wide ryegrass fairways.

The Wolf

The longest course in Nevada, the Wolf is 7,604 total yards. It’s known as the property’s signature course despite being the newest and arguably the most challenging onsite. With five tee options, golfers gladly take on the challenge. While you’re there, make sure to check out the 15th hole island green, different landing areas, and picture-perfect scenery.

The Clubhouse

Before or after tee time, it’s worth making a visit to the Clubhouse, which offers a restaurant, bar, and more than 50,000 square feet of space. The restaurant dishes change each season but include delicious salads, burgers, wraps, and sandwiches. The Clubhouse is also home to the largest golf store in the entire state.
