Where2Golf says: 

Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort (Sun Mtn course): Located just 20 miles outside the city, but well beyond the limits of any urban development, the Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort is home to three fabulous desert-style courses and a spectacular, hacienda style clubhouse. Each of the three course is a gem in its own right, characterised by an immaculately maintained, classically testing Pete Dye design. The Sun Mountain course (Tav-Ai Kaiv) has a lot in common with its twin, the Snow Mountain course (Nu-Wav Kaiv). The gently undulating and wonderfully natural desert terrain, provides an always interesting and challenging layout, as well as stunning desert and mountain views. There is generally enough room from the tee to hit the good-width fairways, or stray into the not overly penal first-cut of rough. However, the wind has been known to blow out here, and with it the fairways seem to narrow, the large and open bunkers expand, and the ball-swallowing desert brush that borders the holes comes more into the reckoning. The layout contains many elegantly dog-legging holes, and some real stunners. Among the most memorable, the par-5 11th is played from a slightly elevated tee, with a view out across the wide open desert to a rugged mountain backdrop in the distance. Like its two companions, the Sun Mountain is a fabulous golf course, ensuring your biggest challenge at Paiute is deciding which of the three to play.

Did you know?

Paiute (sometimes written Piute) refers to two related groups of Native Americans - the Northern Paiute of California, Nevada and Oregon, and the Southern Paiute of Arizona, southeastern California, Nevada and Utah. However, the meaning of the word Paiute is not completely clear. Anthropologists have either interpreted it as pah-ute (meaning Water-Ute) or pai-ute (meaning True-Ute). The Paiute people, as well as other Native Americans such as Bannocks, Comanches, Chemehuevi, Goshutes, and Shoshones, spoke with dialects of the native Ute language, which belongs to the Shoshonean division of the Uto-Aztecan family of languages. >> Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort is a member of the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary System, committed to the maintenance and development of the natural environment around the golf courses.
