Where2Golf says: 

Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort (Wolf course): Seemingly a world away from the bright lights of Las Vegas, but only 20 miles out of the city, the Paiute Golf Resort is home to three fabulous desert-style courses. Each of the layouts is a gem in its own right, characterised by an immaculately maintained, classically testing Pete Dye design. While the Sun Mountain course has a lot in common with its twin (the Snow Mountain), the Wolf is the newest and arguably most challenging. In keeping with many of the world's great links golf courses (inland or coastal), the Wolf occupies rolling, open terrain, ruggedly beautiful and distinctly penal if you stray too far from the fairways and first-cut of rough. This is definitely a wolf dressed-up in wolf's clothing, with fairways a fraction tighter than on its two companion courses, bunkering that's deeper, and greens that are larger and faster. Around the slightly domed putting surfaces, there are plenty of slick, run-off areas, from where your chipping skills will be thoroughly tested. If the wind is blowing through the valley, the extra length of the Wolf may also have you huffing and puffing a bit. However, the perfect antidote to any "blow-up" holes is never far away, contained in the fabulous views you will enjoy across open desert to the mountain ranges that line this wonderfully scenic desert valley. To the west, in the Spring Mountains, Mount Charleston impressively rises up to almost 12,000 feet above sea-level. In spite of all the Wolf's linksy openness, it may well be the island green par-3 15th that hits the jackpot for you - a great example of a classic golf hole.

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.
