#GKPlays Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort (Snow Mountain) Las Vegas Nevada Round-up

Greenskeeper.Org comes to Las Vegas Nevada

Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort Las Vegas, Nevada#GKPlays came to Paiute Golf Resort last Sunday November 13 2016.  It was a tee time start.  If you weren’t there, you missed a fantastic time of golf, camaraderie, and prizes.

It’s another GK Plays for the record books.  This time GK Plays find ourselves at the lovely Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort.  The weather really cooperated albeit a little chilly.  The greens were fantastic, the course conditions were perfect.  It just goes to show you that a good golf course staff that knows how to care for it’s course can really do wonders.

I wanted to also give special thanks to our sponsors and host of this event.  Thanks to LINKSOUL for providing the great raffle prizes.  Thanks to LINKSOUL for providing some of the best LINKSOUL swag and gear.  And finally thanks to Paiute Golf Resort, your course conditions were definitely a cut above and  your staff was friendly and attentive.  On behalf of Greenskeeper and our members playing, much thanks.

Good morning my GK’ers golfers. Continuing with my Vegas Golf Trip with GK members. After playing the Primm Valley Desert and TPC Golf Course. I thought that I had seen it all. But on Sunday morning after arriving to Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort and see the Golf Course they have out in the desert, I was speechless, the views and the beauty of each Golf Course was fantastic.

I was in the first group. After arriving to the first hole and seeing everything that was around me, I was just memorized with the wonderful golf course they have.

The tees were in excellent shape, fairways greener that Primm Valley and TPC. There were no houses or trees in the way. I was playing in the middle of the dessert on very green fairways. The rough was tall but easy to hit from. The sand traps just perfect. They had enough sand and easy to get out from. The greens were faster then the TPC greens, hard to read and very interesting breaks. I had a great time and we didn’t wait in any hole. Just perfect!!! The Paiute customer services was amazing, very happy to have us there and very friendly. I graded this Golf Course 9.5.

By far this was my favorite Golf Course and I’m looking forward to playing it again. Thank you GK for the invite and putting this event together.

My GK golfers if you have not played this Golf Course you have to add it to your bucket list and get up there and have a great round of golf. Hit the ball and let it roll!!!

Our second round of our GK Plays Las Vegas could not a have dialed up a more picture perfect day. At first there was a cool wind but by the time we teed off the wind had subsided and temps rose quickly. With a crystal-clear sunny day, Las Vegas Paiute got to show off its spectacular visual experience. Add to that immaculate playing conditions, just blew me away.

Greens rolled true, moderately fast and firm. Fairways perfect. Rough perfect about 1 to 3 inches high. Bunkers perfect. Tee Boxes perfect. With the deep green turf and contrasting desert landscape with no homes to obstruct distant beautiful views…can you tell I dig this place. Add to that a grand clubhouse with delicious food in the restaurant, enormous proshop, and views of the course…I swear this is not a commercial for Paiute.

As far as the outing, from the moment I arrived their staff was there to accommodate. Everything went smoothly. They even surprised me by giving us a Las Vegas Paiute poker chip ball marker to each player. I had a nice buffet breakfast to start my day overlooking the 18th hole of the Snow Mountain Course then off to the golf cart staging area and excellent practice facilities to greet more GK’ers. After our round the clubhouse served us well with food, drink and plenty of space to give out prizes.

Next year I’m going to try to arrange the Wolf Course for GK Plays Las Vegas 2017. We got to keep coming back here.

Another beautiful day to play golf. The scenery was amazing and at times hard to remember you were there to play golf not take pictures! The people at the course were friendly and very helpful. The greens ran true and fairways lush! We had lunch after our round in the club house and it was excellent. Highly recommend the course.

I played in the GK Plays on Sunday, 11/13 with Ailan66, rudyclub and Joe. Great time! Conditions are nearly immaculate. I can’t think of any aspect of the course that needs work, except maybe a couple greens were slightly bumpy. It is incredibly lush everywhere. Greens are running medium fast and held full shots well. Two different greens were a little bumpy, but otherwise they ran smooth and pure. Fairways were basically perfect. Same for the rough: very lush with complete coverage. The bunkers I was in were great. Tee boxes excellent. All in all, 9+ conditions across the board.

This was my first time playing Snow Mountain and I enjoyed it slightly more than Wolf. The layout was a little more distinctive/memorable, although still not overly so. I did love the 18th hole, however. The stellar conditions and the isolated setting are the real highlights here.

Thank you Johnny and all the sponsors! I really like my new Linksoul hat! Copy and paste this url to access my Flickr photo album of 40 images: https://goo.gl/JhbUeQ

On Sunday, Nov. 13th, the Greenskeeper group got a chance to play at the Paiute Golf Resort-Snow Mountain! First, we were lucky and blessed with one of the best days you could ask for weather-wise when golfing in Northern Las Vegas area – very little wind that dwindled to negligible by the 4th hole; not a cloud in the sky; and somewhere in the high 70’s – low 80’s.

I will be the first to say that when I heard these courses (there are actually 3 at this resort, Snow Mountain, Sun Mountain and Wolf) were designed by Pete Dye, I was ready to run away and spend the rest of the day in a casino. Me and ‘Pete’ do not get along, LOL. He’s sadistic on most days! You always know when you’ve played one of his courses – you’re usually pretty beat up and several balls lighter in your bag ??.

Now for the reality of the day – I really enjoyed Snow Mountain! It was a challenging course yet not punishing. The course overall was in really good shape. As with most courses, staying out of the desert terrain and on the fairways are key. There were the typical Dye twists of odd shaped and undulating fairways mixed with water and desert, but if you were smart, you could avoid most problems. There were even a couple nice risk/reward holes, if you dared. The only downside was the bunkers needed some work (or new sand) and a couple of greens seemed to break opposite of what you’d expect. Otherwise, I now look forward to returning to see what the other two courses have in store, as this Pete Dye course was actually fun!
