Las Vegas, Nevada
The Wolf Course at the Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort is the 3rd of three Dye golf courses operating out of a single clubhouse. The Sun Mountain and Snow Mountain courses came first and set the tone for resort style golf. At The Wolf the client wanted something ‘bigger and badder’. Pete Dye enlisted his niece Cynthia Dye, ASGCA to meet that challenge.
The Wolf Course is definitely “To Dye Fore”, and should be a definite ‘bucket list’ course for your Las Vegas golf itinerary. From the back tees the Wolf can stretch to over 7,600 yards, making it the longest golf course currently in the state of Nevada. Marrying remarkable length with raw beauty, the course is infamous for its undulations, alternate landing areas, and a stunning 15th hole island green. The facility offers two practice ranges, a 50,000-square-foot clubhouse, restaurant and bar, 5,000-square-foot banquet facility, catering for corporate events, weddings ceremonies and receptions, and an award-winning golf shop.
The desert landscape that surrounds the Wolf Course is typical of the southwest. It will take a couple of trips around this track to determine the best place to hit the ball off the tees. The Wolf Course features numerous doglegs and several carries over desert waste areas. The fairways are wide but the greens have numerous false fronts and backs that reject the ball away from the hole if you hit an errant shot.
