Played on Friday, 3/9, with a 10:40a tee time. I had very little interaction with the staff outside of the bag drop/cart barn guys, who were great. Probably the best cleaning my clubs have received at the end of the round (always a little disappointed with other cleaning the clubs). Due to it being the 2nd round of the day, our 3rd took care of paying ($70) and John_T took care of the food and drinks prior. I will say, on a very busy day (thanks for everyone visiting for the 4 basketball tourneys this week), it was incredibly smooth. On the 1st tee a couple of minutes early, and finished a shade under 4.5, waiting on a few with the 4some behind right up on us.

If you haven't read a Paiute review ever, I will paraphrase almost everyone: (1) tee boxes mostly level with some divots on par 3s (2) Fairways like CARPET! Lush but with some run out
(3) Rough was about 1-2 inches, just enough to know you're in it (4) Fantastic bunkers! Semi fluffy and easy to hit out (5) Firm and smooth greens, almost fast Tip: Remember where the highway is from where you are, putts are faster running away from the mountain behind it (6) it's always breezy

Another fantastic day at Paiute. A great recommendation if looking for a great Vegas experience.

Played on 3/9 with the 2nd group out. Free birthday round with the OB card but would of been $42. Even with the sunrise tee time, the range was up and running under the lights. 1st group was a group of employees and we were paired with 2 other employees, who did not seem enthused of the pairing. We graciously told them if the 1st group lets them go ahead, we'll casually trail behind. Never saw the 2 again and the 4some pulled ahead too, absolute morning rabbits. We finished at 3:20 feeling we took our time and enjoyed. 3some behind us was over a hole behind.


Course was in good conditions. Tee boxes were pretty good. We played the blues and they moved them back from their normal areas to grow in the regular areas. Fairways were running firm, with great grass coverage, except for 100y out on #2, which was destroyed by the coots. Rough was cut just a few above the fairways, but thicker around the greens. Greens were in great shape, firm, very little ball marks, and fast, almost scary with the slopes. Bunkers were the worst part, hard packed, pebbles, and hard to hit out of.

Still my go to based on price and conditions with the OB card.

Played on Friday, 3/2, with a 9ish tee time on a blustery day. Joined John_T, his dad, and his cousin, paying $62 resident rate. Started right on time, behind a 4, let a 2some play through but they quit after 9, and just chased the group ahead around in 4:30. Waited on the last few holes but nothing major.

Course was in really good shape as it preps for a SNGA tournament next weekend. Tee boxes were good, but some were on sidehills and just minor divot damage. Fairways were pristine, with no thin areas and green grass all around. Rough is dormant bermuda, which gave you a good or bad lie, depending which way the grass was laying. Bunkers were phenomenal. Both fairway and green side were filled with a fine soft sand, some of the best in Vegas. Greens were in great shape. Very firm, did not see a ball mark all day, but very smooth and a fast pace. The wind caused a few balls to waver or roll away.

I can't believe I waited so long to get back to Highland Falls. Just a great course. From the white tees (6017 yards/68.1/118), a nice mix of short and long par 4s, 3 uphill Par 5s (2 into the prevailing wind) and some short fun Par 3s, including 1 of the most picturesque in the valley, #14, which has you teeing off from an elevated tee with an incredible look at the Strip. I think HF is a very underrated course, may not be a trip-worthy course, but could be a nice addition.

Played Friday, 1/26, with a 8:50 tee time booked through Last Minute Golf for $43 each. Parking lot and club house was packed due to a tourney on Lexington, but they set up a separate bag drop/staging area and everything went smooth. I usually don't buy items in the pro shop due to the mark up, but found they sold Monument Golf's stick it strap for lasers for less than online and snatched 1 up.

The all grass range was closed due to mechanical issues with the picker and the putting green was closed due to a frost delay. Also due to the frost delay, tee times were pushed back about 45 minutes, but they sent the early groups out as a shotgun and we went off on time. Never saw the group in front of us, let a 2some play through on 11, and finished in about 4:30.

Course was in good winter condition, for the most part. Tee boxes on the 4s and 5s were good, but the Par 3s were a little beat up and not level. Fairways were great. Firm, with lots of roll, and almost complete coverage (except for an area of #8). Rough was dormant bermuda, which caused some troubling shots around the greens, but allowed shots in the mounds to roll into the fairway. Bunkers were the low point. Thin, rocky, and some were missing rakes. Greens were firm, smooth, and rolled slower than they looked.

Definitely worth it for the price. Wish it wasn't completely across the valley for me. I love Concord over the Lexington course (as the kids say, don't "at" me). Great mix of short and long holes, big elevation change Par 3s, a couple of tough, almost straight uphill holes (9, 17), and one of the best closing holes in the Vegas area.

Played on Friday, 1/12, with a 10:30 tee time. $65 as a guest of a PACC card holder, which is excellent for Paiute, but the max for me for weekend golf.

We used the bag drop and the bags were set up on the cart after the easy check in. Snack shop at the carts and the one after the 9th was open. For the 1st time ever, the drink cart pulled up to us around the 4th and was OUT OF BEER. Didn't see it the rest of the front but twice on the back. Skipped the bar this time, but definitely worth a stop, great prices and fantastic view.

Parking lot was packed and they were only using 1 of the 2 ranges (Wolf today), which made it seem busy. On the course, never saw anyone in front and we had a 2some stalking us, but every time we would wait for them, they would slow play and not come up. We finished in a shade under 4 hours as a 4some.

Course was in terrific shape. Vegas had rain for 2 days mid-week, and the course took it well. Flat tee boxes, some divots on the Par 3s. Fairways were 100% green and lush. Rough was just 1-2 inches. Bunkers were nice on top, fluffy and loose for the first few inches, still damp below. Greens were firm, minimum amount of ball marks, and rolled smooth at an almost fast pace.

Snuck out for 2 twilight rounds on 12/14 (Thursday) and 12/15 (Friday), paying $27 both days. I was a little worried about chasing daylight with tee times just after Noon on both days, but finished in 4 hours on Thursday, and about 4:20 on a stacked Friday, joining the group ahead us on the 18th tee so we could putt out in the dark.

Conditions are officially winter-like. Tees are a little beat up. Fairways are thinning with brown areas popping up. Rough is manageable, but long and thick in some areas. Bunkers are hard-packed and heavy. Greens are fast, but a bit bumpy in the afternoon and plenty of unfixed ball marks.

I've seen AP better, but it's still very playable. I could not beat the price for twilight.

Played on Wednesday, 12/13, with JohnnyGK and Mrkich (Matt). You could not beat the company and the great Vegas weather. Tee'd off at 9ish and temps in the 60s, no clouds, no wind.

Course re-opened in October after some renovation/restoration work. The first noticeable change (and it's a huge change) was the new driving range. Gone is the long stripe of mat and replaced with a large all grass area so big they could move the hitting area around for weeks before repeating them. They also added a putting green between the range and the #1 tee (old #10).

The major maintenance work went to the greens and bunkers. I decided to try out many of the bunkers (not by choice) and found them to be the best in Vegas. Soft, subtle sand that made it easy to splash out. I've never been confident hitting from sand but after a few bunkers, I was happy I landed in them instead of the rough. They also added/removed a few bunkers, most noticeably on the new #3 (old 12). They took out the back bunkers, added a front left one, and built a backstop behind the green. Most of the other bunkers have been reshaped. All 18 greens have been re-grassed, and 5 were recontoured.

The last change was the flipping of the 9s. Last year, we played the new routing as we teed of #10 and I was not a fan. However, it grew on me as we played through the round on Wednesday. While I loved the old #18, finishing into a great Strip view, you now finish with 3 great holes, the Million Dollar Par 3 over water, a tough risk/reward Par 5, and 18 now takes you into the clubhouse.

Conditions were fantastic and they appeared to have taken advantage of the mild weather. Fairways were mostly spotless, with a few thin/brown areas. Rough is dormant bermuda, so you get a definitive outline between fairway and rough. The new bunkers were incredible. The new greens were firm, but slower than they appear, probably due to how new they are. Overall, a great experience, start to finish.

A must play for a Vegas trip.

Played on Black Friday, 11/24, with a 9ish tee time, paid $35 thanks to a 25% off offer John_T had. Busy pro shop and range (and 80* Vegas weather) made me think I was in for a long round, but made it around in just under 4 1/2 hours.

1st time on Palm since the re-seeding in September. Course is doing well. Tee boxes need some work, quite a few uneven stances, particularly on the Par 3s. Fairways are in great shape, total coverage with no thin or brown areas. Rough was short, about 1-2 inches, just enough to slow the ball down and define the fairways. Bunkers were not great. Pebbles/stones in the 2 I was in, both were pretty thin, typical Vegas bunkers. Greens were outstanding. A little on the firm side, but fast and smooth.

Both courses have done well out of the reseeding, and the greens have been in the best shape that I can remember.

Back out at Aliante on Friday, 11-17, with a 8:30 tee time and paid $45 resident rate. The wind must of scared everyone away as the course was empty. Starter said to go when we were ready, so John_T and my neighbor headed off after some stretching. Picked up a single on the 1st and coasted around in just under 4 hours. There was a single stalking most of the front 9, he was playing 2 balls and never wanted to pull up to play through.

Conditions were the same as a few weeks ago. Tee boxes need a little work, and the tee marker placement was a bit off (pointing almost towards houses on a couple). Fairways were in great shape, green and carpet like. Rough is dormant and the bunkers need new sand. Greens were awesome. Firm, smooth, a nice medium-fast.

Aliante has an excellent all grass driving range with plenty of room to move around the tee area. Also a large putting green with a multiple tiers and plenty of breaks. Small short game area with a bunker. I always see people practicing around the area whenever I play.

$45 is a steal right now. Definitely worth the price to get in a round.

Played today with John_T with a 10ish tee time. Thanks to abbacat for offering her free 2some certificate, and thanks to Troon and Johnny for offering it at an event.

Such an incredible change in conditions from summer to after reseeding in fall. Tee boxes were in pretty good shape, some divots on the tees. Fairways were spectacular. The new grass has grown in nicely, I could not find any thin dirt areas at all. Rough is bermuda that is starting to go dormant, so some laid down areas, some tufts of standing grass. Bunkers were the worst, which has always been a weakness here. I was in one with some heavy sand, but another which was thin and hard packed. On to the greens. This summer (and last summer too), Aliante lost about half of their greens. They were basically hard packed sand greens with no grass. HOWEVER, the grass has returned and the greens were in phenomenal shape. Almost all smooth, medium speed, with no signs of their horrible summer condition. I was told they will cut them a bit shorter next week to speed them up.

Customer service was outstanding. Easy check in wit the certificate and they threw in a small basket of warm up balls. Starter told us to check with him after warming up and he would get us out early. Drink cart around a few times each 9 and grill was open with great prices. Felt like we had the course to ourselves (except for a maintenance guy or two and the drink cart) as we putted around in under 4 hours.

Aliante holds a special spot in my heart since it's where I played when I started this game. It is a residential course but houses are out of play as long as you're not too wide right/left. At $45 for residents ($70 for visitors), Aliante is a steal right now.

Back out on AP's Mountain course on Friday, 10/20, with an 8am tee time. Course has been out of re-seeding for about month and off Cart Path Only. Paid $45 with the OB Sports Card.

The new grass has come in great, except for a few spots scattered across the 18 holes. Nothing major, some some thin or muddy areas, no bigger than 10x10 on a few holes. Rough was about 1-2 inches, just enough to give you a bit of a fit to hit out. It appears they did some bunker work too, as the sand was a nice consistency, better than the pebble hard packed from a few months ago. Greens were in great shape, medium fast, but some unrepaired ball marks.

Customer service was awesome. They had a large tournament set to go off on Palm at 8 and all the staff was hustling to make sure everyone was taken care of. Outside staff was great setting us up and getting us out. Pro shop was quick with the checkins and the bar/grill area was busy but no problems getting some pre-round refreshments. They had another group set-up to go out as we were finishing. Extremely busy day with no problems for the non-tourney players.

Starter got us out a bit early as a 2 but we joined up with the 2 behind us on 4 since we were all waiting. Finished right at 4 hours with the group ahead pulling away from us on the back.

Another great day of golf in Vegas.

Played on Friday, 10/6, at 7:45a with John_T, a buddy from work and his brother. I booked it through their website and was shown $40, but paid $36 at check in. The course feels and looks very "old school," and fits in with the quaint feel of Boulder City. It has a full size grass driving range and decent size putting green.

Course had just completed some "spot re-seeding" a few weeks earlier. Tee boxes appeared to be Bermuda starting to go dormant, short and dry, but flat and relatively divot free. Fairways were in good shape, with some bare areas at the start of the fairway, but the normal landing areas were well covered. Rough varied in length and could swallow up a ball in some places. Bunkers were in great shape with almost fluffy brown sand. Greens were awesome. Soft with a medium to fast pace. They can't have them too fast since they're is some severe slopes on some greens.

I loved the course. The first 5 holes are back and forth and tree lined. They feel narrow off the tee but are wider than they appear. Starting at 6, you skirt through residential areas that are mostly out of play with plenty of big trees to protect them. There's a handful of water hazards. Course is straight forward and flat. You can get in trouble if you're not straight off the tee. The challenge is around and on the greens. Most greens slope severely back to front, at least one with a 6 foot drop. They are also protected with bunkers that have a high face towards the green.

No drink cart, but you pass the main snack bar at 5 and pretty close to at 10th tee. There is also a snack shack at 13th and 15th tees. My only complaint is carts do not come equipped with a cooler, but they give you one if you purchase $10 in beverages.

I will go back. While it's not a destination course if you're visiting, it's a nice change from desert courses if you're local.
