Played on Saturday, 6/30, with a 9am-ish tee time with a couple guys from work and one of their sons. We paid $30, incredible price since other nearby courses (except Sunrise) are at least twice that.

Course was in very playable condition for the summer heat. Very wet in some areas. Tee boxes level. Fairways were a little thin, with some dead/brown/dirt areas, but mostly good coverage. Rough varied from just above fairway to 2-3 inches in some area. Greens were punched 2 weeks ago (on GK and advised by the course before booking) and are coming back pretty nice. Still running a little slow but should be great in a week or two. Bunkers have always been this course's downfall. I remember hard packed rock filled sand. Today was a little better. I was in a couple green side and a couple fairway ones, no noticeable rocks. 1 of the green side was very wet and muddy, the other was dry with heavy sand.

Pace was a 4:30 on a busy Saturday morning. Drink cart was around 3 times, but didn't start until 9:30. Didn't see a marshal (didn't need one) and a few of the water buckets were empty on the back 9. Fun design, residential courses but fairways are almost all tree lined to hide them. Wide open with some challenges. Definitely worth $30 and a trip back.
Played Friday, 6/22, 2nd round of 36 at AP. Teed off about 11:15 after a good meal in the grill. Paid $20 replay rate. Finished in just under 3:30, taking our time as a large group went out about 30 minutes earlier. Caught them on 17 but no issues before that.

Course conditions were slightly lower than Mountain. Tee boxes were in good condition. Fairways were firm, with thin areas popping up. Rough is at a minimum, just long enough to define the fairway. Bunkers were in good shape. AP has upgraded the sand on both courses, slightly heavy with a minimum amount of stones. Greens are coming out of punching 3 weeks ago. #1 was beat up, but the rest were ok, a little firm and medium speed.

Palm is a very fun course to play. A little short, we played the blues (67.6/114, 5856 yards) and found a few tees pushed back and a some tournament style hole placements I've never seen before, made a few holes play 20-30 yards longer than normal.
Played Friday, 6/22, as the opening 18 to a 36 hole day for John_T's birthday. Teed off about 6:30, joined by a local single, and played in about 3:30. Paid about $26 with a discount offer and the OB card.

Course is showing a bit of stress from the heat after looking great a few weeks ago. Fairways are still in good shape, minus the 2nd, which is thin with obvious turf replacement going in. Rough is getting longer, with a chance of losing a ball if you don't watch where it goes in. Bunkers looked the same, improving them from months ago. Greens are still fast, but some are starting to have some wear areas, causing a bumpy route.

Home course. I love playing it.
Played in the GKPlays event on Saturday, 6/16. I had a great time playing with John, Kevin, and Alan and catching up with everyone after the round.

This is my 2nd favorite course and try to get out here twice a year, but this was the 1st time back in almost a year. I absolutely love this course. Basically, wide open, every hole separated from the others, and no 2 holes alike. I know it'll change once houses are finally built, but until then, I will enjoy the solitary feeling the course provides.

Course was in good condition. Nice tee boxes. Fairways were firm but not thin. Rough was consistent and not too difficult to hit out. Bunkers were consistent, firm in the fairway, medium green side. Greens were pretty good, a couple showing some damage from the heat, and a medium speed.

Definitely a must play course. Wider than they look fairways and the most difficult green complexes I've played. If you miss the green or hit to the wrong side, you're looking at a difficult chip/pitch, a deep green side bunker shot, or a long double or more breaking lag putt. This course wears me out but so much fun to play.
Played on Friday, 6/15, with JohnnyGK. After a quick warm up, we passed a slow 2some at 3, doubled back to play 3 after the 9th, and picked up a single on 12. Finished in 3 1/2 hours.

Course was in pretty good shape. Tee boxes were mostly level, with little amount of damage. Fairways were in good shape, outside of patch work being done on 4. Rough was minimum, which is bad if you start rolling towards the ditch, since it will not hold it up. Bunkers were great. Some of the better sand in the valley, no stones, slightly heavy and easy to hit out. The greens are the crown jewel of this course. Absolutely spectacular. Ultra smooth, little or no ball marks, and a nice consistent medium/fast pace throughout the course.

Overall, it's a fun course to play. Lots of risk/reward holes, with some short par 4s on the front 9 and some longer par 5s on the back. While not a destination course, worth a trip to play, especially in the afternoon when you can fly around the course. Greens were just punched on the 20th and 21st, so wait a few weeks.
Played on Friday, 6/8, with a 6:30ish tee time, $35 with OB card. Checked in early and was told we could get out if we were ready. Right to the 1st tee as a 2, following a 2, played through a 4some on 11 and finished in about 3:30. Gorgeous Vegas day and done before the heat.

1st time on Mountain in 3 months, and it was in incredible shape. Course is ready for their annual pro/scratch tourney in a month. Tee boxes were the best I've seen, only complaint was how the stones were set, many pointing away from the hole. Fairways were lush with little amount of thin areas. Rough has been grown out, need to watch where you go in because if it's sitting down, you may not find it, and some trouble getting out. Bunkers were decent, not hard packed. Greens were in great shape, recovering from their recent punching, and running FAST.

Mountain was in that "late October Early November" type of shape. Worth the trip before the heat causes problems.
Played Sunday, 5/27, with a 6:50ish tee time with john_T and his dad. He sent me a text at 6:20 saying they were ready to send us. Luckily I'm minutes away and we teed off about 15 minutes early. Finished in just a shade over 3.5 hours. $55 NV resident rate, probably the most I would pay here, but John made the tee time late last night through their site with no other early morning options around town.

I have a weird relationship with PD. I'm just never comfortable, doesn't "fit my eye," but personal opinion aside, it's a good course. Conditions were pretty good. Tee boxes had a little sloping to them, but flat spots were findable. Fairways were nice, not thin areas, lots of green, and lush. Rough was a mix bag. It's bermuda coming back from dormancy, and it gets very thin the farther away from the fairway. Bunkers were really good. Very few pebbles, and nice white sand. Greens were phenomenal. They felt soft, but ran fast and smooth. Only issue was the many unrepaired ball marks.

PD is a nice course, variety of holes, more open than it looks/feels from the tee (which may be why I'm uncomfortable), and somewhat challenging with some long par 4s and 5s and plenty of bunkers abound. Not a destination course, but a nice resident course.
Played on Thursday, 5/24, thanks to Sixpez for setting it up and joined bigkev and Ppark81 for the round. This course is deep with history, hosting PGA and LPGA events, and a stable of the old school Vegas scene. It was awesome walking through the clubhouse and looking at the many pics from the past.

LVCC was built in 1967 and the clubhouse kept that feel. It's 2 stories, with the bar on the second overlooking the 9th hole (which makes me think they flipped the 9s at one point) and the pro shop down an escalator. Super friendly staff, which was expected of a private club. Amenities included LVCC labeled bottle water at the turn and on the course, fresh made lemonade at the snack bar on course, and free popcorn and homemade chips in the bar/grill area.

Course was in phenomenal shape. It felt like we were riding on carpet as we drove down the fairways. Rough was up a little, which could cause some problems. Bunkers were decent, not loose, not dense, but rock free and better than most in Vegas. I found the greens incredible. Multi-tiered which left you with multiple breaks if on the wrong level. Smooth, medium speed, and difficult to read. As a group, I don't think we got a handle on the dominant breaks.

Definitely not a desert course. It has a feel of a super upgraded LV National, with lots of tree lined fairways keeping the houses out of play. Great views of the Strip and plenty of aim points using hotels and attractions. I would absolutely jump through hoops to play here again.
Played on Thursday, 5/24, with a group of GK gurus at 7:30. From bag drop to lunch in the grill afterwards, it was an excellent experience. Great customer service all around. This was the 2nd time out since the renovation and 1st time I've played it outside of end of summer and dead of winter. The flipping of the 9s has grown on me and I love the variety of the layout, no 2 holes alike, great par 3s, and great Vegas views.

Best condition I've seen the course and that's saying a lot since it was great in December. Lush fairways, short rough, and smooth greens. Course and bunkers were wet from the morning watering, which was my only complaint. Greens look faster than they played but they are coming in nicely.

Definitely worth the trip when in Vegas and easily a top 5 course for me.
Played on Friday, 5/18, with a 11:32 tee time and paid $59 through the course website. A mixed bag of positives and negatives.

POSITIVES: very friendly staff, beautiful all grass range with a small bucket (about 25 balls) included, nice practice putting green and chipping area, excellent course conditions: mostly level tee boxes (par 3s a bit beat up), lush fairways, 1-2 inches of rough, bunkers had some pebbles/stones but green side sand was somewhat fluffy; fun layout

NEGATIVES: weird cart policy*, pace of play (each cart lists your tee time along with what time you should be leaving certain greens with a 4.5 hour pace) front 9 took over 2.5, waiting on every shot (par 3s had 2-3 groups waiting), we bailed at almost 5 hours with 2 left to play (with groups waiting on both tees as we drove past); had a brushback with the cart guy when he asked how it was and I said the pace sucked. His reply, "hate the player not the game," my reply and look was not PC

cart policy: carts are kept locked until your tee time; range and practice greens are really close, but I like to keep an eye on my stuff; at your tee time, the cart guy/starter unlocks your cart and sends you to the 1st tee (this may have caused the pace issues, since no one watches the tee and I saw 2 groups hanging out a few times)

Greens had signs of recent small punches, with sand on some but not all. Seemed to cause a speed issue, as some were slow and other a nice medium/fast pace

Overall, I really liked the conditions and was surprised by the layout. It's not a flat residential course, all fairways have plenty of elevation change and undulations. Awesome par 3s, all over water, but not 100% carry and plenty of bail out areas. I would like to play it again, but only if I find a better price and an early mid week tee time.
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.
