Paiute & Pete ... the beginning of the "Vegas Trifecta"
World Golf Hall of Fame Inductee and Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient, Pete Dye, is the design force behind the three distinctive layouts found at this unique destination just 25 minutes northwest of the world famous Las Vegas Strip. Renowned for his course architecture, as well as comedic commentary about the game and the courses he has designed, Pete Dye proved how "One-of-a-Kind can now come in Threes" in his concept to realization of Snow Mountain, Sun Mountain and WOLF. Never missing a chance to infuse his legendary challenge of the field with his signature elements such as railroad tie bunkers and sweeping slope changes, he ensured each course within this Vegas Trio presents the golfer a different experience from its siblings.
About the Las Vegas Paiute Tribe
The Las Vegas Paiute Tribe, located in both the downtown corridor and in northwest Las Vegas, became recognized as a Sovereign Nation through the Indian Reorganization Act of June 18, 1934, in conjunction with the Las Vegas Paiute Tribal Constitution, approved on July 22, 1970. The Tudinu (or Desert People), ancestors of the Las Vegas Paiute Tribe, occupied the territory encompassing part of the Colorado River, most of southeastern Nevada and parts of both Southern California and Utah. The tribe operates and owns the 54-championship-hole Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort, which was also the first master-planned, multi-course facility of its kind built on Native American land. The tribe also owns and operates the Las Vegas Paiute Smoke Shop, Snow Mountain Smoke Shop, Las Vegas Paiute Police Department, and Las Vegas Paiute Health and Human Services (lvpaiutetribe.com).
