While this Dye Designs course may look tight, the fairways are lush. The forward tees will ease some of the pressure and the tree-lined fairways lend a soothing feel to the surroundings. You'll also find the Pete Dye-trademark railroad ties that frame the traps.
3415 E Bonanza Road
Las Vegas, Nevada 89101
All three 18-hole Pete Dye designs offer something for every golfer, but the Sun Mountain course is viewed as the most tame. The forward tees offer a comfortable distance while still allowing you to enjoy the sights and sounds of the resort: wide open spaces and silence occasionally interrupted by the sounds of wildlife. The wide fairways and greens that roll true will give you the confidence boost you need.

Las Vegas, Nevada 89124
(800) 711-2833, (702) 658-1400
This Ted Robinson design allows players to pick a plan of attack to suit their game, no matter the tees you choose. You'll also find some beautiful scenics, including the beautiful hole number three. Though tough, try to avoid the bunkers and water.
20 Rhodes Ranch Parkway
Las Vegas, Nevada 89113
This is the perfect spot for both the first-timer or the experienced player. Sienna provides a challenge through doglegs and hazards without intimidating the less experienced golfer. Overall, it is a straightforward course that is fun to play.
