On March 14, competitors will tee off on both the Sun Mountain and 'Original' Snow Mountain courses at the Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort for the National Center for American Indian Enterprise Development's (NCAIED) 23rd annual Scholarship Golf Tournament. Proceeds from the tournament will help fund the American Indian Fellowship in Business Program benefiting American Indian College students studying business, according to an NCAIED press release.

This resort with its rolling green hills against a backdrop of rustic, desert mountains and cloudless, blue skies ranks No. 1 among best courses to play in Las Vegas, according to, and Chris Santella considers it bucket list-worthy, including it in his 2005 bookFifty Places to Play Golf Before You Die.

The Sun Mountain Course is known for its "indigenous intertwining landscaping, surprising slope changes, and majestic mountain backdrop." Whereas Paiute’s ‘Original’ Snow Mountain Course features "wide rye grass fairways, seven holes with water, traditional Dye railroad-tie bunkers, dog-leg finishing holes, and a progressive layout."
