The Wolf is the signature course at Paiute and deservedly so. Keep it in the green, as the desert will comsume any ball that gets astray. And yes, I'm a Ram living in the Cowboy State, which creates its share of bar fights! Go Rams!!
Played Wolf Creek last spring. Definite bucket list course. Coyote Springs the next day was a letdown, especially considering the drive to get there, double-wide clubhouse with chewy sandwiches and ambivalent staff. Oasis and Conestoga in Mesquite were both nice, acceptable courses. Not awesome, but good values for the dollar. We played all 54 at Paiute in November. Loved them and would do it again in a heartbeat. Good value and memorable. Very well-maintained. A little...
From my personal experience, I would advise buying a nice used set of game improvent irons. Pretty cost effective... Use them until your swing has some consistency. Set a goal. "I will get new irons when I break 90." Or something similar... You will learn, set a goal and feed your competitive spirit. You will also save enough to pay for three or four lessons! My $0.02. If it works you can buy me a beer someday. If not, I will buy you one. Can ya beat that deal?
Just came back from three days in Vegas. All three Paiute courses were great. Bear's Best was also really fun. I'd play all the above again in a heartbeat, but for the $ prefer the Paiute courses. Played Wolf Creek last spring and it is everything you read about. Everyone's Bucket List should include Wolf Creek.
Very, very helpful! Thanks:-)
I need more info how this looks... Maybe I'm just having a brain block??
Weird phobia: I have to find a broken tee for irons and hybrids off the tee box! Anything else throws the earth off its axis!
305 yard par four, cart path starts about 225...  Men's league night.  Foursome ahead putting, but I'm WAY safe.  Right?!?!  I hit 3W, as I'm no big stick and just trying to get to the right yardage for approach.  My slicing ball hits the VERY corner of the cart path on the fly, comes back across the fairway at an almost 45* angle and splits the guys at the flag shoulder high on the very long next bounce and clears the green by 10 yards.      I apologized with all...

Back to what I think was the OP's topic...   Beech Nut leaf tobacco.  I just find it relaxing.  Oddly, two of my playing partners chaw the stuff too?!?!  No spitting, etc...  I'd be a huge hypocrite to spit because of how bad I go off on sunflower seeds and cigarette butts laying around tee boxes and greens.    For some reason it helps me chill out.  And has for 25 years and going...
