Coyote Springs Golf Club is located less than one hour from the Las Vegas Strip and just 45 minutes from Mesquite, Nevada. This Jack Nicklaus Signature Course is highly regarded as a must-play by Vegas golf aficionados. The course’s stunning setting is sometimes referred to as “nature’s cradle” since it’s situated in a verdant valley completely surrounded by majestic mountains and peaks. While the scenery may be beautiful, don’t let it distract you from the golf course’s many challenges. Water and bunkers await you at almost every turn.
Many tee boxes demand carries over beautifully landscaped desert areas, though the distances are reasonable in nature. Waste areas filled with crushed stone often line one or both sides of the fairways. Some green complexes are raised and all are well protected by sand bunkers. Swales, mounds and collection areas await off line approaches, and the rough surrounding the sand traps is long and challenging. The putting surfaces themselves are large and very undulating.
One of the most memorable holes is the par-5 second, whose bunkers at the second landing area will force you to think carefully about how to approach the Augusta-like green. In addition to the golf course, Coyote Springs golf offers one of the largest practice facilities in the country. This 19-acre facility includes 13 target greens and a short game area for pitching, chipping, and bunker practice.
