Rated 5 out of 5 by u000005297629 A Desert Must
Designed as a Planned Residential Community, to date, there are no homes constructed around the course. Located in the middle of a desert basin approximately 1 hour from Las Vegas and 40 Minutes from Mesquite. If you are in the area, play it as soon as you can, and before any homes block the incredible desert mountain views.
The course is beautiful, and in great condition. Stay hydrated as you are literally playing in the middle of the desert.

Rated 5 out of 5 by beaudurkee Perfection where you don't expect. ..
Just awesome condition. Except for bunkers. Best greens around, very fast. Very challenging course. I have been -1 through 6 several times, but that's were the fun starts. Subtle challenges test your shot making decisions. You really have to think the hole out before you tee off. Course has a ton of water and demands well struck balls to score well. Haven't broke 78, but feels like you should go par.
Plus I just love playing anything Mr.Palmer was involved with. Price is crazy cheap for quality. Has become my regular track even though it's 30 minute drive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by beaudurkee What a find
Played from the tips and got my a.. handed to me... in a great way. Long, tough, and perfect condition. Took us 5+ hours to play with no waiting. I'm a single digit handicap and the 86 I shot felt like a good round. This will definitely go on my must play list for our annual Vegas golf vacation. I put this course on my top played list with Pebble, Torey, and Pumpkin Ridge.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dinkumflicka Great course, slow pace.
Drove down from SLC to play Coyote and a couple other Mesquite area courses. We enjoyed Coyote Springs. The layout was great, fun holes, very challenging. Greens borderline hokey and a lot of places nearly impossible if not impossible to putt from. Only big complaint was the pace of play. We had the 11:40 time and finished in the nick of time before dark (around 5:00 @ the first of January). Waited on every single hole. Pace was so slow it was demoralizing. Not a marshall in sight. Would give this course another shot.

by turbo740 Tough place to play
Well worth the price paid for admission. I found a really cheap price. A really tough Nicklaus design. Not a straight putt on the course. I should have played from the white tees. The blue tees are longer than blue tees at other courses. The rough is long but helps to keep your ball from rolling into the desert. The course condition was very good considering this place is in the middle of nowhere. An hour drive from the strip was worth it. Staff is very friendly. Grass is very green and putts rolled true. I'd love to go back and play better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by wright2k Do not hesitate to make the drive
Sometimes I wonder why I get up in my Las Vegas hotel room first thing in the morning to go play golf. Part of this is to keep me out of trouble late at night on the casino floor and part of it is for glorious mornings like I had at Coyote Springs. While I certainly caught a break on the weather (sunny, low 60's and no wind), I was first off the tee on a Sunday and it was literally just me and the golf course. The only sound I could hear was when I hit the flagstick with an 8-iron on the Par 4 sixth hole. The staff at this property was fantastic and the Nicklaus signature design is one of his finest. Mountains on both sides of the course and absolutely no buildings whatsoever around the edges. I came away from this experience with more pictures than pars, but I will not hesitate to make the drive from the Las Vegas Strip at the crack of dawn again. Besides, I honestly didn't see a posted speed limit on the road to get to Coyote Springs...so let's just say my commute did not take as long as I initially thought.

Rated 4 out of 5 by doittdrywall Fairways are amazing greens need attention
If the greens received attention this course would be five star Everything else is in great shape the fairways were outstanding as were the traps and t boxes

Rated 2 out of 5 by watty9006 The course is a challenge, but greens are really bad shape
At this time, I don't recommend spending your time or money on this course. The greens are in terrible shape with many bare spots and a lot of sod patches. Evidently sprayed with the wrong chemicals? There are plenty of nice courses in Vegas to play, so at this time don't waste the hour drive to play this course. I would play it again when the greens have recovered.
