Back in June, Anna and I had the opportunity to head out to Las Vegas ahead of a couple mini-tour events and play Coyote Springs Golf Course in Coyote Springs, Nevada. It’s a little over an hour drive away from the strip.
Coyote Springs Golf Course is a Jack Nicklaus designed desert course and even though it’s a little bit of a drive, it was well worth it.
We set our tee time for 9am, which made it a little bit of an early morning for us as we had to go and get our rental car prior to driving out. So we got up about 5:30am and started making our way to the course at 7am. I think normally this would’ve been plenty of time but along the final 30 minutes to the course, it came down to a single lane and construction so we waited for a while. We got to the course about 20 minutes prior to our tee time but that’s okay! When you can’t control the circumstances around you, you control how you react.
As you pull up you can see the surrounding mountains and it looks beautiful! But I don’t think it really hits you until you are standing on the course. It’s because you see the juxtaposition of the insanely well manicured, green fairways and the incredible mountains as the backdrop. The staff was awesome and super accommodating. There’s a little bit of a drive from the clubhouse to the range and first tee. And then you’re off!
The course was in great shape, which always makes for an enjoyable round of golf. On top of that, pace of play was on point. The course did have it’s challenging holes and greens! So don’t think it’ll be a cake walk. But it was nothing we couldn’t handle. We actually enjoy when you can just blast driver on every par 4 and par 5, it made you think about how to work your way around the course. And some of those par 3s! Overall, it’a definitely a course we would absolutely love to play again and we would recommend if you’re trying to get out of Vegas and get a round of golf in. Bonus: it’s a public course and reasonably priced!
