Played as second group out on a Friday, so pace of play was no issue. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Course itself was challenging but fair, lots of room off the tee but difficult green complexes (a Nicklaus staple, but mostly fair). The greenside bunkers are maybe starting to show their age a little, regardless they are difficult to get out of so use caution on approach shots. The scenery, very dramatic and picturesque from start to finish!

Great Nicklaus design (wouldn't expect anything less!) and course was in extremely good condition. A great value and must play if you're in the Vegas area.

Tee shots have pretty generous landing areas, but many fairways have numerous undulations where it can be difficult to have a level lie. Approach shots and around the greens can be very challenging, as the greens are well bunkered and have several tiers to allow for a lot of different pin placements. You need to really think your way around this course and keep the ball below the hole on the greens if possible. The course has a great variety of holes so you won't get bored.

I found it very enjoyable to play - can be difficult at times but not unfair. Well worth the hour drive north of Vegas. Only observation is that I played on a Saturday early afternoon as a single and there were a number of foursomes ahead. Many were friendly and let me play through but it was pretty backed up. But, on a weekend you kind of expect more players. Play during the week or later on a weekend if you want to try and play faster. Again, if you want to play a really nice Nicklaus course, you've got to play here.

The course was in great condition. The layout is challenging and can be as long as your driver can handle. There is not a level spot on the greens. possibly the most challenging I've ever putted on. If you like a challenging and scenic course, come on and play.

Everything about Coyote Springs was outstanding. A great Nicklaus layout. Bunkers are deep, fairways are wide. Greens are consistent with a few areas in need of repair. Overall, well worth the money. Will play it every time we are in Vegas.

Very nice layout lot of undulation . Need to think on approach shots Traps are well placed. On a couple of Tees feel that the natural growth needs trimmed a bit, not that it should affect shot but does make line of site a bit awkward.

I wanted to like this course. A lot. I really did.

But all I can say is that, it's okay. For the drive from Las Vegas, I'd rather go up to Wolf Creek or Pauite. The staff is very friendly. The pace of play fantastic. But, the heat and lack of water is killing the course. Many greens severely patched. They hadn't rolled the greens or cut them when I played, a Saturday, so they were VERY slow and bumpy. The fairways were struggling to stay green. Layout and design were fantastic.

The clubhouse is a series of mobile trailers. Practice facility is good. The practice green was under repair when I played.

I heard that they are going to try to move forward with permitting for the home complex and other course, again. That will sink the existing course and kill it when the economy hits its next recession.

As I said, I really wanted to like it because I heard good things about it.

Played 36 holes in 6 1/2 hours. First group out. Enjoyed playing the course again after a few years. Greens held approach shots well. Pace of greens was average for desert. Don't know how they keep rough so thick but fair. Only downside is how far it is out there. Would play again. Free replay was great

We had heard about this course after playing in Mesquite. WOW is all I can say. The course is gorgeous. Great layout. Mr Nicholas does love his undulating greens and bunkers :)

Fairways and greens were in great shape. The staff was incredible. From the check in through the restaurant. Truly you have to have the breakfast sandwhich. Maybe the best we have ever had. Prices were more than reasonable. Definitly worth the hour drive from Las Vegas.

Course is gorgeous. Beautiful scenery and fairways. Greens had been recently aerated, but overall, look like they are very nice when in their prime. Two glaring weaknesses we encountered were the sandtrap's and tee boxes.

The sandtraps look pristine but when you actually have to hit a shot out of them (I had plenty of experience with this, unfortunately) you encounter a different condition. The layer of pristine sand is thin with what seems like a basketball court underneath. Lots of bladed shots from bounced club heads.

The tee boxes had not been placed on the back nine by the time we got around to them which was around 9am. Not a reflection on the course but more so on the maintenance. Not a major deal as we took the liberty to hit from where we wanted to as the tee box markers laid in a heap off the side of each tee box. Just expect a little more effort from such a beautiful course.

The course is set by itself in the desert and is very beautiful. Built in 2008, it is mature and lush with desert vegetation.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. They had plenty of water and other amenities for golifers. The only problem is they let Jack Nicklaus design it. There is not a level lie in the fairways which are mostly moguls. Many times you never knew where your ball was going after it hit the fairway. He even put bunkers in the middle of fairways. There were a lots of water hazards and bunkers also to catch your golf balls. The greens though we're more reasonable. For 20 handicappers, we found the course designed more for single digits players. We have played several courses designed by Jack and this carries on his mantra of testing your ability to constantly hit off uneven list and out of bunkers. There is another course there layed out by Pete Dye and Jack.....hold me back when that nightmare gets built. I think skilled golfers would enjoy this test of golf and for the value it was very good.

An abandoned Jack Nicholas course in the middle of nowhere? Sounded like a good road trip. As I drove out there my thoughts were did I have enough gas, snacks and water incase something happened, you feel like you are off the map, and cell service was spotty. Staff were so nice and the practice facility with free balls was also very nice. I forgot how much undulation Jack's fairways and greens have so I found the course pretty hard. Conditions were great though. They say they will be building houses there soon so if you want to try it I would do it before then. I won't play it again because it is just too far out there. Definitely worth trying if that doesn't concern you!

The signature bear traps (excellent sand) are so numerous and strategically placed the average golfer would be frustrated. An hour drive from Las Vegas in the middle of nowhere. I''m sure collegiate golfers and experienced tournament players would enjoy the challenge. We don't know what purpose the alleged "ranger" serves. We encountered him at hole 16 just minutes before dusk at 6:30 pm which would have been 4.5 hours into the round.
