Great course to play

The Tournament course is one of the best courses in the bay area. Always in great condition. The lay out is excellent and challenging. Had some issues with checking in. pro shop staff said my tee time was not available because Golfnow has been over booking the same tee time.. They were able to give me later time at same rate I had paid on line. This is the third time I had issues at Coyote creek when checking in. Not the way i like to start my round of golf

Won the prize of rudeness in staffing

We played on April 18 and April 20, a match among 4 players. Secured tee time online via Golfnow. At check in the staff declined the confirmation with Golfnow and confirmed discounted rates. Claimed GolfNow should not have access to their inventory supposedly for the past 3 weeks. Net, we paid the rack rates. This had never happened once in the 20+ years and thousands of rounds I had played using GolfNow. The worst part was how the staff delivered the message. They were rude, painted GolfNow as the bad guys. Totally unbelievably bad experience. I will never go back to this course, nor would I recommend it to anyone I know. Avoid at all cost. To top it off, it was a 5 1/2 hour round. Brutal.

Still one of the best!

It’s been decades since much of the Valley Course sat on the old Riverside GC, but both the Valley and Tournament Course are well-designed, well-maintained tracks! With the ease of GolfNow and it’s proximity to Silicon Valley, I’m surprised it doesn’t get more play. Give this challenging layout a try. It’s a.great value course!

Golf Now and Coyote Creek Glitch

Apparently there was a glitch between Golf Now booking and Coyote Creek , which over booked the afternoon. Our original tee time was 1:50PM for a foursome. We were told the soonest we could play was over an hour later. The staff tried to compensate for this booking error by providing (1) large bucket of balls for the driving range for a foursome. After this inconvenience, we finally got the green light to tee off, only to have one of the carts die on the second hole, which is a good distance from the club house. It took (5) phone call attempts to get through to the club house to swap carts. We were told they would provide a new cart right away.... FORTY FIVE (45) minutes later, they finally replaced the cart. The only reasoning they had was due to the overbooking and "one of those days". The manger told us we would be comped for the round, but I still have the charge pending.... Overall it was a poor experience and a seven hour round. Totally understand a bad day, but it how you react that defines you......

Best course in Santa Clara Valley

The Tournament course is by far the best course in Santa Clara Valley and surrounding area I always find the play and condition to be excellent. This last time the greens were punched and sanded. i realize this needs to be done but the staff did not mention this condition when asked about tee times or when we checked in. I would have play elsewhere and then played Tournament course in a couple of weeks when greens return to normal

Nice course

We enjoyed playing here. Good layout and tee box choices. Shame about the noisy highway that basically runs through it

Take a good book

The four some in front of us were 1 hole then two holes then three holes behind the group in front of them. Marshal insisted they were with in the course of play. Can you spell torture? I like the course but they should roll the greens. I'll need to skip this course until I forget this day

Fun course

Coyote creek can be really fun if you're hitting it straight. There is danger on both sides, so make sure you bring a few extra balls.
The front nine is a little easier. The last two holes are the toughest because the wind blows strong and there's water everywhere.

awesome conditions

One of my favorite courses in the south san jose area. the course conditions are similar to a private country club. Great Tee boxes, fairways are cut with some rough on edges, greens roll true with subtle breaks.
The tournament course is worth the challenges!!
