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. 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 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.

The drive is worth it if you’ve never played this course. Biggest practice area I ever seen. The course is very demanding but fair. I played the blue tees at 6800+ yards and was lucky my short game was in top notch form. The greens can be tricky as there are very few straight putts. I was below most the holes and putting uphill which made it seem easier. Great course, a must play for sure. I will be back again.

Golfnow Hot Deal, staff on arrival welcoming and friendly. The starter made the intro and sent off to the first tee 11.10 and on time. The course was in great condition and from tee to great on February 1 conditons were excellent. Th eonly negative was the pace of play, group of 4 in front had no concept of time 4 hours to play 14 holes. Only advice to staff ionstead of marshall sitting back in the shade p[lease maintain the pace of play.

Worth the drive from Vegas. Pulled in to the parking lot and right away the staff was there and friendly. Only complaint would be we didn’t get to play 18 as the ranger said we had to have the cart back by five but the 17 holes we did play were all in great shape, well designed. It was a tough course even with the wind not blowing too hard. I’ll go back in a heartbeat if I’m ever in Vegas again.

I have quite a few of these to review today so I will keep it simple.

The Good: Overseeded fairways and tees, sand in bunkers, challenging greens, weather, great yardage book, very friendly staff, merchandise on sale, great design, great practice facility.

The not as good: Some crazy pin placements, still have the clubhouse in a trailer, takes awhile to get here.

I enjoy the course. Very challenging for the above average golfer. wide fairways, huge greens. will come back next time in Vegas/Mesquite.

This course is in the middle of nowhere so be prepared to drive about 50 minutes of desert view from Vegas. Layout is fantastic with variety of holes. The main challenge of this course is their bunkers. Like most Nicklaus design, bunkers are deep and not always fair. Greens are also very undulating and chipping brings in whole lot of challenge that requires lot of thinking. I would recommend this for better golfers since someone new at the game might find it frustrating.

This is another very tough Nicklaus design course.

Play the correct tees and you will enjoy your round.

Pin placements and the size of the greens make this a extremely difficult course. All the greens are well protected by water or several bunkers.

Some work needs to be done on the areas around the greens.

Course was in nice condition. Pace of play was good except when I got behind a group of six who knew little about golf and took forever. Followed them for a couple of holes. Got passed them at number 10 and pace afterwards was great. Played with a nice couple from Toronto who made the day enjoyable. Ran into the marshal one hole after getting by the large group and he went and had a talk with them. The entire staff was very nice.

The course is a little long for me at a little over 6,200 from the whites. Wish they had a set of tees around 6,000. The course plays a little longer because many of the holes have bunkers in front and you can't run a shot up. Player tip - putts to the west are slow and to the east fast.

This course has several really tough holes and gets a lot of play because of its reputation. The problem is many people who play it either don't have the skill levels or play from the wrong tees! Since they don't have a ranger to keep slow groups moving you may get stuck on the course for 6 hours as we did. Since it is an hours drive from Vegas that takes up 8 hours of your day. I love the course but doubt if I'll ever be back unless I can get an 8am tee time and beat the slow play!

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.
