Coyote Creek is situated just west of Sundre, nestled in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies. The golf course is comprised of two distinct nines, the Deer Nine and the Coyote Nine. Opened in 2005, the Deer Nine was the first of the two to open. The Coyote was added three years later. The Deer Nine features undulating greens that are balanced by wide, player-friendly fairways. The bunkering is seemingly minimal but it's strategically positioned to punish errant shots. The golf course opens with an intimidating par 4 with a double-tiered green but the toughest hole comes next. This par 4 is also the longest, playing to a massive green that has two bunkers on each side. Laying up short of the green is an option if you can't reach it in two.

We were a 3-some & were held up at every hole by a group of 6 players. This situation is shameful. Later found out that a few of these players were friends of the owners/GM. Nice & convenient for them but very rude to those playing behind them.

As always, a pleasant experience, including great golf course, courteous & helpful staff. The only complaint was that they were unable to increase the temperature and the amount of sunshine. Other than that, a very good day.

Solid design with interesting holes - moderate difficulty, mostly generous off the tee, some water in play, and lots of deep bunkers in play (watch for variable sand depth though). Moderate sized greens with moderate slope - rolled very true with the odd bump. Fairways carpet-like due to lots of recent rain. Overall very good shape - well maintained. Mostly in tall trees though sometimes adjacent to associated RV resort lots - good chance to find your ball quickly if in the trees, but not always. Excellent range (grass) and good practice green. Good electric carts. Friendly staff - checkin, snackbar, snack cart, cart guys. Very good value on GN Hot Deal.

Good, honest, golf course. Greens, bunkers and fairways always in great shape. Most of the holes are straightforward. Beautiful, peaceful setting amidst resort homes and RVs. You won't have to worry about the homes and RVs unless you really spray the ball. Clubhouse staff and marshalls are personable, and the residents or other locals that you might join up with are friendly and easy-going.

We were not sure what to expect of this course, but had a very enjoyable afternoon. The course, while not overly challenging, is very well maintained, the greens were fast and in excellent shape. Most fairways are wide and generous. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. No complaints here!

5 1/2 hr round and no marshal after tourney was done after the first 9 holes. 2 4 somes in front were always taking a long time looking for balls and wouldn't let our 2 some through. We ended up playing with the 4 some behind as a 6 person for last 4 holes and still waiting on the 4 some in front of us. Might go back but don't know yet.

I have played here a few times with GolfNow specials that make this a great value.

The course is in really good shape, with fairways in particularly nice condition. The setting is lovely, and the RVs and vacation homes do not detract from the golf. The clubhouse staff are friendly and efficient. And I have been paired up with nice, relaxed people.

On this course, hazard = bunkers. There is little water, no elevation change, and no serious doglegs. Unfortunately, there is a sameness to some of the holes.

I would like to say the course is great.. good condition... but do not go there if you are just learning. Jerry in the pro shop verbaly attracted us on the course was rude in his approach tone. He yelled at us to pick our ball of the green and go to the next hole as they were very busy that day. He was so angry he practically spit on us when he spoke. Watch this course if your a new golfer or wanting to learn or if you plan on golfing there with your family Jerry will go out of his way to make you feel abused!! Dont think ill go back as long ad Jerry is there. Way to wreck the sport Jerry you are a rude old man!!
