Las Vegas, Nevada (November 14, 2010)–Many times playing golf with the help of a caddie is a great experience, but other times, you want to just tee it up and play casual golf with your buddies without the added cost of a qualified caddie. And starting November 22, Jack Nicklaus' Coyote Springs, will now be allowing golf without caddies anytime during operating hours, taking away the mandatory caddie rule prior to 11 AM that was in place. Coyote Springs is located about 50 miles from the Las Vegas Strip, and The Chase was quickly recognized as a top Las Vegas golf course experience when it opened in 2008. —By Brian Hurlburt.
Course management decided it was time to listen to the golfers who were filling up the tee sheet in the slots post 11 o' clock to take advantage of golf without a caddie. Now they offer the 'no caddie' option for every tee time. The public had spoken, and the course is welcoming the new caddie-free scenario. What that means to all Las Vegas golfers, visiting and local, is that you can save an additional $30, minimum, when reserving your tee times in Las Vegas at The Chase prior to 11 AM. That was the suggested caddie fee–before any additional gratuity–at Coyote Springs.
The Las Vegas golf rates at Coyote Springs, beginning November 22, will be $90 after 11, and $105 prior to 11 for visiting Las Vegas golfers. Local Las Vegas golfers should call the course to learn about special rates for residents who produce a local id. The Chase opened to much national attention in 2008 as it was named to the "Best New" course lists by many national golf publications including Golf Magazine and Golf Digest, among others.
"As it is, some consider The Chase at Coyote Springs Nicklaus' finest desert course to date, which is saying a lot since he has several top courses not only in Nevada but Arizona as well," writes Mike Bailey of WorldGolf.com about The Chase. "The Chase Course features undulating greens, white sand bunkers, and dazzling water hazards." The course also has let it be known that construction on the official clubhouse will begin soon. Currently, a nice temoporary structure is in place, but there are limited food and beverage options available.
