Coyote Springs was also ranked the #2 best new course in 2009 by Golf Digest and #3 by Golf Magazine on its "Best New Courses You Can Play" list in 2008. In 2010, Golfweek included the course on its list of Top 100 Residential courses. The course is just one of many Nicklaus golf courses to earn such accolades and most assuredly belongs among his best.
In other news from Coyote Springs, the facility now has a liquor license and is offering sandwiches. And, as has been the case for several months, golfers can enjoy this Las Vegas golf course without a mandatory caddie. Coyote Springs is located about 50 miles north of Las Vegas but is worth the drive. Tee times are also now available seven days a week at the course.
“No words arranged by me can paint the epic sweep and isolation of The Chase (Coyote Springs Golf Club)," is how Sports Illustrated's Gary Van Sickle has described it. "It’s a daily fee golf course that feels like your own private desert. This is more than just a golf course; it’s a golf experience.” Also available at Coyote Springs are official Las Vegas golf packages in conjunction with the Golden Nuggett.
