In addition to the golf, the 8-Man Championship features parties at TI (Treasure Island)–including a can't miss opening event at Gilley's–, rooms at the resort, tee gifts, breakfast and lunch at the course each day, and more. The cost per player is only $975 ($7800 per team), and includes three rounds of golf and three nights at the TI plus all of the tournament goodies.
Coyote Springs is a stunning Las Vegas golf experience. The course stands alone with no housing or buildings, and meshes seamlessly into the Nevada desert to the north of the Las Vegas valley. Nicklaus designed the course to blend into the mountain backdrops which creates stunning views from every inch of the course.
"The property does have a few washes that run through it and a couple changes in elevation but there was not as much in the golf course—at least in this first golf course we have done," says Nicklaus of his design. "The first golf course sits in a relatively flat area. We tried to tie in some of the features on the rest of the property and some of the outside features to make it feel like the mountains were coming into the golf course. We were bringing the property together, rather than having just a flat piece of property. We try to do that everywhere it makes sense." Click now for the official photo gallery of Coyote Springs.
The format for the tournament is a 2-person scramble the first day, 2-person net best ball on the second day, and six of eight net scores counting on the final day. For more information or details, you can contact Karl Larcom at Coyote Springs at (702) 422-1400 or firstname.lastname@example.org
