Coyote Springs Offers Chance to Play Special Nicklaus Course

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (April 29, 2017)–Sometimes driving a little can save golfers a lot. Such is the case at Coyote Springs Golf Club. With a membership fee of $119, Coyote Springs’ 2017 Coyote Club lets players save right from the start–and keep on saving. It starts with a free round of golf. There’s also the benefit of discounted rates for every round played. Members also receive four guest passes giving their friends a discounted rate. Add in 10 percent off at Mitch’s Bar & Grill and 10 percent off merchandise in the pro shop and this membership pays for itself quickly. –By Bill Bowman.

Located just an hour north of Las Vegas, Coyote Springs is a par-72 Jack Nicklaus Signature Course that reaches 7,471 yards from the tips. This one is well worth the drive.

“The Coyote Club definitely gives the golfer who loves this place–like a lot of people do–reduced green fees to join,” said Karl Larcom, director of golf.

How good’s the deal? Well, as an example, in mid-April the usual Clark County rate is $67 Sunday through Thursday while Coyote Club members pay just $42.

“We’re simply trying to reward our loyal players and we see them out here a lot…usually one or more times a month,” Larcom added.

And if it’s a Nicklaus course, that means beauty and challenges. There are stunning water features on 11 of the holes. There are also more than 100 bunkers that must be avoided.

The final hole on each nine will impress and test everyone’s shotmaking ability as well as aggressiveness. Both holes are par 4s but it’s not the length that is the challenge. It’s the placement off the tee. The 9th (a dog-leg left) is 410 yards while the 18th (a dogleg right) is just 375 yards. But, they can be treacherous as a huge pond separates the holes and comes into play from tee to green. A few large bunkers (especially on the 9th) will also force players to come up with pin-point shots.

So if you’re looking for that world-class golf experience with budget-friendly pricing, the Coyote Club might just fit the bill. In this case, it’s drive for show…and to save some dough.

Coyote Springs also has a special where players can tee it up in the morning and an afternoon round is absolutely free. The morning tee time must be before 10 a.m. Click here for details. “Our Coyote Club members definitely take advantage of this,” Larcom said.
