This course was rated among Golf Digest’s “Best Places to Play” two consecutive years in a row!
The course designers elected to follow the natural terrain of the existing property versus using tons of fill dirt. The result is a course with an abundance of undulating fairways which rewards course management versus a “grip it and rip it” mentality.
The front nine is predominately a desert layout with one lake. Hole number six on the front nine “THE RIDGE” is very unique and memorable. It is a par five that plays only 549 yards from the back tee, but 100 yards from the front edge of this elevated green is a 12 foot tall rock wall. The wall is intimidating, and many golfers have failed to clear it trying to go for this par 5 green in two.
The back nine is a more traditional layout with three lakes impacting play on seven holes. Players can master this challenging course if they control distance and know when to manage tee shots on select holes.
The Textron TKV GPS system on every golf cart is like having a tour caddie with you throughout your round. This system gives precise measurements to greenside bunkers and other obstacles to par. Since incorporating the system, the average pace of play at Coyote Lakes has been slightly over 4 hours.
This challenging golf course is loaded with amenities, yet still affordable.
