Coyote Springs Golf Course



Coyote Springs Golf Club was designed by the Golden Bear, Jack Nicklaus. Right there you could stop reading this description and know this Las Vegas Golf Region course is worth the play. And you would be correct.

Coyote Springs debuted in 2009 and immediately was included on the “best new courses” lists of several major golf publications. The praise was profuse, to say the least. Coyote Springs was ranked the #2 best new golf course in 2009 by Golf Digest and #3 by Golf Magazine on their respective “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. Some venture to say it is his best desert design.

“No words arranged by me can paint the epic sweep and isolation of (Coyote Springs Golf Club),” is how Sports Illustrated writer 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.”

The Coyote Springs setting has been characterized as Nature’s Cradle — a magnificent valley surrounded by majestic mountains and peaks on all four sides. To the north, south and east respectively, are the Delamar Mountains, the Arrow Mountains and Meadow Valley Mountains, each rising to an average elevation of 5,000 feet. And to the west, the Sheep Range, which reaches 9,000 feet into the sky, is snow-capped during the winter months and provides an amazing backdrop for peak season golfers.

The Golden Bear on Coyote Springs: “First of all, it is kind of in a unique area. It is about 45 minutes outside of Las Vegas and situated in an area where there really was nothing. Coyote Springs created its own area and identity. Similar to Lyle Anderson’s vision for Desert Mountain, when he took a remote piece of property north of Scottsdale and well north of Phoenix and created one of the world’s top golf clubs and communities, (there was a similar vision for) Coyote Springs. We were fortunate to be part of that vision. We took a piece of property that had a very nice setting, surrounded by mountains, and created some movement in it and created, what I think, is a very nice golf course.

“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.”

Golf packages are available with Las Vegas Strip resorts and hotels in Mesquite, Nevada. In addition corporate groups and other tournaments are always welcome at Coyote Springs.
