High expectations. Meh quality.

Coyote Hills is an amazing asset nestled in the hills contouring the Fullerton oil fields. With that said, the course quality just isn’t there. For a course that has so many tangible opportunities to provide a fantastic golf experience, it hits sub standard results in execution.
1. The area around the greens need over seeding. Bare dirt is unacceptable and I had to move my ball on almost every hole that I missed the green to find actual grass.
2. The fairways don’t have enough grass either. Coyote Hills is challenging because missing the fairway usually means losing a golf ball, so you should be equally rewarded when hitting the fairway. There just isn’t enough grass to provide a decent lie, so you are basically hitting from a tight lie made up of compacted dirt.
3. Absolutely no water coolers on the course. None. Which is a physical representation of the service quality from staff. Besides Brian at the starter box. He was delight!
4. The last point is because of what they used to offer. Because of so many blind tee shots, you have to double check before you tee off. The carts in front of you used to be tracked on the cart monitor. That is not available anymore and unfortunately the greatness of Coyote “Hills” becomes a liability because there is not enough mitigation of risk.

This will probably be the last time I play Coyote Hills. For $100 per player, that premium comes with a certain expectation, and Coyote Hills simply doesn’t meet that anymore.

Fun course

I enjoyed the layout of the course a lot. Different elevations and plentiful bunkers keeps you on your toes, without making it too challenging. Course was in good condition, no complaints at all on that front. Stoked to get back out there in the future

Great layout and value

Played first thing in the morning pace of play was fantastic.
Layout is great and some holes very tight.
Was still wet which is understandable due to severe rainfall.
Senior rate was much appreciated.
Will play again!

DELIVERS EVERY TIME

Had a 12:15pm tee time on a Sunday that had heavy rain forecasted for 3pm that day. I showed up 40 minutes before the tee time and had the pro shop give me the green light to head out to the first tee on my own. With almost no one on the course, it was a great experience and was able to have a fun round that was done in 3 hours (cart path only but was expected for the course conditions).
The layout is average length but a tight one, so accuracy is a must! There are also numerous elevation changes and natural hazards and obstacles to overcome, making it a target golf-like experience. The greens have been better maintained than in prior months as well, so the roles were true and quick despite the wetter conditions.
For the price, you really can't go wrong with booking a tee time at Coyote Hills. If you are an average to above average golfer that can keep it close to the fairway. Would definitely return!

Another overpriced OC course

For a $100 course the conditions were embarrassing. Slow bumpy greens, dry dirt around every green. Grass patches missing. Very little grass in the fairways. Green side bunkers had no sand which is inexcusable. Fun and interesting layout, incredibly narrow from the gold tees and but a short course.

A Challenge

Bring your four letter repertoire to this course. Payne Stewart might have gotten his first name here. But seriously it’s a fun challenging course. The staff is terrific as well as the bar and food. Definitely want revenge and I’ll be back!

Overrated

Driving range closed. Chipping area non-existant. One of the managers allowed to chip and putt in an area that was closed to public! Tee boxes, fairways and greens in sad state.

Greens are immaculate

Played in the pouring rain for the first hour but the greens drained really well. Some bad puddles and mud around but for the most part well maintained.

Tee boxes are rough in some places but pretty good.

There are some slip hazards when it’s that muddy, completely fell, feet out from under me, while trying to get down a green side embankment.

Still a solid course and difficult for a par 70. Lots of OB and some really tight approach shots.

For course layout there are a lot places that make you lay up off the tee unless you carry 285.

Pace was great but also not many people out on a rainy day.

Delightfully surprised

I was so pleased that I got in 18 holes in less than 4 hours in the holiday season. This was a Christmas gift to. Myself! Really enjoyed the guys I played with.
