First time to play it. The course is very short. No Par 5's. A couple of the Par 3's were a little long. You can leave your driver in the bag except perhaps for #8. The course is very tight and you can get in trouble quickly. Bring extra balls. The greens were in good shape, but seemed a little slow. Fairways were wet here and there, and some of the teeboxes were somewhat chopped up. Here's the best advice I can give: do NOT go for directions on Mapquest, Google, or any other site. They are all wrong. Call the Pro shop for directions. All in all, I would probably play this course again if nothing else was available.
Short but challenging course. Price was very low which made the value excellent. Condition wasn’t the greatest but the greens were actually good given the time of year. Would definitely come back. Clubhouse was under construction.
Narrow and challenging
Many fairways are in ravines which are narrow. You have to hit straight or you will be off into the bush looking for lost balls. Very challenging but a good course for all skill levels.
Where is Coyote Trails?
Coyote Trails was a beautiful 9 hole course and we really enjoyed playing it. The website registration said we were pre-paid but I was abruptly contradicted for not reading my email fine print that states due upon arrival. Why call it pre-pay if you take all my credit card info, say its prepaid - but it's actually not?! More importantly, golfers should be instructed to NOT use mapquest - or they will never find the course. More instructions on getting to the location would have been very helpful. We wasted too much time trying to get there.
I'm really torn about this review, but I have to say what must be said: This was a disappointing experience.
There is a lot of construction going on, so there are no amenities and no clubhouse. The staff are in a trailer. Okay, no big deal. You have to do what's necessary, right? Well, that would be nice. But they didn't even have a bathroom, just a portable john.
The conditions were spotty. There was tons of crabgrass growing everywhere--even infecting what would otherwise be pretty good greens. They play fast, but they're bumpy, which is a horrible combination. There are no sand bunkers on the course, which you may consider a feature or a bug depending on your game, I guess.
Five of the holes had temporary tees out in the fairways, rendering this course to being (largely) a par-3 layout.
Of course, there was no beverage service or just about anything else you might need or want before or after playing the round.
Obviously, based on the reviews, this course has seen finer days. The layout was okay, but very narrow and difficult to judge where to hit the ball if you haven't played it before.
Now the three things that REALLY bugged me about this round. First, with all of this going on, they have the nerve to charge full price for the round, which was $63 for two (including tax, including a riding cart--which you absolutely must take because of the layout of the course). That's ridiculous. Lousy conditions, temporary tee boxes, zero amenities, yet full price?
Second, not a thing about any of this appeared on their website. We came from 100 miles away, so there was no way around it all after arrival. It's not like we could just turn around and go home. We were sold a pig in a poke.
Finally, what really bothered me is how little they said when we paid our greens fees. Oh, sure, they had a piece of paper lying on a desk saying there were holes with temporary tees, but no indication of the lousy conditions, nor that the temporary tees weren't just off to the side or in front of the regular tee boxes (which were horrible), but that each of those holes was shortened dramatically, changing the entire character of the golf course.
On paper (and on the Web), this looked like a nice little 9-holer. In reality, it was a sad effort, with zero consideration for the customer. I'm not disappointed so much with the (hopefully temporary) conditions. But I am VERY disappointed with how it is being managed and presented.
The course was adequately maintained and the greens were soft and ran true. Having never played here before, I found the layout pretty, but challenging. The par 3s tended be on the long side (150-200 yards), while the par 4s were shorter (225-300 yards), but all fairways were extremely tight with very little room for error. Bring a lot of golf balls, unless you can consistently hit it straight with regularity.
First nine dragged some but back nine played in 70 minutes. Staff is great and course is always challenging but very fun.
Fun and challenging!
Visiting from out of town and wanted to play a quick 9 in the afternoon. Easy to book and super friendly staff. The course has some narrow fairways and made for a fun challenge. It was well maintained, quiet and had an excellent pace of play. We would definitely come back again!
