The Coyote Springs community is home to an award-winning Jack Nicklaus signature golf course and the future home to families and businesses seeking the natural beauty, open skies, recreation (including golf), easy access to an international airport, and thriving business centers, all while living just a little ways out of the hustle and bustle.
The Coyote Springs valley — a magnificent valley surrounded by majestic mountains and peaks on all four sides — has been characterized as “nature’s cradle. To the north, south, and east are the Delamar Mountains, the Arrow Mountains, and the Meadow Valley Mountains, each rising to an average elevation of 5,000 feet. And to the west is the Sheep Range, which reaches 9,000 feet into the sky and is snowcapped during winter months and delivers an unbeatable backdrop for peak season golfers. How do you find this desert oasis? Take Interstate-15 south to exit 91 (Moapa Valley/State Route 168). Once on SR 168, head west for 26 miles, and the parking lot will be on your right.
Coyote Springs Golf Club opened in May 2008 and was the first golf course in a planned series of Jack Nicklaus-designed courses that were to flow throughout the Coyote Springs community. The course plays to a par 72 and ranges from 5,349 yards from the forward tees to 7,471 yards from the championship tees. Eleven crystal blue lakes come into play, many with waterfalls you’d see on $300 courses in Vegas! They’re so clear that you’ll wish you’d brought your swimming suit. They have one of the largest and most diverse practice facilities in the world. The current practice facility measures 19 acres and features more than 100,000 square feet and 13 target greens as well as a short game green for pitching, chipping, and bunker practice.
The latest addition to Coyote Springs Golf Club is Mitch’s Bar & Grill. With a commercial kitchen and full bar, Mitch’s Bar & Grill now serves breakfast sandwiches, breakfast burritos, burgers, sandwiches, paninis, hot dogs, quesadillas, freshly baked cookie,s and other great things to come! Mitch’s Bar & Grill is open from about 7 a.m. until about 6 p.m. daily during golf play. Stop by and meet the friendly staff!
The owners of Coyote Springs Golf Club through affiliate entity Coyote Springs Nevada are preparing to start the completion of the water and wastewater treatment plants for the Coyote Springs Master Planned Community. These key utilities have to be complete and operational before the next community development steps can be commenced. Coyote Springs plans to offer a permanent golf clubhouse on the golf course, model homes, a community center, a general store, and a gas station in the future, but the initial phase of the water and wastewater treatment plants and storm detention basins must be complete first. Plans for home sizes, lot sizes, and what the first villages at Coyote Springs will look like and feel like have not been finalized; all of these aspects are being reviewed and options considered during this time that the utility infrastructure is moving toward completion.
In the meantime, Coyote Springs Golf Club hopes that you will drive out, have lunch, and play a bit of golf; or just drive out for a pretty afternoon drive, have lunch, and relax in the peaceful beauty that is Coyote Springs. They are offering a late summer special: Washington County Residents can play in the month of September for the Nevada resident rate! A Utah-issued ID with an address that corresponds to these cities will be required at check-in. A power bill or lease is not a valid form of ID. Take advantage of this great opportunity! Peak season is just around the corner with rates over $130. September temperatures are typically under 100 degrees, and most courses are closing for overseeding.
