This place just can’t seem to get it right. We try it at least once a year hoping to see improvement but we are always disappointed. Hacked up fairways, goloher mounds everywhere, mud slogs, and six inch rough. We waited on every single shot and have never been able to play this course in under five hours. No Marshall, no refreshment cart. Are you kidding me? Why would anybody overpay to play there when there are so many better choices?

I have been playing here since it opened in 1999/2000, although I haven't played there for 3-4 years. its semi links style with not many trees and undulating greens. the greens were in great shape but they definitely watered them as they were slow for this time of year. The other 18 hole course, Eagles Talon is more challenging and longer. Coyote Creek is shorter, tighter and more target golf. One thing I didn't like is on a few holes they let the longer tee boxed overgrow and do not use anymore, which for a longer hitter i don't like, and they should adjust the length of the course on the card as its misleading. other than that i really like the course and advise any golfer to play there. Also they used to have a practice bunker and got rid of it(its harder and harder to find practice bunkers)

Overall soggy but that is expected for the time of year and the year we are having. The new carts are awesome. Just be aware if you go off the path it warns you and it slows you way down until you get back on the path. Also, the range balls seem to very old.

There was all covered with water and grass every where in fairway and even in tee box. No maintenance staff. I hardly could find balls in the rough. Who can say this is a golf course.

When I asked about conditions, the fellow at the clubhouse admitted that the first two holes on the Coyote Creek course were wet but "don't be discouraged," it gets better. It did. But then it got worse. My partner and I lost several balls in the muck on and around the fairways. Some fairways are fine but overall, the course is just too wet, swampy in places. It needs a week or so to dry out.

"Coyote Creek Course in Horrible Condition 4/29/17"


Age:  45-54

Played on 04/29/2017
Previously played Walked Perfect weather

Reviewed on

We teed off today, Saturday, 4/29/2017, and our tee time 11:06 am. We were delayed 30 min. due to a men's club event we were not informed of. The main issue is the course condition. We had inquired as to the condition of the course prior to making the tee time and paying. We were flat out lied to. This course, as I am sure Eagle's Talon, the connected Willows Run course, is a mess: soggy, muddy, fairways the majority of which had deep mud ruts and heavy grass clippings (4-5 inches deep!), so that the "fairway" was totally obscured. We hit the fairways, but could not find our balls due to the deep grass clippings and deep mud ruts. Just trying to walk this course in the muddy condition is a challenge! The Marshall even said, "You'll be fine if you stay in the fairways"...WHAT fairways?? There were soggy, but clear fairways on only about 4 of the 18 holes. Yes, I know we have had lots of rain this winter, but tell the truth before charging $48.00, including tax. The greens are spongy and bumpy. Weeds growing on several mounds beside tee boxes, as if no one cares for this course. Both Coyote Creek and Eagles Talon at Willows Run used to be a beautiful courses, but have obviously gone downhill and owners are not working on drainage, greens keeping, or even easy landscaping like pulling weeds. So sorry to see what was once a beautiful course in this condition!

Course was in pretty good shape considering the weather conditions. Lots of high lofted shots plugged and were unable to find in the fairway. But this time of year is like that.

I played your Coyote Creek course and was very disappointed that we were not told, before we started, that hole #2 and several others were under water (I mean completely under water) and unplayable. I feel you should not be charging full fees and should inform golfers of this. Need more yardage markers also.
