Nicklaus’ Coyote Springs Remains Open While Others Overseed

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (Aug. 31, 2018)–There’s a word mentioned in Vegas golf at this time of year that can send chills down the spine of golfers: overseeding. Those words, usually uttered each fall, have golfers everywhere scrambling to find places to play and trying to dodge the before-and-after overseeding scenarios. That’s not the case of Coyote Springs Golf Club, a Jack Nicklaus signature course where there’s no overseeding due to its location, about 50 minutes north of Las Vegas.  –By Bill Bowman, Las Vegas Golf Insider staff

“We pride ourselves on maintaining our rye grass all through the summer so while others are shutting down for overseed, we are in premium condition,” says Karl Larcom, director of golf. “And now when the weather gets nice in September, a lot of people who hung up their clubs because of the warmer weather are anxious to get back out. And September and October are the perfect time-frame, weather-wise. We are open and hope people will come and play the course.”

Plus, from Sept. 1 through Sept. 20, 2018, players can take advantage of late summer rates that will give them a great place to tee it up–and beat the crowds scrambling to find a place to tee it up. So both value and play-ability are available.

“Right now, before the high season rate, is the perfect time to play,” Larcom said. “It’s as low as $55 for residents and about $100 for non-residents. It’s just a great value for the condition of the course.”

This Jack Nicklaus Signature course is a par-72 course reaching 7,471 yards from the tips but multiple sets of tees make it playable and enjoyable for everyone. On the course, more than 100 bunkers add to the beauty of the course and water comes into play on 11 holes. With rolling fairways and daunting elevation changes, it’s as gorgeous as it is challenging.

“With no overseeding, there’s no disruption of play and no cart-path only restrictions,” Larcom said.
