With the official beginning of Summer upon us, we welcome one of the best times of the year to golf in the Las Vegas area. Longer days and extra sunshine with the still-comfortable winds and ‘just right’ temperature. June in the Las Vegas area represents truly some of the greatest weather for golf in the world.
The recent US Open tournament at Bethpage Black is all about amazing golf and highlights one of the greatest public golf courses in America. On the heels of this tournament, it is interesting to note the similarities between Bethpage Black and Coyote Springs. The famous golf architect, A.W. Tillinghast is credited with influencing the design of Bethpage Black, and Jack Nicklaus, the designer of the Coyote Springs course, credits much in his designs to the influence of Tillinghast. Only a few of the many golf course designers in America are held in as such high esteem as Jack Nicklaus and A.W. Tillinghast. Also noteworthy is that the course specifications are very similar; Bethpage Black plays at 7,468 yards, course Rating of 77.5 and Slope Rating of 155. Coyote Springs plays at 7,471 Yards, Course Rating of 76.8 and Slope Rating of 149. Very challenging stats!
The takeaway here is that if you want to know what it’s like to play a PGA-level Major Championship course, Coyote Springs provides exactly that and it’s within easy reach of the Las Vegas area. With the long sunny desert days soon upon us, a quick drive to a setting characterized as Nature’s Cradle for a wonderful round of golf with lunch at Mitch’s Diner, still gets you back on the strip nice and early for a night only Vegas can offer!
