Coyote Hills Golf Course is not a really long course, only 6,510 from the Coyote Tees, but it is hilly, has many hazards, some narrow fairways, very few flat lies, most side hill, uphill or downhill. The trees are not as proliferous as many courses, but they are well placed, the native desert brush (some refer to it as beautiful plants - but to a golfer they are nasty weeds!!!) is also part of the rough, as are the bunkers, and the occasional water hazard. There are protected species of native weeds (flora) that are past the out of bounds markers and contribute to the desert motif of this course. It requires, and rewards an accurate placed shot. Several Oil Pump Jacks decorate the course, well out of play, and they are staked out of bounds. I bruised one with a wicked slice, and the pump jack kicked my ball back into the fairway. The greens are fast, many are very large (you can hit on in regulation and still have a 40 ft. putt for birdie), and have many subtle and some not so subtle, breaks. It can be more difficult than the course rating and handicap indicates, if shots are not well placed in the fairways and greens that are not automatic. While it is not Target Golf, It is Laser Accurate Golf. (Of my GIR's, I birdied one and parred the rest.) On the easy side, it is a good course to play if you do not hit the long ball, since many par 4's are under 400 yards.

It is a very well maintained course, scenic course, has a great staff, and nice clubhouse. Golf costs between $75 - $125 per round at this course, operated by American Golf. So for a 20 handicapper, I enjoyed the course, found it more difficult than the 12 and 15 handicappers I played with. They shot under their handicap and considered it easy. However I will say this is a very good course to play. This golf course is a reclaimed former oil field, which shows that industry and the environment can coexist in a remarkably productive and fulfilling existence.
