Played 7 Am first out on Thursday 8/16. Same comments as last review. They had sprinklers running on first fairway so we waited a few minutes. Cool morning start just what we wanted and skies clear smoke from wildfires gone too. The greens had some type of fertilizer on them and the mower left a few dabs of foam on the greens maybe one or two spots that were a little larger than the ball not a factor putting just an illusion on par 3 once.
Conditions tee to green excellent. Greens holding med/fast and true. All that you'd expect of a course with this rack price green fees. $180 We played with a golf moose voucher so enjoyed the savings.
If you want to play Tahoe golf in prime conditions Coyote won't disappoint you right now.
The severe downhill 13th hole par 3 and the short par 4 dog left 14th ; need to pay attention to elevation and distances if playing the first time.

This was the first round of my Tahoe trip this morning with ppark81. We had a 7:00 tee time (first off) and the staff was super nice. Really just us and one other twosome ready to go that early. Unfortunately, it was kind of weird that they also sent the maintenance guys out on the course to mow the greens right at 7:00 and we were asked not to push them too much. We watched as the poor guy frantically mowed the 1st green with a small push mower, and I should mention that the greens here are massive and undulated like crazy. We felt bad for him and there were a couple other guys out on the course ahead. Eventually they started to jump around and we didn't run into them too much after awhile. It was just strange they wait until the first tee time to start the mowing of the gigantic greens and then do them in the slowest way possible!
Otherwise, we REALLY enjoyed ourselves and still finished with a good 3:15 pace. The price we got was great with the GolfMoose voucher minus a gift certificate won at a GK Plays. Ended up being $87 each compared to the normal weekend morning rack rate of $175 during this shoulder season.
The course was in good overall condition considering it's still pretty early in the season for Truckee's mountain courses and the summer turf is really just coming in. Tee boxes, fairways and rough were mostly pretty good with some fluffy spots, some thin spots and some patchy areas. Not pristine, but pretty nice. Bunkers had great soft sand but could use a little professional raking/dragging to level out a lot of lumpy spots, animal footprints, etc. The greens were kind of the same story as the fairways. Still a little patchy, but holding shots well in the morning and rolling at medium speeds with a few little bumps here and there. In another month, I can imagine this place is super nice.
As for the layout, I fell in love with this place from the moment we pulled into the parking lot. I love mountain courses and this is mountain golf to the max. Tight, hilly and demanding, but not unfair in any way. Good scores can be had on any hole with proper strategy/execution. There are tons of trees and big boulder outcroppings, which are often integrated with some of the elaborate bunkering. The greens are huge and full of significant undulations. It's simply a stunning setting for a golf course. The long, skinny and diagonal 3-tiered 18th green is something to behold in person and it's pretty much the first thing you see when you drop your clubs off with the cart staff. Speaking of the staff, great service all around, especially the starter who was very friendly and helpful as we waited to tee off. I'd like to see their early morning maintenance plan handled better, though! That was the only minor blemish on an otherwise awesome golf experience at Coyote Moon!
this is a par 3 at 205/187yds from blue/whites,
it is about 200ft above the green so most take 2 clubs less
to play this shot, or take off about 30yds for it which makes it
175/157yds. my 6iron is about 170yds and was on the back green
from the blues.
