The front nine of Coyote Ridge is open and not a lot of fun to play — it's straight, has no character, no trees, boring houses, and there are no interesting holes. After this nine you may be ready to go home, but hang in there and head to the back. What a difference, the back nine is rolling hills, lots of trees, some water, and natural hazards. This nine is what may bring you back to Coyote Ridge again. Both sides have lots of sand but the course is relatively easy if you play from the blues tees.
