Coyote Springs has announced the?opening of a new feature at the golf?course, Mitch?s Bar and Grill.
Emilia Cargill, senior vice-president,?chief operating officer and general counsel, and Curt Russell, director of operations, said they have remodeled the previous golf club lounge into an area where?golfers can sit and rest after a round and?enjoy the features of a full commercial?kitchen and full bar. ?We are now able to?serve breakfast sandwiches, breakfast?burritos, sandwiches, paninis, hot dogs,?quesadillas, cookies, coffee, juice, mixed?drinks, draft craft/imported beers, draft?domestic beer, etc., with other great?things still to come,? she said. ?We had a?contractor come in and was able to make?this double wide trailer meet the codes?and standards of the Clark County?Health District.?
The facility is open daily from 7 a.m.?till about 6 p.m. or longer if necessary,?during golf play days. ?However, if it?is a rainy, stormy day, we?ll likely close?early,? she said. ?Right now, it?s not so?much about set hours, it?s about what?are the appropriate hours to be open.?
A remodeled golf pro shop is also?open. Cargill said the remodeling added?about 120 square feet additional space,?opening up the front of the clubhouse.??It brings in more light and added merchandise space, and makes the whole shop more inviting,? she said. The shop?is now offering a new camouflage golf?hat, golf attire designed for summer?days, a new shipment of golf shoes, plus?a new line of coordinated ladies golf?shirts and tops.
Cargill explained the history behind?the golf club?s first bar and grill, which?has to do with Mitch. In 2008, shortly?after Coyote Springs opened, a yellow?heeler pup that had been abandoned in?the desert found its way onto the Coyote Springs property. Taken in by staff ?workers, and in poor condition, the pup?was nursed back to health and given the?name Mitch. He has stood watch ever?since and been the protector of the property. Cargill says, ?Sometimes he might?look like he is just lazing around, but we?keep him around anyway. The customers like him.?
Golfers comment, Cargill said, that?they are very pleased to have the bar and?grill open now. ?Those who have golfed?here before are thrilled about it, and the?newcomers equally pleased.?
She said the course is getting well?known enough that golfers will even?come from as far away as Idaho, ?just for?the day, and then drive home.?
In other news, Cargill reported the?owners of Coyote Springs Golf, through?an affiliate entity, Coyote Springs Nevada, are preparing to start completion?of the water and wastewater treatment?plants for the Coyote Springs Master?Planned community. ?That will finish?up the basic infrastructure, and then we?start look at building homes.?
Opening Mitch?s Bar and Grill was?the kickoff for that plan. A permanent?clubhouse out on the course itself is?planned for some time in the future. She?said the future full clubhouse is where?they will probably have a kitchen that?will be able to prepare fried foods and?pizza.
Cargill said opening of the bar and?grill will also give contractors, when?home construction begins later, a place?to come, take a break and relax. ?And we?get a fair amount of drive by traffic, too,?who are also invited to come in.?
A grand opening for Mitch?s Bar and?Grill is planned for a time yet to be announced.
Regarding the golf course, Cargill said?a special offer is now being featured of??Pay for Three and Four can Play.? Karl?Larcom is a golf pro who, along with?Doug Walter and Kyle Graham, can give?golf lessons.
