The exceptionally warm February weather pushed the opening day for Coyote Run Golf Course up by three weeks. There have been 600 rounds of golf played since Friday.

Coyote Run golf fees will hold steady in 2017

Golfers will tell you it’s never too early to think about getting back on the links. Lucky for them, there will not be any additional costs in 2017 at Coyote Run Golf Course.

After hearing a report from Tom Denklau, course manager, the Homewood-Flossmoor Park District commissioners on Jan. 3 agreed to keep the 2016 rates for the upcoming season. Various rates were increased in 2013, 2014 and 2015.

Golfers at Coyote Run help break previous record

In 2016, the Coyote Run Golf Course recorded 32,060 rounds of golf. It was a record-setting year.

It surpassed the previous record set in 2015 by 1,000 rounds, or 2.9 percent, said Tom Denklau, Coyote Run manager of operations. That year started with a slump because of a wet spring, but ended with 70-degree days in November.

Coyote Run season ends after a warm, busy December

A round of golf on Christmas? Maybe in Florida or Arizona. But in the H-F area? Coyote Run Golf Course in Flossmoor is closed for the rest of 2015, so nobody will be getting in a quick round while the holiday goose is cooking.
