Hale Irwin began constructing Coyote Crossing in early 1998 and the course opened on June 7, 2000.
Hale Irwin Golf Design is a nationally recognized company that specializes in design, architecture, and construction of courses throughout the world. Founded in 1986, Hale Irwin Golf Design provides technical expertise and construction observation for specific terrain.
Hale, himself, was fully involved from the design process through completion of construction of Coyote Crossing Golf Course. Irwin believes a course must incorporate two critical design elements: the existing environment and land planning objectives. Coyote Crossing’s features epitomize Irwin’s design philosophy.
The course was designed to incorporate all the natural terrain of this Northwest Indiana site. Located on 175 acres within easy access from Interstate 65 and Purdue University, the course is enhanced with ponds and Burnett’s Creek, which meanders through the property. The scenic beauty of the area becomes an integral part of the Hale Irwin Design course.
As a semi-private golf course, Coyote Crossing is open to the public appealing to all golfers. With five sets of tees on every hole, the course will offer a challenge for players of all caliber. Irwin describes the terrain as “near perfect, with views of open meadows to mature wooded areas”. Yardage of the par 72 layout is 6839 yards from the exhibition markers to 4881 yards from the forward tees.
