Abuzz in the Beehive State

Located 30 miles east of glorious Zion National Park, Sand Hollow Resort’s John Fought-designed Championship Course has lived atop Golfweek’s best-in-state rankings since opening 11 years ago. The 7,300-yard course weaves through red-rock outcroppings, tightropes along ledges and perches along ridgelines. Two nine-holers—the par Links Course and Wee Course—add to the enjoyment. sandhollowresorts.com

Trail Mix

An ideal base from which to explore Greater Zion’s great golf, Sand Hollow Resort joins eight other courses—such as Coral Canyon, The Ledges and Sky Mountain—to form the Red Rock Golf Trail, a one-stop website for stay-and-play trips to the region. A bonus lodging option is the plush Inn at Entrada, whose guests get to play the stellar private course at Entrada at Snow Mountain Country Club. redrockgolftrail.com

Rocking It

With views stretching from Pine Mountain to Zion National Park, Sand Hollow Resort takes full advantage of its red-rock setting with luxe rooms, suites, condos and homes sleeping from one to 10. The Grille occupies what Architectural Digest calls Utah’s “most beautiful clubhouse.” sandhollowresorts.com

Nature Calls

Southern Utah’s outdoor appeal extends beyond visits to the national parks at Zion and Bryce Canyon. There’s boating and water-skiing in nearby Sand Hollow State Park, off-roading in the dunes of Sand Mountain, mountain biking along the Anasazi Trail and Gooseberry Mesa and concerts at Tuacahn Amphitheatre. visitstgeorge.com
