1.  Incredible Views

Nestled in the southwest desert landscape, the Championship Course at Sand Hollow Resort takes full advantage of Southern Utah’s natural beauty. The incredible views, including that of Zion National Park, Pine Valley Mountain, and Red Cliffs State Park, create the perfect backdrop for the course. The dramatic elevation change that extends across a towering ridge line makes The Championship Course’s last nine unlike anything else you’ll experience in the West. According to Golf Digest, “To step on the 11th tee is to step on the edge of the world!”. You may be tempted to replace your clubs with a camera on your first shot on the back nine!

2.  Unbeatable Weather

Southern Utah is known as Utah’s golf capital for a good reason. Winters tend to be fairly mild and much more forgiving in this area, making Southern Utah’s golf courses extremely popular destinations for golfers during the winter season. On the other hand, summertime is also a great time to visit, as the off-season results in non-peak pricing. No matter what time of year you choose to visit, it’s easy to enjoy world-class golf year-round at Sand Hollow Resort.

3.  An Award-Winning Course
