Sand Hollow Golf Course
Located less than 45 minutes away from the Cliffrose Lodge & Gardens in the city of Hurricane and adjacent to Sand Hollow State Park lies one of the best golf courses not only in the area but in the United States. Having this amazing golf course in such close proximity makes combining golf with the array of other activities that much more enjoyable. Wrapped around unique sandstone castle outcroppings and spanning the cliff terrace above one of the Virgin River’s most scenic gorges are 27 holes you will never forget and will keep you wanting to come back again and again. The course is divided into two unique offerings, a 9 hole links style course and the world class 18 hole championship course.
Sand Hollow Resort’s Championship Course is the perfect balance of Links golf and Southwest desert landscape. Framed by the native landscape, the 7,300-yard, 72-par 18-hole course’s takes full advantage of the region’s natural beauty. Southern Utah’s incredible views and vistas surround the front nine’s red rock outcroppings, natural vegetation, indigenous sand bunkers and rolling fairways. A majority of golfers replace clubs with a camera for their first shot on the back nine. Featuring dramatic elevation changes extending across a towering ridge line, The Championship Course’s last nine are unlike anything in the West. According to John Fought, Course Designer, “Each hole is a difficult birdie, but easy bogey so all levels of players will enjoy playing again and again.” Once you finish your first round on the Championship Course, you can’t wait to come back. The Championship Course’s #15 recently graced the cover of Golf Week Magazine “Best Courses” edition, and was awarded Utah’s “Best Public Course” for the second straight year.
The inspiration for Sand Hollow Resort’s Links Course is found throughout the “Links Land” courses of the British Isles. Flawlessly blended with the desert’s natural sand dunes and rock formations, the full-length 3,600-yard, par 36 course is home to the State’s largest greens and fairways. Hand-built stone “Sheep Fencing” brings players back to the origins of golf, and most visitors expect to see livestock grazing in the longer rough areas. The Links has the essence of an old-world course with a desert twist. Unintimidating for beginning golfers, the traditional style also a unique experience for avid players. Home to multiple youth tournaments throughout the year; the Links is the perfect course for the whole family.
