Every two years, Golf.com releases the Top 100 Golf Courses you can play in the United States. It’s no surprise that five courses based on St. George made the list:
The Ledges Golf Club offers a world class 18-hole championship course surrounded by the majestic red and white sandstone cliffs of Snow Canyon State Park. Located only five miles North of St. George, The Ledges offers a memorable experience at an average of 5-10 degrees cooler than other courses in Southern Utah.
Located in what many call “Color Country” in St. George, Utah, Coral Canyon’s 7,029-yard, par-72 layout provides breathtaking views of Bryce Canyon’s snow-capped pink spires in the winter and Zion National Park’s green springtime bloom.
Entrada at Snow Canyon. The Johnny Miller Signature Design 18-hole championship private golf course weaves through ancient black lava flows and meandering streams, stretching across 7,085 yards. Entrada distinguishes itself year after year as Utah’s premier golf experience. Entrada is ranked as the number one year-round golf course in the state by Golf Digest Magazine. With over 300 days of annual sunshine, it’s no wonder we’re considered Utah’s hot spot.
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.
The Black Rock Nine is so named as a result of three holes being carved out of treacherous lava rock. The par-four seventh is the most remarkable. After hitting your first shot from a tee located amidst a crowd of molten onlookers, your second shot must carry more volcanic remains plus avoid a small lake strategically placed just to the right of the green.
We look forward to seeing you at Estancia Resort and hearing about your adventures on the back nine.
