Sand Hollow Resort Golf Course Review
If you are looking for things to do in St. George and you are a golfer, or would like to learn how to golf, you may want to take a look at golfing at the Sand Hollow Resort Golf Course. The Southern Utah homes found at the Sand Hollow Resort are also prime real estate.
Sand Hollow Resort is home to Southern Utah's newest 18-hole championship golf course. Built in 2008, this John Fought design consists of a par 72 game over 7,315 spectacular yards , with a course rating of 73.7, and a slope rating of 137. Sand Hollow's stunning layout of well manicured fairways is located just minutes outside of downtown Hurricane and St. George. However, the majestic scenery of this award winning course gives golfers the sense that they are closer to heaven. A 360 degree breath taking view features parts of Zion National Park, the Pine Valley Mountain, the Hurricane sand dunes, and the sparkling waters of the Sand Hollow Reservoir.
The course's design takes full advantage of the area's natural topography and can be described as tough, but fair. Sand Hollow consists of numerous bunkers, deep canyons, expansive elevations, and other obstacles that will challenge a golfer's skills, yet remains highly playable, with wide fairways. The overall quality of the turf and maintenance reaches perfection. Plus, the holes along the back nine trace the edge of some magnificent red rock cliffs, adding to the beauty and uniqueness of the experience.
In addition to the 18-hole championship design, Sand Hollow features a 9-hole link style course and a Himalayan style putting course. The facility also includes a driving range, chipping area, practice bunker, and provides lessons, under the direction of head pro Justin Bloxham. Plus, a club house, pro shop, banquet area, and snack bar are conveniently located on the property to meet the needs of all guests. Upon completion of the Sand Hollow Resort, the area is expected to also consist of approximately 1,700 custom homes, luxury vacation rentals, full spa services, a fitness center, and a 15 acre water park.
The course is open year-round, from dawn to dusk. Fees vary according to the season, but can be expected to range from around $60-$125 per player. However, this does not include the price of a cart rental, which is mandatory at Sand Hollow. Tee times can either be booked online or a reservation can be made by phone up to 45 days in advance.
Overall, the complexity of the desert layout and outstanding scenery make this course unforgettable. The Sand Hollow golf club is quickly becoming a favorite among both locals and visitors of Southern Utah. It is an experience that no golfer should miss.
