Opened in 1996, the Entrada golf course of St. George features an award winning 18-hole Johnny Miller design and is rated Utah's top year-round private golf experience. This scenic course rests at the mouth of Snow Canyon, stretching across 710 acres of desert landscape, that displays views of magnificent red rock cliffs, black lava beds, and rolling dunes.
The Entrada course and community were founded by a team of visionaries including Robert Redford, who had filmed several of his movies within minutes of this highly scenic course. In addition, Entrada's impressive country club was used for the filming of Disney's High School Musical II, a film that became the highest rated Disney Channel movie of all time.
Although the panoramic views for this course are breathtaking, don't get too distracted because Entrada demands accurate shots from the fairways. With narrow greens and holes that are set within lava rocks, many feel the course is particularly challenging. However, the friendly staff of Entrada prove helpful by loading your bags and offering tips for successfully competing each hole. They even have a GPS system on their carts for accurate yardage and the ability to conveniently order food and beverages, while on the course.
The senior pro at Entrada, David Hall, has over 20 years experience at teaching and has been a PGA â€œAâ€ member since 1983. Entrada's one-on-one private lessons can benefit even the most advanced golfers and include a video swing analysis. In addition, members are eligible to participate in a number of other player development programs.
Since Entrada is a private course, it is only open to residents of the Entrada community and guests of The Inn at Entrada. In other words, you must stay on the course in order to get a tee time. Prices vary throughout the seasons. However, packages start at approximately $240 per couple and include one night in a luxurious studio casita, with 18 holes of golf for two.

It is located on the upper level of the club house, promising a majestic view of the course's award winning design, as well as that of the natural beauty that surrounds Snow Canyon. It is truly a one of a kind experience.
