Utah

If you’re anywhere on Interstates 15 or 70 within the state of Utah, you’re in range of 18 holes of golf. From Alpine Country Club to the Thunderbird Golf Club near Zion National Park, you’ll soon discover that Utah is rapidly becoming a golf capital. Perhaps the winter Olympics games helped people become more aware of the riches Utah holds. Regardless, Johnny Miller, Jack Nicklaus., and Bruce Summerhays have each bestowed their blessings on the state.

Park City may remain a winter sports ski capital, but come summer, the entire Salt Lake City area becomes Golf Country. Many courses near St. George, in the southwest portion of the state, offer golf summer and winter alike. Amongst the many surprises is the Red Rock Golf Trail in the St. George area. Featuring courses like Coral Canyon, Sunbrook, The Ledges, Sky Mountain, Sun River, St. George, Dixie Red Hills, and Southgate, Red Rock Golf Trail alone could make for a golf vacation destination. Don’t let us stop you there, though. Utah serves up plenty more surprises where those came from!

Keith Foster designed Coral Canyon, employing the rich colors of this region of the state, masterfully blending the course with the landscape to yield a fun, modern 7,029 yard par-72 course with a rating of 73 and slope rating of 137. Some 80 acres of turf, two lakes and a hazing of dry washes are complimented by 55 sand bunkers, providing hazards that maintain an edge with a fluid progression to make for a truly challenging, beautiful and enjoyable course.

Twice rated as the #1 course in the state, St. George’s municipal Sunbrook also comes to mind when remembering Utah. Constituted of The Point, Black Rock and Woodridge, Sunbrook is the only facility in Utah to offer up 27 championship holes. Each of the nine hole courses is separate and distinctive. Combining The Point with Woodridge makes for 6818 par-72 yards with a course rating of 73 and a slope rating of 129. The course’s vistas truly are breathtaking and when the orange rays fall on the pastel stone, one can’t help but pause to enjoy the splendor. Challenges include an island green with a decidedly strategically defended follow-up. The newest addition, Black Rock course, provides a challenging second play or a short course if you’ve got other plans for part of the day. While the entire course requires accuracy, especially dangerous are the three holes carved into lava rock. Sunbrook is definitely not to be missed!

Golf Digest awarded Bill Neff’s 36 holes a 4-star rating for his Wasatch Mountain State Park course. You pick between mountain, lake or valley course, with facilities for camping out or parking your RV right there next to the course. The 12th hole is a par-5, and listed in the top 18 holes in Utah. Opened in 1967, the 6972 yard par-71 course has a slope rating of 123.

Park Meadows Golf Club’s course was designed by Jack Nicklaus to open in 1983, and hosts the annual Franklin Quest championship within the Senior PGA Tour. A Scottish links concept, the hazards include over a hundred sand bunkers and water on twelve of the holes. Hole 15 earns a place within the Top 18 Holes in Utah as well. With an appealing clubhouse, the 7413 yard championship course’s par is 72, with a rating of 72.2 and a slope rating of 124 for men. Women play it as a par-73, rated at 74.4 with a slope of 129. Elegant in its design, this Park City course is another consistent pleasure.

Throughout the state, you’ll find beautiful, breathtaking landscapes integrated flawlessly with innovative course designs, making Utah a rich golf vacation destination. Discover it ahead of the rest, and treat yourself to a stop or tour of Utah’s great golf delights!
