SAND HOLLOW GOLF 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 ridgeline, 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.
Par 3, 15th Hole, 215-155 yards
Playing from the Black Tees the green sits perpendicular to the tee box. This leaves a narrow landing area at 215 yards to the middle of the green. The right side of the green is sloped to the left, if you hit that bank too high you will watch as your ball rolls then bounces its way to the bottom of the cliffs. The best shot is to aim at the right edge of the green with a slight draw to find center of the green.
Playing from the forward tees you have a straight look at the green. With the lingering cliffs on the left side anything to the right is going to be a safe play. You still need to watch for the bank on the right side so that it doesn’t kick your ball too far left. With a straight look at the green you have an opening to the right of the front bunker to land short and run the ball up.
