This was the first course we played in St George on our visit. The minute you step on the range the views are spectacular. This course had a lot of verity for the most part, some holes a bit on the so so side. The course condition was great and the greens rolled well. I think it was holes 12 and 13 that seemed to slow things down as we were moving along nicely up to that point. The views from around the course were absolutely beautiful and I would play this one again when in the area.

Despite the fact of a few blind shots, this course was fun to play and provided some challenges. The front nine was more stop and look at scenery than actually playing the shot..lol

The back nine was quite basic until you get to 17..

Would play this again if in the area.

Course is in decent condition, for the money it isn't bad. Only good views of the land are off of the course in the background. Disaster was the pace of play. Took over three hours to finish 9 holes, brought it up to the pro shop and the woman didn't care and the pro laughed it off. Not into 6 hour rounds and not playing here again

We did have one day where a corporate event slowed up the course to a three hour 9-hole round.

Most days are 4 to 4.5 hour rounds. We do not laugh off 3 hour 9-hole rounds, our policy is to give rain checks and free rounds when these events occur. Check out our other 90 review, we are sorry you had a bad experience. We can not always tell when slow golfers walk into the pro shop.

This might be the best golf value I've ever experienced. Well kept course in great condition with stunning views of canyons, mountains & rock formations. Our 4-some paid less than a single would @ Kiawah, Bandon or other high end resort courses, and this course, with its scenery, is in that class.

Superbly friendly staff.

If you visit St. George, you must not miss this course. In fact, play it more than once. You won't be disappointed.

Absolutely the best value in southern Utah, but the course conditions rival anyone in the area (in my book, much better). Sometimes narrow fairways with desert sage and lava rocks. So hit 'em straight! Also, it can tend to be breezy, and sometimes windy. Hence the name of the city: Hurricame!

The course was in excellent shape and very scenic but the course needs a qualified manager. There were 4 tee distances indicated on each of the beginning tee plagues but only 3 sets of tees were placed on each hole, notwithstanding the fact that there were multiple tee boxes on each hole that were well maintained. In addition, there are no ratings and slopes indicated on the score card.

When asked about not having some intermediate tee markers between the white and red sets of tees, the answer was that for older men, the red tees could be used. When asked why weren't shorter tees for the older women place, no answer could be given except to say at some point in the recent past, they decided that there would only be 3 sets of tees placed, one at 6302 yds, one at 6014 yds, and one at 5044 yds with no provision for those needing a set of tees in the 5500 yd range or lower than the 5000 yd range.

I am looking at the scorecard and I see the course ratings.<br/> I agree, it would be nice to have 4 sets of tee markers. I believe the greens keeper is trying to keep cost down with maintenance and upkeep. I will mention it to him. If you see a tee box you would like to play, I would suggest you play it, and not worry were the markers are. Just a thought!

It was a warm day but the gale force winds made play interesting in the least. Course was in good condition but only played the front 9 twice. The back 9 started with housing so decided to give the housing a break and stayed on the front which is safe desert style golf. Beautiful scenery. Could have cancelled but came to golf.

I have played Torre Pines, Harbor Town, PGA West,<br/> Banff Springs (Canada), Whistler, and many other beautiful courses; however, none more beautiful than Sky Mountain. I play 60 plus games a year. My wife and I absolutely loved the scenery at this course.<br/> Considering it was February when we played the course was in amazing shape with only one green with damage. One of the most wonderful days of golf ever!

I have played this course quite a few times. It is usually great. But this time it was ridiculously slow. It took almost 3 hours to play the front. I was teemed up with a couple and we played the 10th hole and just quit because we were tired of waiting 10 minutes between every shot. We weren't enjoying the round and we figured at the pace we were going we would never finish 18 before it got dark. They should have marshals out on the course making sure people are moving along.

Sky mountain is one of my top three courses in the St. George, It area. The course offers a risk reward challenge for all levels. The views are breath taking especially 16, 17, 18 you'll want your camera for those. The staff are very friendly and helpful and overall condition is great, love the new green on how four.
