Top-2 in Southern Utah

Love this course- played it 3 times now, always in excellent condition, scenic, even spectacular (back 9!), not unpleasantly difficult and there's a very friendly staff to start you off smiling.. The greens are superb, fairways plenty wide and play beautifully, the rough isn't penal at all unless you get into some of the rare thick nasty stuff around a green or two, the sand plays wonderfully and there's enough variety and challenge steadily increasing throughout your round to keep your attention all day. Really not to be missed if you're in the area. A little on the expensive side for me, but here you truly get what you paid extra for in beautiful scenery, a nice variety of holes and perfect course conditions.
I give VERY few 5 star reviews- this is one of them.

Favorite course in Utah!

There isn't anything I don't like about this course. The scenery is exceptional and the course is always very well maintained.
I love the variety of holes. There are some spectacular tee shots you get to hit.
I would play this course every week if I could.

Back nine bliss

Unfortunately, an hour-plus frost delay derailed the morning, causing chaos. The staff handled it well, and we decided to forego the log-jam on the front nine to tee off on no. 10.
It was a wise choice because we had the awesome back nine to ourselves with no one in front or behind. The cliffside holes from nos 12-15 are as good a four-hole stretch as anything in the southwest. The views are off the charts, and the holes really fun, mixing a short, medium and long par 4 with a stunning par 3 to wrap things up nicely.
The resort rooms, a short drive from the clubhouse, are spacious, clean and modern. Bonus points for the mini-fridge and microwave in my room. We ate breakfast and dinner in the clubhouse, both very good. I can't write enough positive things about the whole Sand Hollow experience.

Good Condition

Course was in good condition tee to green. Greens were not receptive and also had lots of undulations. Would have liked to see a quicker pace of play as we were a twosome and waited on all shots. Overall the pace was about 4.5 hours. Staff was friendly and the day was enjoyable. Seems a little overpriced but worth playing at least once.

Back nine views

It is not necessarily a fair statement, but nonetheless it is true: players navigate Sand Hollow’s Championship course’s front nine as a means to merely get to the star of the show - the inward half.

The par-3 11th hole and the par-3 15th hole bookend a breathtaking stretch that can only be fully appreciated after playing it in the last light of the afternoon. A setting sun reflecting pink light off the canyon rock is something to behold. Nos. 11, 12 and 13 are as fine a three-hole stretch as I can recall. They are especially memorable because the are not next to a body of water.

The front nine holes aren’t bad, they just pale in comparison to the grandeur of the back nine. The par 5s are short and it is possible to stockpile a few birdies on the front in preparation for hanging on later in the round.

There is GPS on the cart to assist, but beware the ball flies a little further in this dry desert air.

The bunkers are deep and are designed to play as true hazards. Loose impediments abound.

The clubhouse is a modest, yet beautiful structure that is in the style of this region. Full range.

Watch out for the rabbits! They are everywhere.

This course allowed a fivesome to play backing up the whole course. There where times we had three groups backed up on one hole. After we were done we went in for lunch and were completely ignored by the waitress who only had one other table. So we left and went somewhere else

Thank you for reviewing the course as excellent, despite your poor experience. I wish more reviewers would do the same- accurately rate the course, then if you had issues, put them in the comments. Bravo!

Best views of any course I’ve played

This course is a Five Star course for views and layout.
The shape of the course was not good but that may be due to the time of year.
The amenities on the course were not what one would expect from a expensive course. The washrooms were plastic portable toilets and four coolers of water were the only refreshments available other than club house.

Slow pace...

Unfortunately waiting for every shot during a 5+ hour round destroyed our experience at this beautiful course. (and we were a FOURSOME...)

We had a great day playing Sand Hollow. It was good value for the money, beautiful course, good pace of play and spectaular views. Starter was very friendly, welcoming and helpful. We will definitely play this course again when in the area.

Scenic but basic

The course vistas are 360 degrees of beauty. The course itself is pretty straight forward and flat.. Holes 11-15 along the canyon edge are spectacular. It’s unfortunate there weren’t more holes such as this.

I found the course to be in need of water. The fairways were very hard. Taking a divot was next to impossible. The greens were equally firm and in need of water. I’m not sure why the course was like this.
The water buckets for towels around the course were great.

I’d certainly play it again.

Spectacular views

This course was excellent. Great layout and condition. Only problem was that we booked it through GolfNow a week in advance and were locked in to that date. The weather took an unexpected change and was forecast for cool temperatures in low 60's with very high winds of 35-45 MPH and gusts up to 60. Since we could not reschedule, we had to play in these conditions. We saw rain and snow in the nearby mountains. The wind was as forecast and affected everything. Wind affected every putt over 2 feet. The wind moved my ball 3 times as I addressed my putts. The weather ruined my chance to truly enjoy this fantastic course. Took a lot of pictures though. So will you if you play this course!
