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!

Sand Hollow GC review

Huge fairways making if difficult to miss them wide. Very large green complexes but they were contured to a degree that reading them was tough but fair. Did not like the bunkers because of the use of red sandstone and not real sand. The sandstone plays more like dirt and there were large pebbles in it. This is the only reason I did not give the course 5 stars. The back 9 was spectacular in terms of views of the surroundings

SW Utah Gem

Terrific track located in SW Utah. The back 9 has a number of truly awesome holes carved out of the side of the red cliffs. Keep the camera handy.

18 holes of desert paradise

Red Sand! So cool. Really a stunning looking course. The setting is wonderful and the staff was very welcoming.

We had about an hour frost delay, but staff did a great job getting things moving afterward.

Like other courses in the area, I found the greens to be very difficult. Fast and slippery. Very different than the greens in TX.

I enjoyed this layout. The par 3s were all fantastic. Really enjoyed the round, despite playing terrible. The scenery alone is worth the price of admission.

Check it out!

A day at Sand Hollow

I love this course! Starting time of 11:30 AM so the course was not busy. A little warm yet (in So. Utah), but the weather is cooling quickly and the wind was moderate - shifting, with 5-6 mph breezes. The fairways were in very good shape, and the greens were very consistent. Staff is always polite here. And they've added ice-filled coolers to the carts in the past year.

I had a couple of lucky approach shots that gave me birdies on holes that are usually a problem for me (like #6), so I was in a pretty good mood throughout my round. They have pushed a few of the white tees forward - and have maybe overdone it a bit in this regard. Another minor gripe is that the GPS limited carts keep you from access to your ball - sometimes for no apparent reason. I'll ask for a handicapped flag next time out.

This is a "must play" course in So. Utah if you are ever in the area.

Worth playing

... just to experience the back 9.

The place has the look and feel of a muni. Front 9 was ho-hum but the red cliff back 9 saves the course. Conditioning was

fair but could be much better. When I saw the ATV rental kiosk on the drive up the lane to the course, I thought a planned peaceful golf outting would be shattered by noise, but thankfully no one was using them - so it was peaceful.

The course could be so much more of a destination if the owners put the emphasis ($$) in right places.

On a windy day - bring balls!

A must play experience

This is a must play. The 15th par 3 tee from between the rocks is one of the best par 3s in the country. The front nine is a good layout while the back 9 is spectacular. My 2 complaints are.

1. Pace wasnt good and the marshals dont seem to care. Group in front of us was slow the hole round and it was empty in front of them.

2. A couple of greens were rough and the rest were just ok. They have fungus issues really bad on 1 and 10.

First Class

Spectacular course in great condition. Very payable as fairways in general are quite wide. Tricky around the greens. All four of us agreed this course is in the top 10 of all courses we have ever played.
