First Time Playing

Go ahead... have a little fun.

Due to a frost delay on the championship course, our group wasn't able to make our second tee time of the day. Instead, the staff at sand hollow was able to squeeze us on this 9 hole Links course... a good compromise for our scheduling issues.

The surrounding views are every bit as stunning as on the big course, but don't expect the same excitement from the golf. This is a pretty straight forward little course... as the Links name might imply. You'll find very generous fairways and far fewer elevation changes than the Championship course.

What's not lacking is fun! It's quick, you can be aggressive on almost every shot, and (especially if you're coming off playing 18 on the other course) you can relax and enjoy taking in the views.

I wouldn't play this course on its own necessarily, but I'd highly recommend making time to play all 27 while you're out at Sand Hollow. It's a nice facility.

Desert Links

First of all this is a 9 hole course. It is not the championship test that the 18 hole course is; however, it is a lot of fun and a great way to warm up. Greens fees are only $35 to ride and $25 to walk. Being a part of the resort, you have access to all the amenities-driving range, restaurant, glorious views from the patio, putting green, etc.
This does play like a links. It is very walkable and not a far distance from green to tee; especially if you play from the tips. The course also has wavy fairways and it plays firm and fast. I found that you wanted to use contours in the greens to move the ball to the hole and off the green you can putt or chip.
The course played in all directions, so the wind is a factor. Another element of links were the stone walls surrounding most of the course. Not the most challenging of courses, but a lot of fun to play. I used it to warm up after a long drive into the St. George area. For the price, it is well worth it.
