Fun course to play

Sky Mountain is overall a fun course to play, with a few caveats.

The scenery is beautiful, carts are GPS equipped, and the sandwiches at the turn (which you can order before #9) are delicious.

While the biggest views come at the end of the course, I found the front 9 more fun to play, starting right with the beautiful #1, and a few par 4s on the shorter side. The back 9 unfortunately suffers from way too many houses being build on the sides of holes, and blind/unclear shots on many holes.

The conditions were generally good, but some tee boxes were not level, and the greens had lots of unrepaired marks (from many weeks apparently), often making for bumpy putts. A bit of additional love could easily fix these issues.

The challenge level is generally moderate, despite the high winds on the day we played; only the par-3 16th hole was scary in those conditions, and it's still a fun hole.

All in all, it's still worth the play, and the rate is reasonable for this area.

Pace of Play

Both my wife and I enjoy playing this course and taking in the surrounding beauty from so many holes. Unfortunately the pace of play was agonizing. I was told when I called an hour before our tee time and when we checked in a half hour ahead that there were no delays. We tee’d off 20 minutes late and by the turn we reached the turn we’re 45 minutes behind. We ended up quitting after 15 holes. This is such a beautiful course but not sure we will play it again due to the place of play as this was not our first time experiencing slow play at Sky Mountain

Spectacular golf course

This course is a real hidden gem in Hurricane Utah, approximately 10miles away from Zion Canyon! Spectacular setting surrounded by mountains and canyons. The course was in great shape, the greens rolled really well. The best part was we finished in 3 1/2 hours. Try it out I know you will not be disappointed.

Sky Mountain round

My son and I played a beautiful Saturday afternoon. A ladies' tournament was just finishing.
The pro let us go out the back nine first which was greatly appreciated.
The course was in the best shape I have ever seen it.
We had a great time.

Fun course, gorgeous views.

I was in town to hike in Zion, and this was the closest course. Super easy to get to. The course has a fun layout, was in great condition. The only issue I had was it seemed nobody cleaned up their ball marks on the greens. They were a bit beat up. Other than that, friendly staff and worth the money. Last thing, if you want to get out earlier than what they have online, call the pro shop.

Great Course, Challenging Greens

The course was in great shape and had a beautiful backdrop with the red rocks. The overall yardage of the course is short, but it’s still challenging because of the greens. I don’t know if it was the pin locations the day we were playing, but putting was tough. Miss long and you’re rolling off the green! Carts were real nice, too, and showed yardage to hole and other obstacles on the hole.

Great Track.

Always a great classic course. Placed in the high desert in southern Utah, this course is very under rated and affordable. Play here if the wind is mild and you have an amazing day

A break from the Big Boys

Buddies Trip to St. George /Mesquite. Had a great day at Sky Mountain. Easily the best value of the trip. Incredible views start at the practice range. Several memorable holes throughout.

Fairways were a bit shaggy, but not enough to detract from the day. Friendly staff both inside and out.

THIS IS A MUST!!!!

If your traveling or I'm sure if you live in the area, this is must play course, It's so beautiful, the course is in great shape. If anything the tee boxes are a little worn, but the scenery is just breath taking. Very friendly staff, just an overall great experience. Coming from AZ, was sure nice to play a true course where the ball does not roll forever due to dried up fairways.

Fun course

Some great views—including a seasonal waterfall off the back of no 17 and one of the most picturesque driving ranges anywhere. Some of the holes in the back nine weave through a housing development. Most holes are very playable.

Scenic Winter Round

Played a cold winter round the first week in December for the first time and couldn't be more impressed! Conditions were excellent considering a recent rainstorm and cool conditions. The fairways were perfect. The greens, while challenging, were in excellent shape. Tee boxes were a bit challenging: trying to find a level stance was difficult at times. (that's the ONLY negative comment) Staff were polite and professional. And what views! WOW! It's sometimes hard to concentrate on your shot! I can't wait to visit again! 2 thumbs way up on this course.

Enjoyable Local Track

Cold weather (around 40 degrees) and a little wet when we played, but the course was in excellent shape- no bare spots, greens rolled well, rough was easily playable and fairways fine. It's relatively short, somewhat tight, but the real defense is that the greens were pretty tough- several pins were put on the crest of hills or on slopes, meaning uphill for 15 feet- and if you missed, the ball would then trickle down the other side forever leaving you a 6-12 footer coming back up again. My partner had a 30-footer downhill that left him a 15 yard pitch back up from off the green when it finally stopped. Once a bunker shot decently hit landed short of the hole, one-hopped and then rolled down half the green and continued off the side and down a hillI until I was BELOW the sand trap on the other side! It became the worst putting day of the year for me, missing 4 putts from 2-4 feet from watching other's putts break right or left at the hole and then having mine go straight when playing that break. I know, I know... become a better green reader and learn to just bang in those short ones a la PGA. lol Missing shortys isn't a "knock" on the course, that's more on myself, but the greens were still very difficult for this 10-handicapper. To score well, it seemed that you actually need to be able to hit quadrants, not just greens.
Anyway, quite enjoyable, no tricks- minimal blind shots, no hidden hazards, the sand played well and there's some nice scenery to enjoy, too. I'd play it again, no problem.

Spectacular!

Sky Mountain, what a course! Gorgeous from start to finish! The layout and the views over and in canyons is breathtaking in every way! Course conditions were wonderful, friendly staff and an experience not to be missed if you travel to Utah for golf. The one thing is the very basic clubhouse and amenities are lacking, but the course itself makes you forget about that! I would highly recommend this magnificent course.

Challenging course with great fun

Sky Mountain GC is a challenging course that requires strategic play on many holes that create the challenge that every golfer would enjoy; I look forward to the opportunity to play there every year which is a staple in my southern Utah golf trips.

Not very friendly

Our first time golfing with our 10 year old son and they pretty much kicked us off the golf course. Nothing like having the golf course guy following you around. Never really had any body waiting at the golf tee. Only got to play 2 holes. What a waste of time. Really bugged that they would treat us this way
