Gone down hill in 10 years
It's been a decade since I last played at Coral Canyon, and for years I always considered it one of my favorite southern Utah courses. Not any longer. It is showing it's age, and it's not the course I remembered it to be. To give it credit, the fairways were nicely manicured, and the greens were slightly above average. Although a lot of ball marks .However, the cart paths were in need of repair, landscaping is now overgrown, with the paths covered with weeds, dirt, and rocks. Recent floods have exacerbated the problem, but it appears little effort has been taken to fix this.The club house bathrooms were dirty, and toilets were coming off of the mounting brackets.
If this was a municipal course charging reasonable green fee's, I wouldn't be so critical. But when premium
fee's which are pushing one hundred bucks, one would expect premium value and enjoyment for that buck. It just didn't deliver that for me today.
Course maintenance , pace of play & staff
This course is not being maintained compared to the last time I played it. This is especially true around the greens, tee boxes & cart paths. Just does not have that inviting taken care of feeling especially for its desirable setting. Guess the course may still be recovering from previous weather issues. The pace of play was horrible! 6 1/2 hours. Maybe they should think of on course marshals to address this. Wait staff in the bar & restaurant need to take customer service classes.
Decent course, but extremely slow..
Average course. Extremely slow. 5 1/2 hours. Greens not in the best of shape... not really worth the cost.
Our first time in this area. Beautiful course layout. Played the white tees because of the single that joined us, and would recommend using the blue tees for a more typical course yardage. Green to tee is LONG so riding is a necessity for all but the dedicated hikers. greens are quite fast and most are multi-tiered so approach shot placement is important.
Great layout - poor conditions
This use to be a great course in every way. Now, the layout is still great but the course conditions are really lacking. Definitely not worth the money and I got a deal.
A very nice golf course in a beautiful setting. The course was in very good condition, a bit challenging but very playable for mid-handicappers.
Beautiful Course - Slow play
This is a gorgeous course. Nice layout with great greens.
Arrived to find the range closed for mowing at 12:30 pm. That was disappointing.
Enjoyed our playing partners but found the pace of play brutally slow. Was over 5 hours - way too long.
The pace of play was terrible
The golf course was is very good condition for the time of year. The staff was friendly, the cart girl was a little sour, but overall very good. But the pace of play was extremely slow with no help from the staff.
staff very friendly and the course was in excellent condition. if you are in St George it is well worth playing this course
I had been interested in playing this course for a couple of years and finally got the chance to play it yesterday. While it's not the worst course in the world, there are many better options in the area. Why do I feel this way?
1. The pace of play was awful. Our round, which started at 2:30, took five hours. I heard others quitting after nine holes because they were sick of waiting.
2. The conditions are average. The fairways and tees were in pretty good shape but the greens and bunkers were in poor condition. The greens were full of ball marks and the bunkers rarely seemed to have been raked. I understand these issues aren't the fault of the grounds crew but it's worth noting.
3. They are charging premium prices for a decent, though not excellent, product. During high season, they want $110 for 18 holes during the week. In my book, that's a pretty penny for a round of golf.
I could go on and on about little nitpicky details, but at the risk of sounding even more cattish than I already do, I'll refrain. My sense is they have some budget and/or staffing issues going on here. Hopefully if those get cleared up, things will improve.
My playing partner and I did enjoy the layout and I found the course fun and challenging. It's not a bad course by any stretch, it's just a little rough around the edges. We came to the conclusion that it feels more like a city course, lacking attention to details, rather than an upscale resort course. And don't confuse this with golf snobbery, I love a good muni track as much as anyone, I just don't like to pay resort prices for them.
Bottom line, if you can play here for about a third of what they're charging I think you'll come away satisfied, if you pay full rack rate, you'll be left wanting.
A solid day
Played here during twilight which was $65. Don't think it would be worth the full cost. This is a good course; however, it has been a week since I played it and I can't remember most of the holes. The good of it is that nothing bad is remembered; however, it means that the layout was nothing special-just solid.
I will say that it has a putting green, great staff, good restaurant and all of the things off the course were very good.
The course lacked variety. All the par 5s had a forced carry on the second shot over a trench or creek. One or two holes like this is good, but all four became redundant. The par 3s were good and everything from a sand wedge to a long iron were used. I don't remember any par fours as standouts. There is one that is driveable, but it plays into the prevailing wind. Regardless, it is a good layout, but nothing special about it-nothing bad either.
I found the course conditions to be fine-especially for March. There weren't any dirt patches in the fairways or anything like that.
If you are in St. George, twilight is worth it. I just wouldn't have this as the first priority to play.
Great Course in Need of Infrastructure Work
Top notch resort course. Excellent views & in great condition tee to green. Very Friendly staff...especially Gene!
But, the cart path & other infrastructure really needs some work; felt like driving through a construction site on many holes.
I gave it 4-stars because I'm hopeful they will invest in the necessary upgrades.
You couldn't pay me to play this course again.
First and foremost the course was in TERRIBLE condition. The course has baked out with several dead areas of grass in the rough and across the fairways. Different types of grass have invaded the golf course with inconsistent grass types throughout some areas. I played this course last summer and several landing areas which use to be visually open have now become blind due to trees growing in waste areas. Also, the greens played extremely slow and likely had not been cut in 3-4 days. The fairways on neighboring courses rolled faster than the greens at Coral Canyon. I suspect this golf course has loss a significant amount staff members lately and is struggling to keep their heads above water. Don't waste your time and money go play at Ledges or Sand Hollow.
Solid layout with great views
One of the most underrated architects in the country is Keith Foster. He's done several courses I rank very highly, including The Bandit near New Braunfels, Texas, and I can add Coral Canyon to the list. While it doesn't quite have the views of its neighbor, Sand Hollow, the scenery is still well above average with the sandstone mountains surrounding it and large rocks framing holes. Better yet, Foster's design is thoughtful, which forces golfers to think a little off the tee. Good use doglegs and bunkers to frame holes, and excellent greens and conditioning.
Really a fun play
First time at this place.....and I've been to the Mesquite/St. George area several times and weather never seemed to work out when I had a time booked here until this past week. This was by far my favorite this trip (we also played Palms, Sand Hollow, Palmer Oasis and Wolf Creek). Course was in excellent shape however some par 3 tee boxes were under renovation making them shorter. Greens had very good speed and were smoothest of the week. Some fairway areas are pretty tight - this course will be a definite on my list next time venturing to Mesquite. 4.5 stars.
This course is not for a beginner, but tons of fun for all others!
This course was in great shape. You do have to be able to shape your shots or you will run out of fairway and end up in the desert!
Greens were in excellent shape plus faster then they look and trickier to read! Staff was very friendly and the clubhouse was very nice. Only downside is the noise from the majors roads surrounding the course.
enjoyable experience, playable course with great views
