Memorable! A must play!

One of the most memorable courses I’ve ever played. I’ve played on some of the best courses all over the country and this one stands out.

There were two courses on my list to play while on my most recent golf trip. This course and another well known course in nearby Mesquite. This is by far the better course.

I left this course wanting to play it again. It was a great experience.

The course was in great condition and very playable for average golfers. Beautiful course start to finish!

Only negative-We teed off just before 8am and there was no beverage cart available till 10am. We were not told this prior to teeing off. That info would’ve been nice. Even when the cart became available we didn’t see the cart until around 11am. 14th hole I believe. Not too critical about a 10am start time for the cart though. Just thought a higher end course would offer this service throughout the whole day. No big deal though.

The food was pretty good. Our group enjoyed the meals we had.

One of the best in the west

Sand Hollow is quickly rocketing up my favorite courses to play. It's fair, fun and scenic with a variety of strong holes. Those four characteristics are the ones I seek every time I'm reviewing a course (along with value). I played with three long hitters who dragged me back to the 6,893-yard blues, creating perhaps the longest course I've ever played. The wide fairways and firm and fast conditions still allowed me to keep up with my more talented partners and have a good time while shooting a decent score. Kudos to the design team for the playability and the maintenance crew for the excellent conditions.
Obviously, the back nine is where Sand Hollow rises up the national rankings. The eye candy of holes 11-15 ranks among the most beautiful stretch of golf anywhere. One player made it through at even par for the first time ever, which earned him a performance bonus in the bet with his buddy. Memorable stuff.
With another nine (the Links) that's also quite good, a short course, a good restaurant, spacious accommodations with multiple pools and Mad Moose rentals for desert ATV/UTV rides right on site, Sand Hollow is one special place.

Gorgeous and a blast

Sand Hollow was my first desert course, and boy did it blow me away. The colors, views, and wildlife were largely unlike anything I had seen before. The golf was just as good. The outward 9 had a links feel, with wide fairways, blind shots, and visual deception. The inward 9 was a bit more flashy. Views and scale dominate your mind during the second half of the round. It played firm and fast for me. The greens were a joy to putt on and all offered their own unique challenges. I enjoyed the front slightly more just because of the quality of those golf holes, but it was a tight race. My only qualm was with the pace of play. The front nine was approaching 3 hours for me. Despite the pace, I wouldn't hesitate to come back and play this gem again.

Must play in St. George

Great day at Sand Hollow. Fun course, with several memorable holes, especially on the back nine. Course was in fabulous shape.

Staff was terrific, both inside and out. Special mention goes to the restaurant - great food and service to match the incredible views.

Beautiful layout!

1st time playing the course.
Front 9 was wide open and deceptive with the distance because of the beautiful and open background of the rocks and desert.
Back 9 amazing views and layout with the course winding through the rocks.
Very enjoyable.
Price was excellent because I played midday twilight and nobody was crazy enough to be in the 110 degree heat. Got the round in under 2 hour.

Average course - above average price

Was told this course was an amazing experience and a must play in Southern Utah. There are a few what I call special holes on the back nine, but the front is pretty average and the rest of the back is pretty average. Even a discounted rate of $76 was too much for this course. It is a $59 course at the most.

Stunning

Sand Hollow has both great vistas and great golf holes. The course plays over, around, and through arroyos, red rocks, and wild desert. The opening 9 holes are some of the best golf in the region. But the back nine—with five holes clinging to the side of a cliff—is spectacular.

Nice lay out

Sandhollow golf course layout is very challenging. There’s some holes that if you miss it to the left you go down into the valley. Beautiful views. The greens are not flat and it is very challenging not to make a three part because of the undulation. It’s hard to hold the greens too.

Extremely poor pace of play but...

The pace of play at this course is absolutely horrid to be honest, but if you are ok with waiting for very slow players this course is worth it. This course is genuinely beautiful and extremely fun to play, the staff is also very friendly and understand that the course of consistently if not constantly backed up.

Fun 9-holer

Played this one after we got finished with the 18 hole championship course. Fun little 9 hole course that gives off a little Irish linksy feel... Doesn't compare to the championship course due to views but a fun little wind down none the less!!

Great Experience

Really awesome course in the middle of nowhere outside St. George, Utah and a 2 hr drive from Vegas. Played it in December on my bachelor party trip.... A little chilly to start (mid 30s) but ended up in the low to mid 50s. The front nine is nice and in good shape but the back nine is what makes this course. Incredible hole designs and views on the back nine. A not so hidden gem getting a lot of national attention. Love the clubhouse design as well. For sure a five star experience!

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.

True Links Experience in Utah’s Red Rock Country

I absolutely love this nine-hole, true links course. I was told in the pro shop that the plan is to eventually add nine more holes, which will give Sand Hollow an outstanding “traditional” red rock desert eighteen plus this true links eighteen. The ragged-edge bunkering, large greens, and multiple playing lines off each tee are so much fun to play. I could play this course every day without getting bored.
My only complaint is that while the well-known and highly rated eighteen at Sand Hollow is a great golf course, I wish the developer would have / could have finished all eighteen links holes when Sand Hollow opened approximately fifteen years ago.
Great course when you have time for only nine, when you need a warm up nine when traveling to St. George from Utah’s “Greatest Snow on Earth” climate that begins just 40 miles north of the St. George area, or when you need an additional nine to settle your group’s action from the round you played on Sand Hollow’s more well-known eighteen.

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.
