While Las Vegas comes to life in lights and a whole array of neon colors at night, some two hours away, one desert gem comes to life in all of nature’s colors. Aptly called “Color Country”, this part of Southwestern Utah changes hues and views as often as the season changes and not one is more beautiful than the other. Fortunately for golf lovers, this was captured all too perfectly at the Coral Canyon Golf Course. It does not matter what time of year golf vacations are scheduled; they will always be beautiful hereabouts.
The Coral Canyon Golf Course, an 18-hole par-72 beauty, was designed by Keith Foster and stretches to a whooping 7,029 yards. It was carved out of the desert’s red clay and rocky outcroppings making it a rugged and challenging layout. The golf vacation destination takes the golfers to a myriad of emotions in trying to get past every hole challenged by the natural desert vegetation and other desert features. The best consolation however, apart from a neat scorecard, are the breathtaking and unparalleled views of the surrounding mountains.
At wintertime, the course offers views of the snowcapped pink spires of the nearby Bryce Canyons. The desert also blooms in springtime along with the lush coloring of the Zion National Park. All that combined with the desert colors of Coral Canyon Golf Course paint a vibrant picture of splendor that only nature can create. Golf trips here will surely be colorful; the kind that any golfer would want to paint a picture of to remain in his memory for a very, very long time.
