Show business has a lot to say about gracing a magazine cover, especially if the magazine has a prominent reputation. It is synonymous to being important and being interesting enough to risk their publication’s sales on the marketability of one person. Same holds true with golf publication. Only the best in the sport – course or player – get that cover story glam. And the Sand Hollow Golf Resort is one of those golf vacation destinations, having been the face of GolfWeek’s March 2011 issue. That, along with being named the #1 Public Golf Course in Utah for the second year in a row.
Sand Hollow Golf Resort is a 27-hole golf facility that sits in the middle of Color Country’s Pine Valley Mountains. The two courses – Championship and the Links – blends perfectly with the surrounding red rock canyons of Utah providing a most picturesque backdrop. The 18-hole Championship course, designed by John Fought, features ridgeline fairways, difficult sand traps and dramatic elevation changes. The Links Course, on the other hand, takes golfers on a time warp: it is like playing the sport in the British Isles from when it had begun, but tweaked with desert features of sand dunes and rock outcroppings. Both are different from each other, but together they make a perfect golf vacation haven for families and golfers regardless of skill levels.
The noteworthy quality of the courses of the Sand Hollow Golf Resort is perfectly complimented by its world-class facilities, particularly the clubhouse, the putting greens, and pro shop. The front page quality of this golf course makes golf trips here one for the books – they’re too beautiful to leave to memory they should be written!
