Southern Utah's Red Rock Golf Trail
Jun 22, 2017
By: Chad Taylor & Jake Wilhelmsen
10 courses within a 45-minute radius. Think of it as the world’s longest cart path.
St. George, Utah, is named for the patron saint of golfing, a stately fellow who hit the desert links back when your caddy was a burro that had to pack your clubs and three days’ ration of water.
This year, skip Scottsdale — too hot! — leave Las Vegas — too many distractions! — and pass on Palm Springs — too many old guys! — and make your way through 10 St. George golf courses (for half the price of those other places!).
Click here to pick your course(s), hotel, and even reserve tee times.
Here they are, roughly from west to east:
Just across the Nevada border so you can try to win back the money you lose to the rest of your foursome.
Shoot through black lava rock and if you hit a sand trap, at least it’s the pretty red kind.
Built in 1960, when woods were still made of wood, this 9-hole course is perfect if you’re short on time.
Walkable, if you want to track some extra steps on your FitBit, with a super player-friendly layout (meaning it’s not as hard as some of the other courses).
Traditional course with favorable greens making it easier to putt for dough.
Lots of water hazards so bring extra balls.
Wide, forgiving fairways. Who doesn’t need those?
Like you’re playing golf in a postcard.
Steep ridge lines, deep canyons, expansive elevations, and less sand than you’d expect from the name.
Challenging and scenic, so you can enjoy the view while you watch your slice disappear into the red rock.
