Utah

Sand Hollow Resort, St. George (resort).

Opened: August

This John Fought layout adjacent to Sand Hollow State Park in southern Utah begins with several holes that rim a massive sandstone outcropping. The second nine features five holes suspended on imposing red-rock cliffs over the desert, yielding views of distant striated mesas and the Kolob Canyons of Zion National Park. In addition to his championship eighteen, Fought designed a Scottish links–inspired nine-hole walking course with double greens, pot bunkers and a low rock wall bisecting some of the holes—perfect for a casual round.
